Overview

The definitive guide to paint by the nation’s most sought-after color consultant
When Martha Stewart was developing her first paint collection, the Araucana Colors (based on the hues of her chickens’ eggs), she turned to the nation’s top color consultant: Eve Ashcraft. Eve helped Martha to pinpoint the colors of that enormously successful paint line, thus assisting in transforming an industry along the way. In her first book, The Right Color, her own curated palette (her paint line launches this fall) and countless other favorite shades and color combinations provide inspiration for every room in the house. Packed with trade secrets, such as how to make a small room look bigger, how to use color to brighten a space, and how to use paint to resolve myriad architectural challenges, this book will give anyone the confidence to choose a palette that will make the most of any space.

Editorial Reviews

The right color choices can brighten a room or even make it seem significantly larger, but mismatches flatten the effects of the best interior design intentions. This is color consultant Eve Ashcraft's first book, but she brings to it more than two decades of working with architects, designers, homeowners, and renters. Thus, The Right Color carries quality counsel generally obtainable only at a high price. Subtle, stylish, and clearly presented. (P.S. The author's own paint line debuts this fall.)

From the Publisher
“A practical, inspiring book.”
Library Journal
 
“Definitive.”
Los Angeles Daily News
 
“If you’re contemplating a change, or if you're moving into a new blank canvas of a space . . . then you absolutely must read Eve Ashcraft's new book, The Right Color.”
Apartment Therapy
 
Library Journal
With over 20 years of experience as a color consultant, Ashcraft demonstrates, in terms amateurs will understand, the process of selecting colors. Using over 160 color photographs, she explains how light, texture, and juxtaposition affect the appearance of color and provides 45 color schemes shown throughout the home. Ashcraft also presents nine examples from her commissions and her own home to discuss her approach to color in historic and modern applications. In addition, each of the 28 colors in her recently developed house-paint line is shown individually with recommended color schemes. She concludes with advice on paint, other supplies, and painting a room. A practical, inspiring book.
