The Art of Outdoor Living Garden Book
For anyone who wants to live well in their garden, here is a guide to creating stylish and livable outdoor spaces--for entertaining, playing, and relaxing.
Pools made private by lush plantings, bedrooms open to the back yard, bar seating by the outdoor oven. California native and exterior architect Scott Shrader creates covetable outdoor rooms for clients including Ellen DeGeneres and Patrick Dempsey. In his first book, he shares the grounds of twelve beautiful properties, all designed to live in and enjoyed as extensions of the homes they surround, rich with creature comforts. Shrader shows us how to connect the landscape with interior decor, resulting in an exterior environment that flows naturally, stylishly, and serenely from this core. He also inspires us to think of how these outdoor spaces will be used and plan ways to keep our family and guests fed, warm, and entertained in them. The featured gardens in this garden book range styles from Hollywood Regency to Modern Moroccan. They are reflective essays on topics including Sustainability, Lifestyle, and Pathways. Shrader reflects on how gardens constantly change in small ways, with shifting mood with the light and the weather—transforming dramatically with the cycle of the seasons and the passage of years. These are modern, chic gardens and outdoor entertainment spaces designed to cook, entertain, play, and relax.
