What exactly can an architectural color consultant do for you?
Hiring a color consultant is an investment in your most precious commodity: your home, your sanctuary. This is the place that holds your memories, your present, and your future within its walls. Having the right colors in the rooms where you start and end your day makes an incredible impact on the energy, comfort and warmth we all want from our homes.
That's where I come in: I can help you refine the current color scheme in your home to create an atmosphere that is true to you. Whether you're looking to have an environment that is warm and friendly, or cool and sophisticated, I can guide you through the process of discovering what fits perfectly with your space and your personal taste. Together, we will determine how to transform your house into your home.
If your home is for sale I can help you find appropriate, neutral colors that show off the beauty of your house while leaving room for a potential owner to envision his or her own personal touch. Color is a subtle yet powerful factor behind the sale of your home.
During our initial contact, either by email or (preferably) over the phone, I will gather some information about your project - type of service, square footage, time frame - discuss my fee and set up an in home consultation. We will schedule a time when we can tour your home, talk about your ideas and create a color palette specific to you. You'll be able to view my color suggestions - I have 8 ½ x 11 paint swatch samples to show you. We'll see how various color combinations will work on your wall(s), ceiling or floor.
After colors have been finalized, and upon collection of my fee, you will receive a set of color names, numbers, sheens and placement for you and your painting contractor. This will be emailed to you along with a paid invoice. This finalizes the process for you to now move forward and turn your vision into reality.
