Brilliant Colour at Home
Brilliant Color at Home is a book that will inspire you to pick up your paintbrush and shout: “I am not afraid!” Using a simple color-wheel system, Elizabeth Hilliard shows how to incorporate brilliant hues into any decorative scheme, providing excellent advice on how to transform drab spaces with paint, fabric, pattern, and light. Luminous photographs of both traditional and modern homes—from a family house in London to a Parisian apartment and a New York City loft—show the exciting range of effects that can be achieved. Trained as an art historian, Elizabeth Hilliard is the author of many successful books on interior design, including Kitchen Living, Fabric: The Fired Earth Book of Natural Texture, Simple Storage Solutions, Country Style, Finishing Touches, Paint: The Big Book of Natural Color, The Tile Book, Kilims: Decorating with Tribal Rugs, and Chandeliers.
