When design magazines want new and fresh ideas, they turn to James Cramer and Dean Johnson. In Window Boxes, Indoors and Out these two gardeners, designers, artists, and stylists bring a wealth of talent and the freshest eye to the close-up pleasures of window boxes. The book spans a year of invention and innovation at Seven Gates Farm, the authors' nineteenth-century homestead and studio. The results are inspired ideas, hardworking advice, and more than 150 dazzling photographs of these delightful still lifes.

Given four seasons in which to flourish, this once spring/summer-only pleasure goes well beyond traditional garden planters and her baskets. Found objects are given new life as containers for these beautiful tableaux, and everything from wreaths and swags to simple rustic groupings becomes an indoor design element for every room. A full source guide for locating containers, plants, and flowers rounds out this exceptional volume.
