This book starts with a few pages about how to pick a color for your purpose. But what it really is, is a list of color schemes, one per page, 250 of them. Each scheme is five colors that she believes go well together. Two of the colors in the scheme are accent colors, the other three are the basic scheme. She lists 21 schemes for pinks going from palest peach to deep magenta. 23 orange ranging from persimmon to very dark brown. 23 yellows gong up to a deep ochre. So the range is from soft pastels to very harsh and very dark colors.

Is the book worth it? I've not sure (hence the 3). I did find a couple of color schemes I liked in it, but I like yellow and there weren't many schemes for soft clear yellows. Most schemes were for the more intense, deeper, muddier yellows that I don't care for. I believe that's true for the other colors as well. For my taste, I think I could have done as well playing with paint chips for an afternoon.

Deliberately choosing to use 5 colors per room in particular proportions was a novel idea for me, and one I probably wouldn't like to stock to. So I guess I didn't get much for my time or money.

This is an excellent book....the beginning of the book explains a little about colour schemes etc and how to use the book. 80% of the book covers colour schemes for red, orange, browns....etc..practically all the colours of the rainbow......for each colour scheme..there is a recommendation for other suggested accent colours. I am soooo pleased that I purchased this book.....it will assist me in choosing colours for quilts.....fabric as well as rooms that require a change in colour scheme...... great buy....go get it.

My main problem with this book is that the colors on the page don't match the descriptions at all - it's like the printer somehow changed and muted all the colors the author was talking about? Like she'll describe a color scheme for "shocking neon red" but the color shown is a soft rose pink, or she'll describe a color as "emerald" and you're clearly looking at dark olive. So you really can't tell what colors go together because all the other colors shown are way off, too. It kind of renders the book useless.

I teach interior decorating and color is one concept I lavish on. And have spent a great deal of time learning about. The color schemes don't clearly stick to the rules of color scheme selection. And are not identified by the basic color scheme types...rather titles like "Diverse, Neat and Tidy", "History, heritage and heirloom". Pause for a moment, do any of you know what colors these titles include or refer too? Me, neither! Now a word about the format...not well done...simply looked like someone took a paint brush and swiped some colors on a page, gave it some fanciful name. I guess I thought it would show many examples of the basic color scheme types like monochromatic, related, triad,complementary, etc. It is not too beneficial to me as an instructional tool. And I am afraid for someone without an previous color knowledge this could lead them in the wrong direction for using color.

This is actually just a fair color guide if you're considering what colors go well together in painting a room, or rooms, or for a paint project using different colors. Also helpful in working with coordinating colors. I wouldn't say this was a 'bible' as the title suggests, because it isn't quite that indepth. Just mainly a book of color scheme suggestions, using the same paint guide materials you can find for free in a home improvement store.

I have always had problems deciding what color combinations worked well together. So when I read a review about this book in my local paper I decided that this book might help. It has helped me visualize the color combinations I am considering for my master bedroom remodel. I now can pick a wall color & see at a glance what other colors will complement it, rather than just relying on my rather questionable "eye for color". It helps make the remodeling & redecoration process easier & definitely more fun for anyone who is color challenged!

I also like wire bound page format of this book. This makes it easy to keep pages open to the one's you are looking at & I feel that it will maintain its like new condition even after years of use.

I bought several books trying to help me get my home decorated in my style, but not really knowing my style. I have never really had enough money to decorate a home before so after 10 + years of marriage, I wanted this home to show a bit of my personality. This was the key ingredient I needed to spark my imagination. The color combinations really do have emotions that are triggered and helped me to find the right colors for the moods I want in my home.

One fair warning, after reading this, you may end up wanting to go with colored trim. We are learning quick, changing your trim color is either time consuming (if you are a diy) or expensive (if you hire it done). But so far it has been worth it; the colors really play off each other. Even one of the painters I had give me a bid wants a copy of Color Scheme Bible.

The other decorating books will end up more of coffee table items for looking, but not very helpful. You can't copy someone else's style when you know you have your own. It just helps to have something to spark that style, and since I didn't have a treasured fabric or plate or something that designers like to use, I had to use this Bible.

My English written book came with several pages in German, though. Hopefully, they have resolved that problem. But I wasn't willing to part with it long enough to return it and wait for a new one to be sent, it has been a well used resource for my new home.
