Living with Pattern: Color, Texture, and Print at Home
picture
Features:-
A design book filled with beautiful photography and clear ideas for how to use pattern to decorate your home. If you focus on pattern, from texture and color to furniture and textiles, everything else will fall into place.
 
Pattern is the strongest element in any room. In Living with Pattern, Rebecca Atwood demystifies how to use that element, a design concept that often confounds and confuses, demonstrating how to seamlessly mix and layer prints throughout a house. She covers pattern usage you probably already have, such as on your duvet cover or in the living room rug, and she also reveals the unexpected places you might not have thought to add it: bathroom tiles, an arrangement of book spines in a reading nook, or windowpane gridding in your entryway. This stunning book showcases distinct uses of pattern in homes all over the country to inspire you to realize that an injection of pattern can enliven any space, helping to make it uniquely yours.

Modern Rustic
picture
Features:-
At its heart, the modern rustic look celebrates the fabric of a home, from the roof beams to the brickwork. Wood, stone and steel take center stage. Forget sleek lines and immaculate finishes, this interior style revels in earthy colors and rich textures; in natural materials and the ruggedly handsome bones of a building. In this book, experienced interiors stylist Emily Henson and writer Joanna Simmons walk you through the Elements of the Modern Rustic look. Pure Rustic elegantly blends clean lines with muted shades of gray, black and white. Bohemian Rustic mixes texture and pattern with lots of lush color, while Pop Rustic teams unfinished wood with pops of neon and tongue-in-cheek artworks. Retro Rustic, meanwhile, brings an ultra-relaxed feel, showcasing beaten-up leather armchairs, brickwork floors and old wine crates as kitchen cupboards. In Details, textiles, furniture, fabric and display are explored, while Spaces shows how modern rustic style translates beautifully to every room in the house—and even works outdoors.

    Ode to Color: The Ten Essential Palettes for Living and Design
    picture
    Features:-

    Internationally renowned textile designer Lori Weitzner presents a novel, layered perspective on the use and significance of color in design and culture in this spectacular treasury illustrated with 225 full-color images.

    Ode to Color, a stunning anthology by renowned and award-winning textile and wallcovering designer Lori Weitzner, principal of Lori Weitzner Design, Inc., offers an immersive, sensual, and engaging journey in the world of color as it applies to culture, design, mood, and memory. Each of the ten chapters in this richly illustrated volume presents a distinct color world through an intimate and often kaleidoscopic perspective, a compilation of the numerous—and often shifting—associations and emotions we assign to a color or group of colors.

    Each chapter combines diverse imagery—evocative fine art and photography, environmental interiors, details of Weitzner’s gorgeous designs as well as her sketches and watercolors—with excerpts from literature and her own essays on a wide array of topics relating to the palette. The result is a fully sensory conveyance of each palette’s particular power as well as a consideration of its tangible and intangible connections, from its place in religion, pop culture, and commerce to the impact it has upon our decision making, our moods, and our tastes.

    While each chapter is unique in its approach to the ten worlds, with its mix of essays, prose and range of art, from a Technicolor Disney cartoon in Out Loud to David Bowie as Ziggy Stardust in Silverlight, each chapter includes:

    An introductory essay on a subject that characterizes the palette

    • A two-page photographer of an open drawer in Weitzner’s studio that she has arranged with various fabrics, skeins, and objects that, together, comprise the palette;
    • An evocative two-page word collage that presents both color names and the words commonly associated with the palette;
    • Design pointers that provide in-depth insight to working with color and to decorating with each palette throughout the home, from wall treatments to accessories.

    Spectacular and imaginative, this experiential volume will captivate, inspire, and inform a broad audience, including interior designers and decorators, architects, graphic and fine artists, and anyone interested in art, design, fashion, pop culture, and spiritual discovery. Sumptuous, beautifully designed, and filled with wondrous imagery and compelling stories and facts, it makes an inspiring and unusual gift for almost any occasion.
