In her latest book, Garden Style, Selina Lake reveals how to make the most of any outdoor space, no matter what size or shape.
Selina begins by describing her sources of inspiration - famous gardens, nurseries and garden centres, plant catalogues and botanical prints. Armed with ideas, she moves on to Chapter Two, Decorating your Garden, which is packed with suggestions for container gardening and introducing decorative features. In the next chapter, Bringing the Outside In, she harvests flowers and foliage from the garden to provide seasonal adornment for her home. Chapter Four, Garden Rooms, Greenhouses and Sheds, taps into the current trend for garden buildings that allow you to make the most of your outdoor space. Next, in Relaxing Outdoors, Selina explains how to transform your garden into a stylish space for entertaining, with ideas on furniture, lighting and more. Finally, in Eating Outdoors, Selina offers advice on creating an inviting outdoor room for eating alfresco. The book is peppered with styling ideas and simple projects. There are also tips on choosing easy-to-grow garden plants and even growing your own produce.
Perfect for anyone who wants to make the most of their own little patch of green, Garden Style will also appeal to those who might have neglected their outdoor space and need help to see the potential in their plot. Garden Style will allow readers to transform even the smallest scrap of outdoor space into a lush green retreat.
