Home & Garden

Down to Earth by Lauren Liess

Down to Earth features houses that are relaxed, effortless, and celebrate a connection with nature. Designer Lauren Liess draws upon her fondest memories outdoors to inspire her interiors, creating homes that have a simple and natural vibe and are meant to be enjoyed rather than designed to impress. With her use of durable textiles, rustic beams, and great tiles, Liess’s style reminds me of a cross between Justina Blakeney (The New Bohemians) and Joanna Gaines (Fixer Upper), and no doubt fans of either would be delighted with this book. - S.B.

Planting the Natural Garden by Piet Oudolf & Henk Gerritsen

This seminal book started a gardening revolution, the New Perennial movement, when it was first published in 2003. Dutch designer Piet Oudolf (the High Line, Battery Park) champions a naturalistic approach to home and public garden design, emphasizing the use of hardy perennials and grasses that produce landscapes that look natural and organic no matter the season. This revised edition includes beautiful new photography and updated plant lists, making it more valuable and inspirational than ever. - S.B.

A Garden Can Be Anywhere by Lauri Kranz

This gorgeous book is a bounty of creativity and information on planting and maintaining a beautiful and productive edible garden. Lauri Kranz, founder of Edible Gardens LA, has a bit of magic about her, which is clear from the testimonials of her clients (celebrities among them) who give her credit for creating gardens that have changed their lives. Even as an experienced gardener myself, I must say that I fell under her spell while picking up great tips, advice, and inspiration. - S.B.

A Way to Garden by Margaret Roach

Twenty years after it was first published, this classic gardening guide has been updated. I have long loved Roach’s writing (which I first found in Martha Stewart Living) for the way she conveys so much knowledge and expertise in an approachable, encouraging, and personal way. Wise and funny, inspirational and practical, A Way to Garden is the perfect book to sit down and read for pleasure as well as put to good use in the garden. - S.B.

Houses: Extraordinary Living by Phaidon Editors

The range of the homes in this book is simply stunning—from classically inspired dwellings made with traditional materials to modern angled masterpieces perched on cliffs. What is clear from this showcase of houses created since the early 20th century is that technology and innovation have allowed architects to push the boundaries of design and helped make their visions a reality. But what is present, always, is the profound interplay of each house with the environment in which it is built. - S.B.

Outer Order, Inner Calm and A Guide to Organizing and Realizing Your House Goals

If decluttering and getting organized keeps making your to-do list and never getting done, these books could be the inspiration you need to move from dreaming to doing. We know and love Gretchen Rubin for her book with the cheery title The Happiness Project, and she’s hooked us again with this one: Outer Order, Inner Calm. Ahhhh, already the invitation is irresistible. Open this book to any page and you’ll get a bite-size tip about how to start. She’s kind, practical, reasonable, and encouraging.

If you’re a “before and after” picture junkie like I am, The Home Edit by Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin will appeal to your visually pleasing style. This book is broken into three simple sections: How to edit the contents of each area, how to set up the organization, and how to maintain the new systems. Shearer and Teplin assure you that if they can do it, you can do it. Seeing page after page of colorful “after” pictures with everything color coded, containers galore, and fancy folding is almost as good as seeing it happen in your own home. Whether you are aiming for a version of minimalism or just need that final push to clean some closets and make life simpler, these two books will get you started and see you through. - Jenny
