Overview

Essence of Blue is the first in a series of beautifully illustrated gift books that focus on essential elements in interior decoration. Alongside stunning photos, the lively text offers insights into the role played by the color blue in one's life and home. For instance, readers will find explanations for why a bedroom is the ideal place to use blue: "Blue is a color that recedes, conjuring up a sense of space and peacefulness, so is the ideal choice for a relaxing bedroom." Images are grouped thematically, with sections on blue in nature, denim and ticking, blue in the kitchen and bedroom. Practical suggestions for incorporating these elements into decorating schemes assure that their "essence" shines through.

Author Biography: Hilary Mandleberg is the author, under the name Hilary Hockman, of Edwardian House Style. Dried Flowers, a collaboration with acclaimed London florist Stephen Woodhams, will be published this year.
