Written by Ros Byam Shaw with photography by Jan Baldwin. Divided into chapters according to style, including Classical, Modern Country, City, Country House and Cottage, the first part of the book shows Farrow & Ball paints and wallpapers used in a wide range of unusual and beautiful interiors. In keeping with the provenance of the products, all of the houses and flats shown are British. What they share is a sense of style and an appreciation of the visual and the emotional power of paint and colour.
Part Two of the book is devoted to colour. Each chapter explores a particular palette and shows how colour can be used to create atmosphere, character and charm.
