Summary This book is about choosing color combinations not necessarily for a specific use. Each spread contains about seven photographs and a color palette, like paint chips. The color palettes provide inspiration and reliable combinations for use in any number of projects: home decor, fashion; wedding celebrations, table settings, cake decorating, garden design -- imagination and circumstance are the only limit. It almost makes the difficult decision for you before you spend money. No more returned clothing, unused paint, or discarded drapery! Divided into major color groups, each section explores a range of hues, from primary brights to subtle pastels. Include examples from fashion, decor (living rooms, dining rooms, bedrooms, kitchens, bathrooms, exteriors), garden (especially flowers), nature (including animals), cosmetics, food (including wedding cakes), fabrics (often luxurious), jewelry, and much more.
