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.

"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."

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.
