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

Design Mom: How to Live with Kids by Gabrielle Blair

Gabrielle Blair, author of the hugely-popular blog, Design Mom, is definitely my design twin. I love her aesthetic: bright, colorful, stylish-yet-comfortable, organized, and modern. In her first book, she shares room-by-room advice and solutions for decluttering a home and making it beautiful. Make no mistake: she knows the realities of life with kids (she has six!) and she’s not striving for perfection. But she also knows that a well-designed space can contribute happiness and sanity to life at home. “A happy marriage of interior design book and parenting guide.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

Filled with evocative images of homes around the globe, Rethink illustrates how design game-changers are weaving age-old resourcefulness with new technology, creativity with sustainability to construct a more meaningful existence. We can think small (bringing more nature inside) or big (installing moving walls for multifunctional spaces), but the point is to rethink our design choices today for a more sustainable tomorrow.
