Love Colour

Inspiring colour expertise

As the founder of Luminary, Anna Starmer defines colour for the future of retailers, designers and brands – from Jaeger and Boden to Anthropologie and John Lewis. We were commissioned by Leaping Hare Press, an imprint of Quarto Publishing, to design ‘Love Colour’, a new book by this globally renowned colour expert.

Design

Getting creative with colour combinations

The book design features a combination of home, travel and still life photography, helping to spark interior design inspiration and highlight opportunities to work with light, tone and colour. Colour swatches sit alongside the photography, enabling readers to take inspiration from the accessible and practical palettes, and create their own colour combinations.

Using colour to organise

Each chapter is focused on different colours, and we created bold colourful opening pages featuring quotes and insights about the specific tones. To add pace and create breathing space, we matched it with impactful large-scale imagery.

Ensuring practicality and usefulness

We also designed a removable colour swatch booklet containing all the book’s swatches, enabling readers to take it with them as a colour reference when choosing and shopping for their interior colours.
