A colour consultation by a Certified True Color Expert™ such as myself means you will get true value from your decorating, renovating and building budget because I can help you avoid costly mistakes.
Imagine the limitations to your home decor (and, your bank account!) if you pick the wrong colour for your permanent fixtures such as flooring and tiles. Even re-painting a room due to a wrong colour choice is frustrating and expensive.
The main tools of my colour consultations are my over 100 large 11 x 14 Painted Colour Boards.
Colour professionals know that having large real-paint samples of the colours they’re considering for a space is the single best way to determine whether these colours are right. A large PRINTED colour sample will not show how the colour changes in the light accurately. It must be PAINTED!
My colour board selection is made up of internationally known Colour Expert Maria Killam’s top Benjamin Moore neutrals, whites, yellows, greens, blues and the best of the dark colours. And, most importantly, they are classified by undertone, for example, the beige’s are separated into the following categories: Yellow-Beige, Pink-Beige and Green-Beige.
By holding the large painted boards up to a fixed element, such as a counter or wall tile, I can identify the undertone of that element. This information is crucial for picking paint colours for the walls or other fixed elements, such as a backsplash, which will work with the existing countertop.
This is vital because clashing undertones means you will never be entirely happy with your colour choices.
As Maria Killam states on her blog:
Properly identifying undertones ensures that the paint colours you select will live harmoniously together.
Improperly identifying undertones ensures the paint colours you select will fight with each other.
What to Expect During a Colour Consultation
After you book your two hour Colour Consultation, I will meet with you in your home and we will clarify your goals. Whether you have inspirational photos or fabrics or not, we will discuss your dreams for your space and how I can help you create the look and feel you are hoping to achieve.
With my large paint boards, I will accurately diagnose the undertones of the existing fixed elements in the space and help you choose the right neutrals and colours for the space.
I can help you choose new fixed elements for your renovated or new home and assess how your future plans should impact your choices. For example: if you are planning to sell your home in a couple of years, I can advise you how timeless and classic choices (and what those are!) for your fixed elements will have a direct relationship in how much the future buyer is willing to pay for your home.
I can also help you with one of the biggest challenges people have with their home decor, which is knowing how to create balance and flow and transition colours from room to room.
