What Are The Best Resources To Study Color From An Interior Design-Specific Perspective?

I've been coming up with a palette for my apartment, but in the process discovered I'm insanely infatuated with the mechanics and psychology of color.
I'm curious to hear from professional interior designers on Metafilter who can point me to the best ways of studying color, understanding it's uses, and also some of the problems you face when designing homes. Ideally, any books you consider essential to color and ID, reference works, barring the usual "go to paint store site and play with the software therein" would be very appreciated.
I realize there's a lot of askme threads on this, but I'm ideally hoping I can hear from interior designers specifically about this topic. References to room approaches, color psych, light effects, etc. are most welcome.
