NY Times best-selling author, interior designer and the blogger Erin Gates is back with a new book! Elements of Family Style: Elegant Spaces for Everyday Life is a family-friendly guide to great design. In the pages, she proves that families don’t have to compromise — you can live in a beautiful space and still have it be safe and durable for little ones.

To be honest, this might be the most helpful design book of the year. Erin goes room by room, sharing honest design advice and gorgeous inspirational photographs. In each space, she outlines what items are worth the splurge, and where it’s best to save your money. She details the best materials for a kiddo-friendly home, and what spaces you can designate as adult-only, no guilt attached. Needless to say, there are countless tips for every area of the home. And much like the content you’ll find on her blog (Elements of Style), Erin is open and vulnerable about the not-so-pretty parts of life: “struggling with infertility and becoming a mother, managing a business, overseeing her own home renovation, and finding time for her marriage.”

Once you’ve combed through the book once or twice (or eight times), you can get the style in your own home pretty effortless via the new Elements by Erin Gates Signature Collection, available exclusively at Wayfair. We told you she made this whole “elegant spaces” thing a breeze!
