Decorator Paloma Contreras proves that living a happy and satisfying life starts at home.
In Dream. Design. Live., the decorator and tastemaker goes beyond interior design to show readers how to inhabit their homes in fulfilling and beautiful ways. Contreras takes readers through the design process and encourages them to seek inspiration from the approach that works best for them. The book begins with “dreaming” creatively to improve both your life and home. Then comes “designing” a space that turns your dreams into reality. Finally, the author reveals how you can take the welcoming home you’ve created and “live,” spending meaningful time there pursuing the things you love. Suggestions for choosing furniture, lighting, fabrics, and even day-to-day accessories are made simple with helpful grids that cover designs from “Classic” to “Modern.” Contreras walks you through every step, and shows that the most enjoyable spaces are also the most personal ones.
I am thrilled to share my first book with you! Dream. Design. Live. is the culmination of everything I love about design and is filled with practical advice and never-before-seen photos from over a dozen homes. I hope that you will find it to be both useful and inspiring. I look forward to hearing how you #DreamDesignLive!
