House Beautiful Color Workshop: Decorating Stylish Rooms
Color can really make a room come alive—generating the illusion of space, adding brightness, or even dividing it into separate areas. But how can a home decorator use color to best advantage? House Beautiful can help, with a workshop that presents all the essentials: choosing a color scheme, assembling a swatchboard, selecting a precise palette, and troubleshooting. Find out how to use the color wheel, test and develop ideas, create accents that bring a bit of zing to an interior, get great effects with pattern, and combine different shades successfully. Hundreds of photos display gorgeous spaces, and illustrate a variety of ways to work with primary colors, neutral tones, and black and white—along with textured paints and fabulous wallpapers.
