Editorial Reviews

Review

"It's a rare property that deserves a book of its own. Designer Juan Montoya's rustic stone-and-wood house, located in New York's Hudson Valley, certainly does. In La Formentera, Eric Piasecki's meticulous photographs survey its charmingly overstuffed rooms and the surrounding 110 acres of gardens, streams, and woodlands punctuated by contemporary sculpture." —Elle Decor

"Need a short break in the country? Look no further than your bookshelf. Juan Montoya presents four seasons of beauty in oversized photographs of his divine property and house in Garrison, New York. Over the course of 40 years, Montoya has created a spiritual refuge from a former commune." —New York Observer

"Interior designer Juan Montoya has created an idyllic masterpiece on more than a hundred wooded acres in Garrison—and a gorgeous new book." —New York Cottages & Gardens

"This lovely book with the photographs of Eric Piasecki and a winsome introductory essay by Karen Lehrman Bloch began casually as a personal project when Juan asked his friend Eric to take pictures of his home in every season." Traditional Home

It is huge and heavy and almost wordless. A book to get lost in imagining being there. Shows what careful stewardship can do for a tract of Eastern deciduous forest.

The book covers all four seasons of the most beautiful land I believe I have ever seen. It was wonderful to see the attention to detail by the photographer. More than a coffee table book, it pulled me into a sensuous remembrance of special times in the woods!
