Garden designer P. Allen Smith is best known for the beauty he creates outdoors. From his monthly segment on the Today show to his own nationally syndicated television programs, people look to him for ways to design, update, or totally reinvent their outdoor garden spaces. Now, for the first time, Allen has turned his attention to the indoors—specifically, how to use the bounty of the garden to decorate the home.

Whether it’s growing a citrus tree in your kitchen, using boxed plants to decorate your dining table, or forcing bulbs into bloom and showcasing them in a fantastic flea market find or a family heirloom, Allen’s sixty-five fail-safe projects are pure inspiration for every room in your home—including the often overlooked entranceway. With inviting color photography and clear, concise instructions, he'll teach you how to choose the right containers for the greatest impact, decorate with the season in mind, pick unusual but visually dramatic props to complement a bouquet, or showcase a collection (such as creamware, baskets,or cast iron) by using them as centerpieces for flowers and plants. As a result, you’ll transform your place into a garden home.

Even if you’re not a gardener, these projects can work in your home, too. A visit to the local plant shop can supply everything you need to make the projects your own. Whether you’re looking to do something as simple as creating a tabletop centerpiece or as sophisticated as using the garden’s bounty to call attention to your artwork, P. Allen Smith’s plethora of ideas and expert know-how will inspire you to bring the outdoors indoors any time of the year.
