From the moment when young Christopher Blackburn is prevailed upon to attend a seance at The Seekers' Temple a series of seemingly inexplicable and increasingly terrifying experiences gradually convinces him that he has been singled out by some unknown power which is bent on his destruction. But why? And what can he have which has attracted the attention of the sinister Guardians? In a desperate hunt for the answers to these questions Christoper learns for himself the old truth that no man is an island; the new one that it is possible to be in two times at the same place; and the sombre one that some of us are more responsible to posterity than we care to admit!

A fascinating journey through 400 years of paint and colour from Farrow & Ball, longtime masters of professional paint-making, Paint and Colour in Decoration celebrates the work of some of the greatest names in interior design and reveals the techniques and materials they pioneered. Paint explores the paint-making process and the varying effects produced by different formulations, finishes, and painting methods, and examines the ways by which these evolved. Through a wealth of illustrations and indepth analysis, the book provides a history of colour in painted decoration, revealing how the generally muted colours of the 17th and early 18th centuries gave way to the lighter, brighter palette of the late 18th century, the strong intense shades of the Regency period, the rich polychrome of the Victorian era, and the unprecedented diversity and eclecticism of the twentieth century, culminating in the explosion of interest in historic or traditional colours today. A source of inspiration for professional and amateur decorators and interior designers alike, Paint contains a wealth of ideas and practical.

If you dream of decorating (or redecorating) your home but have no idea where to begin, this decorating workshop-in-a-book decodes an interior designer's thought process on creating a stylish home with vision and flow. The secret to those gorgeous interiors in the magazines lies not in the things that fill the rooms, but in the "decorating story" or point of view that the designer has applied to the space. With How to Decorate, learn how to create your own design concept and implement it with color, furniture, fabrics, lighting, accessorizing, and styling. This book also helps solve a decorator’s biggest challenges, from working around a home's existing architecture and organizing a space, to mixing patterns and editing collections. Best of all, 150 color photographs and charming watercolor illustrations--and even a bookplate for personalizing this guide--provide inspiration that makes this book as useful as it is beautiful. Among the insider tips is information on: -Finding a dedicated space where you can organize paint samples, fabric swatches, and magazine clippings -Choosing a sofa wisely -Determining appropriate wall finishes and textures -Identifying what fabrics are right for you -Styling your decor to reinvigorate your space -Plus, the best suppliers for rugs, linens, accessories, and more "Interior design should be about telling a personal story, and Shannon Fricke has nailed it on the head with How to Decorate. Her genius tips ring true for novice and professional decorators alike, and her decorating workshop-in-a-book organization helps simplify what can be a very intimidating process. This book will empower and motivate you to tell your personal story through your home decor. Bravo, Shannon!" --Jenny Komenda, designer and founder of Little Green Notebook "How to Decorate throws out stuffy notions of doing things the 'right' way and instead invites us to imagine our homes as playgrounds for authentic self-expression. Fricke promotes the idea of decorating at its best, as a means of creating surroundings that reflect who we really are and what we love . . . while having a blast in the process!" --Camille Styles, event designer and editor of CamilleStyles.com "Shannon strikes the elusive balance between visual inspiration and practicable action. This is a book you'll both display and put to constant use." --Anne Sage, blogger and founder of The City Sage

There's no doubt about it, grey is the shade of the moment. Restaurants, stores, and homes are covered in it. There's not a home improvement show that doesn't use it. And forget 50 shades...in fact the human eye can detect more than 500. As can the average paint color chart. “Everyone wants to paint their houses grey at the moment,” says Karen Haller, a color expert who advises clients on branding and color psychology. “But it's one of the most difficult colours to get right.” Get it wrong and a room will be cold and dark, possibly even energy-sapping. Get it right, however, and your home will look fresh, sophisticated, and modern. So how do we go about choosing the perfect hue? In 'Shades of Grey' Kate Watson-Smyth will help you find exactly the right shade for your space. Full of expert advice and essential information and spiced with a generous dash of humor, this book will guide you through the minefield that is choosing the perfect shade of gray paint.

Decorating Abigail Ahern style is about creating spaces that make you happy - not just buying the latest 'it' chair. According to the internationally renowned interior designer, the most successful homes always have an element of the unexpected. Good taste is wonderful, but without a touch of eccentricity - some tension between spontaneity and rigour, refinement and rebellion - beautifully co-ordinated rooms can leave you cold. Proving that style has nothing to do with money and everything to do with confidence, Abigail goes back to basics to help you determine your own style, then demonstrates how to take interiors to the next level by mixing and layering different styles and eras; injecting intrigue into a room with some maximalist lighting or a decorative rug; playing around with scale, colour and texture to create an enchanting, idiosyncratic vibe. Packed with original ideas, beautiful photography, speedy updates and easy DIY projects - that transform affordable furniture and accessories into something you'd see in a designer showroom - this hip, hands-on guide offers all the tips, tricks and inspiration you need to create a stylish home. For styleconscious people on a budget, interior design just got fun . . .

A PBS Great American Read Top 100 Pick Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize-winning masterwork of honor and injustice in the deep South—and the heroism of one man in the face of blind and violent hatred One of the best-loved stories of all time, To Kill a Mockingbird has been translated into more than forty languages, sold more than forty million copies worldwide, served as the basis for an enormously popular motion picture, and was voted one of the best novels of the twentieth century by librarians across the country. A gripping, heart-wrenching, and wholly remarkable tale of coming-of-age in a South poisoned by virulent prejudice, it views a world of great beauty and savage inequities through the eyes of a young girl, as her father—a crusading local lawyer—risks everything to defend a black man unjustly accused of a terrible crime.
