Book Reivew: Farrow and Ball How To Decorate

Living, as we do, in a period home that is most definitely a project in progress, I'm always on the lookout for the most gorgeous, most inspirational, most beautiful books for me to devour, and, happily, I can then pass the details of the best of those on to you - just in time for Father Christmas to pick them up for your stocking!

Today, I bring you Farrow and Ball's new book How To Decorate. As a girl obsessed with paint colours, this is way up there in my dream book category.

Typical of all Farrow and Ball's products, How To Decorate exquisitely presented, with a mix of glossy photographs, brown paper info pages and incredibly informative text but it's in no way just a collection of pretty pictures.

The authors, Charlotte Cosby (Head of Creative) and Joa Studholme  (Colour Expert), clearly know exactly what they are talking about so that the book doesn't feels like an extended Farrow and Ball advertorial.

Their depth of knowledge and enthusiasm for the power of colour is infectious. I guarantee that you'll find yourself wanting to pick up a paintbrush before you've finished the first chapter!

Divided into three parts: Where To Start (looking at factors that should influence your decisions), The Manual (which colours look best where and why) and The Directory (technical information), this will be a book that you dip into again and again and again. How To Decorate has been published to coincide with Farrow and Ball's 70th anniversary, this is a brand that has earned its stripes.
