Down To Earth

Down To Earth

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.

At Home

At Home

Evoking memories of the past and aspirations for the future to create unique contemporary interiors. Interior design should not be sterile or static; it’s a living extension of art meant to be touched, used, and admired. This mindset is the heart of Brian Paquette’s interiors. Beginning with the motto, “Function and comfort, first and always,” Paquette explores each client’s interests and lifestyle to create homes that reflect their identity, history, and aspirations. Integrating the placement of furniture, exposure to light, surface texture, and art, a client’s memories are translated into an evocative presence in the home, anchoring them to their past while providing a space of comfort and function for their future. At Home provides inspiration to replicate these methods in your own home regardless of style or budget. How does a person keep their memories alive in a home? Through fabric? A particular scent? Surface texture? Light exposure? Considering these elements and others, this is how Brian Paquette builds a room. By sharing each unique process of design for the ten homes featured in his book, readers can begin to consider their own memories and aspirations for how they too can create a home interior that is a true reflection of themselves.
