House Beautiful COLOR -The Perfect Shade For Every Room!

I had to do a bit of shopping today and was near a book store so of course I had to hit it!  I immediately went to the art and design section and grabbed a great book, "House Beautiful COLOR- The Perfect Shade For Every Room."  House Beautiful always does a great handbook for designers and homeowners and this one takes the cake!  If you haven't seen this yet , you will definitely want it after this post!  It addresses all the staple paint colors and how they can be incorporated into our interiors and they even give you a paint chip cheat sheet pages with each color!  I also love the suggestion pages that have items that HB feels work well with that color theme and even tell you where to find them.   This is a long post, but believe me it could have gone on forever because there is just so much to see and read in this fabulous book! Enjoy, and have a wonderful Halloween everyone!

    These images are gorgeous-such rich design inspiration here. Color can be such the chameleon in design spaces. I think you may just have my dream job as a designer. Fabulous!
