The Way We Live Alfresco combines Stafford Cliff's unerring eye with the remarkable photography of Gilles de Chabaneix to present a marvelous portrayal of the delights of living alfresco. An indispensable reference for getting the best of living outdoors, this book is organized into five specific sections: Outside the Home, Transitional Spaces, Rooms Outside, Bringing the Outside In, and Living Outside.

Each fully illustrated section brings the reader to the heart of what it means to live and dine alfresco-in the open, but closely in touch with the good things of life. From buildings specifically created away from the main home, to the decorative use of natural objects such as stones and leaves inside the home, this book will provide an endless source of inspiration for those seeking to bring comfort and style to their outdoor living.

With 300 full-color photographs that take advantage of every opportunity to make cross-cultural comparisons and connections, The Way We Live Alfresco is sure to dazzle every reader with the beauties of the alfresco lifestyle.
