Book Synopsis



From Lauren Liess, an interior designer and founder of the popular blog Pure Style Home, Habitat: The Field Guide to Decorating is "stunningly simple . . . a survival book for any budding decorator" (USA Today).

"Not-always-conventional ideas for livening up any space with art." ―Country Living

"Tons of tips, advice, and sources." ―Elements of Style

Lauren Liess fuses her love of design and the great outdoors into all her work. In Habitat: The Field Guide to Decorating, 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 includes Finishes & Hardware, Floor Plan, Color, Furniture, Rugs, Fabric & Pattern, Lighting, and more
  • Part II includes Aesthetic, Style, Mood, Authenticity, Comfort, Luxury, Charm, and more
  • Part III includes The Living Room, The Dining Room, The Kitchen, The Bedroom, The Bathroom, The Home Office, and more
Liess writes in her introduction, "This book is a guide to what I've learned through my work and through my personal experiences, describing in precise detail how I progress step-by-step through the design process to make the decisions that ultimately lead to a fully realized vision. I hope it inspires you to have fun while decorating."

If you are thinking of decorating or redecorating a home, you'll want to have a look at the inspiring ideas that Liess offers--natural, relaxing, and stunning rooms that you, your family, and friends will adore and love to live in.

Includes Color Photographs



Review Quotes




"If you're a nature lover, this book by interior designer and Pure Style Home blogger Lauren Liess may be a fall read to add to your list. Habitat looks at incorporating natural textures such as wood into your decorating scheme, along with florals, nature inspired textiles and vintage décor."-- "Real Style Network"

"In her first book, famed DC-based interior designer and blogger of Pure Style Home brings readers back to the basics by breaking down room essentials (color, texture, lighting) and incorporating natural components into the home (cue backyard greenery). Stunningly simple, this field guide is a survival book for any budding decorator."-- "USA Today"

"In her new book Habitat: The Field Guide to Decorating, designer Lauren Liess shares her favorite, not-always-conventional ideas for livening up any space with art."-- "Country Living"

"Lauren Liess's Habitat has tons of tips, advice and sources. . . . Simple vignettes throughout inspire me to simplify and add more vintage and antique items to my house. This will be one I reference for a long time!"-- "Elements of Style"

"Liess proves an ability to mix natural elements composed of stone and wood with decidedly modern and vintage items (some of which can be rather eccentric). Figuring into many of the interiors we see in the book are some of Liess's textile patterns, the sources for which often originate with wildflowers and other foliage. Liess is as methodical in her design work as she is in the organization of the book."-- "MILIEU magazine"

"Liess's design approach is family and pet friendly, with an earthy neutral palette and an eclectic touch. Design is always personal, but no matter your design style, Habitat is a comprehensive guide to her step-by-step design process and decision making."-- "Portobello Design blog"

"Rich with thoughtful advice on how to create livable, comfortable rooms that bring the beauty of the outdoors inside."-- "Garden & Gun"

Perfect for bookshelf decor! Love the bold black text of the title on the spine and the neutral color of the book. All about neutral decor items, so this works great!
