What a brilliant book. I had decided roughly what colours to decorate my bedroom but wasn't sure if they would look okay together and I needed another colour to compliment what I had chosen. I order a couple of other books which were absolutely useless - but this book was fantastic. It lays out different colour backgrounds and what will go with them. It was perfect for my bedroom decision and I know I'll be able to use it in every other room in my home. If your not 100% sure if what you want is right this book is perfect for you.

Although i have an eye for colour this book really helped me in selecting the accent colours and highlight colours to create the finished look. I am delighted with the results and have already transformed my living space. By helping pinpoint what colours I needed for cushions and paintings my room looks like it has been created by a designer. On to the dining room next!! I recommend this book for eveyone as it gaurentees results thru the comprehensive choice of colour schemes and what a joy to be able to shop with total confidence. The best interiors book (and i have many) that I have ever bought

It is a pity that A Craig didn't expand on why he/she didn't like this book as I might then have avoided wasting my money. This is a really uninspiring book. There are very few photos of rooms. Most of the pages are just made up of a sample background colour swatch (not terribly well-rendered) with a few additional colour blobs that are supposed to work together. Some of the combinations are a little weird but this may simply be that the colours haven't always come out right in the printing process.

It looks at first as if these colour blobs are paint swatches but in fact they aren't - they are meant to allude to fabric & even wallpaper. I have just opened a page at random (page 241). The narrative goes as follows: "As the resurgence of wallpaper continues, the focus of this scheme is the wallpaper itself." You might think therefore that a wallpaper swatch would be included - but no. Further down the page there is a comment that the wallpaper should combine two specific colours included on the page. Frankly in a book which describes itself as "The Home Colours Sourcebook" I don't think it is unreasonable to think that the author might have actually done a bit of sourcing. Opening again at random (this time page 177), there is a brown background plus four other colours, including an apricot & a teal blue - with the narrative saying "...for the window dressing, pick out a striped fabric in apricot cream (5) with a narrow amazon blue (4) stripe running through it". Again, why not show an example of such a fabric rather than a couple of blobs of colour? This I think sums up the problem with the book.

I would thoroughly recommend this book to anyone interested in interior design, even if you're not, it's an ideal book to have on the coffee table to flick through when you need inspiration for your decor.
