World renowned paint effects guru and colour expert Annie Sloan considers what makes a successful interior. Style and colour lie at the heart of the matter, but both can be stumbling blocks for the amateur decorator. Annie explains how to achieve your chosen style by creating moodboards and analysing key factors - scale, focus, display and layout. She examines nine popular styles: Boho Chic, Neo-Classical, Vintage Floral, French Style, Swedish Style, Coastal Style, Classic Country, Modern Retro and Rough Luxe. Discover, then, the key techniques you'll need to recreate these styles in your own home: colour theory (Why do some colours work so well together? Why can the same colour look dramatically different in different rooms?), using storytelling with pictures and collected treasures, style fusions (combining your favourite styles) and, of course, paint techniques. With stunning photography and packed with practical advice, Annie Sloan's Room Recipes for Style and Colour will soon become your interior style bible.

The French interior evokes a way of life to aspire to, with its good food, unhurried pace and, above all, its past for which many people feel nostalgia. Developed over hundreds of years, the French look reflects all tastes, from the cultivated grandeur of the chateau to the simplicity of rural living, and can be adapted to every home. Creating the French Look is divided into four styles: ‘Chateau’, ‘Country’, ‘Provençal’ and ‘Parisian’, and each “look” is applied to living rooms, kitchens, dining rooms, bedrooms and bathrooms plus outdoor living spaces. As well as describing each overall style, focusing on colours and fabrics, Annie Sloan emphasizes the details and accents required by each one, and, aided by 25 clearly explained step-by-step projects, shows how to achieve it. Among other things, she explains how to paint and distress furniture, and describes how to cover an armoire door with embroidered voile. Whatever interior you desire, this book will guide your choices from the grand statement of the painted armoire to the finishing touch of a little posy of lavender.
