About the author

William Yeoward has a worldwide reputation for his trademark table settings and stunning ranges of tableware and collections for the home. He has shops in London and New York and lectures on design throughout the United States, and his work is featured regularly in magazines such as Town and Country and Elle Décor (for whom he is a contributing editor). His previous books include William Yeoward on Entertaining, The Perfect Host and William Yeoward At Home. The author is based between London and Gloucestershire.

In his most personal book to date, William Yeoward reveals his passion for color, his inspirations and the 'stories' behind his unique use of color as he takes you on a journey through a dazzling array of beautiful homes.

Known for his chic and stylish color combinations, William Yeoward reveals his color secrets, starting with the classic combination of blue and white—there are cobalt silk sofas, sapphire armchairs, aquamarine patterned ceramics, and indigo plush pillows, all combined to evoke a sense of luxury, in William's trademark style. The unique color stories in the book include red, white, and blue in a villa in France, a comfortable coastal retreat with hints of pink, taking you through to lavender and amethyst in the country and the city, soft grey studies in living rooms and table settings, a blazing ochre red contemporary cottage, an orange rustic barn dinner, and a red and steel outdoor kitchen. This is William’s fourth book and is the first one to focus on his passion for color and the sumptuous interiors that can be created by focusing on details and by layering opulent textures, prints, and proportions.
