Colour and a sense of fun are central to the RICE ethos. Fresh from the success of her first interiors book, Happy Home, Charlotte has taken the RICE style outside. This is a fun-loving collection of outdoor decorating and styling solutions, from seating and other furniture to lighting ideas, creating banners and buntings, table settings and picnic areas, spaces for parties and gatherings. Taking in garden rooms, outdoor spaces such as cabins, canopies and dining areas as well as moveable spaces such as vintage vans and tents, Charlotte brings her everyday magic and glorious sense of relaxed living with bright colour to every corner of the garden. Whether you own a city verandah, country field or a small courtyard there are outdoor decorating ideas here for everyone.
Danish-born CHARLOTTE HEDEMAN GUENIAU founded RICE in 1998. Charlotte and her French husband Phillippe wanted to change their lives, having lived and worked in Paris for 15 years, so moved to Odense, Denmark and founded their ethical homewares empire.

The company employs 75 people internationally, and creates influential homeware collections that are ethically sourced and produced all over the world.
