Book Description

March 31 2009
Whether you want to redecorate an entire house or simply jazz up a dull room, color can give your home a whole new look. "The Color Design File" is your key to exploring this powerful decorative element. Every aspect of color is expertly covered: Using color discusses the properties and qualities of the different colors, how colors work together and how color is affected by light, texture, and scale. Neutrals and naturals showcases a decorative palette from white to black, encompassing cream to chocolate brown and every shade of gray. The colors takes you on a journey through the spectrum. Each color is shown in real homes: alone, in a dazzling array of shades, and with other colors. Useful information includes an address list of great places for finding color and space for notes. *Expert practical advice from leading interiors writer Leslie Geddes-Brown. *Useful pockets for storing swatches, paint charts, and magazine cuttings. *A comprehensive directory of where to find the best paint and paper colors. *Handy spiral-bound format, with pages for your notes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't go far without this book! July 26 2009
By Barbara Bell - Published on Amazon.com
Geddes-Brown has brought us a book that is easy to use, versatile, and downright fun. Organized with tabs that allow easy reference to sections such as Using Color, Neutrals and Naturals, The Colors, and Helpful Information, this is essential when planning out the remodel of one room or a whole house of rooms.

The Using Color section is WONDERFUL!!! It educates the reader to colors, highlights, textiles, and paint finishes, among other rudimentary concepts. Naturals and Neutrals, as well as The Colors, allows the reader to explore one color in its entirety, with photographs to stimulate the senses. The Helpful Information section allows you to use this book interactively, with a 'notes & sketches' section built into it. Items shown throughout the book are highlighted at the back, as well, in the resources section.

This book is dead, dead useful while planning your remodel. Don't go far without it.
