Author: Mota, Carlos
In this color-saturated volume, creative consultant Carlos Mota celebrates the manifestations of beauty, creativity, and individuality all over the world. Beige is Not a Color is the antithesis of bland and as aspirational as it is inspirational. The perfect addition to your home décor library.

Bland is anathema to Carlos Mota. As he travels the world—from Lisbon to Tangier, India to Santo Domingo, New York to Paris—producing feature stories and ad campaigns for major companies and brands including Neiman Marcus, Saks, Bloomingdale’s, Estée Lauder, and Max Mara, Nautica and Pottery Barn, he exults in every spark of originality and creativity he sees. Fortunately for us, he not only documents his sightings with his camera but also collects images by a Who’s Who of interiors and architectural photographers.

In this volume, peppered with quotes about color and beauty by a host of designers, he has culled some 280 of his favorite images, all wholly different but all sharing one quality: the beauty of color, both literally and figuratively. There are interiors, table settings, fabric swatches, tiles, floral arrangements, sculptures, architectural ornamentation—whatever captures his discriminating eye.
