What transforms a room from monotone to magical? Color! So, if you're nervous about splashing that white with bright, this conveniently portable primer based on House Beautiful 's most popular column will help. With special insider advice from top designers, plus a directory of actual paint swatches , this book is the most comprehensive and appealing color resource available today. All the colors are searchable by shade and by room, and every paint is accompanied by its manufacturer, name, and number, so you can match what you want right from the book. The guide's unique format makes everything easy.
Noted designers with long and distinguished careers offer suggestions for every room and mood. They provide advice on which shades to start with and which to experiment with, the classic palettes they keep coming back to, and how the right colors can simply make us feel good. Gorgeous room shots--such as Paula Perlini's delphinium blue bedroom and Amanda Keyser's merlot red walls--are accompanied by the exact brands of paint and their swatches, so you can examine the colors closely. An invaluable guide to color, this book will help you pick the right paints that will add beauty and style to your home.
