Interiors fashions come and go, but iconic British brand Farrow & Ball transcends passing trends and has become a byword for its sophisticated wallpapers and highly pigmented paint.
Following on from the best-selling Farrow & Ball Living with Colour, this exciting book features a diverse range of fabulous homes. Whether a converted factory in Paris, the attic of an Amsterdam canal house or a family home in Southern Germany, these interiors are full of fresh ideas and clever ways to use paint and wallpaper.
The book is divided into three main chapters: Classical, Country and Contemporary. Under these headings, 18 locations are presented as case studies. In addition, spread throughout are ten informative Decorating Principles, each one discussing a different decorating concept and enabling the reader to put it into practice in their own home.
At the end of the book there is a glossary of Farrow & Ball's popular neutral colour palettes and information on choosing the right type of paint. Practical, intriguing and often surprising, this is a book certain to inspire creativity in all home decorators.
