Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Helme, a director of Farrow & Ball, a U.K. paint company, and architectural historian Friedman give a well-executed examination of the use of color and paint in interior decoration from the 17th century to the present. They cover the historic, socioeconomic, and artistic factors that influenced the use of a particular color in the home and review the architects, designers, and artists noted for their innovative use of color in domestic interiors. Most of the book focuses on in situ examples of paint finishes and color on walls and ceilings, divided by color into whites, reds, greens, yellows, and blues. A full-page photograph of the example is accompanied by an explanation of its importance. Recommended for academic and professional collections as well as those that feature historic preservation of houses. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
