I have read many books on colour by various authors. This is undoubtedly the best in my opinion.
Angela Wright is nothing less than brilliant in her understanding of colour and her skill in using it as well as her ability to pass her knowledge on to the reader.
If you love colour and are interested in the unconscious effects of colour then this book is for you.
I was originally interested only in my personal pallette ie which colours suited me to enhance my personal colouring (they turn out to be autumn colours).
However, the book covers colour in nature as well as colour at home, at work and in business.
I find it totally fascinating from start to finish and have read and re-read it and continue to dip into it whenever I have a colour query to be answered.
If you want to know the most supportive colour to use when you are bereaved (not black) or which colour to use for meditation or why NOT to use yellow in a certain room in the house then this book is for you.
You will love it.

I always had problem with sleepness nights, until I've read this book. I found out that I was a 'winter' charater, my previouse bed rooms has too much yellow in it, it made me hyperactive and stressed during the night. I slept painlessly for the first time after change the scheme to white and silver. I nerver looked back!

This is a really facinating read and I would recomend it to anyone interested in how the colours around them affects how they feel in their life. It's written in a very down to earth practical way, and is very much rooted in action and practical aplication. I have a few issues with some of the things she says, for example insisting that pink as a colour for the "feminine" is psychological rather than cultural, and at one point she makes a comment about women who cut their hair short "not allowing their true nature to show", a comment which I think shows more about her own issues and predjuces than those of the people she's talking about.

Have you ever wondered why you have a favorite colour, or why an advertsing campaign has effected you so much? Have you ever walked into an office and wanted to work there or buy their products? What about some of your friends homes - why do you just relax and chat away in some while always feeling its time to go in others....
Angela Wright takes us through both the theory and practical application like a breeze. Whether a novice or an expert you won't regret picking this one up.
Buy it....enough said!

This book is fascinating but not a particularly easy read. I've read it through three times now and each time I feel that I am understanding more. The underlying message of the book is that the important thing in your colour choices is YOU, not fashion or what other people think. A "summer linked" person wearing clothes from the "winter-linked" palette, for example, is like a tiger pretending to be a deer. The theory behind the book - still open to debate - is that we all have one palette that is the most "supportive" to us psychologically, and when you are in tune with your true self you will find it easier to select your true colours. Trouble for many of us is that we are so influenced by fashion and style considerations that we are not necessarily confident or even able to work out what our true palette is. It's a challenging book in many ways, but definitely rewarding. I'm off to book a colour consultation and may be throwing out quite a bit of my wardrobe.

I found this a really interesting read but I couldn't see evidence of the author's pyschological qualifications so I'm not sure how valid the conclusions were. Work for some large companies was discussed so their experience is impressive at least. That aside, I found it fun to read about people's different associations with colour. The questionnaire made me an 'Autumn' which coincided with a professional colour analysis I had done recently. It also happens to be my favourite season so maybe there is something in it!
