The basis of Jane Cumberbatch's approach to interior design and decoration is a pared-down uncluttered look, a relaxed mood, and the timeless appeal of natural materials. In "Pure Style Outdoors", she takes her accessible style outside the home to help you make the most of your garden space, whether it is a modest city balcony, roof terrace, or rambling country garden. The book features inspirational suggestions for all the elements that make up the garden - including colour and lighting, boundaries, surfaces, and containers - complemented by the author's favourite selection of flowers, herbs, fruit, vegetables, and other plants.

About the author (2005)

With her vision of a simpler, more natural life, Jane Cumberbatch has acquired a following as an international arbiter of interior style through her best-selling books Pure Style (published in 8 languages and 12 countries), and Pure Style Outside. A former home editor on House and Garden, Jane has worked for the last 12 years as a contributing journalist and styling director on leading publications including Elle Decoration, Homes and Gardens, and Good Housekeeping. Jane's distinctive and simple look has been used in the home furnishing departments and catalogs of many companies such as Habitat, Laura Ashley, and Spiegel. Jane's experience of creating simple, functional and timeless spaces stems from the years she spent restoring an 18th Century house in London, and building an airy white home in Spain. Juggling the demands of family life and three energetic children, Jane divides her time between her Spanish home and her converted warehouse in London. Her homes have been featured in many interior design publications in England, Europe, and America. Pia Tryde's photographs have appeared in many lifestyle books. Her work also regularly appears in international magazines.

Simone Smart has developed a range of stenciled giftware which she sells through mail order, at her shop in Wilton, Wiltshire and through a gallery in 5th Avenue, New York. Her commissions for private clients are extensive and are in addition to her work for V&A Enterprises (giftware for the Victoria and Albert Museum, London). She runs regular stencil workshops, focusing on designing, cutting and spray stenciling.

Pia Tryde is amongst the most talented and versatile of today's photographers and her photography is recognizable by the freshness of her approach. Her use of natural light brings out the truest colors in her subject matter and her shots have an honesty about them that comes from their clean unclutteredness. Her recent work includes pictures for "Julia Bird's Soft Furnishings" and "New Swedish Style" by Sasha Waddell.
