3.0 out of 5 stars Colour Now, 13 Jun 2010
This book is not a manual as I had hoped it might be, but a collection of very individualistic colour combinations. It is somewhat dictatorial and is typical of the mentality that it is feasible (and desirable) to plan everything in a room. For me, this is not realistic as a) I cannot afford to have everything new to fit a particular colour scheme b) I actually like to have some continuity in my life and combine items I already have!

However, having sounded a bit critical, the book does give interesting information about the way colours work and the pages at the back are useful although you have to be willing to only use the Fired Earth palatte (it does give a way of finding those colours produced by other manufacturers. Woe betide anyone naff enough to want to use a bright, artificial colour!
