Nature meets home decor in Shane Powers’ Bring the Outdoors In: Garden Projects for Decorating and Styling Your Home.
In the book, stylist and designer Powers shares 22 projects for bringing nature into the home using live or dried plant materials. Among them are a flowering branch wall sconce, prints made from mushroom caps and a geometric sculpture made from foam cubes covered with dried blooms.
Some of the projects involve making unusual containers or arrangements, such as an indoor water garden and a planter covered with sea-glass crystals.
Bring the Outdoors In is published by Chronicle Books and sells for $24.95 in hardcover.
