Five years ago Lisa Dawson sold her home down in Berkshire and moved to her dream Georgian house just outside York. She and her family had moved nine times in fourteen years and finally settled on their dream home. Her love of period property, thrift and charity shop bargain hunting lead Lisa to share her home journey on Instagram, which became so popular with her followers that she went on to keep a dedicated blog on the subject.
Since then, Lisa's talent for styling has seen her win Best Newcomer at the EKBB Influencer Awards and she was shortlisted in the category of Best Newcomer in the Amara IBA's 2017. In the September issue of Marie Claire she was listed in the Top 30 Power List 2017 and given the accolade of being a Marie Claire verified influencer. She was awarded Best Interior Influencer in the Northern Blog Awards 2018 and was a finalist in The Good Web Guide Awards 2020.
All this influence has culminated in the publication of her new book "Resourceful Living" which was published by Kyle Books this April. The book is available from The Little Yorkshire Candle Company; a great match with both brands based around York, passionate about shopping local and with a love of all things interiors.
Lisa Dawson (@_lisa_dawson_) is an award-winning interiors writer and blogger who shares her inspirational advice and weekly blogs on revamped vintage and sustainable interiors on her popular Instagram page and website. She also runs tailored workshops and collaborates regularly with brands such as John Lewis, Loaf Home, Etsy and Santander and writes regularly for Frank magazine.
Joanna Copestick, Publisher of Kyle Books said of the announcement: "We are all spending a lot more time at home right now and this book is a timely reminder of how important it is to create your own comfortable haven without spending a fortune or being a slave to fashion."
Lisa Dawson comments: "From fast fashion to fast interiors, we're entering a new era of being far more careful and considered about what we are putting into our homes. This book will guide you through the ways in which you can build a home that not only makes you smile when you walk through the door, but that is also adaptable to the way we live today, sourcing and repurposing to create a space that is resourceful but that also reflects your own personal style. And most importantly, have a lot of fun doing so along the way."
