Charlotte Moss: Garden Inspirations
Celebrated interior designer and renowned tastemaker Charlotte Moss presents a rich look on the joie de vivre of gardens. This fresh volume
explores the garden as a room-or a series of rooms. A veritable gardening resource, Moss personally tours readers through her own gardens in East Hampton (a labor of love since 1989) and New York City, as she shares the sources and origins of her inspirations from gardens of great women, past and present to historical gardens, domestic and foreign, that all gardeners will appreciate. Moss includes an extensive resource guide to notable gardens to visit.
She also shares an array of practical tips and savvy advice on how the garden fits into your interior decorating and good living-from elegant flower arrangements from the garden and the table settings they inspire (the color scheme is based on the flowers she has cut); to artfully arranged but practical garden seating for entertaining, relaxing, eating, and drinking, and hammocks and nooks for relaxing; to ideas on trimming and cutting, and the endless possibilities of garden ornaments, and much more. Moss is a true host, and her philosophy of decorating, indoors and outdoors, is one rooted in hospitality-creating welcoming spaces and bringing people together.
