In nature, the effect of light can change a scene dramatically. The warm summer sun on an August evening tells a completely different story to that of the harsh light of a cool January morning. This unique reference guide shows how and why even the subtlest colours can evoke a certain mood or feeling. Get enthused by the emotion of colour and learn how to combine and contrast different tones and hues of the neutral spectrum. Create tranquil bedrooms, spacious living areas and light and airy kitchens with this definite guide for using and combining colours in the neutral palette. Page after page of colour schemes show how subtle changes can make a difference to the overall feel, look and ambiance of a space or existing colour scheme. Neutrals are one of the easiest groups of colours to use and work with. They all go together and can be layered mixed and matched. But in The Neutrals Collection the author examines in depth the huge array of neutral colours and combinations available. Alice Buckley studied Textile Design in Manchester where she began working as a textile designer. Her designs have been exhibited and sold throughout Europe and the USA. She now runs a successful interior design practice and is a regular contributor to magazines and other media. Alice lives in Cheshire.
