Eve Ashcraft is a rare commodity in the design world, an expert on everything to do with color. For 25 years, her firm, Eve Ashcraft Studio, has consulted with designers, architects, private clients, and businesses on colors for everything from interiors, exteriors, and corporate branding to paint lines, yarn, and textiles.
Always expanding her exploration and understanding of color, Ashcraft has just released her first book, THE RIGHT COLOR (Artisan Books, Nov. 2011). A visual delight and smart primer, this definitive guide to color and paint distills her experience into eye-opening and approachable lessons.
Acknowledging the paralysis people experience in selecting colors from the thousands most paint lines offer, Ashcraft has created a finely-edited range of 28 colors that not only stand alone but work seamlessly with each other. In a helpful cross-pollination, THE RIGHT COLOR includes recommendations from The Essential Palette for wall, trim, and ceiling colors as well as suggestions for adjacent rooms. Eve Ashcraft Color: The Essential Palette is available through finepaintsofeurope.com..
