A professional color consultant will give you fabulous results, while saving you time, money, and work.

Do you have a room that just doesn't "feel right" but can't figure out why? Have you ever bought the "perfect" paint colour, only to be disappointed at how it actually looks on your wall?

Color is the single most important visible element of any design. It's no wonder that people agonize over it. Choosing the right color can be a daunting task; choosing the wrong one can prove to be frustrating.

With so many paint colors and finishes to choose from, it makes sense to hire someone who can take the guesswork out of the equation and create the color palette that is right for your space and your lifestyle.

A trained color expert knows how to accomplish the result you are seeking, whether you are painting a room, remodeling a space, or looking to improve your home's curb appeal.

Why you should consider hiring a color consultant for your next decorating project:

  1. Whether your taste runs toward trendy or traditional, a color consultant will create color schemes that will enhance any room design, taking the room's walls, trim, ceiling, and other architectural features into consideration.
  2. A consultant is knowledgeable about the various paint products on the market and can recommend the right ones for your project.
  3. A consultant will work with your existing furnishings and accessories if you're not planning to replace them. A fresh coat of paint makes any space look new, and the right color combinations can unify existing elements.
  4. A color consultant will work with you on large or small projects, whether you will do them yourself or plan on hiring a professional.
  5. Your favorite color may be blue; but what is the best blue for your bedroom? All colors have undertones that may not be apparent to most people. A trained expert can correctly identify which undertones are compatible.
  6. Color consultants understand the psychology of color, and know how to achieve the highly desirable and harmonious color flow you seek for your home.
  7. Colors look different under different lighting conditions. A color consultant understands this important factor and how paint colors absorb light, and will make sure that the romantic red you pick does not end up looking orange.
  8. A color consultant will collaborate with you to ensure you get the result you want to achieve the first time.
  9. A color professional knows how to "dress" your home with color, inside and out.
  10. ​Not only will a consultant find the best colors for your home based on functionality, your lifestyle, and your personal taste, he or she can also give you great decorating ideas that you can apply to any space.
