Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0307461785, Hardcover)

Color is both the simplest and strongest assertion of a room’s personality, and today it adorns every surface–ceilings, floors, woodwork, fabrics, accents, and more. With the limitless amount of color combinations available, how do you choose without making the wrong statement? In Perfect Palettes, Stephanie Hoppen shows just how stylish and easy color can be, and with her lovely rooms and paint samples, she proves that using several palettes throughout the home no longer has to look garish. Instead, colors are now a rich and warm base for all styles of decorating.

To Stephanie, color is one of life’s luxuries–she feels that nothing is better than walking into a room with a well-balanced color scheme. Her fine-tuned strategies demonstrate to even the most color-shy person how to pin down that perfect palette for just about any taste. Her advice: begin by identifying your own sense of the full color spectrum by taking cues from the familiar. Landscapes, food, and art all become Stephanie’s inspiration for selecting hues to create inviting, comfortable, and enduring spaces throughout the home.

To get you started, each section begins with a natural theme that inspires a palette–such as lilac and plum, sunshine and citrus, night and day–to tell the complete color story. From tonal accents and changing scales to subtle and contrasting shades, you’ll find more than 200 complete color combinations to suit any style and inspiration for creating additional ones. To make projects even easier, Stephanie includes the paint number for every color used in the book.

With essential information on tools and techniques, a quick color-theory tutorial, and an extensive directory of recommended suppliers, Stephanie’s beautifully illustrated guide takes the guesswork out of decorating, and shows how color can strike just the right mood in every room of your home.
