From Barnes & Noble

The not-too-secret tool of every adept interior designer is color. Professionals know that even a subtle alteration of shade or a bold new combination of colors can enhance the appeal of even the most drab room. This new hardcover by House Beautiful author Lisa Cregan teaches home owners and renters to apply the strategies that designer consultants use so successfully. Browse it; buy it; use it.

There is also a section in which designers describe how they employed a specific hue as they decorated a room, along with examples of various color schemes . . .this volume gives an abundance of examples from numerous designers offering a variety of ideas and practical advice to inspire readers to tackle their own residences.” —Library Journal

House Beautiful Colors for Your Home presented 300 colors—each with a color swatch, manufacturer, and name or number of the paint—that were designers' favorites and provided a helpful guide to paint color for the home. Here, House Beautiful contributor Cregan (House Beautiful Blue) offers even more information about how interior designers who have been featured in House Beautiful tackle color, presenting more than 400 color photographs of professionally designed interiors and gardens. Cregan includes comparisons of how a particular color is used in contemporary vs. traditional styles and its use for walls and as an accent in various rooms of the home. There is also a section in which designers describe how they employed a specific hue as they decorated a room, along with examples of various color schemes. VERDICT Whereas Tricia Guild's Tricia Guild Decorating with Color highlights her own use of color, this volume gives an abundance of examples from numerous designers offering a variety of ideas and practical advice to inspire readers to tackle their own residences.
