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.
