Outside the Not So Big House Creating the Landscape of Home by Julie Moir Messervy, Sarah Susanka

Outside the Not So Big House offers a unified source of design advice about making the indoors and outdoors work together. Through the unique pairing of bestselling author and residential architect Sarah Susanka and landscape designer and award-winning writer Julie Moir Messervy, two highly qualified experts teach us how to think in a new way about designing our outdoor spaces - so they are in keeping with our interior ones. It gives language to design concepts that unify home and landscape. Two major concepts - make building decisions in the context of the land and make landscape decisions that draw the inside toward the outside - inspire homeowners to attune their homes and property to fit the way we live today.


There are gardening books that tell us what to plant and where. And there are architectural design books that tell us how our homes should look. But never the twain seem to meet. At least not until recently, when the two spaces -- home and garden -- wed harmoniously in the new book, Outside the Not So Big House.
