Staff Reviews


Down to Earth features houses that are relaxed, effortless, and celebrate a connection with nature. Designer Lauren Liess draws upon her fondest memories outdoors to inspire her interiors, creating homes that have a simple and natural vibe and are meant to be enjoyed rather than designed to impress. With her use of durable textiles, rustic beams, and great tiles, Liess’s style reminds me of a cross between Justina Blakeney (The New Bohemians) and Joanna Gaines (Fixer Upper), and no doubt fans of either would be delighted with this book.

Description


An elevated yet accessible follow-up to Lauren Liess’s Habitat, showcasing her signature easy-living lifestyle 

Down to Earth picks up right where Lauren Liess’s critically acclaimed Habitat left off. While Habitat walked readers through the decorating process step-by-step, Liess’s latest title takes a step beyond the basics and invites readers to incorporate the main components of her familiar design aesthetic: nature, easy living, and approachability. With evocative photos and substantive design advice, Down to Earth focuses on creating a lifestyle that inspires 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 turn- 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 down-to-earth style are evident throughout.

“In her new book, Down to Earth: Laid Back Interiors for Modern Living, designer Lauren Liess shares how she imbues any space with warmth and energy. She walks us through an arts-and-crafts charmer in Washington, D.C., that she renovated into an action-packed family home”
