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, Neoclassical, 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, this will soon become your interior style bible.
