Grand Designs is back for a new series on Channel 4 at 9pm tonight.  It's one of my favourite programmes so I'll be there with glass of wine in hand.  Can you believe the show has been running for almost 10 years? 

The charming presenter, Kevin McCloud, used to run a lighting company.  Unfortunately the popular book he wrote on lighting back in 1995, Kevin McCloud's Lighting Book, is now out of print but is still available in some libraries and via Amazon's used booksellers.

Lighting Book

His more recent book published in 2007, Choosing Colours, is a visual feast and guides you through the colours to choose for your own home.  He has a website that works in conjunction with the book Choosing-Paint.com
