Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Paint and wallpaper are usually the least expensive element in any interior design yet also the most difficult to get right. This book simplifies the process, using Olivers simple, straightforward but extremely stylish approach to color and light. David Olivers use of color in interior design has brought him both great acclaim and a star-studded roster of private clients. This is his first book, and it functions as a master class in paint, paper, and light. He shows what works and why by demonstrating how the combined influences of light and pigment affect the changing quality of color in a room. In his designs, Oliver seeks to recreate the unique vitality and depth of color found in fine art pigments by using the finest ingredients and technology available today. The book also explores his tonal color-by-number system for ceilings, cornices, walls, and woodwork, creating a harmonious balance of light and color by accentuating various interior elements in a room. It combines an array of practical ideas and planning advice with actual case studies making it an inspirational reconsideration of color for anyone interested in interior design.
