We’re thrilled to announce our new book, Gardenista: The Definitive Guide to Outdoor Spaces, a companion volume to Remodelista: A Manual for the Considered Home. For the past two years, Gardenista editor in chief Michelle Slatalla has been working behind the scenes, gathering Gardenista’s best design ideas—and visiting dozens of our friends’ gardens from London to LA with our talented photographer, Brooklyn-based Matthew Williams, who captured every image in the book.
Here’s what Rita Konig, the UK designer and contributing editor to the New York Time’s T Magazine, says about the book (and we hope you’ll like it as much): “This is a book of all the people whose taste I most covet and their gardens rather than a volume of gardens designed by garden designers. It makes me feel, at least, that I too can achieve some of this loveliness in my own backyard. The thing that I love about it is that I feel it is speaking directly to me rather than a gardeners’ language—already I want to rush home and start digging.”
Here’s a first look (and N.B.: You can order a signed copy from Terrain if you act now).
