Summary In a book that is as inspiring as it is instructive, design professionals can learn how to use color to create interior spaces that support the health and well-being of all who live and work in them. The first and only practical guide to creating healthy interior design using color, The Power of Color provides a simple methodology and set of guidelines that can easily be integrated into professional practice. The book begins wide a concise, accessible refresher course in color theory. From there, the authors embark on a fascinating exploration of the healing properties of color as documented in the scientific literature. This is followed by in-depth, practical discussions of surface colors and lighting, the importance of using full-spectrum color in interior design and techniques for using full-spectrum color without compromising the design professional's unique sense of style or the demands of his or her clients.
