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.
