The Perfect Palette : Fifty Inspired Color Plans for Painting Every Roomin Your Home Total Hits - 432  |  Hits Today - 0Rating:   Rating Average (62)    |  View Ratings  |  Add Your Rating
Bonnie Rosser Krims wrote The Perfect Palette for those brave souls ready to try something that has daunted many an interior designer: painting the walls something besides white. Even though paint is one of the least expensive ways to change the look of a room, most people find those little cards of color chips too intimidating. Krims's 50 color plans are foolproof combinations based on the aesthetics of certain places and familiar objects, with very specific details to help you plan which palette to use with your furnishings. Each page describes a palette of three Benjamin Moore paint colors, though Krims provides a cross-reference to two other brands and urges readers not to feel limited to a particular brand. Accent and trim colors are suggested, and three adjectives are used to describe the mood of the palette. "Meet Me in Miami," a soft orange/blue/green palette, is "fun, easygoing, peaceful" and "works well in ranch houses, deck houses, and 1950s contemporary houses;" Krims suggests it specifically for brightening a basement or family room. "The Emerald Isle," a green/yellow/violet combination with accents of dark orange and white trim, is "sassy, lush, luminous," and will make darker wood furniture "look lovely." Color Palettes is both intensely practical and utterly lovely, and will almost certainly inspire some brave experimentation. No more boring white rooms! --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
