About This Book
Design expert Joan Osofsky of Hammertown Barn, a popular lifestyle store, shares her in-depth knowledge on stylish modern country living with a collection of creative ideas and real-life tips for making your home warm and welcoming. Joan Osofsky’s liberating philosophy about cozy and comfortable living in rural settings and ideas about how to achieve a modern country look are exemplified in the charming and inviting houses from across the Hudson Valley and New England that are profiled in Love Where You Live. Full of practical decorating tips and easy and casual hosting ideas, this book features a range of traditional and contemporary house styles that are truly inspiring for today’s informal country lifestyle—airy, minimalist living rooms look out onto the lush countryside; a rustic tiled floor shines through a sleek glass-topped table of a dining room; a welcoming, roaring log fire warms a great room with rough-hewn beams. Each embodies a shared aesthetic that is all about good design, a relaxed lifestyle, and an authentic sense of place and personality. This beautiful book shows us how to make our homes reflect the passion, the unique vision, and the soul of the people who reside there.
