Lee (Zen Interiors) explains how to combine color using a variety of materials and decorative touches to create pleasing decor. A multitude of color photographs show how the color and texture of wood, stone, tiles, paint, wallpaper, fabric, and decorative accessories can enliven every room of the home. Lee intersperses tips that focus on a particular element that adds color. This volume complements Adrienne Chinn's The Home Decorator's Color & Texture Bible and provides additional inspiration for amateur decorators.
