  1. Erin – how do we get information on your book signings locally? For instance in Dallas, the information you sent has the the location listed as Wisteria at 11AM, but there is no information otherwise on the Wisteria webpage. Maybe that is all I need, but wanted to keep up with any changes. Thanks!

  2. Cool giveaway! I pre-ordered your book the day it was available on Amazon and plan on attending your book signing at Canvas in NYC. I hope I receive my copy in time for you to sign. Congratulations on EVERYTHING!!

  3. Erin, I have been following you since that article oh so long ago in the Boston Globe Magazine and I’m so happy for all your success!! Best wishes with the book launch – I already pre-ordered mine, can’t wait to receive it!!

  4. I can’t imagine how flattering/overwhelming it must be that you have so many of us thrilled to meet you in person, own your book and read about you every day. That’s impressive!

  5. Erin! I’m going to your book signing at Ballard Designs on October 11th, and was going to buy the book there. Totally understand if that means I can’t enter the giveaway, but thought I’d at least ask. I can’t wait to devour the book and meet you in person!

  6. Opened up a twitter and pinterest account today just to be able to increase my points! :) If I still lived in Boston, I would have ordered a ticket for the release party so fast-those invites!

  7. Congrats, what an accomplishment! I am struggling to create my rental home my home since I don’t own it, first time I have rented….so this would be awesome!

  8. I am beyond excited to receive this beautiful treasure to my doorsteps. Erin, your witty words and ability to transform spaces and lives is amazing. Your dedication to this blog inspires all your readers and I am thankful each day for your insightfulness and REALITY. You Rock!!!

  10. Erin, congratulations on the book and for following your dreams, what a great inspiration! I will certainly be getting a copy! :) Marie

  11. Hi Erin! I’ve read your blog for years and I am absolutely buying your book! So I definitely want to pre-order so I can enter the giveaway.

  12. What an amazing giveaway!! What I would do to have your expertise while designing and renovating our master suite!

  13. Hi Erin – Can’t wait to receive the book! I ordered it way back in March. Will you be signing books at the Boston launch? Seems like Amazon won’t deliver it in time…

  14. So excited to receive a copy of your beautiful book–pre-ordered on Amazon. Unfortunately, I don’t have a Twitter account, but I follow you and lulu & georgia on Pinterest and Instagram. Congrats and best wishes! :) Dana

  15. Erin,

    We will be able to get your book in Europe, yes? I really hope so as it’s on my Christmas list!


  16. Looking forward to your book signing in Houston, Texas!! My niece and I have followed you for a few years now. We both love your style and cannot wait for the book!!!! Very nice give away too!! You are doing everything with STYLE!! xoxo

  17. I wish you were doing a signing in the Philadelphia area! I have been following your blog for about 6 years now and I am just so excited for you! The e-design prize would be amazing – and exactly what my master bedroom needs!

  18. Hi Erin
    Congratulations on all your accomplishments!! I follow you from Buenos Aires, therefore, I can not pre-order your book!! Saludos

  19. Hi Erin, Preordered from Amazon the first day your book was available. It is being shipped 10/5/14. Sharing this experience with you has been a real thrill for me; the same as watching you transform your house into a very beautiful home. Have an amazing time on your book tour (too bad we will not see you in Florida). You are so deserving of this success; not only are you talented but you are truly a good person. Somewhere, somehow, I am going to meet you. In my dream life I win the lottery, buy the house of my dreams and you will help me decorate. Until then…….

  20. I pre-ordered on B&N and following you on FB. Congratulations and best wishes on your well deserved success. I look forward to reading your blog every morning.

  21. Crossing fingers I win the grand prize. I have an awkward L shaped living area that is driving me crazy! Guidance needed! Even if I don’t win, maybe you could do a post on L-shaped rooms???

  22. EOS was the very first blog I ever started reading – 8 years and going strong as an avid fan and admirer. Every weekday starts with coffee and my dose of EG wisdom, advice and inspiration. Couldn’t be more over the moon for you!


  23. Working from home today…… Santa (I mean Mr UPS should be here shortly)!!! Definitely going to take a coffee break when he gets here!!

  24. Longtime lurker, first time commenter and wanted to say congratulations on your book–it’s so well deserved! I also felt a little bad entering the contest and not pre-ordering the book, because that’s kind of meh. But I’m out of a job right now (hence a lot of blog-reading) and can’t afford it, but as soon as I start earning some regular income, I’m on it. Can’t wait! And once again, kudos to you–it’s quite an accomplishment.

  25. hi erin, where is the armoire and bookshelves featured in the first give away from?? those are gorgeous!! xx.
