Arts and Crafts CarpetsTotal Hits - 355  |  Hits Today - 0Rating:   Rating Average (0)    |  View Ratings  |  Add Your Rating
Haslam's ( The Real World of the Surrealists ) attractively illustrated volume focuses on Britain's late-19th- and early-20th-century arts and crafts movement, highlighting prominent designers and styles of handmade carpets. Much of the text is devoted to William Morris, whose Hammersmith style incorporated Gothic floral motifs and Persian medallions, and C.F.A. Voysey, whose Donegal carpets' harmonious, glowing color schemes were influenced by work from Turkey. The production process is presented: we see the grids on which designers planned colors and patterns, as well as photos of the weavers, who completed an average of 25 hand-knotted rows, or two inches of carpet, per day. Quotes from turn-of-the-century artisans, writers and critics provide sometimes passionate opinions of handmade goods, mass production and floral vs. geometric imagery. Color and duotone photos of lush carpets in exhibitions and in the home enliven the text, making for a leisurely browse that is both informative and a treat for the eyes.

At Home With Color Total Hits - 613  |  Hits Today - 0Rating:   Rating Average (0)    |  View Ratings  |  Add Your Rating
We all have favourite colours that make us feel happy, comfortable, and relaxed. When it comes to decorating our home, these are the colours to which we turn. But there is more to successful decorating with colour than navigating our way through paint charts. The appearance of colour alters in changing light, in small or large spaces, in rooms with high and low ceilings, in interiors that are heavily or sparsely furnished. "At Home with Color" by Matthew and Grainne Dennison addresses all these issues and shows you how to achieve a stylish, cohesive look in every area of the home. In contemporary homes living spaces are arranged fluidly: one area flows into another in increasingly informal arrangements. "At Home with Color" reflects this trend, showing you how to use colour throughout your home, in spaces for entertaining or relaxing, in bathrooms, kitchens, and bedrooms.
