Book Review: Charlotte Moss’ GARDEN INSPIRATIONS

© Charlotte Moss: Garden Inspirations by Charlotte Moss, Rizzoli, New York, 2015

Several weeks ago I received Charlotte Moss‘ latest tome “Garden Inspirations” from Rizzoli, the publisher. This new book sat waiting for me to dive in – and it’s quite a deep dive. Charlotte is one of my favorite designers and design inspirations. She does so many things just so well. It’s no wonder her gardens are incredible, thoughtful and chock-a-block full of all that makes her so special. As a matter of fact, she’s the only guest we had twice on The Skirted Roundtable. You can listen to her two podcasts here and here.

I make no secret of the fact that I’m not a big fan of gardening. Of course, I loove a beautiful garden – whether it be formal or haphazard. My mom was a wonderful gardener. She would have loved this book – though it would have reminded her of how hard it became for her to care for her beautiful gardens on Cape Cod. Sadly, I did not inherit this particular gene from her.  As a matter of fact, I didn’t even inherit her gardening tools. When I cleaned out her house last year, I totally forgot to take all the good tools – and there were many. Oy. But I digress…

Lots of detail shots – all shot by Ms. Moss herself. Such great inspiration!


Her amazing potting room. I’d love to have a potting shed. Maybe if I had a place like this, I’d do more gardening… or not. A girl can dream!


And there’s lots of amazing floral design inspiration…

“Garden Inspirations” is a great book for gardeners and dreamers alike!  You can purchase a signed copy from Charlotte’s website here.
