I subscribe to quite a few decorating magazines, but I have to admit my very favorite is House Beautiful. And one of those reasons I love HB, is the designer color column. I love how they put it all together in one resource.
With special insider advice from top designers, and a directory of actual paint swatches, for $9.99 it is a great resource for both pros and novices.
I have found most people need visuals to imagine how colors will actually look in a room. This bookazine has a lot of great eye-candy pictures. Below is an example of a Best Bedroom Color from designer Mario Buatta.
Individual chapters help you explore colors families, colors by rooms, neutrals, room by mood, natural colors, bold colors, and problem solving with color.
Michael Ostrow’s Best Blue
I think this book is well worth the investment of $9.99. I am definitely suggesting it on my decorating favorites book list. Have you purchased yet? What is your favorite new color you found?
