According to author Vinny Lee, "dark colors don't have to be overpowering or somber." If you've ever considered painting a room scarlet, or allowing a deep blue chair into an otherwise light and unthreatening white room, Mood Indigo will inspire you further in the direction of such bold statements. Lush photographs and commonsense advice are intended to spur on the amateur designer with a penchant for darkness. Chapters and photo galleries are divided by color: blues and greens, reds and purples, browns, and grays and blacks. The introduction explains and explores the irrefutable logic of the color wheel. Whether you're envisioning a "tone on tone" room in varying shades of the same color, or a room where red and gold run up against each other, this book makes a good guide. Highlights include a green room that looks like part of an underwater palace, and a persuasive argument about the beauty of black walls. --Emily WhiteFrom Library Journal:
These two books demonstrate the effective use of bold, dark, and vibrant color in interiors. Lee, interiors editor of the Times magazine of London, successfully shows that "dark colors don't have to be overpowering or somber they can be inviting and comforting." Although she begins with an overview of how light, texture, and tone can affect dark colors, most of her book is a gallery of photographs grouped by different colors and showing the use of each in a variety of interior design styles. The subtitle of Ferer and Palazzo's book is misleading. Rather than providing practical advice for modern decorating, the authors present bold, colorful, and eclectic examples of contemporary interior design by visiting the homes of celebrities and designers such as Bette Midler, Donna Karan, and Bill Blass. Purchase Mood Indigo for large interior design collections.
