Nature, art, a favorite collection—each holds unexpected color combinations that can be beautifully incorporated into the home. Designer Susan Hable shows how to discover color in the everyday, create dynamic palettes, and translate them into stunning interior spaces. Home decorators will learn how a cheerful bedroom can be constructed from the natural hues of autumn leaves, or how a burst of bright confetti can inspire a candy-colored tiled bath. Brimming with luscious photography, A Colorful Home reveals how to open our eyes to the colors around us and bring them to life in rooms composed with meaning.

Media Reviews

“I have been waiting years for a design book this exciting. Every single page is full of impeccably curated color inspiration and practical information to help you make each color palette work for your home. I love the way Susan uses nature as the ulti­mate jumping-off point and resource-I can’t wait to try some of these ideas in my own house.” —Grace Bonney, Founder of Design*Sponge

“I love Susan’s sensibility. This book captures every­thing she’s about: the modern and the rustic, the bold and the subdued. My favorite moments in the book were discovering her personal inspiration for color and design—the leaves, thorns, arrowheads, maps, salt, and butterflies.” —Andy Spade, Founder of Partners & Spade

“Susan Hable is the most colorful person I know. The way she sees the world—in amazing hues inspired by the often overlooked or unexpected—has translated into incredible interiors. This book offers page after page of incredible color and texture that will inspire even the most committed color-phobes to seriously consider embracing pink.” —Rima Suqi, Columnist, New York Times Home Section
