In White Rooms, best-selling author Karen McCartney and design expert David Harrison, working with internationally renowned photographer Richard Powers, present a comprehensive guide to using white in the home. From the architect-designed to the appealingly rustic, white is seen in its multitude of shades, combinations and possibilities. The book visits individual homes from Sao Paulo to the South of France, all with diverse decorating philosophies but each showing, in depth, the way in which white acts as the foundation of their style. As well, chapters devoted to every room in the house, and outdoor areas, illustrate the many ways in which white can be used effectively. A 'working with white' section at the back of the book offers tips, including the most suitable types of paint to use, and how best to deal with large spaces. 'Why has it taken so long to have a book that holds your hand around the trickiest of colours, that sells itself as one of the easiest? A love letter dedicated to the beauty of blanc and its persuasive powers; whether you like your white as a highly motivated single source or a deliberate slice, this is the ultimate handbook.' Megan Morton, stylist
