About this title


Paint is today's and tomorrow's most versatile and effective decorating material. To the best of our knowledge, paint has been used in very age and every culture across the world. Paint: The Fired Earth Book of Natural Colour aims to celebrate and approach the subject of paint through colour in all its sensual possibilities, taking its inspiration from the delicious images, tones and textures that surround us in our everyday world. Think colour before paint, and only then can we return to the practicalities of using it in our homes. Paint takes the landscape of nature as its inspiration. Colours are divided into families that are represented by a natural terrain to create a universe of colour: Arctic Tints explores a variety of whites, including snow, chalk and ice; Ocean Wash celebrates blues and mauves, inspired by the sea and hot azure sky: Forest Hues revels in lush leafy settings, springy moss and yellower tones of olive and mustard; rich earthy colours and deep reds form a natural family called Earth Tones; Desert Shades engage us through soft neutrals and pearly nuances, and finally, Kaleidescope creates an explosion of colour to joyfully explore contemporary bright colours. In conjunction with the well-known company. Fired Earth, who produce a range of specialist paints, this unusual book contains breathtaking inspirational and interiors photographs as well as an intelligent text that explores the history and practical, as well as thought-provoking, use of paint within our homes. Fired Earth is synonymous with natural and timeless decorating, taking inspiration from the natural products that come from the land. Its range of products includes tiles, tribal rugs, natural floor and wall coverings, as well as paints.
