As human representation is forbidden in Islamic religious monuments, designers employed mosaics, stucco, brickwork and ceramics, and the vigorous use of brilliant colour to reach unparalleled heights of expression. It is this ornamental dimension of Islamic architecture that is explored in this magnificent volume. Rather than limiting itself to an exclusively historical or chronological perspective, Ornament and Decoration in Islamic Architecture presents four successive approaches to its subject. The first part offers an overview of Islamic architecture, discussing the great diversity it contains.

Описание: Paint and wallpaper are usually the least expensive element in any interior design yet also the most difficult to get right. This book simplifies the process, using Oliver’s simple, straightforward but extremely stylish approach to color and light. David Oliver’s use of color in interior design has brought him both great acclaim and a star-studded roster of private clients. This is his first book, and it functions as a master class in paint, paper, and light. He shows what works and why by demonstrating how the combined influences of light and pigment affect the changing quality of color in a room. In his designs, Oliver seeks to recreate the unique vitality and depth of color found in fine art pigments by using the finest ingredients and technology available today. The book also explores his tonal color-by-number system for ceilings, cornices, walls, and woodwork, creating a harmonious balance of light and color by accentuating various interior elements in a room. It combines an array of practical ideas and planning advice with actual case studies making it an inspirational reconsideration of color for anyone interested in interior design.
