From the beloved couple behind Masters of Flip, a warm and inviting guide to making wherever you are feel like home
Home isn’t just a place to sleep and eat. It’s a haven—a place of refuge from the world, of connection with the people (and pets) you hold most dear, of celebration of life’s biggest moments and of recuperation from the exhaustion of the day. Kortney and Dave Wilson have built their careers and a beloved HGTV show, Masters of Flip, around creating houses that people instantly recognize as home. They build colour, joy and family into the design of every house they flip in Nashville, Tennessee, because those priorities are what shape their lives.
Live Happy offers hundreds of fresh, fun ideas for how readers and fans of Masters of Flip can inexpensively and creatively build joy into their lives and their homes. From the reason you should always live close to the ice cream shop to the definitive philosophy for dealing with your junk drawer, it will help you make a new house into a home or inject new life into your forever home. It will go beyond design to personal connections, with stories of how Kortney and Dave found each other, built new dreams together and manage to have a happy marriage (and business!) while raising three amazing children.
Full-colour and heavily illustrated, Live Happy will feature over 200 photos drawn from Kortney and Dave’s family and design projects. Think of it as The Wisdom of Sundays meets Domino with a shot of The Magnolia Story. Through it all, Kortney and Dave’s voices will be in hilarious and heartfelt conversation in the way fans have come to know and love on Masters of Flip.
