Why hire a color consultant for my home or workspace?

Fast. Easy. Affordable. Selecting colors from thousands of choices can be overwhelming. Listening to your needs and preferences, I carefully narrow down the color selection to several recommended palettes. This will save you time and eliminate costly mistakes choosing, purchasing and testing out the wrong paint colors & finishes. My service is perfect for clients on a budget, “do it yourselfers” or if you are “just stuck” on how to update or improve your space.

A colorful green Depression glass collection creatively arranged on a vintage shelf with a coordinated green wall background makes a great visual impact in a neglected wall corner.

Increase property value & create curb appeal. A color update can create a stunning first impression, both inside and out, whether staging property for sale or for personal enjoyment.

Color update to reflect current design trends. Using a fresh pair of expert eyes, I collaborate with you to create a unique customized space using current color & design recommendations while focusing on what’s important to you.

Select the right paint & sheen for your project. Not all paint brands are created equal! Custom colors & finishes are sometimes the best choice, in other spaces a great quality paint color is all that’s needed.
