If you are interested in colors in design, I can recommend a good book,

"Design Elements: Color Fundamentals" by Aaris Sherin, it is relatively
recent book (2012) and in my opinion nicely written and good
introduction into color theory and design without being overy
"technical" and with lots of modern illustrations.

You can probably make a distance loan through your city or university
library (don't know how it works in Greece, but I guess similar as in
rest of EU).

Otherwise search on Joseph Albers and Johannes Itten. Itten's book "The
Elements of Color" is now out of copyright I think, since it is very
old, so it is maybe possible to find it on the web for free; but I would
suggest Sherin.
