Colour is interior design's hardest-working tool. It's the one element that can alter our mood, influence the way we see space, camouflage imperfections, give us an instant taste of drama or serenity. And paint is the easiest, most effective, and most inexpensive way of achieving those effects - the quickest, most powerful way to transform any room. Sifting through hundreds or thousands of colour chips in the paint store can be daunting. You can start with your favourite colours, or copy a scheme you saw at a neighbour's house, or play it safe and stay with the same colour you already have, but that doesn't always guarantee decorating success. In Interior Style, the experts at Benjamin Moore share more than 100 years of know-how and advice on what does. Chapter by chapter, colour family by colour family, Interior Style explains how anyone can master the art of using colour. Rich photographs of interiors take the guesswork our of choosing a palette and pairing colours because each is matched to specific Benjamin Moore paints. Expert colour tips and advice from leading designers such as Vicente Wolf, Stephen Gambrel, Benjamin Noriega-Ortiz, Miles Redd, Jamie Drake, and Darryl Carter are included throughout Interior Style, together with examples of their best work. Interior Style explores the properties of colour; how it behaves in both natural and artificial light; how colour look next to one another - within a room, from room to room, or in conjunction with furnishings; how to incorporate neutrals, whites and off-whites without becoming bland; how to uses extreme, bold colours without being overpowered; how any other color palette can be used in your home. Plus, in a special how-to section Benjamin Moore's technical experts share their practical know-how.
