Better Homes and Gardens Color SolutionsBook - 2002
By starting with the elements that make the colour statement -- walls, woodwork, ceilings, fabric, furniture, and floor covers -- this book helps you to identify the look you want to create and chart a path toward achieving it. Each question is followed by several options because there's no one 'right' answer. The best solutions depends on your personal style and the effect you want to achieve. Throughout the book, tips from homeowners and experienced designers supply nuggets of information you can use: how to achieve special effects with graphite and polyurethane, how to paint a 'popcorn' ceiling, how to determine whether your kitchen cabinets are real wood, how to care for marble and tile surfaces, and more. 'Colour Concepts' pages explain how colours relate to each other, what value and intensity mean, how light affects colour, and how wall colour can enhance or detract from wood furnishings. The resource section provides paint and fabric information keyed to photographs by page.
