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. Most decorating books start out telling readers how to achieve someone else’s notion of how a room should look. This book is different. 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.
"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."
