“A little girl's sense of color and appreciation of beauty can be stimulated through flowers. Since Caroline was old enough to sit up in her carriage, we always looked for flowers and picked them on our walks.” -Jackie Kennedy

The Digimarc Discover App and Garden Inspirations

Charlotte’s newest book, Garden Inspirations, was released last Tuesday – and here’s the inside scoop on what some lucky readers have found.

Inside, there are five images that lead readers to additional video content. Each video enhances and expands upon various chapter content and themes.

Collaboration-Digimarc

(Above: Page 14 – Collaboration)

The Digimarc Discover App works by scanning the page that’s marked with our “topiary” symbol. You hold your phone close to the picture (you don’t need to get the whole image in the frame – the app works by reading the watermark that’s embedded in the image) and next thing you know, a video is streaming on your phone!

You can find the topiary symbol in the upper left or upper right corner of five images throughout the book.

Collecting-digimarc

(Page 147 right – A Lifetime of Collecting)

This arrangement (above) leads readers to “A Lifetime of Collecting.” Charlotte has been collecting various vases and vessels for years, whether white, blue and white, baskets or silver, and this video showcases her collection – and furthermore – what she puts inside each and every one.

 

Winter-Garden-digimarc-tete

Winter in the Garden may not be as bright and colorful as the rest of Garden Inspirations, but its still a beautiful time of transition and change. At the end of Charlotte’s introduction, she briefly talks about how… and this video is full of additional content on winter in her garden. (Page 22 – top left)

Josephine-digimarc

The chapter titled, Verdant Voices, is full of inspirational women and their gardens. There were so many women to consider, it was hard to choose who would make it into the book. Charlotte has so many photographs and memorabilia from her trips to Malmaison, Empress Josephine was the easy choice. “Josephine’s Verdant Voice” is full of images from these trips and so much more. (Page 211)

French-Gardens-digimarc

Charlotte has traveled the world marveling at various gardens in different countries. With thousands of photos, she could have filled five volumes with photographs from her travels. “The Informing Spirit” is basically a travel log of these gardens, some she has only visited once, and others she has inevitably come back to. This video includes many French gardens that weren’t included in the book, along with one of Charlotte’s favorite Italian Gardens to visit, Villa Gamberaia.

Don't forget, when you see the topiary symbol:

Century Furniture and Charlotte launched her second collection of furniture for Century Icons in April of 2014, available in Century showrooms throughout the country. Creating this collection for Century Furniture was one of those opportunities to sit back, close eyes and imagine how we live NOW.

Today we communicate differently, we entertain differently, we even think differently about how we use our space than we did just a few years ago. So you may notice some unexpected details in this collection, and here's to hoping you do….

Through more than 20 years decorating, no matter the project – large or small – it always seems to come down to the same basic elements – livability, practicality and, of course, wanting it to look good.

The great thing about furniture is it moves! You can play with a floor plan, try different alternatives, and even have two or three plans for a room using the same pieces. Flexibility in decorating keeps it fresh – and always evolving.

Having worked with Century and their stellar team to put together Charlotte's first collection, they had the benefit of experience, and have made upholstered pieces that are luxurious, but welcoming and hospitable. The wood finishes are elegant, sophisticated and modern.

It’s a collection for how we live today.
