Selecting a paint color, whether for a home's exterior or the bedroom walls, can feel like a perilous venture. For good reason. Like no other aspect of our environment, color has the power to profoundly affect our feeling of well-being. And taste in color is an extremely personal matter: to choose a color--a saturated red, an understated ochre, a sizzling-hot pink--is to say something revealing about oneself. It's no wonder that committing to a color demands an act of bravery.

With Color at Home , the Echo Design Group's Meg and Steven Roberts aim to inspire and encourage you to jump into the exhilarating world of color. Illustrated with more than 150 images of color-infused homes across the country, the book will bolster your courage as you develop a color vision for your own home.

Color at Home insightfully explores the emotional territory mapped by each hue--aqua's refreshing oasis; orange's warm radiance; the stark, urbane chic of black and white--while providing essential practical advice on topics such as coordinating colors with a home's architectural style or historical period. The innovative color grids included in the book help you define your preferred palette.
