From the Inside Flap:

Susan Sargent’s The Comfort of Color presents dramatic color makeovers of nine diverse home environments, from a young couple’s starter home to downsizing retirees’ apartment. Author Susan Sargent is known for brightly colored, quality home furnishings and accessories found in her stores in Vermont and on Boston’s Newbury Street, as well as in numerous retail outlets.

In this new book, Sargent emphasizes finding a style and color scheme that suits and reflects the homeowner’s personality. The hands-on presentation of each makeover is inspirational, whether a complete renovation or a minor revamp. Sargent demonstrates how color can transform the atmosphere of a home while complementing the owner’s family heirlooms, antiques, and personal collections. She also discusses how color can influence people’s emotions. Sidebars include tips on how to resist formulaic approaches, chromophobia versus chromophilia, and the power of different colors. Susan Sargent’s sophisticated style, full of pattern and bright hues, will bring great warmth and personality to every reader’s home.
