BOOK REVIEW – Anna Spiro

Absolutely Beautiful Things by Anna Spiro,

published by Conran Octopus, £25 

Book Jacket

From the first look at the cover you know that this book is going to be about colour in interior decoration and this Brisbane-based designer uses it with competence and flair. She says ‘I believe in the concept of the more you layer the better. I’m a maximalist not a minimalist’.  Anna Spiro very cleverly mixes art, furniture and objects from all periods and price ranges together to create a very liveable space. While colour is key, with often a theme colour to a room, thy are set against a backdrop of white walls which helps create rooms that sing with life and joy.  It is a delight of a book full of practical suggestions for the furnishing and decorating of your home.
