The New York Times and USA Today Bestseller! What is your color story? There is a reason we dream in color. Color speaks louder than words— it can not only brighten your home; it can brighten your life. Color can transform a room—your mood, your family, and even your well-being. Are you living life in color—or living in neutral? In Change Your Home, Change Your Life with Color, life stylist and inspirational interior designer Moll Anderson adds the dimension of color to her commonsense design and lifestyle advice, helping you discover the amazing transformation that color can make in your home and life. Our feelings about color are deeply rooted and emotionally based on our personal lives, and the powerful effect of color is most evident in our homes, where it impacts our moods, behaviors, and emotions. Understanding why you love and dislike certain colors is key to exploring your own personal color story, opening you up to embracing the colors that will renew, revamp, and revitalize your home and life. Just as The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up changed the way we think about the link between organization and joy, Moll introduces a whole new way of thinking about the link between color and mood. “I became interested in color when I discovered that it was not only a reflection of my mood, but my state of being. I looked around and saw I was living in black and white, and I realized I was hiding. In this book I share the transformational elements of my own journey with color to help you transform your personal color story.”- Moll Anderson Using vibrant, beautiful photographs, Moll highlights a fresh, modern approach to creating colorful spaces. Thirteen colors are featured in individual chapters, and each includes simple color solutions, fabulous “Pop of Color” additions, and Moll’s personal color lessons and stories from her designs and life. Guided journal pages will lead you on a journey to explore your own personal connections to color. Whether it’s a touch of color to change the energy of a space, or a canvas of colorful options, there is something for everyone to inspire you to live every day more colorfully.
