The newest book in this series takes a lively look at the resurgence of colour in our interiors. Over the last twenty years designers have emphasised neutrality and there has been a dearth of colour. Now, at the beginning of the 21st century much can be made of colour's vibrant return. The book addresses the aesthetic effect of colour versus neutral in interiors and offers suggestions on how to use colour when planning a design. Divided into colour-themed chapters the book again features photography from the magazine, with text discussing the designer's use of colour in an interior, tablescape or floral arrangement. Each chapter closes with a specific designer's perspective on colour and the challenges of translating them into a successful interior so that the colour feels so right, it's not even noticed.
