Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

The team behind the best-selling Garden House has created another inviting guide to bringing the outdoors in. Living with the Seasons features countless ways to bring the signs of the season into every home by drawing on the colors of nature and engaging the senses. In spring, for example, a bedroom gets a makeover from lime green linens and a display of fresh-cut violet hyacinths. In autumn, a home office is reinvented with vibrant fall squash displayed in glass cylinders like modern art. Here are scores of ideas for changing the look of a room with just a few easy and inexpensive touches. Throughout, Shaun Sullivan's radiant photographs capture the rich textures and colors of organic materials, while Bonnie Trust Dahan's inspirational and instructive text makes decorating with seasonal flowers, plants, and fabrics a natural instinct. Whether studio apartment or hilltop mansion, any home will find rejuvenating style with a little help from Mother Nature and the creative ideas found here.

Library Journal Review

Each season brings a different look and feel to the outdoors, but Dahan (Garden House; Garden Home City) shows how a home's interior can be modified to reflect the seasons on the inside, too. She hopes to inspire readers to "enliven [their] surroundings while living more in harmony with the cycle of nature." The seasonally appropriate use of colors, plants, and flowers is demonstrated in color photographs, showing how a home can be decorated-for spring with bright-colored slipcovers, well-lit interiors, and tulips and peonies or for winter with pale colors, a roaring fire, candles, and straw. Recommended for large interior design collections. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
