A collection of decorating ideas that recognize nature's design is organized according to the five senses and offers advice on integrating natural elements into preexisting interiors

Blackwell North Amer
A Manhattan townhouse in which barn walls were reassembled to satisfy the resident's rustic yearnings ... an impeccably appointed country house where moss - quite literally - grows between the floorboards ... a New England cottage in which the furniture sprouts twigs, bark, and even pine cones.... All are examples of homes designed with nature in mind. Gone is the cold steel of postmodernism, the overdone period interior, the inflexible decorating scheme. Here instead is a celebration of interiors suffused with life and growth, with the elements and the seasons.
Outside Inside is the first compendium of decorating ideas to recognize nature's designs as valid models for domestic decor. Organized according to the five senses, it combines spectacular photography with detailed advice on how to integrate natural elements into preexisting interiors. Arrangements of winter branches delight the eye; tatami mats underfoot pamper the sense of touch; a fountain fills a city apartment with the sound of running water; imaginative table settings and recipes tantalize the taste buds.
For anyone who pines for the simple, barefoot delights of a summer childhood, wishes that the spirit of a weekend retreat could carry over into every day of the week, or simply requires relief from the fast pace of contemporary living, Outside Inside is an inspired yet practical guide to making changes for the better.
