Publisher Comments:

Nothing enlivens a room like a touch of nature. Taking the terrarium trend to the next level, this stunning guide will inspire crafters, garden lovers, and décor fans to turn flowers, leaves, and branches into striking, organic décor. Acclaimed designer and stylist Shane Powers presents 20 simple yet arresting projects for bringing natural tranquility to any space. Suited for garden enthusiasts and black thumbs alike, the projects use a range of live and dried plant materials to create colorful dried floral garlands, eye-catching willow wreaths, intriguing water gardens, and timeless succulent landscapes. With step-by-step instructions, styling and container ideas, helpful resources, and gorgeous photography, Bring the Outdoors In offers countless ways to welcome the natural world into any space.

Review:

"Probably everyone knows someone who's a natural arranger. The question is whether that flair can be taught — 'you can achieve a great look even if you aren't a green thumb!' the book promises — by slavishly following instructions, even those in a profusely illustrated book. Powers, a stylist and former editor at Martha Stewart Living, clearly has a flair for arranging stunning combinations of containers and live, dried, or pressed plants. Undoubtedly, his ideas are inspirational, perhaps especially so to those who are already talented with lichens and moss. Among the 22 beautiful combinations are a colorful floral garland, a sophisticated braided willow wreath, and a revival of flower pockets, small holders made of fabric and designed to hang from doorknobs. Detailed care needs, which are demanding in some cases while low- to no-maintenance in others, complete the descriptions. An appendix lists sources. If you already have a vision, you're good. If you aren't an artiste, not so much. (Feb.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

Unlike other packaging titles, which simply provide templates to copy, this book enables designers of all packaging types to create 3-D packaging forms that are specific to their needs rather than based on an existing design. Structural Packaging gives the reader an understanding of the underlying principles of packaging construction and the technical knowledge and confidence to develop a greater number of their own unusual and innovative designs.
