Gardens of Style: Private Hideaways of the Design World
From the lush foliage of the Dominican Republic to the graceful flowerbeds of America's East Coast, the charming roses and clipped boxwood of England's country manors, and the patterned parterres of France's enchanting Provence region--Gardens of Style illustrates the symbiotic relationship between horticulture and haute couture and between nature's beautiful forms and those found in interior design. For instance, the garden of former Herm s designer Nicole de V sian is a sublime weave of patterns and textures, while the garden of Christian Dior features many of the roses that inspired his glamorous gowns. The result is an alluring compendium of designers' gardens to delight and inspire readers in turn.
