Color made easy with design diva April Cornell. Designer April Cornell--owner of more than 100 boutiques throughout North America, as well as a successful wholesale company--walks home decorators through the mysteries of choosing and combing hues, of transforming a house from blah to brilliant, and of using color to create a mood. Every photo pulsates with richness and texture, and the images provide ample instruction on drawing from nature s own palette, bringing visual contrast into home décor, and defining personal colors. Throughout, Cornell offers specific paint suggestions and quick decorating ideas, including plans for adding bright details (vivid duvets, vibrant tablecloths) everywhere, decorating a child s room in lively, happy tones, and even entertaining colorfully. April Cornell has beautifully translated her artful combinations of color and floral designs into exquisite collections of romantic clothing, linens, and home accessories. She designs her own lines for the more than 100 April Cornell and La Cache boutiques in North America, as well as for her wholesale company, Cornell Trading.
