America’s leading color expert shows how to choose the right color combinations for all your rooms based on Color Moods from your own personality, nature, and travel.

It helps you determine how you want yourself, your family, and your friends to feel when entering each room in your home. It combines psychology with a practical how-to and reveals which colors and color combinations will achieve the feeling and personal style you want to project in each room.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Eiseman (Alive with Color, LJ 6/15/83) presents a comprehensive reference for the amateur and professional to use in choosing color schemes for interior decorating. She provides ways to identify responses to color, looks at color's use in creating a mood, and provides different settings that can help inspire color choices. The psychological, sociological, and historical meaning of each color is then detailed, as is its use in particular rooms. A good companion to The Color Book: 11,264 Color Combinations for Your Home (LJ 1/98); highly recommended for all interior design collections and public libraries.
Leatrice Eiseman is the founder and director of the Eiseman Center for Color Information and Training and spokesperson for Pantone Inc. In Colors For Your Every Mood, Leatrice draws upon her many years of experience and expertise to provide the reader with an informative, accessible reference for discovering one's true decorating colors to create calm and soothing or dramatic and excitement for the apartment or home interiors. Illustrated with more than 150 color combinations representing the entire spectrum of "moods", Colors For Your Every Mood is replete with practical, highly recommended information and psychological insights for the do-it-yourself room designer seeking to evoke feelings of whimsy, nurturence, tradition, romance, contemplation, dynamism, tranquilly, sensuality, the exotic, or the natural in their living and working spaces.
From the Publisher
"Eiseman's book includes dozens of palettes (a main, or anchor color and three or four accents), organized in what she calls color ‘moods.’....The executive director of Pantone Color Institute looks at the emotional meanings of color, offers a test to help readers gauge their own reactions to particular shades and provides dozens of color palettes aimed at evoking certain moods in a room."

"A guide to learning how to create personal color choices to transform a room into something dynamic. From balance to crossovers, personal color moods and nature color moods, pages pair vivid colors with interior rooms and reflections on what happens when mood blends with interior decorating savvy. Both are excellent foundation references for aspiring interior decorators considering the special challenges of using and blending color choices."

"An expert's guide to choosing the right color combinations for interior design."

"Eiseman's book includes dozens of ready-to-use palettes (a main, or anchor color and three or four accents), organized according to what she calls color ‘moods.’
To turn a room romantic, for example, she suggests combining grayed tones of light blue, rose, pale green, and greenish white. For a sensuous mood, try scarlet, deep orange, light olive, purple and canteloupe."
