I have always enjoyed Laurence Llewelyn Bowen's TV creations - they always look "right." But it is very difficult trying to copy his ideas in ones own space - that is, until I read this book. It is fantastic, explaining the reason why the eye enjoys looking at certain scenes and not others. He gives so much information on effects of light, its direction and quality; textures that absorb and reflect light; sizes, in relation to the room and pieces of furniture and decoration; colours, how they work together and apart, etc. etc. A joy to read and even more fun applying his basics to my own designs. Thank you Laurence.
