The Home Decorator's Color and Texture Bible: 180 Complete Schemes for a Harmonious Home by Adrienne Chinn

A comprehensive how-to handbook for combining color and texture with 180 ready-to-use palettes.

This guide for homeowners and professionals offers 180 foolproof combinations for effective colors and welcome textures. Each example is displayed on a single spread using color and texture swatches that clearly show how to create a coordinated decor. The carefully selected palettes include flooring; paint colors and accents; fabrics for furnishings and drapes; and surface colors, textures and materials.

The book provides dozens of options to suit any taste. Each scheme starts with a floor color, whether existing or newly installed. For example, "Country Casual" features a traditional oak floor paired with muted yellow-greens, deep orange and azure blue, plus the textures of green plaid wool and mossy green chenille.
