With more and more of us spending most of our time at home, outdoor spaces have become our retreat - somewhere to breathe again, heighten our senses and escape the onslaught of noise, clutter and technology. This book offers ideas and inspiration for making the most of any outdoor space we might have - whether it is a garden, a patio or a balcony, or even just a window box - and for bringing touches of nature indoors for mindful enjoyment. Bestselling author Jane Cumberbatch' s ' Pure Style' philosophy is all about making the most of what' s around you and finding beauty in the simple and every day as an achievable alternative to the stressful demands of consumer society. In this book, which was put together over the course of 2020, she draws on her the inspiration of her own home and garden to supply ideas and inspiration for life-affirming colour, scent and texture, and to show how even the most unpromising outdoor space can be a source of sensuous renewal. Viewing the garden as an extension of the home, and with ideas for all seasons, this beautiful and inspiring book is illustrated with glorious photographs and enchanting paintings by the author herself. A book for dipping into or enjoying as one long read, or both.
