On My Bookshelf: Exciting New Botanical Books for 2016

Wednesday, February 3, 2016

Hello and happy February!  As the second month of the year begins, I am planning a reading list for the year ahead and thought I'd share a couple of the titles I am eagerly awaiting.  In 2016 I'll be sharing more book reviews as the "On My Bookshelf" section of The Gilded Bloom grows.  I hope you'll read along...

Botanical Style by Selina Lake, a talented interior stylist, and bestselling author of Romantic Style among other inspiring titles, is a design book about bringing nature, plants, and flowers into the home.  It discusses the sources of botanical style and then explores five different aspects of the botanical look in interiors:  Vintage Botanicals, Boho Botanicals, Industrial Botanicals, Natural Botanicals and Tropical Botanicals.  It also includes styling tips and DIY projects from Selina throughout the book.  It will be available on March 10th.

This title celebrates the work of Ariella Chezar a renowned floral designer whose loose, unstructured arrangements are recognized for their artful beauty.  The Flower Workshop:  Lessons in Arranging Blooms, Branches, Fruits and Foraged Materials includes step-by-step instructions for 50 floral projects for all occasions.  It will be released on March 1st but in the meantime  her website is filled with flowers and inspiration to dazzle the eye. 


  1. I love the idea behind this new series Lisa - it is always helpful to see what others are reading. I had already pre ordered Botanical Style as I love Selina Lakes books, but The Flower Workshop was new to me so I am looking forward to the release of that one too.

    1. I am looking forward to a year of good books and it is such fun to share them with friends. The publication schedules look enticing for 2016!

      Thanks for visiting Julie.
