It’s not hard to spot television personality and interiors guru Moll Anderson in a crowd. Not only is she beautiful, but she’s often the most vibrantly dressed woman in the room. Her new book, Change Your Home, Change Your Life with Color (Post Hill Press, $35), explains it all.
The tome, which debuts this month, is Anderson’s fifth — and perhaps her most personal. It’s rooted in her idea of a color story: the psychological notion that we are drawn to and averse to certain colors based on our emotions, energy, experiences, and memories.
“The truth is,” writes Anderson, “when we look at a color, it’s not just with our eyes; we take in color as a full sensory experience.”
The book takes color theory to a whole new level: Each chapter is devoted to a different hue, complete with tips on how to incorporate color into your interior to well-researched information about the mood various colors elicit. One turn through the book, and you’ll be rethinking what your favorite color is.
There will be book signings at Forty Five Ten on Main Wednesday, March 8 from 4 to 6 pm; at Laura Lee Clark, Wednesday, March 29 and at Forty Five Ten Houston Friday, March 31.
