A fully-illustrated guide to understanding, choosing and using colour in your home, this book adapts the ‘Colour Me Beautiful’ approach and applies it to home furnishings.
In Colour Scheming Carolyn Warrender divides the colour spectrum into seven groups, named after the natural elements – Earth, Fire, Air, Water, Wind and Mineral (plus Natural) – and helps the reader identify which colours they are happy to live with.
The book is divided into 2 main sections:
UNDERSTANDING COLOUR explains the seven elements and how colours affect us. It shows how to put colour schemes together that really work.
LIVING WITH COLOUR illustrates the practical use of colour shown through photographs and colour artworks of stage-by-stage painting sequences and other techniques. With its practical approach and the use of inspirational colour photographs throughout Carolyn Warrender’s Book of Colour Scheming will give readers confidence in their decorating decisions and enable everyone to become their own interior designer.
