With almost 200,000 copies sold, The Color Book has proven itself the must-have color manual for the home decorator. Now completely revised and updated, and featuring all-new colors in fresh and contemporary palettes, this new edition invigorates the best-selling classic. Professional designers and decorators know what effect a change in color will have, but for many of us, choosing paint still feels like a bit of a gamble. We may love that deep rose color on the paint chip, but what will it actually look like on the wall, against oak flooring and a cream ceiling? With The New Color Book, anyone can instantly see what colors will work, and what colors won't. Ninety-six pages, each cut horizontally into three sections -- floor, walls, and ceiling -- can be flipped separately to instantly mix-and-match a vast array of colors. Covering the bathroom, bedroom, living room, and kitchen, The New Color Book visually demonstrates 45,000 different color combinations, offering near endless inspiration and tangible assistance in selecting the perfect color scheme for every room. The accompanying text presents an accessible guide to choosing and mixing colors, while a color key and practical directory offer additional resources. Decorators will like using the unique mix-and-match method to help clients make smart choices, while the do-it-yourself crowd can use it to identify the best color combinations for every room, without resorting to the expense and frustration of trial and error.
