Charlotte Moss: Garden Inspirations

Celebrated interior designer and renowned tastemaker Charlotte Moss turns her eye to the garden as a resource for interiors, entertaining, and good living. Charlotte Moss’s greatest muse is the garden, and this book shows the myriad ways the garden provides inspiration every day—indoors and outdoors. Touring readers through her own gardens, Moss offers insights on how to bring the garden into home life—including ideas for elegant flower arrangements from the garden and the table settings and menus they inspire, garden seating for entertaining and relaxing, interior color schemes drawn from nature, and much more. Moss also shares with readers key garden lessons that she has culled from her time spent exploring magnificent gardens around the world, including French and Italian, English and Russian, private and public, and also the gardens of great women, past and present. An extensive resource guide of notable gardens to visit is also included. With this verdant volume, Moss shows us—implores us—that "to behold our own patch of beauty and pleasure" (in Edith Wharton’s words) is not beyond our reach.

This entire book is absolutely beautiful from beginning to end!!! Charlotte Moss and Rizzoli...a perfect combination! Stunning photographs on large thick pages filled with gardens, flowers and tablescapes. I love that fact that at the end of the book, Charlotte included a large chapter called "Verdant Voices" with vignettes on Edith Wharton (The Writer), Bunny Mellon (The Connoisseur), Iris Cutting Origo (The Pioneer), Beatrix Potter (The Imaginary Gardner), Colette (The Sensualist), Nancy Lancaster (The Sybarite), Empress Josephine (The Patron), Constance Spry (The Trailblazer), Lady Bird Johnson (The Advocate) and Sackville West (The Columnist)...and the last large chapter of the book "The Informing Spirit" is dedicated to the gorgeous gardens that Charlotte Moss has visited and photographed...English Gardens, French Gardens, Italian Gardens, Russian Gardens and American Gardens.

For long-time fans of Charlotte Moss or first-time readers of her books, Garden Inspirations will blow you away! It has gorgeous photos of spectacular gardens, from shrubs to blooms, and everything that is garden-related! Charlotte's personal garden inspirations, a section on famous women gardeners, some knock-out table settings, and commentary on creating and enjoying gardens fills this book. Despite having a garden that is tiny by comparison, humbler vases, and far simpler table settings, this book fires my enthusiasm and inspires me to capture every moment of joy in everything connected to the garden. Thank you Charlotte Moss!

Absolute perfection. A MUST for any true lover of gardens, gardenalia and outdoor entertaining, with a special section on women who have impacted gardening over the past two centuries. A beautiful book from cover to cover, this is Charlotte Moss at her very best. Stunning flowers and garden antiques page after page. When looking for inspiration, I will reference this treasure for years to come.

Another lovely book for Charlotte Moss. The pictures were so beautiful, it made one want to start making over one's garden. Any garden lover would enjoy having this book as a gift, truly. I look forward to other books by her. It gives one many ideas and color thoughts for inspiration. Many thanks for the work that was put into this fine book. I enjoyed every page and hope others will, too.

I just adore Charlottes latest book perhaps because I share the exact same taste in furniture, gardens, collectables....everything really. Just wish I didn't have to garden in extreme heat in our Australian summers. Her garden is exquisite, her arrangements of everything so tasteful and beautiful. I've browsed her books for years and always go back to them for inspiration and affirmation! She is a very lucky lady to have such a dedicated team of helpers....we all wish!

Beautiful book with beautiful images. I bought for a Mother's Day gift and want one for me now!

My wife really enjoyed (and continues to enjoy) this book. She has found excellent ideas for her efforts around our home. The text is enjoyable and the illustrations lush.

The book was beautful! Shipment was fast.
