In the last decade or so, the modern family house has undergone a design revolution as modern décor and furniture has become the standard and living spaces have been opened up for family interaction. In this book, Caroline Tilston takes us out of the back door and continues this process into the garden. She showcases 29 stylish gardens that have all been designed with both children and adults in mind. The gardens draw on an enormous range of ideas and inspirations, but are all thoroughly modern in the way that they create spaces conducive to family life, whether it is for play or entertaining. They allow adults to relax and unwind from the stresses of the everyday, as well as providing enchantment and excitement for children.
