Contreras writes in her introduction, “During my time in the design industry, I’ve come to realize that la dolce vita starts at home because that’s where we are our truest selves. Our homes can help us live the lives we want and can be tools for living. They provide an environment where we can retreat from the rest of the world and set the stage for the type of life we want to live. When things look and feel good at home, this feeling serves as an impetus for living beautifully in other areas of our lives.”
With stunning photography and accessible-yet-elegant tips, Dream Design Live fuses interior decorating advice with lifestyle recommendations and demonstrates how living a happy and satisfying life starts at home.
