A coat of paint, a bright fabric, or a splash of pattern can inject new life into a room, often at little cost--but choosing just the right colour or combination of colours can be a daunting task. The solution is "Color Essentials." This beautiful little book by interiors guru Leslie Geddes-Brown will take most of the fear and much of the fuss out of a home colour makeover. Color Essentials starts with "Using Colour," a chapter that explains how colour is used to transform interior spaces. It includes tips on finding the colours you want and choosing the ideal paint finishes. The core of the book, "The Colors," examines in detail the vaious colour families: naturals and neutrals, cool colours, and warm colours. Hard working bullet point supplement the text, and a photo-montage page at the end of each section offers plenty of ideas to get you thinking. Finally, an invaluable directory of resources tells you the best places to find what you need.
