House Beautiful Shares 500 Designer Color Favorites
"What's the first color you see in the morning?" "What color makes you happiest?" "What color would you like to try, but are scared to?" Prying questions like these from House Beautiful can help you to reveal your inner color courage and move along that project you've been stuck on! Seven chapters help you explore colors families, colors by rooms, neutrals, room by mood, natural colors, bold colors, and problem solving with color.
House Beautiful has a new bookazine, 500 Favorite Paint Colors, available now for $9.99 at bookstores and news stands across the map! To celebrate this bookazine that's being touted as the "Ultimate Paint Guide", I'm featuring some of my favorite pages over the next week and ask you to share your ideas and colors for multiple chances to win a free bookazine from yours truly!
Hey, I'm always game for any opportunity to share the gift of color with deserving colorphiles. Full disclosure here (and shameless self promotion as is customary): Check out my promo in the bookazine on page 85! This Color Bible is full of rich color advice from top designers and guess what? One company's colors are cited by these professionals more than any other. Can you guess who? Of course you can! For those who know more...
In each post over the next week, I'll share with you a page from the bookazine and pose a related question to you. The answer(s) I think are most interesting and are posted by 8am EST on Friday June 4, 2010 will win a copy of House Beautiful's 500 Favorite Paint Colors.
Okay, here's the first installment. Here we go!
