A mine of information on everything connected with the decorative use of colour in the home . . . I would highly recommend this excellent book (Everyman Review)
Should inspire confidence in the most timid interior decorator. Lavish pictures of every style of room show how colour can be used without trepidation (Good Housekeeping)

And the way that each colour is covered is unique. Very minimal (but useful) text, and instead full page pictures of utterly inspiring interiors featuring the colour tone/intensity on each and every page. It uses excellent photographs from a wide and rich range of interior design. All true to life from real (moderna and historical) homes - and usually illustrating a good marriage between a particular colour/shade and the style it most compliments. Going through it, one soon becomes aware of one's taste. The pictures are so good - so evocative of the theme of that particular colour - that one has a simple emotional response of things like "love", "comforting", "not me", "does nothing for me", "joyful", etc. Using this book and trusting my visceral response to the delightful, subtle shades on each page, I virtually decorated my whole house.
A very sophisticated book on colour, that speaks to us in the most simple of ways - through the eye to the heart.
