This review is from: The Beginner's Guide to Colour Psychology (Paperback)
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.
