Summer Thornton on decorating with color: a masterclass

If you weren’t familiar with designer Summer Thornton, there’s a quote sprawled across a page in her new book, ‘Wonderland: Adventures in Decorating’, that would tell you all you need to know about her style. It reads: ‘Beige is for beginners.’ Indeed, Thornton is a wizard when it comes to decorating with color, and there’s not a page in the book that isn’t splashed with it. 

‘I do not believe there is such a thing as too much color. I think color should be incorporated into your home in a way that makes you feel good,’ Thornton tells us. ‘I am an all-or-nothing kind of person so I don’t believe in dipping my toe into color.  If I use color, I layer it up and pile it on. I do not believe in balancing it with neutrals.’
