Grace Bonney, of Design*Sponge, is our very first blogger for our new fall series: What Makes a House a Home. Over the next few weeks, on Wednesdays, we'll be featuring a different blogger writing about their home. In today's column, Bonney shares her tips for bringing the outside in, and we showcase three homes (and home-decorating ideas) from the brand-new Design*Sponge book. Take a look at the living rooms of Nicolette Camille Owen, Joy and Tyler Thigpen, and Dave Alhadeff!
Our final What Makes a House a Home column is from photographers and brand-new parents Gemma and Andrew Ingalls. You've seen their photography in GARDEN DESIGN magazine (including on our November/December cover) and we're thrilled to share their apartment and magnificent houseplants with you.
