Interior designer Erin Gates, author of the blog Elements of Style and the New York Times bestselling book of the same name, says you can have a beautifully designed, stylish home that also contains children, pets, and all the glorious mess of family life. This all-new book is packed with her signature honest advice, inspirational ideas, and lessons learned about combining style and function when creating nurseries that evolve into bedrooms for big boys and girls, repurposing basements as playrooms, and making the open-plan kitchen and family room work for the whole family. Erin walks you through each room in the house, pointing out where to splurge and where to save, which stain-resistant fabrics are durable yet beautiful, how to organize storage so that clutter doesn't become chaos, and ways to create retreats that adults can truly appreciate. Like a best friend who has a knack for style and a taste for fun, Erin opens her front door and invites you into her life and all of its beautiful imperfection.
