Women to Watch in '09: Blogging

Erin Gates is a Boston based interior stylist and blogger whose daily read, Elements of Style, was a big inspiration in starting my own little project. In conjunction with the blog, Erin runs Element Interiors, where she uses her stylish roots (she describes herself as the product of a passionate self taught architect and an effortlessly stylish mother) to bring affordable, accessible design to up and coming young Bostonians.

I first came across Erin when the Washington Post featured her blog post about Carrie Bradshaw's apartment renovation from the SITC movie. I immediately read every post that Erin had ever written and increased my Idea Folder about 10 fold with all of the amazing images she posts daily. In the past year, Erin's business and blog have blossomed and I get excited each and every morning to read about what she has coming up next.

Did I mention that Erin's wedding was featured in Inside Weddings magazine, see all the pics here.

In November 2008, Erin was profiled in Improper Bostonian magazine featuring not just her stylish interiors, but also her stylish wardrobe. With a joint love for fashion and interiors, Erin does weekly "Fashion Fridays" on the blog. Erin also regularly features her own home on the blog.

I was glad to know that I am not the only one with a fascination for nurserys, kids rooms and stylish baby gear (I've been know to stop people on the street to inquire about the brand of their baby stroller) even though I have no children in sight. This is a nursery she helped to style based on a client's favorite sweater.

Another piece of work featured on the blog, a kitchen renovation.
