Make Room on the Shelf

We love a good design book (as evidenced by our bursting-at-the-seams antique bibliotheque in the Lacefield design studio)! A bevy of beautiful books are set to launch over the next few months. Where will be put them all?! Some of the book launches we are most excited about:

Boston based blogger/designer Erin Gates' much anticipated first book was released on October 7th. She is in the midst of a whirlwind book tour, which includes a stop in Atlanta this Saturday.  Erin will be signing her book from 1-3 pm at Ballard Designs on DeFoor Avenue.  We have followed Erin's blog Elements of Style for years, and are so excited to meet her in person!

Elements of Style 
Atlanta based Nancy Braithwaite is known for her refined restraint in design.  Her career has spanned forty years with a focus on a singular vision: Simplicity. Nancy's first book, aptly titled Simplicity, is set to release on October 14th.

Atlanta has no shortage of talented designers.  Barbara Westbrook is a favorite.  Her design firm, Westbrook Interiors, focuses on her signature style: tasteful, tactile, timeless and simply elegant interiors. We are looking forward to the release of her book, Gracious Rooms, in March 2015.

Atlanta designer Barbara Westbrook's first book
 is set to launch in March 2015.  Pre-order here.

California designer Windsor Smith has long been known for her fresh approach to modern day living, but her media popularity surged after actress Gwyneth Paltrow purchased the Brentwood 'House of Windsor' in 2012.  Her upcoming book, Homefront, is sure to be a best seller.

Designer to the stars, Windsor Smith, will release
 her new book, Homefront, in April 2015.

Retailer Spotlight: Milly & Grace

Emily Ott Hollister originally planned to spend one summer on Nantucket before moving to Boston to pursue a "real job".   Fast forward several years and Emily is now deeply rooted in the Nantucket lifestyle as owner of one of the island's hottest retail shops, Milly & Grace.  Named after her two grandmothers, Milly & Grace is a thriving family business.  Emily's mother assists with the buying, her sisters help on the sales floor and her best friends manage the store day-to-day.  The trio of sisters, Emily, Allison and Caroline, also run the popular lifestyle blog, The Milly and Grace Girls Blog, together. It looks like Emily ended up with the best kind of "real job" a girl could dream of!
