The ultimate sourcebook of decorative ideas for colourful living

This popular book in the bestselling ‘Way We Live’ series – a visually thrilling exploration of the way people around the world live with colour – is now available in an elegant compact edition.

The book showcases Gilles de Chabaneix’s eye for the telling use of colour in interiors in a multitude of places and cultures, from startling coastal blues to the subtle monochromes of minimalist urban styles, from the sumptuous and grand reds and purples of palatial dwellings to the sunlit yellows of country life.

Every opportunity to make cross-cultural comparisons and connections is taken within this book to provide a truly international vision of the ways in which lifestyles are reflected in colour.

Stafford Cliff was formerly Creative Director of the Conran Design Group in London. He is the author of seven titles in The Way We Live series, all published by Thames & Hudson.
Gilles de Chabaneix was one of France's most prominent photographers of design and lifestyle for many years; his work appeared in all the leading style magazines, including Elle Décoration and Marie-Claire.
