Color Palettes : Atmospheric Interiors Using the Donald Kaufman Color Collection Total Hits - 681  |  Hits Today - 0Rating:   Rating Average (24)    |  View Ratings  |  Add Your Rating
Many elements go into making a beautiful room - one of the most important is color. Certainly it is the one we can most easily control, often with profound results. Yet one of the greatest challenges in decorating is deciding which colors fit our own space, which ones will make the room feel just right. In Color Palettes, Suzanne Butterfield offers real help, showing 26 glorious interiors primarily colored with paints from the Donald Kaufman Color Collection, full-spectrum colors known for their extraordinary effects. The palettes for each story, shown as swatches, give readers ready-made color groupings they can adopt for their own homes or alter as they wish. A lucid text explains why each palette was chosen and how individual colors affect each other and the rooms in which they were used. Through specific examples, the reader will gain a solid grounding in how to approach coloring a space: how to make the architecture work in different ways through color, how finishes can change the entire feeling of a room. The importance of balancing warm and cool tones, of providing contrasts, of juxtaposing complements are all explained in simple, practical terms. A final chapter tells how to test paint colors and choose finishes.
