It has been more than a decade since Carolyne Roehm first shared her love of gardening and flower arranging. Now, for the first time ever, she turns her own photographic lens to that passion with Flowers, showcasing more than 300 images of the varieties in her abundant gardens, all captured at their most vibrant and exquisite moments throughout the season.
With a gardenerâ€™s intimate understanding and a designerâ€™s elegant eye, Roehm shows us the flowers she has cultivated for decades in and around Weatherstone, her historic Connecticut home. While alternating dramatic close-ups with portraits of lovely arrangements and sweeping views of her land, Roehm writes with wit, emotion, and affection of what flowers have meant to her, as well as of the joys and travails of the committed gardenerâ€™s life.
What began as a casual hobby ultimately became a multi-year endeavor, as Roehm used her camera to explore the special relationship a gardener enjoys with her carefully nurtured beauties. The outcome is a remarkably personal visual essay: sumptuous, surprising, and as revealing of the sensibility behind the camera as the magnificent species that stand before it.
This beautiful objet dâ€™artâ€”a flower garden in a bookâ€”is Carolyne Roehmâ€™s most significant and singular volume yet.

Picture of chair on the front. Product Description â€œNatureâ€™s quintessential color combination of blue and white never ceases to amaze me. The look of pristine snow against deep blue Aspen skies; spires of blue and white delphinium in a garden; Connecticutâ€™s spring mornings where the apple blossoms and nodding heads of white narcissus are in contrast to soft blue skies and vibrant green grassâ€”these and many more images found in nature have informed my work for the last thirty-five years. From fashion to interiors, and tabletop to gardens, the presence of blue and white is a constant in my past collections as well as throughout my previous eight books. It seems natural that I would eventually do a book on living and designing with this seminal color combination.â€ â€”from the Introduction This private tour of the dazzling homes of legendary style-setter Carolyne Roehm showcases her favorite color combination in more than three hundred glorious photographs. From the time designer Carolyne Roehm rented her first small apartment in New York in her twenties, she has loved blue and white. In that one-bedroom flat, she draped the walls, chairs, sofa, and a canopy bed in an inexpensive blue and white sheeting fabric designed by her boss, Oscar de la Renta, and began collecting blue-and-white porcelain from around the worldâ€”initially bargain reproductions and eventually museum-quality piecesâ€”from China, Japan, Portugal, the Netherlands, and elsewhere. Today, Carolyne Roehm presides over a magnificent duplex in Manhattan, an antique-filled stone house in Connecticut, and a chic yet rustic home in Aspen, all of which contain rooms decorated in blue and white, featuring accents from her collections of china, ceramics, glassware, linens, furniture, and decorative pieces. These rooms employ the whole spectrum of blues, from delicate sky to the deepest, boldest navy, evoking moods ranging from tranquil to vibrant. In A Passion...

With the sheer creativity of her work, its originality, its awe-inspiring ambition â€“ and its lasting influence - few contemporary designers approach her importance. Â This book is a first: it is both a breathtaking exploration of her achievement; and an authoritative insight into how this entirely original designer works. Â Author Marcus Binney is one of the most internationally renowned writers on architecture and design. In interviews and in ravishing illustrated essays, he throws light on an astonishing process. Hempelâ€™s work, which spans two Blakes hotels in London and Amsterdam; the minimalist Hempel in London and Warapura in Brazil; private houses, from the incomparable English country house, Cole Park, to properties across the globe; the iconic Turkish gulet Beluga, with its black sails caught in the sunset; and her garden designs....all are design elements interlinked. All come together in one extraordinary designer.

In Decorating in Detail, Alexa shares the development process for eight elegant homes in locations from New York City to New Orleans. Walking readers through each room, she describes how she and the homeowners chose all of the elements, from textures to fabrics to furniture.
