Home by Ellen DeGeneres

Sharing her passion for interior design while inviting us into her home, award winning actress, comedian and bestselling author Ellen DeGeneres reveals some of her most treasured interior spaces. Ellen’s style, modern with an eye to earthy substance, has inspired in me an appreciation for soft transitional spaces that bring the outside world in. Home beautifully demonstrates Ellen’s quality use of texture and light to emphasize her interest in creating rooms with both balance and charm.  —Ashley

Rescuing Eden by Caroline Seebohm

From simple 18th- and early 19th-century gardens to the lavish estates of the Gilded Age, the gardens started by 1930s inmates at Alcatraz in San Francisco Bay to the centuries-old camellias at Middleton Place near Charleston, South Carolina—Rescuing Eden celebrates the history of garden design in the United States, with 28 examples that have been saved by ardent conservationists and generous private owners, and opened to the public. This book is as beautiful as it is inspirational.

Lovable Livable Home by Sherry Petersik & John Petersik

In the three years since Sherry and John Petersik wrote their bestselling book Young House Love, they have bought a new house and had a new baby, and they have seen their design perspective evolve right along with their family. In their latest book, they’ve set out to prove that just because you have kids or pets, doesn’t mean you’re sentenced to floors overrun with toys or furniture covered in plastic. Through a gallery of inspiring spaces (including the authors’), Lovable Livable Home shows how beautiful homes can be functional, too.

Planting in a Post-Wild World by Thomas Rainer & Claudia West

Planting in a Post-Wild World inspires gardeners to design landscapes that function like naturally occurring plant communities, and shows us how to maintain them, as well. Thomas Rainer and Claudia West, two leading voices in ecological landscape design, reveal how plants fit together in nature and how to use this knowledge to create landscapes at home that are resilient, appealing, and diverse. “The authors make the case for breaking with horticultural tradition to create sustainable landscapes that are no less beautiful.” —Architectural Digest
