An inspirational visual journey along the color spectrum, brought to life via the best contemporary residential interior design

Tap into the growing trend for injecting color  into home décor with this elegant, thoughtful selection of interiors in every shade and hue. Organised by color – from the purest white to the deepest black, from the hottest pinks, oranges, and reds, to the coolest greens and tranquil blues in between – Living in Color explores and celebrates the current trend for vivid accents and vibrant transformations of our domestic spaces, whatever their size and wherever their location.
