How to harness the power of Benjamin Moore color.

Interior designers and architects are big fans of Benjamin Moore paints, which offer innovative color selections, high quality and long-lasting durability. These products excel in providing decorative effects, which are becoming more subtle and elegant in tone and texture. They also ideally suit graphics and geometrics, which rely on vibrant colors that are clear and true.

Paint Style is a practical guide to using color and decorative effects for revitalizing a tired decor or providing a perfect finishing touch. Examples in the book show what many of the most popular finishes look like in "real life." Lesley Riva chooses the best of classic and contemporary work from leading interior designers.

More than 50 projects are included. Each one is rated by skill level and describes the techniques used, identifies the specific Benjamin Moore colors, and includes step-by-step instructions.

Paint Style also features:

Glazing, stenciling, stamping, geometrics, texture and faux finishes Essential skills and tips for success Technique lessons and tools of the trade Tips on using a color wheel and choosing a palette On-location photographs with detailed captions A glossary of color descriptions.

With its true-to-life professional examples, carefully set-out projects and insider tips, Paint Style provides both information and inspiration.
