Small Space Style by Whitney Leigh Morris

Whitney Morris is a firm believer that one doesn’t need to live large to live beautifully. She practices what she preaches in the tiny 362-foot home she shares with her husband, son, and two dogs in Venice Beach. On The Tiny Canal Cottage blog and in this book, Morris shares her tips for living well in a small space. Refreshingly, she does not think that the answer lies entirely in clever storage solutions, but rather in not having more stuff than you need. She also has smart advice about sticking to a color palette (even with dog toys!) so that when things are strewn about, they don’t look out of place. Small Space Style will help you create a home you’ll love, no matter the size. - S.B.

Plant Style by Alana Langan & Jacqui Vidal

Close your eyes and visualize a lush, vibrant, greener-than-green jungle. Now get rid of the bugs and giant cats who want to eat you, lose the muggy, humid air, and add some cute pots and knotted plant hangers (see my review of Modern Macramé). Now open your eyes and see that you’re holding a copy of Plant Style, which, through its beautiful pictures, plant profiles, and care charts (including information on the water and light needs of the various plants) shows you how to curate and care for this jungle. - Megan

The Garden in Every Sense and Season by Tovah Martin

So much of gardening is focused on the long list of chores—the weeding, the planting, and the pruning. But what about the joy a garden can provide? In The Garden in Every Sense and Season, Tovah Martin explores the sensory delights of her own garden and discovers the pleasures that can be found in focusing on sight, smell, sound, touch, and taste. I have read Martin’s lovely writing for many years and know of no other writer who is as passionate about the garden. - S.B.

Do Grow: Start with 10 Simple Vegetables by Alice Holden

I’m a big fan of this little book. Equal parts information and inspiration, it gives the beginning vegetable gardener the jump-start they need without becoming overwhelmed. Do Grow is filled with simple-to-follow instructions on planting and harvesting 10 vegetables, and it includes recipes. The photographs and illustrations are as great as the advice, which follows sustainable and organic gardening principles. If you’ve always wanted to grow your own vegetables but haven’t known how to start, this book is just the tool you need. - S.B.

Design by Nature by Erica Tanov

Nature is the inspiration for the design ideas in this gorgeous new book. Bay Area designer Erica Tanov takes the colors, textures, and patterns of the natural world—from ferns to redwood forests—and translates them into beautiful interior spaces. Through side-by-side photos, readers see how natural elements like lacy leaves and rough bark inspire Tanov’s fabrics, textures, and artwork. Her relaxed, inviting spaces are timeless and poetic. - S.B.

Martha's Flowers by Martha Stewart with Kevin Sharkey

One of the first books that had a big impact on me as a gardener was Martha Stewart’s Gardening: Month by Month, which I loved because Stewart’s aesthetics (alas, not her resources!) were so similar to mine. More than 25 years later, I still find inspiration in her books, including her latest, Martha’s Flowers. With its advice and lessons on growing and cutting blooms as well as its gorgeous photos of lush arrangements, this sumptuous volume takes readers through the seasons, bloom by beautiful bloom. - S.B.
