  • Featuring stunning photographs of the unique, colorful, and inspired interiors of Gary McBournie
  • Discover the never-before-seen inspirations behind McBournie's designs

With a penchant for painting and an appreciation for the well-designed home since he was a child, Gary McBournie has perfected the art of creating interior spaces with an impeccable eye for color. He established his design firm in Boston in 1993 and has since created warm, elegant, and timeless classic American homes, always with a twist on tradition. Finely attuned to his environment, McBournie develops each interior with a color palette that matches its surrounding exterior, splashing cool and restful hues for a cottage in New England, shades of lime and papaya in the tropics, and warm sunset tones for a ski house in Montana. Featuring personal photographs and the inspirations behind his color choices, Living Color is a must-have for anyone looking to be tickled pink by gorgeous, twenty-first-century renditions of the comfortably chic American home.

About the Author:

Gary McBournie established the design firm Gary McBournie, Inc. in 1993, which now has offices in Boston and Nantucket, Massachusetts, and Palm Beach, Florida. His interiors have been featured in major publications, such as House Beautiful and Traditional Home. In 2009, he was inducted into the New England Design Hall of Fame.

The writer of Living Color, William Richards is the chief marketing officer for Gary McBournie, Inc. and a partner in Gary McBournie Home, his product line.

Review:

[The book] offers a compelling counter-argument to the ubiquitous all-white interior, which McBournie calls "boring, boring, boring." Here, in 16 impeccably photographed projects . . . he deploys his varied palette with clarity, grace and an artist's eye for harmony and balance, creating uplifting environments that hit the sweet spot between warmth and comfort, elegance and gravitas.
(1stDibs Style Compass, December 2013)
