Publisher Comments:

Excessive concern about good taste ? as well as spending large outlays of cash?has created an epidemic of "sameness" in American homes. Too many people read home decorating magazines, hire expensive decorators, buy all the "right" materials and furnishings...only to find in the end that their home lacks a personality of its own.

Susan Sargent's New Country Color reflects the design philosophy of renowned artisan Susan Sargent, whose sophisticated yet warm and beautiful objects and furnishings for the home are loved by homeowners and interior design professionals everywhere. Sargent emphasizes spontaneous creativity, do-it-yourself accents, and adding self-expression to all furnishings. Her fresh interpretation of classical forms celebrates design, proportion, and color with a subtle whimsy and playful spirit ? a counterpoint to the bland and costly interior design so prevalent today. Her style is distinguished by a look that is elegant and relaxed, with a tasteful use of color patterns and imagery. Sargent is an innovator and pioneer in combining cutting-edge colors and modern manufacturing practices with mediums that are steeped in tradition. Her innovative and refreshing approach draws from many influences in design: William Morris, Vanessa Bell, Roger Fry, Carl Larsson, Sister Parrish, Mary Englebreit, and Martha Stewart, to name just a few. Filled with over 300 resplendent full-color photographs and inspiring text, Susan Sargent's New Country Color displays the hundreds of ways beautiful handcrafted objects and vibrant, unexpected colors can enhance one's home — and life. This is the one guide readers will turn to again and again for one-of-a-kind interior design ideas.

  • Susan Sargent's work is well known and appealing to a wide audience.
  • Her products are licensed through big-name furniture, linens, fabric, wall covering, and home accessories companies.
  • Features outstanding, full-color photography by renowned interiors photographer Eric Roth
