Publishers Weekly Review

This tie-in volume to retailer Anthropologie's "outdoor lifestyle brand," also called Terrain, offers a way to express the beauty of nature through pleasing interior design in one's home. The text offers step-by-step instructions for home design projects-such as table-top arrangements and entrance-way staging-that bridge the divide between living indoors and celebrating the aesthetics of the out-of-doors. Ordered by the seasons of the year and their associated horticultural offerings, this well-appointed resource, with more than 450 stunning color photographs, makes for an inviting adventure both in the garden and in the living room. The Harvest Meadow Table, for example, functions as a basic centerpiece for autumn dining by showcasing (among other plants) goldenrod, pokeweed, strawflower, and verbena. The Woodland Doorstep transforms an otherwise spare winter outer doorway into a wonderland of evergreens, garlands, berried wreaths, and Christmas lights. By exploring the creative use of common elements of nature (twigs, berries, bark, grass), in combination with stylish design, these approachable projects empower anyone with garden snips and a willingness to learn innumerable ways of elevating one's living space while celebrating nature.
