What I'm Reading: Veranda: The Art of Outdoor Living

Posted by

I'm excited to share Lisa Newsom's Veranda: The Art of Outdoor Living (Hearst, $39) with you today. As you might have already noticed from past book reviews, I like having the chance to get a peek inside luxurious, impeccably decorated homes. This book is slightly different, in that it gives us a look at the outsides of homes. Newsom's collection of gardens, courtyards, pools and landscapes in many different decor styles is fantastic. Get inspired by my favorites below!
