Publisher Comments:

Selecting a paint color, whether for a homes exterior or the bedroom walls, can feel like a perilous venture. For good reason. Like no other aspect of our environment, color has the power to profoundly affect our feeling of well-being. And taste in color is an extremely personal matter: to choose a color—a saturated red, an understated ochre, a sizzling-hot pink—is to say something revealing about oneself. Its no wonder that committing to a color demands an act of bravery.

With Color at Home, the Echo Design Groups Meg and Steven Roberts aim to inspire and encourage you to jump into the exhilarating world of color. Illustrated with more than 150 images of color-infused homes across the country, the book will bolster your courage as you develop a color vision for your own home.

Color at Home insightfully explores the emotional territory mapped by each hue—aquas refreshing oasis; oranges warm radiance; the stark, urbane chic of black and white—while providing essential practical advice on topics such as coordinating colors with a homes architectural style or historical period. The innovative color grids included in the book help you define your preferred palette.

Book News Annotation:

Two interior designers, with the help of photographer Eric Laignel, display the rewards of carefully--and boldly--chosen paint colors for the home, both inside and out. Approximately 200 full page plates show off red, orange, yellow, green, aqua, blue, purple, pink, neutrals, and black and white themes at their best, giving a nod to the emotions evoked by each shade. Oversize: 10x10.5". Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
