House + Flower
Reviving Forgotten Homes and Gardens
Cynthia Zamaria immerses the reader in her creative process sharing how she infuses gardens, flowers and other elements of nature into sensitive home design. Through engaging photography and a welcoming narrative, this book inspires us to celebrate living environments as expressions of our personal style while also embracing a home’s unique soul. With a passion for character-filled spaces, carefree floral displays, and an appreciation for vintage and artisanal objects, Cynthia’s approach is timely, yet timeless. Readers are invited to see the potential in their own homes through the reimagined interiors and exteriors of the many Toronto-area residences she and her husband, Graham, have restored over the years.
Cynthia is a home and garden creative who believes that every home is a beautiful work in progress, she invites you into her homes and willingly shares her inspiration and creativity through her writing, presentations, and published works.
