outdoors galore

October 22nd 2013 Comments: 3 Topics: , , ,

Hot off the presses and currently in our hot little hands, is the new book from our dear friend, Lisa Newsom. Veranda: The Art of Outdoor Living is the second book from the delightful founder and editor emeritus of Veranda Magazine.
9781618370846_p0_v1_s260x420Using her masterful editing skills, Lisa has combed her issues and distilled the best and most beautiful of outdoor living into the leaves of this lush tome.

We’re very honored and proud to be gracing the cover of this new book. The image is from a house we designed in Nashville, Tennessee which was published by Veranda in 2007 (a reprint of the article is posted below).  The house’s outdoor dining space, a classical towering pavilion, was prominently spotlighted on the cover of that issue. We’ve been told by the powers-that-be that this was the top selling issue of Veranda in the history of the magazine.  We sincerely hope it brings the same good fortune to Lisa’s new book.

You can get your copy of Veranda: The Art of Outdoor Living here.  We discussed Lisa’s last book, The Houses of Veranda in a previous blog post, which can be found here.

All the stylish coffee tables should be wearing these books.

    Wonderment is the only word I need say! While you’re on the subject of outdoor scapes and design, I’d like to hear how the McAlpine Tankersley “think tank” approaches hardscaping.
