Color is one of the most effective tools in architecture and interior
design. One of its most important aspects is the effect it has on a
person’s mood: color has the power to contribute to the mental
well-being of the occupants of a house. Harmonious and welcoming
surroundings can be obtained with one or two colors, or combinations of
color. This may be a matter of personal taste, though color, and how it
is applied, cannot be left to chance. It is important to understand the
language of color in order to be able to create one’s own environment.
This book focuses on color and how to make the most of it in reduced
spaces. Readers will no doubt find this book a great source of
inspiration and will turn to the ideas and hundreds of illustrations
within when making decisions about decoration. Concentrated on small
spaces, the ideas presented in this book offer practical solutions for
visually enlarging spaces and also demonstrate that a contemporary,
stylish house is not necessarily a matter of size.
