QDR: Quadrille, 2003. Choosing the right colours for your home can be fraught with difficulties and, with literally thousands of shades of paint available in DIY stores, the choice can be overwhelming.<p>With this book Kevin McCloud has taken the hard work out of home decorating by researching, selecting and combining over 750 colours into more than 60 tried-and-tested palettes that will transform your home. <p>Stunningly well produced and printed in six colours for astonishing accuracy, each palette provides a blueprint for a decorative scheme that you can transfer to your own home confident in the knowledge that they have been sourced by a renowned authority on colour with a brilliant visual eye.<p>Taken from a wide variety of sources - historical, regional and cultural - each palette is made up of a collection of 3-16 colour swatches and features a photograph demonstrating how these colours can be used in period or contemporary settings. A palette based on old Chinese silk, for example, is seen in a New York apartment, while the colours of eighteenth-century French porcelain are translated into contemporary country chintz. The swatches are accompanied by hints on how best and in what situations to use the colour, and each is identified by a manufacturer’s paint reference for the appropriate territory. A list of suppliers completes this unique, invaluable reference book.<p>. Hardback. New.
