Synopsis

Fearless Colour Gardens The Creative Gardener's Guide to Jumping Off the Colour Wheel by Keeyla Meadows

Renowned garden artist Keeyla Meadows sees the world in strong, saturated shades. Fearless Color Gardens brings this unique vision to life by showing how to use wild, uninhibited color to connect indoor and outdoor spaces and turn a garden into a work of art. Learn: how to pick colors that work together; how to coordinate the colors of walls, benches, containers, and garden art; how to organize garden spaces through the use of color; and, how to translate personal color preferences into tangible form in the garden. Fearless Color Gardens also features a new way of looking at color with 'Keeyla's Color Triangle'; easy-to use tips on growing edibles in color themed gardens; and, Keeyla's favorite plants for specific colors. In the end, readers will want to reinvent the staid rules of the color wheel and turn their color preferences into intoxicatingly vibrant garden expressions.

Reviews

If you're shy about using color, this is the book for you, because Meadows hasn't met a shade, tone, or hue she couldn't put to clever use. -- Valerie Easton Seattle Times 20091011 Reads like a colorist's memoir, complete with a muse named Emerald. Strong on fantasy, it's also a useful workbook for garden owners who need a nudge toward the more vibrant end of the color spectrum. -- Debra Prinzing Los Angeles Times 20091216 The book jacket's eye-popping colors are just a prelude to the lush photos that lie within. -- Susan Pollack Detroit Free Press 20091218 Meadows is a cheerleader for gardens full of color, and of gardeners unafraid to push their boundaries. -- Jodi Delong Bloomingwriter Blog 20100107
