    The worst

    This is the dumbest book ever. Just pages and pages of the same ugly furniture with different colored walls behind it. I thought it would show rooms that look "done" and show how good a wall color could look. Not even worth the $3 i paid for it used. After flipping through it once i am letting my dog tear it to shreds. Someone should get some pleasure out of it!

    TOO MANY OPTIONS

    There is waaaayyyy too much going on in this book. Too many choices. Can't there be a easier way to choose color. Keep it simple for the readers to use and understand.
