Publisher Comments:

For a fresh approach to color in the home, look no further than Can't Fail Color Schemes. This book allows readers to coordinate paint colors, textures, and accessories while factoring in such things as light effects and psychology of color. Heavy on photographical examples of working schemes and light on text, Can't Fail Color Schemes acts as a workbook readers can take along to home centers and paint stores. Unlike so many other color scheme books, it even includes an ample section on exterior color. With Can't Fail Color Schemes, readers can give every room in their home a brand new look.

Synopsis:

Want to give your home a brand new look, but are unsure of how to coordinate the right colors to make it work? Well now there is a fresh new way of seeing color in this hard-hitting color design book. Cant Fail Color Schemes features over 300 color photographs and more than 200 pages of working color schemes. Highlighted are important factors such as coordinating paint colors, textures, lighting effects and the psychology behind color.

Cant Fail Color Schemes comes as a small spiral-bound book that is convenient to carry around and can be used as a color reference to be taken along when shopping for paint or furnishings. Swatches on the sides of the pages make it easy for color comparisons and compatibility. This workbook comes complete with concise text, a glossary, an index for quick reference, along with a comprehensive color guide containing a full spectrum of color for both interior and exterior designs. This impressive body of work provides valuable insight on color such as descriptions of complimentary colors, where they might work best, and what it is that makes them work together. Learn about hues and tones, accented colors, and much more with this handy guide to color.

Synopsis:

A take-it-with-you visual guide to selecting color. See how color alone can change the mood and style of a room or an entire house, inside and out. Over 300 photographs and more than 200 pages of coordinated color schemes make it easy to choose colors for creating an entirely new scheme or just accent colors for accessories.

Synopsis:

This book shows readers how to coordinate paint colors, textures, and accessories while factoring in such things as light effects and psychology of color. Illustrated.
