The perfect window box is not just about the box. Yes, this one is planted with an exquisitely wild jumble of colors and textures, but would it be as charming without that wonderful little window opened up to reveal pots of topiaries inside ... or the espaliered apple trees providing a leafy framework outside ... or even the carefree garden planted beneath, with its multi-colored blooms reaching up with abandonment to meet the tumble of flowers from above?
I wish I had the courage to paint my house that perfect shade of pink. ...............................................
The Home Tours section is a dream if you’re a bit of a nosy parker, full of fabulous photographs of the insides of stylish abodes. And, never mind the weather, the Shop Tours alone will make you want to live in Florida. Interviews with industry big wigs are consistently engaging, offering an insider’s perspective on the world of design. With envy-inducing photography, an eclectic approach and a great sense of humour, Topsy Turvy has lightness of touch that makes it both fun and inspiring.
Because of your wonderful and interesting reviews, I have recently purchased the following books and magazines: San Francisco Style by Diane D. Saeks; the book Dwellings by Stephen Sills and James Huniford; the latest issue of Town and Country magazine (because of your review on Diane Von Furstenburg) and while in the store, I happened to see Veranda magazine and purchased it. Not only are you a great writer, you make things more interesting. You are also a great saleswoman.
