Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Eiseman (Alive with Color, LJ 6/15/83) presents a comprehensive reference for the amateur and professional to use in choosing color schemes for interior decorating. She provides ways to identify responses to color, looks at color's use in creating a mood, and provides different settings that can help inspire color choices. The psychological, sociological, and historical meaning of each color is then detailed, as is its use in particular rooms. A good companion to The Color Book: 11,264 Color Combinations for Your Home (LJ 1/98); highly recommended for all interior design collections and public libraries.

Review

"Eiseman's book includes dozens of palettes (a main, or anchor color and three or four accents), organized in what she calls color ‘moods.’....The executive director of Pantone Color Institute looks at the emotional meanings of color, offers a test to help readers gauge their own reactions to particular shades and provides dozens of color palettes aimed at evoking certain moods in a room."

"A guide to learning how to create personal color choices to transform a room into something dynamic. From balance to crossovers, personal color moods and nature color moods, pages pair vivid colors with interior rooms and reflections on what happens when mood blends with interior decorating savvy. Both are excellent foundation references for aspiring interior decorators considering the special challenges of using and blending color choices."

"An expert's guide to choosing the right color combinations for interior design."

"Eiseman's book includes dozens of ready-to-use palettes (a main, or anchor color and three or four accents), organized according to what she calls color ‘moods.’
To turn a room romantic, for example, she suggests combining grayed tones of light blue, rose, pale green, and greenish white. For a sensuous mood, try scarlet, deep orange, light olive, purple and canteloupe."

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book, written by someone who is truly a “color expert.” After reading this book, you’ll be able to select a color scheme to create an intended effect. In my opinion, one of the most helpful aspects of this book was Ms. Eiseman’s list of 15 neutral colors listed on page 59. It’s easy for most of us to pick one or two colors that go together pretty well, but after that things get pretty confusing. These 15 neutral colors, which go with absolutely any color scheme, are wonderful for selecting colors from across the spectrum that will remain harmonious with any color scheme. And you might be surprised to find that colors like True Red or Midnight Navy are “neutral colors.” You will find lots of interesting details like this in the book.
Although this book is in and of itself an excellent resource, I don’t believe that it can be considered a complete resource without the reader also having a copy of the Pantone Textile Color Guide Paper Edition as its companion (and the author makes reference to that on page 173). As with any printed book, the colors of this book are not reproduced exactly as they were intended. However, the Pantone guide gives you a dead-on perfect rendition of the colors Ms. Eiseman cites in the book. This is important if you want to match up paint swatches or fabric colors to those in the book.

Lee Eiseman's book really helped me understand why certain colors and color combinations work in a home. Once you understand how certain colors affect you, then your decorating choices become clearer. This is a great book to have if you are buying a new home, remodeling, or simply redecorating. The Pantone color chips that are printed in the books are very helpful in illustrating various color combinations. I especially enjoyed Lee's rich descriptions of color.

As a Design Industry Education Specialist who gives over 70 design related workshops and educational events every year, this Leatrice Eiseman offering(now available in paperback too) is THE Top of my recommendation list.
Offering a simple defined test to allow you to select the colors best suited for your presonal mood and preference, whether for your home or work environment.
However COLORS FOR YOUR EVERY MOOD is soooooo much more!
With detailed descriptions and discussions about how each color affects the way we feel as human beings. Also discussion on how color combinations are effectively used to persuade the buying public, combat aggressive behavior, influence our appetites and more.
A wonderful preceeding read to the NEW "Communicating with Color" just out in the market now (another must read)!
Colors for your every mood gives exactly what it promises...colors for YOUR every mood. The detailed description of each color is fascinating and enthralling putting your specific colors into an interesting unique perspective.
I have had the opportunity to see Leatrice Eiseman in action on several occasions. She is a fascinating, education expert. This book is a close representation of experiencing her wonderful insight in person. One of the foremost color experts in the world shares and divuldges her vast color expertise and education for everyone.
Easy to read, in short bits or to completely digest in one sitting...(I always find it hard to put down) you will find yourself returning to this fascinating color reference tool time and time again...as your colors for your every mood change and evolve.
Kudos to Ms. Eiseman for creating a book that transends other color methodology and "boring textbook references", colors for your every mood is ALIVE with Color and full of color secrets that will change the way you experience color in your business, professional or home environment.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was a bit dissappointed in this book, for two main reasons and several minor ones.
As a usability professional, I had bought it for the psychophysical effects of color on humans. This was my mistake, it does not advertise itself for this but was recommended to me for this purpose by another individual. It does have some of this, but inconsistantly. As I am interested in color both jobwise and for decorating, I read it regardless.
COLORS WERE OFF IN CHIPS FOR PREFERENCE CHECK: The major thing I find fault with, was the color chips it uses in its test for personal preference, were poor representatives of the colors it was meant to represent. Ironically, there is a disclaimer on the book that this may not be a true representation, but I would think a book about color preferences should go out of its way to be sure this is done well. All the color chips appeared to be washed out. As I do not like pastels, I feel this "colored" my impressions significantly. Also I feel some were quite a bit off either too much yellow or green etc.
INDIVIDUAL COLOR SUBTOPICS INCONSISTENT: The other major complaint I has was that under the specific color topics (there were 11), the subtopics were inconsistent. If I wanted to compare the physiological responses of Red to that of Brown for instance, I would be out of luck as the subtopics from one color to another were not consistent. Some had one type of information and another had others. I also found the information provided on each color to be more of just a memory dump of information on each color and not necessarily entirely pertinent or stuff I would really want to know.
