White hot for summer, white is not only the coolest color, it's white hot.
WHITE. It's pure, it's clean, it's fresh, it's uncomplicated. White is definitely a standout compared with other colors. "There is kind of an aura that white has today," said Leatrice Eiseman, consultant to Pantone, director of the Pantone Color Institute and author of "More Alive With Color" (Capital Books, $30) and other books.
“Use color to create comfort, space … Question: What color should my office be if I want to boost productivity? Answer: According to The Color Answer Book by Leatrice Eiseman (Capital Books, $30), there is no one answer to that question. Ms. Eiseman is the founder and director of the Pantone Color Institute and is a color consultant to many industries. She says that if you are evaluating color for your own office, your goal should be to seek out and use colors that raise your comfort level, ones that appeal to you. There is no "formula color that works every time in every situation."

In the book she extensively covers everything from clothes to accessories to makeup to hair color choices for women and as well - includes a very helpful section for men in which she makes recommendations that are realistic for the average non-metrosexual guy as well as being useful for a very fashion concious and elegant gentleman.
Included in the book are tear-out pages for each color group and for the neutral family making it extremely easy to choose flattering colors that coordinate with your complexion and existing wardrobe.
The best thing about this book is it not only beautifully takes into consideration coloring to choose correct colors - it also takes into consideration personality - and allows one to choose colors that both look beautiful on and make you feel wonderful! No more choosing colors you don't like because they are the correct warm or cool shade!Read more ›
The Colortime system organizes colors by how they appear during different times of the day: at sunrise, at sunset or in the sunlight at midday. Rather than dictate a particular set of hues as some other books do, Leatrice offers you a system to identify your best colors allowing you to build a versatile wardrobe that reflects you taste and personal style.
Leatrice incorporates crossover colors that work across all palettes and shares tips on how you can wear a favorite color even if it doesn't fall within your personal palette. The book includes removable pages for each color palette and the crossover color so that you can see how the colors work together and makes it easy to choose new colors to add to your current wardrobe. Best of all Leatrice shares a wealth of information on putting color together and includes her guide for goof-proof combinations.
Once you have an understanding of your personal colors Leatrice gives you the secrets to putting together a perfect look for any occasion. She also offers sound solutions for building a wardrobe and packing for a trip. One chapter offers practical advice especially for men that any man will be able to use regardless of his level of fashion sophistication.Read more ›
Ms. Eiseman provides three different palettes: Sunrise, a collection of clear, bright colors which occur naturally at dawn; Sunlight, the more muted colors of midday, and Sunset, which includes the vibrant oranges and reds seen at the end of the day.
These palettes are perforated, for easy removal when shopping. The quiz in the book makes it fairly easy to determine which palette is yours, but she has advice if you are stuck between two palettes.
Really enjoying this book, and highly recommend it.
I was disappointed in every way. There is no "meat" to this book at all. The criteria for choosing your colors are pedestrian at best. The first three questions are: Which colors do you like best - stated in three different ways. There are no examples of people in your color family and by their criteria I could easily fit into two of the groups and with very little stretch...the third.
It's a very short book and the ideas are never fully supported. It could have been expanded and made much better. Save your money on this one. I'm keeping it...so I guess that says something, but there's better stuff available.
The only plus is they reference Pantone colors for each of the swatches so that you can get an actual, correct color (IF you own a color fan, which I do <grin> BUT unless you are in a job that utilizes it, the average person would not have access to nor choose to purchase this pricey piece of goods.)
If you are buying this to help you with a new wardrobe, save your money and go for the old CMB.

Interesting perspective of color theory. I liked that she didn't just follow popular opinions. Her theory is built around warm, cool, and neutral which makes sense. Read morePublished on September 4, 2013 by Ladyslipper
