Description - Colorscapes by Susan Sargent

Susan Sargent's high-end rugs, bedding, paints, pottery, and tableware are known for their vivid colors and patterns. She has a flagship store in Manchester, Vermont. Her fabrics are available at over 8000 design centers, including Home Depot Expo and Jo-Ann Fabrics. Colorscapes shows readers how to create their own color palette, debunking the often mystifying process of picking a color. The book builds on the success of Sargent's highly-acclaimed color workshops--held in her studio and stores--and includes secrets heretofore only shared with workshop attendees. Each chapter is devoted to a different color concept in a different room of the house, and they span many decorative styles, including traditional, country, and modern. Sargent discuses how to use color to solve room challenges, how to use mood boards to plan the color elements of an entire room, how to achieve a harmonious color balance, and how to use such familiar tools as paint, fabric, flowers, artwork, glass and tile to add color.With its conversational and friendly tone, the book conveys Sargent's belief that with color, anyone can create a home full of boldness, serendipity, and personal style.
