In this vibrant, lush home-decor lookbook and manual from the author of LIVING WITH PATTERN, textile designer Rebecca Atwood explains how to create a color palette, teaching readers to find what resonates with their personal aesthetic and bring the magic of color into their homes.

In her first book, Living with Pattern, textile designer Rebecca Atwood demystified how to conceptualize and feature pattern in your home designs. Now in Living with Color, Atwood delivers another definitive style guidebook that is both an aspirational design showcase and a highly readable, attainable how-to. She starts with the basics, such as complementary colors, the color wheel, and choosing your personal palette, then explains how to pair groups of colors room by room, showing all aspects of color design from walls to throw pillows. The book is filled with stunning photography of real homes around the country that beautifully display color in layers, patterns, and use.

MAJOR PLATFORM AND REACH: Launched in 2013, Rebecca Atwood Designs is recognized for its high-end design and quality. Since her first book, Living with Pattern, Rebecca and her brand have grown hugely popular with triple the Instagram followers (85K), and have been covered in the New York Times, Elle Décor, Vogue, InStyle, The Wall Street Journal, House Beautiful, Design*Sponge, Remodelista, Domino, and more. Her product line has expanded to include bedding and she has collaborated with the trendy lounge and sleepwear brand, Lake Pajamas. Her designs and products have previously been carried at chic, independent boutiques and larger stores such as Anthropologie and Bergdorf Goodman, and now exclusively at Atwood’s very own, newly opened NYC store, Rebecca Atwood Designs.

HOME DESIGN HOW-TO: Atwood gives great tips and clear guidance on how to relate to and find your own personal color palette, making Living with Color not only a design book but also a lasting, fun personal journey. On trend with self-help and mindfulness, this beautiful design guide asks readers to unplug, dust-off their cameras, break out a sketch pad, or grab a box of crayons. Readers will be inspired to get in touch with their creative side as they follow Atwood’s advice to capture things in nature, everyday life, and curated spaces (think art galleries) that speak to them.

A COVETABLE OBJECT: A book about creating a beautiful home has to be beautiful itself. This eye-popping dyed text block adds its own color accent to any room, and the stylish photography draws readers in with the lush, cozy appeal of beautifully designed homes. At 8 x 10, this unjacketed hardcover will not only look great on display but is also the must-have interiors book for both perusing and using.
