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.
If you want to enter to win a copy of Creative Style: Liveable Loveable Spaces that features more inspiring homes like this one, simply leave a comment below.
