HASH(0x8c0119e4) out of 5 stars Awesome and inspiring, great tips 12 Jun. 2001
By Angel Lee - Published on
The décor in this book is awesome and inspiring. There were very few room designs I didn't like. The rooms all have strong personality with a simple modern look. There are no flowery or country looks here.
The book is split into two sections. The first focuses on what colors are associated with in our lives. Objects are shown and their effects on emotions are discussed. It also explains and demonstrates the excellent and very useful 60-30-10 color rule.
The second section focuses on color functions for serenity, fantasy, healing, clarity, nurturing and spirituality. Here more full rooms are shown. I love the tips for formality, informality, local color schemes and stages of life. I also like the use of flower bouquet accents (fresh or silk) in lots of the rooms. They really add spice to the décor.
The color choice quiz in back of the book is great. It really helps you pick the best colors for any room in your home based on what personality you want it to have. If you want to truly use color to create the perfect atmosphere in any room get this book.

HASH(0x8c11c180) out of 5 stars Color Choice Quiz seperates this book from the pack 13 Dec. 2002
By Amy Henley - Published on
The photographs in this book are great. As you might imagine with a book by this title there is a bold use of color. The style is modern, but will probably stand the test of time. I like the way the book is sectioned into chapters that fit a particular mood you might want to create (e.g. colors for fantasy). Also, there are general decorating tips scattered throughout the book.
The color choice quiz. Listed from A-Z all the emotions/moods you could ask for. You choose which emotions/moods you want to promote in a room. Then, you look at the color choice key to see which color matches those emotions/moods.
After buying the book and looking at it more carefully, I realized has some of the same pictures as a book which I also own titled Color Healing Home by Katherine Sorrell. For example, check out pg. 27 of Color Healing and pg.63 of Color Therapy.
How to differentiate between the two: Color Therapy focuses more on how to promote moods. It lists moods and tells you what colors enhance that mood. Color Healing Home gives you more choices of color hue. They have a page for each hue and then tell you what moods each of these hues promote. You say tomatoe and I say tomato. I decided to keep both books, but I am a color junkie.
What makes Color Therapy standout is the color choice quiz. If that is something that interests you, I would recommend this book. Otherwise, it is a coin toss between Color Therapy and Color Healing, and other books with bold uses of color.

HASH(0x8c2e50a8) out of 5 stars Disappointing 19 Sept. 2001
By A Customer - Published on
I had hoped for more. The title sounded so intriguing. But what I got was nothing new. I have other decorating books (and magazine articles) that cover the same ground. Tips such as using your wardrobe as a guide to colors you want to live with are old clichés and don't always apply. (I wear only neutrals yet have a colorful house.)

HASH(0x8c6452dc) out of 5 stars Great for Design, Poor for Chromotherapy 12 April 2007
By Tina Michelle - Published on
It is nice that the design industry has begun to look into spiritual healing therapies such as Chromotherapy. I have reviewed the color choices, however, and find they do not always match up with the truest teachings of Chromotherapy. So, if you are looking for a great design book that helps people associate their moods with color, this is nice. If you are truly wanting to trigger the brain's release of certain chemicals, you will need to find a hard core book on Chromotherapy.

HASH(0x8c1d893c) out of 5 stars Inspiring 8 Aug. 2005
By A. Krueger - Published on
As a design and decorating editor, I've found Color Therapy at Home to be a great resource. both at home and at work. The photos and text are inspiring and informative. I have a library of books on color, and this is the one I turn to again and again.
