USA's leading colour expert shares her secrets on how to create beautiful, satisfying rooms by transforming them with colour concepts that can be applied to various decorative styles.
Susan Sargent's high-end rugs, bedding, paints, pottery, and tableware are known for their vivid colours and patterns, her fabrics are available at over 8000 design centers, including Home Depot Expo and Jo-Ann Fabrics. Colorscapes shows readers how to create their own colour palette, debunking the often mystifying process of picking a colour. The book builds on the success of Sargent's highly-acclaimed colour workshops - held in her studio and stores - and includes secrets until now only shared with workshop attendees.
Each chapter is devoted to a different colour concept in a different room of the house, and they span many decorative styles, including traditional, country, and modern. Sargent discuses how to use colour to solve room challenges, how to use mood boards to plan the colour elements of an entire room, how to achieve a harmonious colour balance, and how to use such familiar tools as paint, fabric, flowers, artwork, glass and tile to add colour.
