Perfect Palettes: Inspirational Colour Schemes for the Home Decorator
Perfect Palettes: Inspirational Colour Schemes for the Home Decorator
One of the most enjoyable and challenging tasks when approaching the decoration of any interior is the colour choice. The power to transform a room from the run-of-the-mill to the sensational with the application of the right paint and accessories is akin to twenty-first century alchemy. Some lucky people have the ability to visualise a finished room, and effortlessly gather together the elements needed.

That is where Perfect Palettes come in. This book is about making colour work, examining how colours interact with each other, which combinations never fail, which accent colour can transform a tried-and-tested, but maybe a little tired, formula into one that refreshes and excites.

100 Ideas that Changed Street Style
100 Ideas that Changed Street Style is a look-by-look dissection of the key ideas that changed the way we dress from the middle of the 20th century to the present day explaining the most iconic items of clothing and how they were worn, what the look was born of, its cultural background, how it was received and how it still resonates in fashion today. The modern wardrobe owes its development not just to fashion designers in Paris or Milan but also to gangs and movements brought together by a shared appreciation of music, sport or a particular underground culture, and a certain style that defines membership. These styles have rocked establishments, created stereotypes, expressed social division as much as they have united people, entered the language, spread around the world and, above all, transformed dress for a wider public.
