Stylist, author and journalist Jane Cumberbatch has pioneered a simple and natural approach to interior decoration, cooking and styling. A former decorating editor of House & Garden magazine, Jane has worked on leading publications including Elle Decoration. Her best-selling books include Pure Style, Pure Style Outside, Pure Style Living, Home Sweet Home, and Decorating Easy.
Following her theme of the Pure Style, Jane Cumberbatch presents a book of living, eating and gardening simply and stylishly. Arranged by season, the book is a great pleasure to read. Jane’s personal reflections and her ideas on living extend the cooking theme. To take one example, the Rose; there are excellent recommendations of what to grow and how to look after your plants, how to use flowers in cooking through to making pot-pourri and pressed flowers. It’s a very well-rounded look at the place of food in life, how you can cook well but simply, how to make your house into a home.
