Tricia Guild Pattern: New book to release in September!
I’m so excited that Tricia Guild, the queen of color, is releasing another book, Tricia Guild Pattern: Using Pattern to Create Sophisticated, Show-stopping Interiors, on September 26th. I couldn’t be happier, she’s somewhat of a design celeb to me, a designer that I’d love to meet and chat with for hours because I can’t imagine walking away from her feeling anything less than completely honored and thoroughly inspired.

In design school, we were taught color theory via the color wheel (of course), Pantone, the Colar-aid system, painting with acrylics until our fingers fell off, and by constantly studying everything we could about Tricia Guild, the color maven behind the Designer’s Guild in London. Of course, we also had to explore the history of color, which I found fascinating, as well as the use of color throughout the ages and by culture, as well as how color affects mood in a space. If you’re a designer, you well know that color theory is one of the most fascinating courses that you may ever take – for me, it stood out as the foundation to everything else that I was taught then, and what I continue to learn in school and as a practicing design consultant.

I don’t even have to crack open Tricia Guild Pattern to know that I’ll love it. I imagine it to be a page turning color fest. Pre-order your copy here at Amazon for only $25.

    Thanks for the heads-up about Tricia Guild’s new book. I’ll thrilled!

    Back in the early 90s I happened across one of her books and have never looked back. I thought “Here is someone who isn’t afraid to use colour. I’m not the only one who craves bright contrasting colours!” Back in those days we weren’t seeing much of that.

    Thanks for all you do to keep us informed :)

    i can’t believe you met tricia guild, bowie style! that must have been something else, especially for you, a lover of color.

    i know – the upcoming book, i’m assuming, will be terrific. we need a few new design books focusing on color lately. everything i see is minimalist and clean. i’m looking forward to seeing some bold colors again.
