About the Book

"The secret ingredient in successful interior design lies in the art of layering: arranging all your disparate things so that they work together. From Amber Lewis, the trendsetter designer known for her effortlessly layered look, comes a book for attaining a modern eclectic style"--

Book Synopsis

NATIONAL BESTSELLER - The trendsetting designer known for her effortless style shares the secrets of the art of layering, with more than 250 gorgeous photographs of her signature interiors.

"Livability is my true north. The materials I use time and again all change with age and wear. Not only is that okay, it's how you achieve more than a re-creation of what you've already seen, or what somebody else has done. You can do this, too--I promise."--from the introduction

Designing a room with all the vibes comes down to how you layer your décor. The more you can mix the elements of your room--your pillows, objects, patterns, and lighting--the more finished it'll feel: not too new, not too old, but just right.

Known for her eclectic approach that stems from her California cool, Amber Lewis trains your eye in Made for Living, offering friendly advice on everything from nailing that perfect shade of paint to mismatching patterns with wild abandon to choosing a stone finish for new countertops. These pages will help you design a home that's made to be lived in.

Not for "All sorts of styles!"

I'm disappointed! I did not buy this to be a coffee table book, which apparently every other reviewer did. I was hoping to learn some different style concepts. So if you love white walls and white cabinets with some wood thrown in, go for it. I flipped thru the whole book and not one picture has a colored wall. This is a very disappointing representation of "All sorts of styles"

Pretty coffee table book and overall Amber’s style truly fits what I actually love and create in my own home. That being said, this is solely a pretty-to-look-at, inspiration photo source for me, as aside from studying each photo to learn from - the actual writing was almost completely unhelpful. The tips are very generic and typically not what is needed to further existing design ability/knowledge.

Favorite favorite design book. To a T Amber’s voice and just so happy to have it live on my coffee table to flip through when I’m looking for a little extra inspiration♥️

I am so glad that I bought this book at Target when I saw it a few weeks ago. Apparently it must be popular because the store and others around me have sold out. It is an aesthetically pleasing book. I love perusing the pages and looking at Amber Lewis's beautiful interiors. There are tips on styling and paint, etc. which I find very helpful as well.

Pretty but Lacked True Value

The images are stunning which is in line with all of Ambers design work...and is of course what lead me to purchase the book to begin with. However other than beautiful imagery, most of which I was already familiar with from her social media and blog, I felt that the book lacked deeper value. We already know White Dove and Simply White are go to paint colors and that mixing metals is on trend. I don’t know I guess I expected more advice that I could apply to my current home or our new construction project but I felt that I didn’t really leave with any key takeaways. I do however like the aesthetics of the book itself and it will probably find a place to live on my built ins.
