In the Mood for Colour

Perfect palettes for creative interiors

Bring the transformative power of color into your life with the help of Hans Blomquist, whose inspiring interiors will enable you to find the right colors for your home

Color is powerful—it can change our moods or raise our spirits. It can be positively life-enhancing, yet so many of us struggle to choose the right shades for our homes. In the Mood for Colour reveals celebrated interior stylist Hans Blomquist's passion for color and the way in which it can affect our emotions. Color can soothe, enchant, or excite. And, as Hans demonstrates, it has the ability to render rooms cool and calming, dynamic and stimulating, or moody and intriguing. As ever, Hans draws his inspiration from the natural world, exploring shades from the dazzling white of newly fallen snow to the fiery crimson heart of an unfurled poppy and the inky canopy of the midnight sky. Divided into five sections—Dark, Pale, Natural, Soft and Bold—In the Mood for Colour will make you see color in a completely different light.
