A lucid text explains why each palette was chosen and how individual colors affect each other and the rooms in which they were used." "Through specific examples, the reader will gain a solid grounding in how to approach coloring a space: how to make the architecture work in different ways through color, how finishes can change the entire feeling of a room. The importance of balancing warm and cool tones, of providing contrasts, of juxtaposing complements are all explained in simple, practical terms. A final chapter tells how to test paint colors and choose finishes."--Jacket.
