Colour has the power to transform our homes - not just the way they look, but the way they feel and the way we live in them. It can stimulate or soothe, energize or pacify. It can even give you a headache. It doesn't have to. This book shows you how to succeed with colour. How to build colour schemes that work with what you have: the style and proportion of your rooms, your existing furnishings and accessories. And how colour works: how different colours can change your mood, how colour affects the light and dimensions of a space, and how to create great colour combinations. Here is all you need to know to make colour work for you.
