houses - porch

We don’t know about you, but we want to start this week feeling inspired. Few things give us more inspiration than a great cup of coffee, time spent in nature–and a fabulous coffee table book. 


One of our current favorites is Outside In: Gardens and Houses of Tichenor and Thorp.


If your weather is getting a little too cold or a tad too rainy to get outside as much as you’d like, this is the book for you.

On this rainy day in NC, we’ve been taking solace in these gorgeous gardens

houses- porch

Each one is distinctive and totally unique. 

houses- pool

Even during the coldest winter months, this is a book that can transport us to somewhere sunny and warm!

houses- living room

The only thing more stunning than the exteriors?

houses - dining room

Why, the interiors, of course. 

houses- bathroom

Unique arrangements, fabulous accessories, and, my oh my, the light fixtures

houses - bedroom

Needless to say, you’ll be flipping furiously from the first page to the last–and then slowing down to savor every page.
