Colorful and practical, an edible garden can radically transform an outdoor space and is an affordable, sustainable source of fresh fruit, vegetables, and herbs. In this hands-on guidebook, internationally renowned home and garden design expert Jamie Durie reveals how to plant, arrange, and maintain an edible garden that works in all climates and in spaces of all shapes and sizes.
A glorious book of inspiration featuring one hundred of Jamie Durie's stunning garden designs from home and abroad. From the luxurious to the accessible, the sustainable and the edible, Jamie Durie's innovative garden designs have changed the way we look at gardens. A pioneer of the Outdoor Room concept, Durie's designs are as much about the humans who live in them as they are about the concepts. This philosophy-communicated through his award-winning designs, television shows, books, magazine and endless editorials across the globe-has inspired a whole new generation to create a more meaningful connection to their outdoor spaces. Jamie Durie's 100 GARDENS features over 50 stunning new garden designs, as well as a hand picked selection of his most powerful designs, that together highlight Durie's most significant and inspiring work to date.
"International award-winning designer and TV host Jamie Durie has long been passionate about creating outdoor rooms – luxurious living spaces where we can cook, eat, bathe and sleep outdoors – but he is equally driven to create interiors that bring the outdoors inside. Over the last decade his work has evolved from landscape design into a very successful furniture and interior design practice. At the heart of his design philosophy is his belief that the closer we live to nature, the happier we feel. Living Design explores ‘Transterior’ homes where the interior and exterior of a home merge. In this book Jamie, along with Durie Design’s creative director Nadine Bush, showcases exceptional houses from around the world, including Jamie's own, and demonstrates innovative ways to integrate nature into the home with plants, colours, textures, materials and architecture. Learn how to create a home that is a living sanctuary and make the natural world part of your everyday life." --Back cover.

r s1mily Ties provides a vivid and accessible introduction to the dynamics of life in English families of all ranks from the mid-sixteenth century to the end of World War I. Sections on methods, approaches and sources allow readers new to the study of the past to explore some of the historian's fundamental concerns: cause and effect; continuity and change and the nature and reliability of evidence. The chronological and thematic organization of the book enables readers to examine a number of sub-themes such as the history of childhood or of marriage. Combining extensive contemporary quotations and an unusual variety of illustrations with a wide range of written and material sources, the book provides a fascinating insight into the history of the family and encourages the reader to become a sceptical and imaginative investigator, prepared to venture beyond the historian's traditional documentary sources.
