Creating Outdoor Rooms
Today's garden lifestyle has its roots in one of the nation's oldest cities, Charleston, SC: a city where the houses blend with their piazzas and gardens, creating an enviable outdoor lifestyle. Creating Outdoor Rooms by Leeda Marting, the founder and president of Charleston Gardens®, translates the Charleston outdoor tradition into a style that anyone can use to enhance a home. Beautifully illlustrated with over 150 photographs by Terry Richardson, this book provides ideas and practical advice for creating outdoor living areas as inviting and comfortable as those inside the home. Chapters are devoted to selecting furniture, choosing accessories, creating visual impact with fountains and other features, and bringing the outdoor room alive through humor, sounds and entertaining.
