 A must-have for design-obsessed homeowners and gardeners

An outdoor room is an extension of the home—a space that can used for entertaining, relaxing, cooking, playing, swimming, and more. In spaces large and small, outdoor rooms offer a retreat from daily life and a connection to nature. In Inside Outside, Linda O’Keeffe—former creative director of Metropolitan Home—inspires readers to create outdoor living spaces that offer an oasis of comfort and style. O’Keeffe uses the language of interior design to inform her approach to exterior design, focusing on space, structure, movement, mood, and furniture. Inside Outside is filled with private gardens from North America and Europe that are inspiring and illustrative examples. Readers will learn about the importance of structure from a garden in New York’s Hudson Valley, the role of color from a home in Santa Monica, the element of surprise from a backyard in Paris, and much more.
