Eclectic: A Design Aesthetic Inspired by Nature (Figure 1 $42.95), Heather Ross added author to the list of her career accomplishments: artist, photographer and stylist. Ross also owns a décor boutique at 2170 Fir Street in Vancouver, known for its mixture of the new and the found with the natural. Her aesthetic has been called “coastal chic” and her colour palette described as “where the sea meets the shore.”

The Natural Eclectic features over 300 of her photographs that illustrate Ross’s approach to decorating, which is inspired by her West Coast upbringing and two years spent living and antiquing in Paris.
