“The most joyful, inspirational interiors, with a fascinating personal story from the master of color himself! Matthew shows us how to live life bright!”—Sienna Miller, actress 

The first interior decorating and lifestyle book from former fashion designer Matthew Williamson, who has been designing with bold, contrasting color for almost three decades, is an invitation to find your own style and embrace color and pattern to live bright.

Think beige, grey, and white are the only neutrals? Think again. As a lifelong fan of rich jewel tones, fashion designer turned interiors expert Matthew Williamson makes the case for living cocooned in color. Pink can be subtle, warming, and very livable; while used sparingly, fiery red can get you going. Let Williamson help you find your style DNA, and you'll soon be getting out the paintbrush and turning bland corners of your home into a technicolor paradise.

Packed with inspirational images of interior decorating projects, including Williamson's own homes in London and Mallorca, as well as visual references that will transport you to places close to his heart, Living Bright is the hardworking handbook to take on your journey to colorful living. 

No space is too small and no project too big. Just follow Williamson's simple instructions, work out which shades speak to you, and discover a lifetime of kaleidoscopic color that awaits. Now is the time to banish boring and learn to live bright with joyful interiors that will lift your mood without punishing your bank balance. Whether serene soft pink or lively mustard yellow, earthy olive green or rich regal purple, there's a color palette that will work for everyone and every home.

PRACTICAL INTERIOR DÉCOR GUIDE: Packed with useful tips to help hone your taste and build your confidence, Living Bright is a hands-on tool for boldly decorating any space, large or small.

REFRESHING APPROACH TO HOME DECORATING: A timely post-pandemic pick-me-up, this book makes the case for banishing beige in favor of joyful interiors that will lift your mood.
