One of the most daunting but exciting aspects of Interior Design is balancing the right combination of colors within a single space. Even for the most experienced interior decorators, this sphere of design can be a headache and is even more of a difficulty for everyone else. However, there are plenty of aids and one of these is The Color Scheme Bible by color consultant and design expert Anna Starmer.

Within the book are contained 200 color palettes specially catered for the regular home environment. Whether a professional decorator or just a home-owner wanting to spruce up a bedroom or living room, this helpful and detailed guide will provide a great deal of help when it comes to choosing the colors best for your needs. The color palettes have been divided into nine different sections each based on a particular hue. Introductions to the color wheel are also given as are ideas for accents, highlights, applications as well as tips on balance and contrasting.

The best inspiration for interior decor often comes from the world around us. In this book, Starmer also offers advice on how to gather ideas from everyday life and to see the patterns and beauty in objects we might never have noticed before. Color can change and influence an interior space quite dramatically and so it’s important to discover which tones and hues best suite your design themes, personality and the spacial architecture of the room in question. With just a few color selections, it’s possible to make what began as a small and dark interior into a seemingly larger, bright and thoroughly cheerful living environment that will be the envy of all the neighbors.
