A Garden Can Be Anywhere by Lauri Kranz

This gorgeous book is a bounty of creativity and information on planting and maintaining a beautiful and productive edible garden. Lauri Kranz, founder of Edible Gardens LA, has a bit of magic about her, which is clear from the testimonials of her clients (celebrities among them) who give her credit for creating gardens that have changed their lives. Even as an experienced gardener myself, I must say that I fell under her spell while picking up great tips, advice, and inspiration. - S.B.

A Way to Garden by Margaret Roach

Twenty years after it was first published, this classic gardening guide has been updated. I have long loved Roach’s writing (which I first found in Martha Stewart Living) for the way she conveys so much knowledge and expertise in an approachable, encouraging, and personal way. Wise and funny, inspirational and practical, A Way to Garden is the perfect book to sit down and read for pleasure as well as put to good use in the garden. - S.B.

Hand Dyed by Anna Joyce

Chock full of fun projects (including a duvet cover, lampshades, and a hammock), varied dye techniques, and beautifully photographed step-by-step instructions, Hand Dyed is this season’s perfect craft book. There’s nothing like a messy, colorful project for a beautiful spring or summer day that you can enjoy outside. A great supplement to the muted neutrals of the natural dye trend, these dye projects will add a punch of vibrant color to your home and wardrobe. - Megan

Houses: Extraordinary Living by Phaidon Editors

The range of the homes in this book is simply stunning—from classically inspired dwellings made with traditional materials to modern angled masterpieces perched on cliffs. What is clear from this showcase of houses created since the early 20th century is that technology and innovation have allowed architects to push the boundaries of design and helped make their visions a reality. But what is present, always, is the profound interplay of each house with the environment in which it is built. - S.B.

This is an exciting look at over 35 gardens—from raised beds to roof gardens, urban community gardens to micro farms—of many of the world’s leading restaurants. Within its pages, chefs—including Alice Waters (Chez Panisse) and Magnus Nilsson (Fäviken)—share their growing methods (and recipes!) for the herbs, fruits, and vegetables that they nurture and maintain. For anyone who loves to both garden and cook, this book is pure inspiration. - S.B.

Outer Order, Inner Calm and A Guide to Organizing and Realizing Your House Goals

If decluttering and getting organized keeps making your to-do list and never getting done, these books could be the inspiration you need to move from dreaming to doing. We know and love Gretchen Rubin for her book with the cheery title The Happiness Project, and she’s hooked us again with this one: Outer Order, Inner Calm. Ahhhh, already the invitation is irresistible. Open this book to any page and you’ll get a bite-size tip about how to start. She’s kind, practical, reasonable, and encouraging.

If you’re a “before and after” picture junkie like I am, The Home Edit by Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin will appeal to your visually pleasing style. This book is broken into three simple sections: How to edit the contents of each area, how to set up the organization, and how to maintain the new systems. Shearer and Teplin assure you that if they can do it, you can do it. Seeing page after page of colorful “after” pictures with everything color coded, containers galore, and fancy folding is almost as good as seeing it happen in your own home. Whether you are aiming for a version of minimalism or just need that final push to clean some closets and make life simpler, these two books will get you started and see you through. - Jenny
