Farrow & Ball is an iconic British brand of wallpaper and paints that have wonderfully poetic names like Borrowed Light, Yellowcake and Mouse's Back. The book's beautiful images by Jan Baldwin and words by Ros Byam Shaw, take you through different architectural styles which serve to highlight how to use color and pattern concepts in your own home. Here are just a few of the many striking images that resonated with me.
In my house, both upstairs bedrooms have sloping eves and I am smitten with the interplay of colors and pattern shown here. Very fun!
I could go on and on! Images on each page are like magnificent still life paintings -- composed so brilliantly without being over-styled. Farrow & Ball Decorating with Color is fabulous and inspiring without being intimidating and with a range of decor preferences, there is something for every taste.
Should I have a rating system? How about 5 pots of glitter (out of 5)? A GASP? A swoon? Ideas welcome!
