Design icon Charlotte Moss from New York brings her just-published book Garden Inspirations to Southern California for the first time, joining author Anthony Iannacci (Design in the Hamptons), designer Justina Blakeney (The New Bohemians: Cool and Collected Homes), and Jane Scott Hodges (Linens: For Every Room and Occasion) at a group book signing at Mecox on Friday, May 8th, from 4 – 5:30 pm.

Charlotte Moss, Garden Inspirations
Turning her eye to the garden as a resource for interiors, entertaining, and good living, Moss’s Garden Inspirations shows the myriad ways the garden provides inspiration everyday – indoors and outdoors.
“An iconic tastemaker, Charlotte explores how scrapbooking has been influential in her life. She features several of her own scrapbooks along with those of other tastemakers, including Jackie Kennedy. Leave it to Charlotte to make even scrapbooking oh-so-chic!” – Southern Living
Anthony Iannacci, Design in the Hamptons
In Design in the Hamptons, Iannacci looks at nineteen private houses in the Hamptons, Long Island’s exclusive summer retreat – with architecture, interiors, and gardens from celebrity designers including Jonathan Adler and Simon Doonan, John Barman, Fox-Nahem, Thad Hayes, Tony Ingrao, Todd Merrill, Roman & Williams, and Joe d’Urso.
“A refreshing, divergent look at luxurious residences that stand apart from the typical megamansions.” – Library Journal
Justina Blakeney, The New Bohemians
Justina Blakeney’s book, The New Bohemians: Cool and Collected Homes, explores the design of the New Bohemians, creative individuals who are boutique owners and bloggers, entrepreneurs and ex-pats, artists and urban farmers, embracing free-spirited, no-rules lifestyles in all areas of their existence, including their homes.
“The New Bohemians is definitely my favorite new book of 2015 . . . I think this is destined to be the most read, loved, Instagrammed and ‘photographed on people’s coffee tables’ book of the year, so if you’re looking for some new inspiration for spring decorating, check out Justina’s new book.” – Design*Sponge
