BOOK: Spectrum: Heritage Patterns and Colours
Spectrum: Heritage Patterns and Colours
By Victoria and Albert Museum with introduction by Ros Byam Shaw
This highly original book analyses the palettes that have been used by designers in the creation of furnishing fabrics and wallpapers from the 15th century to the present. The colours used in each pattern are presented to give a clear understanding of hues that have been expertly combined at different periods to create the designs we continue to admire and emulate.
Spectrum opens with a brief introduction by interior design expert Ros Byam Shaw, exploring the history of colour as used in interiors. Unique to the book are colour grids shown beside each pattern in which the colours in the original piece are shown in proportion to their use, and with their CMYK references to enable designers to replicate these colours in their own work.
