“In Down to Earth: Laid-back Interiors for Modern Living, designer Lauren Liess shares how she imbues any space with warmth and energy.” ―Martha Stewart Living
Let Lauren Liess, star of HGTV’s Best House on the Block, walk you through her decorating process step-by-step.
Lauren takes you beyond the basics and invites readers to incorporate the main components of her familiar design aesthetic: nature, easy living, and approachability. She wants to help you create a home where humble materials and found objects are celebrated, a home in which both style and soul might endure throughout the years.
With evocative photos and substantive design advice, Down to Earth focuses on creating a lifestyle that inspires creativity and functionality. Chapters here include Point of View; Timelessness; Something Old, Something New; Nature; and Simplicity. Lauren believes that creating a home means creating the lifestyle you want—relaxed, unplugged, natural, and full of beauty. Here she shows readers how to incorporate six guiding principles in six unique homes:
- A new farmhouse
- A classic American historical home
- A lakeside contemporary house
- A modern villa
- A turn-of-the-century American foursquare
- A cedar and glass house on a bluff
Lauren writes, “Down to Earth explores the key elements of my aesthetic through a collection of homes that I believe embody the natural, relaxed, collected, and easy way of living I’ve come to love so much. . . . I hope this exploration into what down-to-earth means to me inspires you to create your own carefree, easy, and most important, fully present kind of life at home.”
