Gardenista Book Sneak Peek: Glamping in Napa

October 12, 2016

We’re counting down the days until the release of our new book, Gardenista: The Definitive Guide to Stylish Outdoor Spaces. (It’s six days, to be exact—out on October 18.)

To help you get as excited as we are, here’s a preview of one of our favorite outdoor rooms featured in the book: A couple who moved from London to Napa Valley wanted to spend more time enjoying the stunning views from a hill on their property, so they researched safari-style “glamping” outposts and built one of their own.

For more on the Gardenista book, see ordering information below.
