A good eye and well-trained senses are essential requirements for an aesthetic garden design. Peter Berg’s philosophy takes a very special approach: he expects his gardens to be both sustainable and natural – which the use of natural stone in particular is intended to ensure. They should be reduced to just a few materials, and along with the colour scheme, radiate a pleasant inner calmness. Each garden should also meet the individual needs of its owners. His concept has resulted in gardens that are unique and whose fascination lies in the clarity of their design. This splendid volume presents the most beautiful among them for the first time. It will serve as a source of inspiration for both the professional garden designer as well as the ambitious and passionate private gardener.

How do you set up a children's room that is fun, colorful, or perhaps more traditional? One that leaves enough room for playing and daydreaming and makes children's heart beat faster? A child's room must be fun both for its smaller inhabitants and for the parents, who usually arrange them: it's here that budding young minds first begin to explore the world. These rooms have plenty to do, acting as a playroom, a place to sleep, a reading nook, and a space for young minds to concentrate and watch creativity unfold. Years can be spent playing and learning in a child's room, a sibling might move in, and exchanging laughter is a certainty. Setting up a children's room can be a wonderful challenge, and can bring the greatest joy to parents. Little Big Rooms offers inspiration for mothers and fathers, pairing priceless tips for new rooms or spaces in need of an update with furniture and accessory recommendations sure to please both young children and their discerning parents.
