Style and Substance...

Last night I went to the launch party of Elle Decor's new book, Style and Substance: The Best of Elle Decor. I'm so excited to have a new design book to browse through! It is a compilation of the most incredible homes Elle Decor has featured over the past 20 years. The party was such a success, it was supposed to be held at Bergdorf's 7th floor restaurant which, as I'm sure many of you know, was decorated by Kelly Werstler, but was moved to the 2nd floor as 600 people RSVP'd YES! There are a LOT of people that love beautiful homes! Not only is it beautiful pictures but includes the below which is of utmost help!

-  Trade secrets and essential inside information from A-list designers, architects, and tastemakers
- User-friendly Style Guide boxes with experts’ how-to advice and decorating ideas for every room
- A sourcebook that provides a list of the magazine’s favorite shops and websites for everything you need to furnish your home, all in a wide range of price points.

Domino gave tips and ideas similar to this as well and before their site went down, I printed off everything I could. So happy to now have Elle Decor's guide as the asthetic is a bit different. We need all the knowledge we can get!
