Book review- Outside In: The Gardens and Houses of Tichenor & Thorp!


I have another lovely design book, Outside In: The Gardens and Houses of Tichenor & Thorp from Vendome Press that I wanted to share with you today. Thanks Meghan! In this book authored by architects M. Brian Tichenor and Raun Thorp, you will find exceptional properties that integrate large-scale residences and luxurious gardens and landscapes into a singular, unified vision designed by this Los Angeles-based husband-and-wife team


Without further ado, let's get a glimpse of this stunning book, shall we?

There is so much to love about this gorgeous book and its abundance of awe-inspiring images. Among those featured in this book are a Spanish-inflected courtyard house and garden in Las Palmas; a Bel Air estate tinged with English and French influences; a Newport Beach hilltop hideaway that evokes a Portuguese quinta; a Pasadena retreat inflected with John Soane-inspired details; two luxe Manhattan apartments; and a mountain getaway in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. 

Most photographs are accompanied by essays, captions, drawings, plans and masterly watercolors to give the reader a deeper understanding of how the firm takes each of these elements into account and incorporates them into their projects. 

With 272 pages of breathtaking homes, beautiful interiors, amazing gardens and spectacular landscaping, this inspiring book is ideal for any design, garden or landscaping fans! Trust me, you will be swept away by this visually delightful and engaging book! Highly recommended and shouldn't be missed!
