I think Suzanne Butterfield's book is prettier and explains his precepts even better than his own books. I have a DKC blue in my living room and a DKC green in my dining room and I love them. The paint companies would like you to think that you should try bolder colors, but they're hard to choose and they're not all beautiful colors you'd want to live with.

The person who wrote the review saying she was trying to get away from builder beige may not understand what these colors look like in person. They are anything but typical and boring. Donald Kaufman understands how mix colors with enough depth and luminosity that a neutral feels beautiful and not blah. I think Suzanne Butterfield's book is prettier and explains his precepts even better than his own books. I have a DKC blue in my living room and a DKC green in my dining room and I love them. The paint companies would like you to think that you should try bolder colors, but they're hard to choose and they're not all beautiful colors you'd want to live with. The DKC (and also Martha Stewart) palettes are limited for a reason. Not every color out there will look good up on your walls.

like owning it but didn't really learn a lot. But worth learning about the full spectrum paints if you can afford them. I like the attitude to light and bringing in the outdoors.

Mary at A&S BOOKS - Amazon Marketplace provided excellent, fast, reliable and friendly service. I ordered the book on Aug 16th, Mary mailed the book on the same day and my friend received it 4 days later. I gave the book as a gift to my friend who was returning to the Philippines. So to ensure that she received it before her departure, I contacted Mary to request update on shipment. Mary was very responsive and friendly and provided the details on the same day. I highly recommend this vendor!

The was an excellent follow up to Donald Kaufman's own book. I found it to be very helpful in extending DK's philosophy.
I got them for an excellent price, too.

This book provides a good introduction to Kaufman and the concept of full color. At the back of the book there are several pages of swatches that are labeled with the Kaufman paint numbers. (His paints have numbers rather than names which I find to be quite sensible because many of the names given to paint have the power to influence your feelings about the color.) These pages group colors that work especially well together, and the "palettes" illustrated here are referenced to full-size photos of rooms in the body of the book, so that you can see how the swatches look in "actual" room settings. I put quotes around the word actual because of course all of this is constrained by the limits of photographic imaging and offset reproduction. But, given these inherent limitations, the book is a good overview and introduction. There is no other place that I am aware of that you can see the Kaufman colors -- unless you decide to buy the expensive color cards. Based on the photographs in the book I felt confident enough to pick a color to sample in a pint. Given that you can pick up a used copy of this for less than a dollar, it seems a great value if you think you might be interested in knowing more but don't feel ready to buy a sample or a set of color cards.

I understand why many readers give this book a thumbs down; readers need a fine art background and strong understanding of color theory to follow this book. Must also understand the concept of full spectrum color mixing. (An artist does not use "brown" paint or "green" paint out of the tube, but mixes several hues to achieve a rich and realistic color.)

This book is addressed to the fine art/interior design audience, dealing with the following concepts in relation to interior space and paint color: full spectrum color, natural light in relation to color, cool/warm juxtaposition, value, intensity, contrast, balance, visually linking spaces to push/pull from space to space, choosing color based on the space, available light, ceiling height, room size, room function, etc.

This is a book to be READ, not flipped through for decorating ideas. (Some books are great for just flipping through but this one isn't.) This book boasts carefully written text along with beautiful spaces; historic, simple, subtle, bold, airy, strong, artful.

Along with the beautiful photography of many historic and high-end spaces this book explains WHY color choices were made. -- Bottom line: If you read the text, you will learn about color, allowing you to create a space you love. 5 stars!

I bought 4 books on color, and this is my favorite. I just bought a new house, and I had to choose a color scheme for the entire house. This is the book that de-mystified colors for me, and helped me through the entire process. The best part of this book for me is the "Forward". I could read it again and again. Another valuable thing about this book is the emphasis throughout on the surrounding environment of each room, and how this environment impacts the color choice. Wow! Thanks to this book I considered the view from each window and doorway when I chose my colors. I came up with an entirely different scheme than I would have had I not read the book.
Decorating certainly begins and ends with the color palette one selects. We have found ourselves puzzled continually over wanting to add color, but afraid to venture out.
This book, although the Donald Kaufman Collection is expensive to obtain, allowed us to get enough palette combinations together which we could then match up with color samples from our local paintstore.
It worked out great1 We're now in color all over the house and planning more! Great idea generator with wild, bold colors placed together. Excellent concepts on the flow of color throughout the house!
