COLOUR CHARTED

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Decorating -

New book ‘Spec­trum: Her­itage Pat­terns and Colours’ (£24.95, Thames & Hud­son) ex­plores the pal­ettes used by de­sign­ers when cre­at­ing up­hol­stery fab­rics and wallpapers, from the 15th cen­tury to the present day. Along­side each em­broi­dery de­tail and de­sign there is a grid that shows the dif­fer­ent ways those shades have been com­bined at var­i­ous pe­ri­ods in time. A great dec­o­rat­ing source for un­der­stand­ing the his­tory of colour.
