'What a wonderful book! Lucy is thoroughly inspiring and has that enviable gift of being able to explain her ideas brilliantly to people who are not as confident as her at design and colour. Lucy has such a natural sense of style and she uses colour in a way that creates such harmonious interiors. This book makes interior design accessible to the uninitiated.' Annie Sloan
