Drawing on"" examples of contemporary homes from the pages of interior design magazine Marie Claire "Maison," Bridget Bodoano's Living with Color showcases modern urban spaces, period town houses and simple country homes to demonstrate how color derived from paint, wallpapers, textiles, furniture, accessories and lighting can work together to create stunning interiors. Living with Color's comprehensive first chapter looks at how color works--the origins of raw pigments, how and why certain colors complement one another and the effect of color on space, in different light and even on the mind and body. Subsequent chapters focus on the importance of white and how to effectively introduce other colors to it, and on how to create successful interiors using strong shades, historical colors, the rich hues derived from old tapestries, carpets and paintings, muted pastels and the sheen of watercolor tints.
