Colour in Decoration by Annie Sloan
Promoting an understanding of colour principles and describing how colours work, this is a sourcebook of practical advice and positive ideas for creating floor-to-ceiling decorative success. With an introduction on the history and use of pigments, colour "portraits" demonstrate how colour is used to manipulate space, create mood, add light and dark to every room. With additional sections on colour in focus, and in combination, this is a comprehensive book on how to use colour effectively. Annie Sloan is the author of "Simple Painted Furniture", and co-author (with Kate Gwynn) of "The Complete Book of Decorative Paint Techniques" and (with Felicity Bryan) of "Nursery Style".
