Discover the endless joys of the country kitchen, with recipes that stand the test of time as well as helpful technique sections and information on the ingredients and equipment you’ll need. An artisan food revival has taken place in recent years, making country kitchen skills a celebrated part of everyday life.

Perfect Palettes


Everybody has their own unique sense of colour, derived from all sorts of sources, from favourite shades of childhood, to which colour of clothes suits an individual and what colours make them feel good in a living room. Often responses to the world around us are formed from perceived colours - the joy of a holiday seascape, the fascinating tonal variations of a forest in Autumn or a perfect plate of complementary tomato and basil salad. These combinations can sometimes be transposed to rooms with great effect, others need toning down to achieve a similarly pleasing emotional response. In Perfect Palettes, the world renowned author and interiors expert Stephanie Hoppen takes inspiration from nature, landscape, food and art to create colour combinations and provides detailed explanations on why they work and how to implement them. Key colour groupings are illustrated with real schemes and palettes for re-creating the look, making Perfect Palettes an indispensable collection of ideas and winning colour combinations for the home. About the Author Stephanie Hoppen has a successful art gallery in London that offers an eclectic selection of prints, paintings, sculpture, glass and furniture to an international clientele. Her previous books include Blue and White Living, Decorating with Style, Decorating with Pictures, The New Curtain Book, Perfect Neutrals and Perfect Palettes.
