Charlotte Moss: Garden Inspirations

Celebrated interior designer and renowned tastemaker Charlotte Moss turns her eye to the garden as a resource for interiors, entertaining, and good living. Charlotte Moss’s greatest muse is the garden, and this book shows the myriad ways the garden provides inspiration every day—indoors and outdoors. Touring readers through her own gardens, Moss offers insights on how to bring the garden into home life—including ideas for elegant flower arrangements from the garden and the table settings and menus they inspire, garden seating for entertaining and relaxing, interior color schemes drawn from nature, and much more. Moss also shares with readers key garden lessons that she has culled from her time spent exploring magnificent gardens around the world, including French and Italian, English and Russian, private and public, and also the gardens of great women, past and present. An extensive resource guide of notable gardens to visit is also included. With this verdant volume, Moss shows us—implores us—that "to behold our own patch of beauty and pleasure" (in Edith Wharton’s words) is not beyond our reach.
