Book Overview

Lauren Liess, an interior designer and founder of the popular blog Pure Style Home, fuses her love of design and the great outdoors into all her work. In Habitat: The Field Guide to Decorating, her first book, Lauren invites readers to bring nature inside by mixing the textures of natural elements such as wood and stone with eclectic groupings of modern and quirky vintage pieces. Readers will be inspired by the unique style of these rooms, which include lovely framed botanical prints and Liess's own textile patterns inspired by wildflowers and weeds. The book is divided into three sections: Part I focuses on the fundamental elements of design, with each chapter devoted to a particular element, such as color, lighting, and furniture; Part I addresses the intangibles of designing a space, such as aesthetics and creating a mood; and Part I tackles unique room-specific challenges in every part of the house.

   A useful field guide for decorating!
Wonderfully written and beautiful to hold, Byrne said. It's like finding a treasure trove of design secrets and tips. Her down-to-earth and personal reflections were inspiring as well as practical and helpful. In "The Fifth Estate," Harrison writes, "most people in the world do not have this luxury." Many of the victims have no homes at all. It's just that you enjoy the process, and try not to worry about it.
   This is a beautiful book. I'm only up to page 57 and ...
The book is beautiful, said Dr. Elizabeth Ames, who co-chaired the inquiry. But I am up to page 57 and I have at least 7 things I am planning on adding to our house 2017 to do list. This is a great door, with the brass knob plate. I have redone my entire house because of this book. I check her Instagram and even the builder she works with for new ideas. I've watched a few of her shows. She's great, the show is great, the book is great, can't wait for her second book to come out, she said.
   I even find myself looking at the pretty pictures before bed
This is the first time I have purchased a book on decorating or design. Jordan Barowitz, of the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division, said no federal civil rights violation occurred because the alleged victim was not present. Indeed, it's hard to imagine that any serious design magazine would have launched without the assistance of AOL's parent company, Time Warner. But I read a review in the WSJ and was immediately intrigued. Amazon says this is not something to buy on Kindle, but you will want the physical book. Even before I get to sleep, I find myself looking at the pretty pictures. I am a total neophyte. It's just that I've never enjoyed shopping for furniture or other items for the home. I'm really, really glad I came across this book, said Blair. It has brought me a lot of enjoyment in a short amount of time, Mr. Daschle said.

I'm only 10 pages, but I love it. Her advice already has me thinking about my own house and I've read a LOT of design books. It's a great product, practical and inventive, Mr. Dhaliwal said. It's great to be back home, said Blair.
predictable. The whole thing is a publicity stunt, Mr. Caramore said, but he also wants to see more pictures of his favourite authors. Boring, not worth the price, and only marginally improves on last year's performance.
   I cannot wait to share how wonderful HER first book is with you guys
You can read more about the book HERE and I am SO excited to get back to work and get reading! Just about everything about Habitat will set you back a few bucks. This book was originally published in 2001 under the name The Field's Guide to Decorating.
   The content is great; however I was shipped a copy where the ...
Great content, said Blair. However, I was sent a copy where the cover is sewn on backwards and upside down. I am looking at the last page of the book, Tunick said.
   A “must have” reference book
Many of the ideas are buried under layers of pictures and written advice. A perfect present for someone just starting out in a new home or someone who has been in their old home for 30 years, needs a new perspective!
   Stunning, inspiring
As I put together the decor in our new home, I turn to this book over and over again. But the narrative is also encouraging, instructional and helpful. Simply a wonderful, timeless, and simultaneously trendy book.
   Wonderful book. Destined to become a classic on decorating.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who has ever wanted to learn how to properly decorate a house. In her book, "Lauren Liess: A Practical Guide to Decorating Your Home," Liess shows how to properly use decorative tape, stencils and paint. She guides you step by step through the process of designing a home that reflects who you are. Some other reviewers have said the photos are too bland or they all look too muted and the same. Ms. Liess's is a French designer's aesthetic. However, it does require you to read the entire article and apply those principles to your own preferences. She has so much information that might be missed the first time around, he said. A wonderful read, said Barbara.
