Almost every coffee table styled with books on Instagram or Pinterest, has Erin Gates' decorating book Elements of Style somewhere in one of the stacks. The pretty black and white stripes of the binding make it a standout.

Our living room

Erin recently did a tour of her home on IG stories. It was stunning! I loved her designing and styling, and the way she combined things to create a somewhat dressy, yet comfortable home.

You can watch the tour for yourself here on Youtube.

After watching the tour and loving her home so, so much, I decided to add her book to my slowly growing collection of decorating/coffee table books. But here's the thing: somehow I managed to order not one, but three books! I know, I know. Don't ask me how it happened. I genuinely have no idea. When I opened the Amazon box, and the books just kept coming. The plan was to just send them back, but my husband--of all people--said, "You could do a giveaway."

So, guess what? I'm doing a giveaway.

I'm giving away the two extra books I accidently ordered. Head over to my Instagram account (@woodbanklane), and look for this photo. All you have to do is follow @woodbanklane, like the post, and tag a few friends. What could be easier?! Two winners will be chosen at random next week.

Good luck!
