The Little Book of Colour by K Haller
If like me you love colour, you may be on the lookout for new books to read on the subject. I recently came across the Little Book of Colour – but as my bookshelves are full, I decided to download the kindle version of this book.
This book styles itself as “the definitive guide to using the power of colour to improve your happiness, wellbeing and confidence.”
Building on over 20 years of experience, Applied Colour & Design Psychology Specialist Karen Haller puts this life-changing solution in the readers hands. With her unmatched expertise, she demonstrates the many practical ways in which you can use colour to transform your life. Whether you’re decorating an interior or revamping your wardrobe, she will give you ideas to be inspired by the possibilities to:
–Create a home that reflects your personality
-Grow your confidence in using colour
-Add colour to your workplace
-Choose clothes that express the true you
-Find your unique colour palette & design compatibility
It claims to be the first book that mixes the science, psychology and emotional impact of colour, with Karen Haller taking you on a journey through rediscovering the joy of colour.
So what did I think of the Little Book of Colour?
I found this book nicely written and easy to read – finishing it with two easy sessions in the evening. I can’t say that I learned anything new – but it’s a nice book to read if you are relatively new to the topic and a good refresher if you haven’t read much on colour psychology recently.
I did find it somewhat repetitive. There is obviously quite a bit of crossover between personal colour, the clothes in the wardrobe and the colours that you use in your home and at work…never-the-less, I didn’t feel I’d wasted my money or my time.
The hardback version was just £5.49 plus P&P at the time of writing and kindle £7.99. You can get a copy here. Enjoy!
