Editorial Reviews

Review

"Gardening is [Carolyne Roehm's] passion, and her photographs of its blowsy stars are reverent works of art. This book is nothing less than an ode to fragile, fleeting beauty, and it is utterly captivating." -Veranda

"When Flowers by Carolyne Roehm landed on my desk, I was astonished by the beautiful bloom on the cover. Against a pure white background, you can really take in all of the intricacies and subtleties of the flower, right down to the little 'hairs' on the leaves . . . With each turn of the book's massive pages, you're immersed in the the gardens Roehm photographed. I can almost smell them! . . . You won't want to miss this stunner." -Kevin Sharkey, MarthaStewart.com

"Fashion designer Carolyne Roehm’s Flowers is the epic Lawrence of Arabia of flower tomes, featuring 300 images of posies from Roehm’s abundant personal gardens in Connecticut . . . Roehm's book offers countless ideas for flower arrangement BFFs like creamy clematis and ivory roses or the inspired touch of adding strawberries to an arrangement of plump pink, peach, red and white roses. Her book is filled with the kind of visual inspiration that makes you want to dash to your own garden or supermarket and create a bouquet of your own." -HGTVGardens.com

"For this book, Roehm took on an additional task, acting not just as the stylist, but as the photographer too, taking many of the striking shots herself. As a result, Flowers is her most deeply personal--not to mention lush--book yet." -1st Dibs

"From the grande dame of elegant entertaining, Carolyne Roehm's 11th book focuses on what is often considered the ultimate finishing touch for any well-appointed table or party--flowers. Along with personally photographing a large portion of the book, Roehm masterfully relays her knowledge of the infinite details of stylish living." -Traditional Home

"[Flowers is] a big book, physically larger than most coffee table books. And it's heavy and beautifully bound . . . [Carolyne Roehm's] images say it all . . . You won’t be able to put [Flowers] down, once you open it." -New York Social Diary

"A photographic musing on lush gardens and their fleeting beauty." -New York Cottages and Gardens

"Readers are in for a real hortucultural treat . . . The over sized (gigantic in a fabulous way) book is packed with lush imagery." -StyleBeat blog

Bravo!!!!! A Treasure - exquisitely done - but I am not surprised - her work is nothing short of amazing. Two thoughts come to mind when I read Carolyne Roehm's books - she is a totally under-appreciated artistic talent and I am so glad I have her work to inspire me!

Have all of Carolyne Roehm's books - all of them incredibly beautiful and knowledgable - whether it's her garden, her parties,
etc., etc. she knows how to do a beautiful, interesting and knowledgable book - the photographs are incredible and the size of the book (large) gives one a sense of being there in her garden, admiring the beauties of nature. Bravo, Ms. Roehm! for another masterpiece!

Flowers, Carolyne Roehm's new book, was not nearly as beautiful and captivating as I expected.
It was rather predictable, and lacked any interesting close ups of flowers as the cover hinted.

Huge book which makes for a coffee table display. Very interesting photographs that were close up of flowers. Written information was interesting to read. If you are a gardener or photographer you would love this book.
