Overview

The garden house is a restorative sanctuary that combines the best of indoor comforts with the sunlight and greenery of the outdoors. Lushly photographed, Garden House is an inspirational guide to re-envisioning the home with a gardener's eye.

It includes an inspiring text and page after wonderful page of innovative touches suitable for any house or apartment. Organized by home activity, such as bathing, working, relaxing, dining, sleeping, and dreaming, Garden House is brimming with original and easily adaptable ideas that will enhance the way you experience home. When did we decide being inside means shutting out the pleasures of nature? It's high time to blend gentle breezes with an air of sophistication.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Home is a natural sanctuary of ease and comfort. The garden soothes the mind and body, invigorating the sense and restoring peace and well-being. Gardenhouse is about blending the two - inviting the outdoors in and creating rooms that bring us closer to the joys of nature.

From the simplest gestures to more elaborate projects, this book offers inspirational ideas for revisioning the home with a gardener's eye. A selection of aromatic herbs placed beside the bathtub will perfume morning showers. Potted plants and a bistro table by a window evoke a sunny outdoor cafe. A hammock hung in a quiet corner makes an ideal spot to nap. Each room in the garden house offers a bright, restorative space that is as simply beautiful as it is airy and refreshing. Gardenhouseis filled with unique and inspiring ways to enhance the experience of home. -Craftworks
