"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

I loved this book. It caught my eye immediately at my town library. We are about to make some changes and improvements on our property which has a very similar feel to the one in this book. the trees, lake, stream, stone, wood, grass, daffodils on the island, canoes, etc all evoke a wonderful woodsy feeling. Hard to believe these places are so close to NYC. Would love to see this property in person!
and I love the comment about respecting the land/nature doesn't mean you must leave everything as it is or as it's found.
