Brilliant Colour at Home

Published by Kyle Cathie

This is a book I have wanted to do for a long time. I’ve always loved bright colour for its cheerfulness and optimism as well as the fact that it simply looks great. There is so much in the shops that’s brilliantly coloured, so many jewel-like interiors in the magazines, and yet there was no book showing how to use bright colour successfully when decorating your home, explaining how bright colour works, and simply celebrating its positive, life-enhancing qualities. Here’s that book…!

Brilliant Colour at Home has chapters on:

§         Introducing brilliant colour  
§         Using authentic colour  
§         Choosing colour schemes  
§         Which colour and why?  
§         Space and colour  
§         Background and foreground  
§         Painted colour  
§         Patterned colour    

This spread is called Citrus Spring and is one of four in Brilliant Colour which shows you combinations of bright colours and gives you a taste of how they work together and how they can work for you. The text on this page says:

The zing and zap of lemon and lime, tomato and orange, bring sunshine into our homes. Juicy and jaunty, these spring-like colours conjure up dewy mornings, picnics in verdant fields, carefree days when the sap is rising and life feels good. Crisp checks and stripes, cheerful flower prints and fringes – the playful quality of these colours carries through happily to their decorative use in patterns and details.

One of the other spreads in this section looks at passionate reds, pinks and oranges – Fire and Spice (pages 70-71). Another considers the effect of splashes of bright colour in a room mostly decorated in pale or neutral shades – Bright Accents (pages 72-73) – and the third celebrates that timeless and much-loved partnership, blue and white – The Delft Touch (pages 74-75).
