Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A complete lifestyle book, encompassing fashion, interiors, and gardens

Attention, design and style mavens! There's a lot more to America than just the east and west coasts. Today, innovative American design—in clothing, home decor, even gardening—is emerging from the Midwest. So lay your bicoastal biases aside, and let Amy Butler show you what's happening in the heartland.

Helping her fans jumpstart their own creative spark is Butler's fashion credo, and her approach has won her a huge following. Her "Mid Mod" philosophy—neither homespun nor haute couture—is as up to the minute as it is firmly rooted in Midwest tradition. Emphasizing simplicity and integrity of craft, Butler is passionate about recycling materials, reinventing vintage looks, and taking joy in the homemade. Her approach—drawing its inspiration from the natural world and the lives of real people—is organic in every sense of the word.

Amy Butler's Midwest Modern brings the many aspects of its author's vision into focus, from re-imagining the home as a retreat for relaxation and dreaming, to picturing the body as a canvas for creating one's personal style, to looking to nature as a "sketchbook" for design ideas. Vibrantly illustrated, the book underscores design's practical side, with information on budgeting money and time, a shopping resources list, and "how-to" projects in every chapter.

Synopsis:

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 Liessandrsquo;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 II addresses the intangibles of designing a space, such as aesthetics and creating a mood; and Part III tackles unique room-specific challenges in every part of the house.

Synopsis:

Offering a fresh, spirited take on American style, this volume by a rising star in home decor expresses her personal vision across home, fashion, and lifestyle, and addresses the practical side through information on budgets, shopping resources, and time. Full color.
