Subtle and allusive, bold and invigorating, colour is one of the single most powerful elements in design and decoration. Even its absence makes its presence felt. The choice of colours on offer to the home decorator is dazzling and potentially baffling - from coloured saucepans and kitchen appliances to paint and tiles - and colour, like never before, is affordable and accessible. Yet handling colour effectively does take both confidence and a degree of expertise. In Conran on Colour Terence Conran shares a lifetime of experience as one of the world's leading designers, retailers and restaurateurs to explain how to make the most of this vibrant and dynamic ingredient. With reference to a wide range of sources, from nature and fashion to street markets and works of art, he reveals how to translate such examples into practical strategies for bringing colour into your home. Packed with fascinating detail, sound advice and a wealth of inspiration, the book is illustrated with engaging contemporary interiors from around the world - homes that display a fresh blend of thoughtful design and individual character. As such examples reveal, using colour successfully is as much about well-judged accents and focal points as it is in the choice of wall colour or floor covering.... 174 graphic schemes black and white 43 blue 64, 78-9 green II2 navy as contrast 61 red 138-9 yellow 162-5 green 106-27 and blue 73-5 ... background colour 40 black 203 blue 58, 64a5, 67, 77, 144 copper and bronze 99, 101 focal point 39, 77 green 109, II.3, 117 grey ... lime green 108, 145 limestone 119, 173, 181, 211 linen 189 linoleum 46 live-workspace 90, 110, 155 living room blue 60, 69, 77, 72, anbsp;...
