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.

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.
