About the Author
Kevin McCloud is one of Britain's foremost authorities on domestic architecture and design. Kevin is best known as the writer and presenter of the hugely popular Channel 4 series 'Grand Designs' and for his annual coverage of the Stirling prize for architecture. Through his columns in the Sunday Times and Grand Designs magazine he regularly champions issues such as building within the historic environment and sustainable construction. His most recent TV project, Kevin McCloud and the Big Town Plan, saw him initiate a community-led regeneration scheme in a former Yorkshire mining town. Another ambitious project is planned for 2008 as Kevin's company HAB (Happiness, Architecture, Beauty) is set to build around 150 homes within a sustainable community in Wiltshire. Kevin is currently filming a new series of Grand Designs, which will return to our screens later in 2008, but when not filming he continues to design paint ranges for Fired Earth.

And while the colours are very nice, perhaps one reason I still can't work out what colours go with what, is that there aren't many colours in here that I would actually use in my home. The style is very classic / seaside cottage and I'm more of an urban trendy sort of gal.
