Great book of color combinations. You can use it to combine your primary color choices, secondary, and tertiary colors. I used it for quilting fabric color choices. Look at this book before you decide what colors to paint your house or interiors. Divides colors into browns, blues, reds and pink, yellows, etc., while showing tones and value. Very useful!

I was thinking about color schemes for months and couldn't come to a decision. I looked at this book a couple times for about 15 minutes each time and found exactly the combination I wanted. This book was incredibly helpful.
