Today is a special day here at Town and Country Living. I’m so honored to be able to give away a copy of Creative Style liveable loveable spaces by Lizzie McGraw. It includes the words of Fifi O’Neill and photos by Mark Lohman – always a winning combination! To enter for a chance to win, simply leave a comment at the end of this post.

I was excited when Fifi approached me about offering a free copy of this gorgeous coffee table book. There are several homes featured throughout the pages, and I’m happy I get to share one of those houses – the home of Lizzie McGraw herself! Lizzie is an interior designer and owns Tumbleweed and Dandelion located in Venice Beach, California. Be sure to check out her online store. She has beautiful home décor items for sale.

You’ve probably seen Lizzie’s porch on Pinterest hundreds of times. With its blue floor and red screen door, it sets the charming stage for the wicker bench and plants.

Step inside and enjoy the appeal of lovingly worn pieces mixed with newer elements. You’ll see all these photos in the pages of the book.

Soft textiles pair with vintage finds to create lived-in look that offers casual comfort.

Perhaps the first thing that catches your eye in this comfortable room is the Welcome Firemen sign. And just below it is a very unique coffee table that picks up on the shade of red lettering. Bamboo shades add a bit more texture to this white room with its beautifully slipcovered sofa.

More texture abounds in another white living room with its natural wood ceiling, sisal rug, and basket pendant light. I’ve always loved hats displayed on a wall like you see here.

The opposite side of the room boasts a beautiful wooden armoire – and look at the diamond shapes on the French doors. So unique and pretty.

Vintage finds personalize the gorgeous kitchen. Woven baskets are corralled in a large wire basket suspended from the ceiling. An oversized basket crowns the beautiful wooden hutch while white subway tiles provide the perfect accent to natural wood cabinets. So much to love in this space.

Here’s another photo you’ve probably seen all over Pinterest. You’ll get to enjoy it (and more) in the pages of Creative Style. I’m loving that Cherries sign and the herbs growing from baskets hanging along the wall. I need to figure out how to do this in my own kitchen.

A friend of mine had garden furniture for the table and chairs in her dining room and it looked so fresh and airy – just like this dining space in Lizzie McGraw’s home.

Okay – I’m obsessed with this basket pendant light. I’ve been searching for one for my dining room and this would be perfect. Subtle touches of blue give this bedroom a bit of a coastal vibe. I’ve always wanted white painted floors like you see throughout this home, but I fear I couldn’t keep them as clean as I’d like.

This beautiful bedroom proves you can make the most of a small room. The worn, blue doors create a headboard that’s layered with a portrait painting. The red rug provides a pretty shot of contrasting color. Don’t be afraid to go bold in small spaces.

Let’s head outside to see all the interesting outdoor living spaces, which are just as creative as the interior rooms.

It’s always a great idea to create intimate gathering spaces outside. Think of ways you can create zones in your yard and you’ll find you’ve created an entire outdoor journey through your landscape.

  21. We once had lawn furniture in our living room for months while we {ahem} had “discussions” on replacements for the sectional that my sister had bought on the condition she could have it immediately….hence the not being ready to buy new furniture. Let’s just say that it was not as inspirational at the dining space above.

  22. Just seeing these luscious spaces has awakened my desire to get going with a few projects that I’ve put on hold for awhile. I love the mix of textures and the comfortable vibes in each area, whether inside or out.

  32. Her white kitchen looks so informal and not as sterile as many of today’s new builds.

I’d love to have this book to look and dream all the way through.

  33. I love all the beautiful photos that inspire all of the possibilities for me to create so many different ways of comfy and cozy, peaceful and pretty rooms inside and the outside of my new home.

I also saw in the 4th pic posted she had a cream crocheted throw (at least it looked like one to me) draped over arm of sofa. I have had one (which I made) on my sofa for ages…..Love the look with cream pillows.

    Winning a copy of the book would be icing on the cake! 😊

  50. I love the use of unpainted pine in the cielings and furniture, and the reflection of colour in the blinds.
    The juxtoposition of the shabby dresser and elegant lamp is playful…..and brings attention and highlights both.
    Using old doors behind the bed and in the garden room is a fun use of the repuposed……..

  51. Absolutely inspiring! This would be a perfect way to spend an afternoon, reading about all the beautiful homes!

  58. I dearly miss California and that wonderful California cottage style, with a little French and international influence thrown in! Born and raised there, and having lived all over the state, I can tell you that there IS a specific style to California, which is driven, I think, by the beautiful quality of light that you get. At any rate, the book appears to be right up my alley and I will keep my fingers crossed that I may win one!

  59. Stunning!! I have a paper copy of that porch from a magazine cover years ago! It has been my inspiration for MANY years. So great to see it again.

  61. I absolutely love your CHERRIES sign in your kitchen. Saw something similar years ago and have been on a quest to find a similar one..to no avail. If you ever want to part with her…let me know!!!! You have a gorgeous house and should be very proud of it.

  62. Thank you for sharing these beautiful images. I love the combination of rustic, comfort and elegance. Those are hard things to pull off together and these images show just how beautiful a room or environment can be when it is done well.

  63. Lizzle your rooms are so creative. I would love to win a copy of your book’ “Creative Style:Liveable Loveable Spaces”.

  64. Would be so thrilled to receive this your book. The pictures have me checking out every corner of every room. I’m on the search for about 20 items you photographed!! Thank you!!!
