Tricia Guild: Decorating With Color
208 pages, $60
Author and designer Tricia Guild, known for her eponymous fabric, furniture, and wallpaper collections, has been redecorating homes with bold patterns, strong hues, and contemporary lines for over 40 years. Her latest book, Tricia Guild: Decorating With Color, takes an educated look at the five basic color families (including 25 color schemes), and demonstrates how to use color and pattern to create interesting, dramatic, and personalized interiors. Showcasing memorable interiors all over the globe—from contemporary London lofts to the California Wine Country—the book is as much a travelogue as a design tome. Guild shares her experiences in creating incredible interiors, exploring why we are drawn to certain colors and patterns, where does inspiration come from, and using color as a starting point to establish the right mood and tone. Thankfully Guild takes the guesswork out of often one of the hardest—and most important—elements of interior design.
