Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Color is the single most powerful element in decoration; its ability to transform surroundings and to excite a variety of responses is second to none. This book is a celebration of color in interior design, a richly inspiring book of design ideas and solutions.

Tricia Guild has a unique understanding of the many ways in which color works in decoration. Her internationally renowned collections for Designers Guild and her experience as an innovative stylist are testament to her unique color sense. In the introductory section of the book, A Sense of Color, Tricia Guild examines color theory as well as the scope and potential of color in decoration. Seven individual chapters then take a detailed look at the color families--white, blue, green, yellow, natural, terracotta and red--analyzing specific examples, providing color boards for interiors created specially for the book and giving examples and suggestions for color combinations and contrasts. Finally, Tricia provides a section of color palettes, an easy reference to each color family as well as a guide to choosing her special colorways.

Tricia Guild suggests ways of using color to lend energy and warmth to an interior, ways of combining shades, shows how light, scale and proportion can affect a color and demonstrates how color can be introduced into a room by means of objects and soft furnishings. Forget the stale color schemes of pastelshades or off-white and the safe solutions of plain fabrics. Instead, experiment with a glorious palette of aquamarine, sharp lime, cornflower blue and glowing primrose yellow. Once you have introduced color into your surroundings you will never be able to live without it.

How to use the seven basic color families in your home.
