The garden house is a restorative sanctuary that combines the best of indoor comforts with the sunlight and greenery of the outdoors. Lushly photographed, Garden House is an inspirational guide to re-envisioning the home with a gardener's eye. From the simplest of concepts (placing potted aromatic herbs beside the bathtub to perfume a morning shower) to more elaborate ideas (creating an indoor hammock haven for napping in sun-dappled style), Garden House offers ingenious ways to make a place for the spirit of nature inside. It includes an inspiring text and page after wonderful page of innovative touches suitable for any house or apartment. Organized by home activity, such as bathing, working, relaxing, dining, sleeping, and dreaming, Garden House is brimming with original and easily adaptable ideas that will enhance the way you experience home. When did we decide being inside means shutting out the pleasures of nature? It's high time to blend gentle breezes with an air of sophistication.

In essence, creating a "garden house" means pulling together the best and most comfortable aspects of indoor comforts and combining them with the natural delights of the garden, bringing the outdoors in to create a restorative, uplifting, and comfortable home. In this lushly illustrated idea book, Bonnie Trust Dahan offers a wealth of innovative ideas, designs, and delights: aromatic herbs near the bath, an indoor hammock, a stunning birch log with branches as a coat rack, an outdoor swing on an indoor porch, a rustic potting bench as a kitchen enhancement. Room by room, she takes the reader through a multitude of inventive fantasies that can be realized and created by a person living in a hilltop mansion in the country or a walk-up studio apartment in the heart of a bustling, crowded urban center. Using the many examples shown and described, the reader can customize his or her own dream garden house, and will be inspired to do so by this lovely book. --Mark A. HettsAbout the Author:
