Decorating with Color

Auteur: April Cornell

Taal: engels
How to choose and combine colors to give any room a fresh look Color is one of the most effective ways to give new life to a home, but how do you know which shades will please you for years to come? Decorating with color and pattern can be fun and exciting when you follow the advice of accomplished designer April Cornell. She will explain how to determine which colors are most appealing to you and inspire you to introduce those hues into your decor. Once you know Cornell's professional secrets, you will feel confident and satisfied with your color choices.Taal: engels
April Cornell—owner of more than 110 boutiques in North America and proprietor of a successful whole-sale company—demystifies the process of choosing and combining colors for home decorating. Her quick and creative ideas will make it easy for anyone to achieve great results. "Being an artist doesn't mean you can draw; being an artist means you can see," writes Cornell. "And that is what this book is all about—being aware of color and bringing it into your life." Where do you find the inspiration for defining and developing your sense of style? Go outside for a walk and let nature guide your choice of color. You can also try to recall when color first made an impression on you. Was it the soft blue of your childhood bedroom, for example, or a brightly wrapped gift under the Christmas tree? Based on your responses, Cornell will explain how to build your personal color palette. This palette will include your own unique balance of light and dark tones and shades. Then, by working with prints, solids, and patterns in your favorite colors, you can add interest and style to a room. How do you turn inspiration into reality? Cornell offers fast and easy tips for bringing color into a home, including specific suggestions for paint shades that work well together. Setting a mood, evoking a time or place, and brightening a dark space are just some of the great ways color can transform a setting. In fact, adding small touches—like replacing a drab duvet cover with a vibrant new one—can greatly enhance your decor. Cornell even reveals how to entertain colorfully, by providing deco-rating tips for parties and other special occasions. Now it's time to enjoy the colors that surround you—in every room.

Driven to Distraction

Auteur: Jeremy Clarkson

Brace yourself, Clarkson's back. And he'd like to tell you what he thinks about some of the most awe-inspiring, earth-shatteringly fast and jaw-droppingly gorgeous cars in the world (alongside a few irredeemable disasters . . . ).

The world according to Clarkson is a perplexing place, filled with thorny subjects like: the prospect of having Terry Wogan as president; why you'll never see a woman driving a Lexus; the unforeseen consequences of inadequate birth control; and, why everyone should spend a weekend with a digger Fearless, independent, surprising and laugh-out-loud funny. Driven to Distraction is full-throttle Clarkson at his best; a unique look at the joys, absurdities and frustrations of modern life. With wheels. Buckle up, get comfortable, and hold on tight. There's no one who writes about cars like Jeremy. . .

Everyday Icon

Auteur: K. Betts
Michelle Obama and the power of style

In many ways the world has never seen a First Lady like Michelle Obama. From the precedent of her race to the singularity of her style, she has been the object of immense fascination. What she says, what she does, and not least, what she wears, is scrutinized around the world.

Writing at the crossroads of politics and fashion, Kate Betts explains why Michelle Obama’s style matters, and how she has helped liberate a generation of women from the false idea that style and substance are mutually exclusive. Following the transformation of Mrs. Obama from her early days on the campaign trail to her first state dinner at the White House, Betts, a longtime fashion journalist and former editor in chief of Harper’s Bazaar, reminds us that while style can be expressed in what you wear, it is inextricably bound up in who you are and what you believe in. In a smart, breezy voice backed by extensive interviews and historical research, Betts shows how Michelle Obama’s bold confidence and self-possession have made her into an icon and transformed the way women see themselves, their roles, and their own style.

With two hundred color photographs, original designer sketches, and historical images, Everyday Icon is not only a lavish tour of our First Lady’s style statements, but also a fascinating behind-the-scenes account of how she created her image and, more important, what that image says about American style today. Much has been written about Michelle Obama, but Kate Betts places her in a broader cultural and historical context; Everyday Icon is the definitive book on how a working mother of two became an unforgettable, global style icon.
