Can’t you just imagine it? Living a life in the country surrounded by fresh air, green grass and quiet?
Whether you dream of country living or need some practical tips on creating a comfortable and stylish home, design expert Joan Osofsky and co-author Abby Adams have plenty of wisdom and photo inspiration in their book Love Where You Live: At Home in the Country.
One of our favorite things about country living is the simplicity of it all, which the authors of this book capture so beautifully. Open shelving and eclectic, collected china… Fresh tomatoes from your garden on the cutting board…
Talk about a stylish mudroom! This stone is beautiful, adding a hint of that mountainous, outdoorsy feel. One of our favorite things about country living — and this book — is that there seems to be less of a need for everything to be perfect. Part of the beauty is in the authenticity of it all.
Anytime, any place, from the country to the city to the seashore, there’s something about adding sunflowers to a table that completely changes the mood. We don’t have to tell you that dining al fresco is one of our very most favorite things. And at a table this charming, who could resist?
Without a doubt, one of the most crucial parts of country living is what’s happening outside. In Love Where You Live, while interior design is important, landscape and exterior design are equally figured — and endlessly charming!
But the very best thing about Love Where You Live is that it beautifully illustrates that country living isn’t just about one sense of style or adhering to “rules.” From lovers of the uber-traditional to those with more modern tastes, anyone can be at home in the country. Furthermore, even those without the country on their radar can use Joan’s tips to recreate their houses and love where they live.
