This handsome book is about choosing color combinations not necessarily for a specific use. Each spread contains about seven photographs and a color palette, like paint chips. The color palettes provide inspiration and reliable combinations for use in any number of projects: home décor, fashion; wedding celebrations, table settings, cake decorating, garden design -- imagination and circumstance are the only limit. It almost makes the difficult decision for you before you spend money. No more returned clothing, unused paint, or discarded drapery!
