New York-based interior designer Charlotte Moss, also an avid gardener, describes her technique in creating memorable and inspiring outdoor oases. “Atmosphere, an ephemeral quality, is the perfume of a place,” she writes. In a garden, that atmosphere is shaped not only by the living landscape, but by the story it weaves for us as we move through it. Interconnectedness, Moss insists, is what we instinctively crave in our surroundings. In our gardens as in our homes, we define a space and give it meaning through the choices we make in its design. Her book, Garden Inspirations, is a collection of insights into this process.
