This review is from: 1/12TH SCALE FOUR POSTER BED (Toy)
I was unfortunate enough to send for this bed on the basis of the picture. First to note that it isn't a toy. It didn't even stand up to the post. Although the bed needed to be reassembled as it had come apart in transit the bed had broken. The headboard is cut very crudely. The structure itn't robust ehough to strip and redress with better bedding so no real way to improve look at all. Keep searching; this isn't the bed your looking for. I sent mine back.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just to let you know the website isn'tavailable, 23 Aug. 2009
This review is from: Choosing Colours (Paperback)
I bought this along with Colour Now and love them both for different reasons. I think when this was first published one could link directly to a paint website to allow you to find the paints. this isn't available so makes the search a little harder. If you want an easier search Colour Now is based only on a Fired Earth colour card.

4.0 out of 5 stars Design By Numbers, 23 Aug. 2009
This book relates Kevin's created colour palettes to paints supplied by Fired Earth (you don't need to only use these paints). You can use this book simply to search the pages for a colour scheme that you want to use in your home. It will stop the two colour scheme often seen - cream/browm or black/white if, like me, you tend to fall into this category. What it doesn't help with is the proportion of these colours in the room although the pictures give an idea. He does say finding textiles for the room first then matching paint is still the easiest way to acheive a coherent scheme. An idea is to pile everything you have for a room then go through the book to find a matching palette. You don't have to use all the colours in a scheme. If this is all you want to do I don't think you need his other book.
