Lauren Liess, an interior designer and founder of the popular blog Pure Style Home, fuses her love of design and the great outdoors into all her work. In Habitat: The Field Guide to Decorating, Lauren invites readers to bring nature inside by mixing the textures of natural elements such as wood and stone with eclectic groupings of modern and quirky vintage pieces.
Readers will be inspired by the unique style of these rooms, which include lovely framed botanical prints and Liess’s own textile patterns inspired by wildflowers and weeds. The book is divided into three sections:
Part I includes Finishes & Hardware, Floor Plan, Color, Furniture, Rugs, Fabric & Pattern, Lighting, and more
Part II includes Aesthetic, Style, Mood, Authenticity, Comfort, Luxury, Charm, and more
Part III includes The Living Room, The Dining Room, The Kitchen, The Bedroom, The Bathroom, The Home Office, and more
Liess writes in her introduction, “This book is a guide to what I’ve learned through my work and through my personal experiences, describing in precise detail how I progress step-by-step through the design process to make the decisions that ultimately lead to a fully realized vision. I hope it inspires you to have fun while decorating.”
If you are thinking of decorating or redecorating a home, you’ll want to have a look at the inspiring ideas that Liess offers—natural, relaxing, and stunning rooms that you, your family, and friends will adore and love to live in.
