Fall is a nesting period for me. The kids are back in school, the weather turns crisp and lovely, and I spend more time indoors. Since I work from my home and stare at these walls all day, every day, I often want to mix things up and look to interior design books for inspiration.
Enter Southern Living Style, a hardcover interior design book released just a couple of weeks ago. Its pages are rich with gorgeous design ideas that mix modern with traditional, kitsch with classic, and the beautiful photos are paired with pages upon pages of helpful home decor tips that you can use in your own home without the help of professional contractors or designers. As I went through the book, I soaked up so many inspiring ideas for my own home: from new storage ideas for my office to re-purposing existing furniture to creative family photo displays. The authors of Southern Living Style did an incredible job of bringing readers real-life solutions and presenting them in simple, exciting ways.
The book is divided into four main sections: defining Southern style (materials and design trends significantly Southern), living the southern style in every room (breaks down design ideas by room), reinventing the old (fun section for all of my DIY friends!), and Southern style file (helpful resources).
One of my favorite parts of the book is at the end of each room section, there are two pages that help you pull together the looks on the previous pages.
I am delighted to have the opportunity to share one hardback copy of Southern Living Style to one lucky Urban Bliss Life reader!
