30.99 (approx. price)
A home is a sensation. That's the premise of Lauren Liess's third book, which delves into the emotional relationship between how we decorate our homes and how we live our lives. She encourages people to look beyond their homes and consider how design might help them live a more intentional, happy, and honest existence.
The book provides practical design advice as well as never-before-seen case studies of a farmhouse, a cabin in the woods, a Spanish colonial, and other more conventional homes. Each case study delves into a practical design element (such as proportion, scale, and colour) while simultaneously emphasising the home's emotional value. Comfort, peace, excitement, belonging, carefree, love, and contentment are all themes that run through the chapters.

It is not only pleasing to the eye, but it also increases the quality of our life. Athena Calderone digs into her international network of interior decorators, fashion designers, and tastemakers in Live Beautiful, her highly anticipated design book, to demonstrate how carefully made rooms come together. She also welcomes visitors to two of her own homes.
Calderone shares the initial spark of inspiration that sparked their design journey with each homeowner. She then deconstructs the rooms' intricacies, such as layered textures and patterns, curated objects, and bespoke vignettes, and offers advice on how to incorporate these elevated components into your own home. Live Beautiful is both a showcase of excellent design and a guide to putting together a thoughtfully put-together house, thanks to Nicole Franzen's stunning photographs.
At Home: Evocative & Art-Forward Interior
25.49 (approx. price)
Interior design is a living extension of art that should be handled, used, and loved, not sterile or stagnant. Brian Paquette's interiors are based on this philosophy. Paquette analyses each client's interests and lifestyle to build houses that reflect their individuality, history, and aspirations, starting with the tagline "Function and comfort, first and always." A client's experiences are translated into an emotive presence in the home through the arrangement of furniture, exposure to light, surface texture, and art, tying them to their past while offering a space of comfort and function for their future.
At Home provides inspiration to replicate these methods in your own home regardless of style or budget. How does a person keep their memories alive in a home? Through fabric? A particular scent? Surface texture? Light exposure? Considering these elements and others, this is how Brian Paquette builds a room. By sharing each unique process of design for the ten homes featured in his book, readers can begin to consider their own memories and aspirations for how they too can create a home interior that is a true reflection of themselves.
