Down To Earth: Laid-Back Interiors for Modern Living
By Lauren Liess. Hardcover. 8 1/5 x 10. 256 pages.
Down To Earth picks up right where Lauren Liess's critically acclaimed Habitat left off. While Habitat walked readers through the decorating process step-bu-step, Liess's latest title takes a step boyong the basics and invites readers to incoporate the main components of her familiar deisgn aesthetic: nature, easy living, and approachability. With evocative photos and substantive design advice, Down to Earth focuses on creating a lifestyle that inspirtes creativity and functionality.
Throughout the book, Liess 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 tur-of-the-century American Foursquare, and a cedar and glass house on a bluff. While each home has a different architectural style, fingerprints of Liess's dow-to-earth style are evident throughout.
