Private paradises nestled in the backyards of homes. Rooftops that act as community gardens. Edible patches of beauty hidden within city blocks. Evergreen shows the verdant aesthetic statement that allows city dwellers to bring nature back into the every day and quenches urban gardening desires. Living with plants is mutually beneficial; beyond the exchange of carbon dioxide and oxygen, leaves, flowers, and stems bring a warm and individual charisma to any space. Throughout this engaging collection of projects, urban gardening is complimented by a softer side: balconies that add an extra relaxing touch to a morning cup of coffee, flowers that provide calming fragrances throughout the home, or romantic blooms that feed the soul rather than fill a plate. Evergreen also inspires those who already live in the midst of lush horticultural and sustainable oases. Straightforward plans and examples illustrate how to transform unused spaces, both indoors and out, into flourishing and functional patches. Sketched floorplans visually detail a myriad of projects including which plants thrive in dark living room corners or which foliage enjoys the damp environment of a bathroom. The profiles of both professional and hobbyist plant lovers provide an engaging guide to productively getting one’s hands dirty; herb gardens on fire escapes, greenhouses that double as living spaces, and community gardens atop roofs all awaken growing curiosities. From cactus farmers and florists to shop owners and activists, let Evergreen’s cast of characters guide you in making and maintaining a green utopia and in quenching gardening longings.

Everything you need to know about the modern rustic look From cottages to chateaus, inside the world’s most inspiring rural homes Step-by-step guides to create your dream interior Considered, calm, and irresistible—modern rustic style is all about simple, casual living. Be it a log cabin, a Moroccan villa, or a chalet perched on a mountainside, the element that unites these rural escapes is a passion for craftsmanship and a pared-down quality that allows the beauty of natural materials to shine through. The interiors are stripped-back and the objects within it are useful and timeless—each with a story to tell. The latest addition to the new Modern Living series, New Country, penned by design writer Claire Bingham, explores some of the most beautiful homes in the countryside and shows how to get the look yourself. It’s also a book full of practical tips—from how to mix heirloom and contemporary pieces with confidence, to putting together a relaxed scheme where the driving force is comfort.

Learn to mix patterns and collectibles with confidence Step inside inspiring, eclectic, and maximalist homes Decorating tips, tricks, and ideas to try from style maverick   A far cry from the calm simplicity of Scandinavian interiors or bare-room minimalism, now there is a bold alternative: the motto is “more is more” and ‘individuality’ the key word. From highly-decorated interiors that are jam-packed with fabulous objects, to cool and cultivated apartments that are wonderfully unkempt, design writer Claire Bingham takes a tour around the world’s most exciting, free-spirited abodes where the interiors dazzle and half-measures aren’t allowed. Filled with prints, patterns, and curios, these homes will undoubtedly inspire readers to unleash their creativity. Celebrating the ornate, wild, and whimsical, this beautifully-illustrated book includes loads of great decorating advice and ideas to steal. In contrast to the life-changing magic of tidying, for these creative home owners messy is good. Bye, bye minimal. Say hello to houses that are full of life.

Adding. Extending. Transforming. Upgrade breathes new life into forgotten architecture. Past structures are consciously preserved and revamped, expanded and altered, to create something exciting and enticing. Upgrade explores architectural and design concepts that seek to enhance and repurpose our surroundings from slight changes to complete renovations. Extensions upon a rooftop. Factories turned into relaxing retreats. Wood additions contrasting with antique brick exteriors. Through engaging anecdotes and inspiriting images, Upgrade provides vibrant exemplars and enthusiasm for revamping existing spaces. Repurposing the unused: be it an empty chapel that becomes an inviting writer s nook or a rotten barn converted into a cozy living space for a small family. The projects illustrate the possibility of adding a touch of the new to the old: farmhouses adorned with modern glass additions or churches whose traditional lines now frame an office. What are ruins to some become another's architectural playground

The raw charm of rustic farmhouses, the inviting ease of country homes: New Romance presents romantic interiors inspired by modernity. Soft palettes, natural materials, and corresponding accessories create an atmosphere that produces both warmth and comfort. From country house to chalet, New Romance highlights the charm and grace of interiors. Soft classic tones and unfinished woods provide the look and feel of dreamy antiquity. Mudrooms and breezeways bring the bright airiness of rustic outdoor spaces within the walls of beautiful homes and residences. The classic lines and traditional textures nestled within a palette of pale grays and rose tones add to the visual storyline: soft and sophisticated, nostalgic and contemporary.

The loft, which is essentially an urban construction, is an ideal way of converting one’s own home to a unique space that reflects and extends the personality of those who dwell there. The intention of this book is to demonstrate that not only is it possible, but also that often these compact solutions can stand on their own in comparison with the enormous lofts of London or Manhattan. And even though most of them are small, all of them demonstrate how it is possible to convert what could be a small apartment into a spacious loft. This is achieved by using great care in the design.
