Let me fill you in on a little something about me.
I have an addiction.
I’m seriously addicted to interior decorating and design books.
I’ve had to create a hard rule for myself. I’m not allowed to buy a new decorating book until I finish the last one I bought. I can’t help it! I love to learn about new styles, be inspired by gorgeous interiors and peek inside the creative minds of interior designers and decorators.
I read every word, take notes and stare at every photo for creepy amounts of time.
I stumbled across Lauren Liess’ blog ‘Pure Style Home‘ before I ever heard about the book she wrote. It was then that I fell in love with her aesthetic. I loved the natural and earthy vibe I got from her style, it’s classic without being too formal.
Lauren Liess loves the outdoors and in her words “likes things simple, relaxed and natural…” She loves creating a strong sense of place with architectural character in homes.
Lauren designs the kind of spaces you imagine yourself cuddling up with a comfy blanket, a good book (uhhhh, maybe hers?) and enjoying a glass of wine (or two) in.
So, the second I was allowed (I have a rule now, remember!), I hit up Indigo to grab my copy of her book Habitat The Field Guide to Decorating. It certainly did not disappoint, learn more in this video about why I loved it!
If you watched the video than you know, this book is my absolute fave right now! The second I got it and started flipped and checking out the interiors featured throughout I was blown away.
What I find the most interesting, is that it’s not the typical aesthetic I gravitate towards, which I think is why I enjoyed it that much more.
I mean, come on. I’m not even into the book and it’s already mind-blowing.
And then this. #wowsahs
And the gorgeousness goes on and on my friend.
On and on.
Oh, and you know what else? I posted one of her interior photos on my Facebook page, tagging her in it. And she liked it.
You can see the image I posted here (and you’ll likely see her name, beside the like)! You should probably like my Facebook page while you’re at it. 😉
