"Erin Gates's incredible eye for beauty is matched only by her funny, raw, and honest voice. I am such a fan of this gifted woman and this gorgeous book." -- J. Courtney Sullivan, author of The Engagements and Maine
"Erin's book is a breath of fresh air, just like her witty, engaging, and informative blog. And unlike most decorating books, I actually read this one!" -- Holly Becker, author of Decor8
"The thing I've always loved about Erin's blog is how well she balances the personal and professional while making it fun and informational. She has translated that seamlessly into this book, where you get a sense of not only who she is but also expert design advice. And her cheetah print stairs had me at hello... followed by a quick "damn gurl!" -- Emily Henderson, HGTV host
“Of course I loved seeing the hints of David Hicks in her beautiful design work, but what struck me the most was the undecoratorly way this book is written. Hugely refreshing. Erin is a joy both in print and in person.” -- India Hicks
"Filled with her trademark no-holds-barred prose, charming anecdotes, and practical advice." ― Houston Chronicle

"[Gates] has a knack for combining practical advice [...] with humorous reflection on mistakes and lessons learned over the course of her 10-year career as an interior designer." ― BookPage
"Her advice is glamorous yet practical and often served up with humor." ― Washington Post

It reads like a chat with a friend. I do highly recommend this book and I am waiting impatiently for the second one.
For those into pure technical, soulless kind of text-book advice, maybe this is not for you, though this book gives a good insight into the practicalities.
Thank you, Erin👏
