Down to Earth: Laid Back Interiors for Modern 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.”
