Spectrum: Heritage Patterns & Colours
Ever wonder why you feel warm and fuzzy in your granny's living room even when its baltic out and her heating hasn't functioned properly since 1989? Chances are it has something to do with the wallpaper/carpet combo. Spectrum will reveal all the secrets as to how a carefully selected interior design palette can be used to evoke moods and emotions in its inhabitants. Designers and creative people often look to history for reference, knowledge and inspiration. The way colours and patterns have been used in the past will always have an impact on how they are perceived today. Spectrum: Heritage Patterns and Colours is an incredible resource for designers, both amateur and professional. It offers a fascinating visual analysis of the colour palettes used in furnishing fabrics and wallpapers from the 15th century to the present day. Snapshots from the V&A's collection have been carefully selected in order to show how the human race uses both colour and texture to deliver and enhance the messages we to send to each other. Featuring double page spreads of each hand picked wallpaper and fabric Spectrum is the perfect gift for the interior, graphic or otherwise designer in your life. The colours are also labelled with its CMYK number, a super handy reference for designers. The grid gives a clear understanding of the ways colours have been expertly combined at different periods to create the beautiful designs we admire and emulate today.
