Review by Library Journal Reviews

With over 20 years of experience as a color consultant, Ashcraft demonstrates, in terms amateurs will understand, the process of selecting colors. Using over 160 color photographs, she explains how light, texture, and juxtaposition affect the appearance of color and provides 45 color schemes shown throughout the home. Ashcraft also presents nine examples from her commissions and her own home to discuss her approach to color in historic and modern applications. In addition, each of the 28 colors in her recently developed house-paint line is shown individually with recommended color schemes. She concludes with advice on paint, other supplies, and painting a room. A practical, inspiring book. [Page 65]. (c) Copyright 2012.

Review by Publisher Summary 3

The definitive guide to paint by the nation’s most sought-after color consultantWhen Martha Stewart was developing her first paint collection, the Araucana Colors (based on the hues of her chickens’ eggs), she turned to the nation’s top color consultant: Eve Ashcraft. Eve helped Martha to pinpoint the colors of that enormously successful paint line, thus assisting in transforming an industry along the way. In her first book, The Right Color, her own curated palette (her paint line launches this fall) and countless other favorite shades and color combinations provide inspiration for every room in the house. Packed with trade secrets, such as how to make a small room look bigger, how to use color to brighten a space, and how to use paint to resolve myriad architectural challenges, this book will give anyone the confidence to choose a palette that will make the most of any space.
