Following on from the best-selling Farrow and Ball Living with Colour, this book features a fabulous range of homes, all of which have been specially photographed for the book. Whether an Italian palazzo, a converted factory in Paris, the attic of an Amsterdam canal house, or a family home in Southern Germany, these are interiors to intrigue and delight, full of fresh ideas and clever ways to use paint and wallpaper. The book is divided into three main chapters: Classical, Country, and Contemporary. Under these headings, each of the 18 locations is presented as a case study. In addition, spread throughout the three chapters are ten informative Decorating Principles, containing discussion and analysis of a decorating concept that one or more of the locations illustrates particularly well. Highlighting the different effects that can be achieved with colour and pattern, the focus of the Decorating Principles is on enabling the reader to adopt and adapt these concepts and put them into practice in their own home.

More About the Author

Ros was born in London in 1960. She read English at Oxford and her first job was working for an antique dealer who specialised in early silver. Her most difficult task was being taken for a walk by two English mastiffs, both of whom weighed more than she did.

Fortunately, it wasn't too long before she was offered a job at The World of Interiors, an innovative magazine based in upstairs rooms on Fulham Road. She was Features Editor for several years, left to work as a freelance writer, and then returned after the birth of her first daughter to work part time. When her second daughter was born, Ros went freelance again which is where she has remained ever since, writing about houses, their occupants and their interiors. Ros has written and contributed to many books and is the recipient of several awards.

In 2002 she moved from London to the West Country to a 16th century house close to the sea. The restoration of the house is now finished, but the large garden is an ongoing project.

She is the author of the forthcoming title Farrow & Ball Living with Colour, along with Interiors by Design, Old House New Home and the bestselling Perfect English and Perfect English Cottage (all published by Ryland Peters & Small).

'Any book by Ros Byam Shaw inspires confidence and delight, being brilliantly researched and handsomely illustrated.' The World of Interiors

4.0 out of 5 stars real interiors 3 Dec 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
some American readers may be put off by the sometime quirky interiors. The concept of the book is continental European houses which use FB paints so the houses are not English however the book is full of interesting and unusual color combinations which will surely give you many new ideas for your home.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Brands that Britain Can Offer 5 Dec 2013
By K.
Format:Hardcover
If you love elegant and vibrant interiors, if you're a fan of the greatest interior design magazines you surely must have heard about Farrow & Ball paints and wallpapers. Yes? No? Even if the F&B logo doesn't say anything to you, to my mind it's high time we all got to know a bit more about Farrow & Ball - the brand that should be named together with cricket, Savile Row tailoring, roast beef and even Downton Abbey, when we talk about Britain and all the classy things it has to offer to the rest of the World!

Could we find a better way to get acquainted with something than flicking through pages of a beautiful book?

This book offers a plethora of photographs depicting stylish homes. Exploring these flats, villas and houses, that seem so different, you'll get acquainted with myriads of possibilities how Farrow & Ball paints and wallpapers become a perfect backdrop for antique furniture or contemporary artworks.

You will also be invited to read interesting stories how the owners tamed there homes. How they changed and shaped them into something that can now be called their fortresses. There's so much love involved, it's unbelievable!

Summing it up - don't miss your chance to see some beautiful classical and contemporary interiors and to meet brilliant owners and decorators, who value Farrow & Ball, the company, that has always stayed true to its roots - with products still being made in Dorset by craftsmen, still formulated with traditional ingredients, and still bearing memorable names!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful colour schemes and history of houses 8 Aug 2014
Format:Hardcover
I purchased this book from another site and it is wonderful. There are examples of Farrow & Ball colour schemes in differently styled rooms, cupboards and kitchen cabinetry. I love reading about the history of some of the homes and soon became so engrossed in the background stories I completely forgot that I purchased the book to compare different colour schemes in the 'flesh' so to speak. If you enjoy interior design books or just love looking at different interiors this book is a must.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed 26 Oct 2013
Format:Hardcover
I have to agree with the previous review. Beautifully produced as usual but the content disappoints, the previous title was so more accessible. I don't connect with these pictures of glossy gazzillionaires homes. There is nothing I can take from this and as beautiful as John Nicholsans Spitafields house is, is been a feature of more RPS books than you can shake a stick at. Were these overs from a previous photo shoot? Or just lazy picture research? If I'd looked at this in a shop prior to ordering it I wouldn't have bought it it's definitely not worth 35.00 and is not something I would recommend purchasing.

2.0 out of 5 stars Still having to pay to read about F&B!
Ros Byam Shaw continues, poor thing, to bang on about F&B in terms of fulsome praise. You would have thought that if someone makes paint, you pay them for the paint and that's it. Read more
