Jane Cumberbatch has stepped outdoors with her latest title, Pure Style Outside, which follows the same enticing format as her best-selling Pure Style. This is not a gardening book packed with daunting Latin names, impossible planting schemes, trendy plant varieties and grand ideas for garden furniture, says Cumberbatch. Rather it's about making the best of your outside space, whether it's a balcony, a vegetable patch or a back yard. Cumberbatch's down-to-earth approach to decoration is based on the timeless appeal of natural materials and objects that are functional as well as aesthetically pleasing. Here she offers resourceful solutions for making outside areas as colourful, textural, sensual, and pleasing to be in as any room in the home. This is a book to delve into again and again for inspiration. (Distributed by Reed Consumer Books.)page breakpage break
