Synopses & Reviews
The book is arranged, naturally, by color -- Martha's colors, which are inspired by the colorful objects around us. Delft, for example, was the inspiration for the chapter on incorporating blues and whites into a room. Daffodil, with its cheerful flower, became the inspiration for decorating with yellows. Each chapter demonstrates how degrees of color, whether only a hint -- a blue blanket or a few yellow vases -- or full, vibrant color, can completely transform a room. As no other book has ever really done, Decorating with Color shows how to add color in stages, how color acts on its own, and how it interacts as part of a palette. Each chapter features projects such as making a folding screen or creating prints on a chair, adding to the appeal of a book that is dedicated to an endlessly evolving aspect of interior decor.
