Synopsis: Change the color of a room's walls, floor, or ceiling, and the mood changes dramatically. Color can soothe or energize; make a space seem larger or more intimate; and transform ambiance -- all for a fraction of what other renovations cost. Experienced designers know what effect a change in color will have, but for most of us, repainting is something of a gamble. No longer. With The Color Book in hand, anyone can instandy see what a living room will look like with taupe walls, maple floors, and a sage ceiling, for example. More an essential design and decor tool than a book, this innovative guide takes eighty pages and divides them into three sections -- floor, walls, and ceiling -- that can be flipped separately to instantly mix-and-match a vast array of colors. Covering the bathroom, bedroom, living room, and kitchen, The Color Book visually demonstrates more than eleven thousand different color combinations offering near endless inspiration and real help in selecting the perfect color scheme. The accompanying text is an accessible guide to choosing and mixing colors, while an international color key and directory offer additional resources. A unique new way to encourage experimentation and stir the creative senses, this innovative mix-and-match method allows amateur decorators and professionals alike to discover the best colors for every room before they ever walk into a paint store.

Review: One of the simplest and least expensive ways to dramatically alter a home is through the use of paint and color, and yet by far the largest number of people choose white and off-white paints for the bulk of their painting at home out of fear of making a mistake, opting for mundane and "safe" over dramatic and fun. This practical workbook takes the guesswork out of choosing color combinations for living rooms, bathrooms, kitchens, and bedrooms by providing 11,264 (!) color combinations that the reader can examine by flipping over sections of the pages, changing the ceiling, wall, and floor colors in one setting for each kind of room. It is fun and exciting to see how the combinations produce dramatically different feelings for each identical space as you flip through the book, and doing so will inspire the reader to experiment and let the fantasies run wild. Unlike squinting at color swatches and trying to imagine what a room will look like with green walls, mauve floors, and a blue ceiling, all you have to do is arrange the sections of the pages, and there it is right before your eyes! This is a very inventive and very useful workbook that will inspire the timid, formerly "off-white" crowd to go for the bold and eye-catching color combinations they have always dreamed about but were reluctant to make happen. --Mark A. Hetts
