Through beautiful designs and imagery, La La Lovely invites listeners to find their true identity where there is brokenness, discover the love of God, and design their own special place of beauty.
Author Trina McNeilly has been blogging for nearly a decade. While she spent her days sharing beauty, looking for lovely things, and redecorating her childhood home, her parents' unexpected divorce shattered her ideals of "home".
Through this journey, Trina learned that beauty is not beyond the laundry pile, chipped paint, dirty dishes, broken table, or broken life. It's right in the center of it. Trina found that God IS beauty. And that he invites us to look, discover, uncover, and find because when we find beauty, we find God.
In La La Lovely, Trina shares stories and inspiration from her journey of finding and being found by beauty. You will find deep matters of the heart along with practical pointers on things like decorating your home, finding your style, and creating beautiful spaces. Each chapter offers essays, beautiful photographs, design tips, and practical advice for creating a place of beauty and belonging no matter where you live or what you're going through.

"Trina wears her heart on her sleeve-and for that I'm grateful. Her message of grace overcoming loss is a gift to all of us. The heartfelt honesty on these pages will meet you like an old friend." (Gabe Lyons, president, Q, and author of Good Faith)
"Every inch of this book - the images, the words, and Trina's story of losing and finding - is a call to consider how beauty heals us. Not the slick, glossy pretty of perfect worlds. But the hard-won beauty of everyday loving and living. Maybe most of all, these pages remind us of hope we all need to hear: that even life's endings can become beautiful beginnings in God's hands." (Leeana Tankersley, author of Begin Again)
"Trina's soul is not unlike her innate design sense. It's deep and searching, forever shifting to make room, to carve space, to find a new purpose for it all - the hardship and shiplap, the mundane and the mirror, the strife and the sofa. What a beautiful gift it is to witness such transformations in her living room and living heart." (Erin Loechner, founder of DesignforMankind.com and author of Chasing Slow)
