Erika Brechtel

Creative Director

Desiring an online space to explore well-rounded, inspired content in all topics she loves most, Erika created 'The E List' (formerly the Small Shop blog) in 2010. When not enjoying an “occasional" glass of wine and wanderlusting for even warmer climates, Erika can be found sharing laughs with friends and family, and trying her very best to keep up with her 6-year old daughter (yet failing miserably).

  1. OH! the then and now of L!! So sweet!

    and your house looks so, so great. I’m more than a little jealous.

  2. Thanks for sharing all these beautiful photos !! I LOVE your home, it is so inspirational. Definitely envious!


  3. LOVE your home! I really love the way you mix things together and totally pull off a look that is fresh, modern and ultra cool!

    1. Thank you Laura! You know what you like, and you know when you’ve gone too far from that. I’m not really sure how to define what that means for me!

  5. Wow, what a beautiful home you have! Would love to see more pics of your living room, those couches look divine!

    1. Hi Jodie! Yes I know, the living room has always eluded me. But I am very close! Got my beni ourain rug, and working on my large abstract painting. Just need to find the perfect coffee table (subject of new post). Then, it shall be revealed. Heh heh. ;o)

  6. Hi there! I just wanted you to know that ADORE your home! The colors, the accents, the gilded touches…it’s all right up my alley and sure to be a huge source of inspiration for me as I fumble through my own decor updates. Thank you for sharing your talent with us!

  7. Gorgeous home! I love the chic-contemporary-mod look with bold accents and splashes of color. You have a great eye and I am very inspired by the design of your home. Just came across your blog today. You are one very talented woman!

  8. Your place is so classy and beautiful! The things I would cook in your kitchen….

    Job well done, lady! Totally inspirational.

  9. Wow! I remember your daughter’s nursery (and your blog I guess) as one of my first blog reads a few years ago. I found it long before I had a blog or officially followed others. I was so sad that I never could find it again when I was designing my daughter’s nursery. And now here it is amongst one of my favorite houses! I just love your design and style and your shop! Thanks for making such pretty things! xoxox
