Multcolib Research Picks - House History: Color Scheme and Design Books
Annotation:This book is more like a scrapbook than anything else: color and black-and-white photographs, reproductions of advertisements, catalogs, and newspaper articles are carefully arranged by date. Interiors, exteriors, floor plans, and building parts are all shown on nearly every page.

Several books have been written about the history of color design in the United States. Most focus on exterior color schemes, but some also discuss historic uses of interior color. Also, remember that the library's picture file (in the Art & Music Room on the third floor at Central Library) has many many files of pictures of house interiors, exteriors, and architectural details.
