A Great New Book & Entry Inspiration

I was so drawn to the cover of Susanna Salk’s new book It’s the Little Things over the weekend while shopping in a small bookshop.  The interesting, layered shot is everything I hope to create in a home and so I bought it and poured over it during Henry’s nap.   I love the concept of creating little “moments” in your home using unique and storied items.  These details truly do MAKE a home.  I highly recommend this book for those of you who just love the details aspect of decorating!

I loved this entry- the combination of funky wallpaper with a more traditional, antique dresser is such a great example of mixing textures, time periods and styles.


I decided to interpret it into an easy to re-create version.


wallpaper // sconce // mirror // shell planter // sculpture // bird prints // dresser // wire basket // rug


  1. Thank you so much Erin! Your fearless style and energy is exactly why I wrote this book in hopes that everyone will be inspired to layer in personal details no matter where in their home! BTW: so crushin’ on that wallpaper you chose! #yourock -Susanna

  2. I love this look! love the rustic chest. I have been looking for ideas for my small entryway, I will purchase this book…looks like a very good read. I have been so inspired by your book and blog Erin, thank you for posting this book as too.

    Thanks Erin!

  3. I admired the cover on your instagram the other day. I love the idea of capturing the moments through our home. I do that in my garden either through the flowers I plant or the color. Nearly all of the blooms represent someone we love, or our love. I have a few things in the house, perhaps I should try more. Thanks for the “pretty” break!
