Counter To create classic country color schemes and breathtaking combinations, look no further than this foolproof guide! Pictures of rural houses, by a leading photographer of interiors, show ideas put into beautiful practice, while pages of actual paint chips make it remarkably easy to select the precise and perfect shades for your own home. Room after room is decorated in irresistible colors, some drawn straight from nature, and others (such as red-and-white gingham) have become familiar and beloved over the years. Bring warmth and comfort to any space with earthy greens, browns, golds, and terra-cottas, or brighten up with the clean, fresh shades of seaside and summer skies. A pastel garden palette of rose and peony, lavender and lady's mantel, and apple and cherry blossom all provide endless inspiration. You'll come to understand, as you admire the photographs, why these colors work so well and how to use them. Plus: fail-safe combinations for simple success!
