    I am interior design challenged. So when we decided to move to a different house which is older and has nooks and crannies I realized that my former homes’ open style wouldn’t work there. I also wanted to give the new place some color. I went to Lowe’s and Home Depot and stood there like an idiot – picking up those little pieces of colored paper, trying to visualize how they would look. That didn’t work. I don’t have “an eye” for that —- need all the help I can get. So I got this book at the library and then decided to buy it. It’s basic and very helpful. I just moved into the new house and have bought some paint based on ideas in this book. So if you have trouble with color, this is a good reference. If you’re a host on the Home Channel, forget it. You probably wrote it.

    If you are needing a little color inspiration and ideas, great book to have. I like to keep a few of these types of books around just for that reason. There may be a scheme I haven’t considered. Many times I find one that works with what I have. The other thing I enjoyed abt the book is that it familiarizes the reader with a few different types of color schemes used…like contemporary ideas, mediterranean ideas, exotic ideas, and a few techniques.
