Colour is the most difficult problem facing the home decorator. Here, Tricia Guild shows how she uses colour to create or change the mood of a room. The six chapters feature different moods, highlighting the groups of colours with which they are created: "Joyful and Vivacious" - citrus and cerise; "Serene and Pure" - aqua and sea-green; "Soulful and Contemplative" - neutrals and naturals; "Dynamic and Sexy" - rich berry shades; "Relaxed and Restful" - lavenders and blues; and "Fresh and Stimulating" - turquoise and lime. Tricia explains how she creates rooms, from the first assessment of their atmosphere and dimensions, to the choice and juxtaposition of colours, materials and furniture, not forgetting details such as flowers, table settings and display. The rooms chosenare in England, France and Italy and include city and country locations both inside and out.

Tricia Guild, founder of the Designers Guild in London, is renowned for her inventive use of colour. In these days of muted creams, taupes and whites in every shade possible, her colourful inspirations are like a ray of sunshine. Whilst acknowledging there is a place for wan hues and minimalism, her adventurous spirit jumps at the chance of adding a scarlet throw, a pink cushion or turquoise curtains. "Think Pink" is not just about pink - it is about how to enliven your home - and thereby your life - with vivid splashes of colour guaranteed to lift the spirit. Fabulously illustrated with the photographs of James Merrell and text written by Elspeth Thompson, this is a colourful adventure into the mind and design thoughts of one of Britain's leading interior designers. With a wealth of ideas for a range of interiors, Tricia Guild encompasses vibrancy with sophistication to ensure a look that will suit the style of modern day living be it minimalist or opulent. - Lucy Watson
