Paint and Color in Decoration celebrates the work of some of the greatest names in interior design, from Robert Adam to David Hicks, and reveals the techniques and materials they pioneered. It is a fascinating history of 400 years of paint, color, and decorative style from Farrow & Ball, the world's leading manufacturer of traditional and modern fine paints.

This volume explores the process of making fine paints and the varying effects produced by different formulations, finishes, and painting methods. Through a wealth of illustrations and in-depth analysis, the book demonstrates what we all instinctively know: color is an essential element in interior design and decoration. The colors have names almost as rich as the history of the houses they adorn, with Passage Yellow, Feasting Green, and Cook's Blue among a panoply of hues whose origins and adaptations for the home are described here in detail.

A source of inspiration for professional and amateur decorators and interior designers alike, Paint and Color in Decoration contains a wealth of ideas and practical information at a time when historic paints have never been more in fashion.

Paint Can!—a lavishly illustrated, inspiring, and instructive primer on how to add decorative flourishes with paint—is the next logical step in her mission. She offers a complete on-the-page course called “Paint 101” and explains just what paint can do, from highlighting architectural details to making small rooms appear larger. And almost every technique is here: colorwashing, working freehand, stenciling, glazing, imitating stoneblock, and adding patterns to a surface. It’s the simple way to add color and personality to every room.
