A comprehensive handbook of all the crucial information interior designers need to know on a daily basis.

In the world of interior design, thousands of bits of crucial information are scattered across a wide array of sources. Color, Space, and Style collects the information essential to planning and executing interiors projects of all shapes and sizes, and distills it in a format that is as easy to use as it is to carry.

  • Section 2, ôSpaceö examines ways of composing rooms as spatial environments while speaking to functional and life-safety concerns.
  • Section 3, ôSurfaceö, identifies options in color, material, texture, and pattern, while addressing maintenance and performance issues.
  • Section 4, ôEnvironments,ö looks at aspects of interior design that help create a specific mood or character, such as natural and artificial lighting, sound and smell.
  • Section 5, ôElements,ö describes the selection and specification of furniture and fixtures, as well as other components essential to an interior environment, such as artwork and accessories.
  • Lastly, section 6, ôResources,ö gathers a wealth of useful data, from sustainability guidelines to online sources for interiors-related research.
