Basil Ionides's influential book on the use of colour in interiors. Ionides was an Art Deco architect and interior decorator and contributed to the Savoy Theatre and Claridges. Each chapter in Colour and Interior Decoration focuses on a single colour. Ionides gives complete decorative schemes based on the colour and prescribes complementary shades for walls, woodwork, ceiling, floor, curtains, covers, cushions and ornaments. A handbook that is still relevant today.
