Greg Lehmkuhl, Editor
hardcover, 368 pages
The ultimate resource for the intersection of nature and design
Founded in a historic nursery in southeast Pennsylvania, Terrain is a nationally renowned garden, home, and lifestyle brand with an entirely fresh approach to living with nature. It’s an approach that bridges the gap between home and garden, the indoors and the outdoors. An approach that embraces decorating with plants and inviting the garden into every living space.
Terrain, the book, not only captures the brand’s unique and lushly appealing sensibility in over 450 beautiful photographs but also shows, in project after project, tip after tip, how to live with nature at home. Here are ideas for flower arranging beyond the expected bouquet, using branches and wild blooms, seed heads and bulbs. Ten colorful container gardens inspired by painterly palettes. Dozens of ideas for making wreaths out of vines, dried stems, evergreens, and fresh leaves and fern fronds (which you learn to preserve in glycerin). Here are secrets for forcing branches to bloom in the middle of winter. Decorating with heirloom pumpkins, including turning them into tabletop planters. Simple touches—like massing high-summer hydrangeas into weathered baskets and scattering them around the patio—and more involved projects, including taking inspiration from Scandinavia and Britain to create a truly natural Christmas.
With inspiration for every season, Terrain blurs the indoors and out to bring the subtle and surprising joys of nature into our lives every day.

150 New Recipes for Fresh, Healthy Dishes
Alain Ducasse & Paule Neyrat
Contribution by Christophe Saintagne
Written by Alain Ducasse and Paule Neyrat, for anyone interested in a healthier, lighter alternative to traditional French cuisine, this collection of simple, easy French recipes focuses on organic, locally sourced, and sustainable ingredients.
Alain Ducasse’s Nature series of cookbooks makes eating healthfully on a daily basis both simple and pleasurable. Ducasse dispels the idea that French food is defined by complicated techniques, time-consuming recipes, and loads of butter and cream. Along with nutritionist Paule Neyrat and chef Christophe Saintagne, he shows how going back to basics means rediscovering the pleasures of sustainable, seasonal French food with maximum nutrition and flavor.
The recipes are first and foremost delicious, but they are also healthy and respectful of natural resources and stress sustainable practices—which is why animal protein is de-emphasized (as well as salt and sugar, too) in favor of more vegetables, more legumes, and more grains, leaving meat and fish to be used sparingly—if at all, as many of the recipes are vegetarian—for flavor.
Simple Nature takes a more holistic approach to mealtime and includes tips and ideas for reusing leftovers and reducing waste.
