Annie Sloan's Color Schemes is the essential guide to using a crucial decorating tool -- the color palette. Annie Sloan puts it all together room by room using stunning color schemes -- organized in low, medium, or high contrasts. This book introduces the main shade types to be found within each color and suggests dramatic and harmonious complementary colors. There are simple questions to help choose decorative palettes such as Hippie Chic, Riviera Touch, or Florentine Renaissance. Readers answer questions, then turn to the relevant group of color palettes, organized into three contrasting categories. There are hundreds of paint combinations representing a wide variety of tastes. Each theme features ten color swatches -- from Beach House to Classic Victorian -- easily recreated using Annie's paint recipes or the color masks built into the book flaps to isolate color at your local paint store.

Evidence-based approach to color planning lets you discover the impact of color on people and space. You'll learn to systematically develop innovative, holistic color solutions in interior design with this book's evidence-based approach to color planning. The author sets forth a color planning framework that integrates multiple criteria, enabling you to fully consider the complex role that color plays in interior design. Color Planning for Interiors is based on the findings from a national study that the author conducted, which identified five categories of color criteria: Color as Composition Color Preferences Color as Communication Color Pragmatics Color for Engagement The author interviewed noted designers and colorists about the projects that best represented their approach to color. As a result, you'll discover how leaders in the field examine color from compositional, symbolic, behavioral, preferential, and pragmatic perspectives in order to arrive at a carefully considered solution. Moreover, you'll see how designers and architects apply this knowledge to a broad range of interior spaces, including workplaces, restaurants, retail settings, healthcare facilities, and private residences. Complementing theory and research, real-life examples are presented from interior design projects that consider color in relation to light, materiality, and interior architecture. In addition, full-color diagrams, photographs, and design renderings illustrate concepts throughout the book to help you understand how to select and work with color.
