Ladies + gentlemen:
I am elated to announce the addition of my first corporate client, SRH Paint Co. of Spring, Texas www.springbenjaminmoore.com. Owner Steven Hill operates this Benjamin Moore store, and we are collaborating with me now serving as his exclusive, full service color consultant.
Steven and his family have been in the paint business for decades, so his industry knowledge is expansive. His store manager, Daniel Ruiz, handles day-to-day operations and is extremely knowledgeable about paint mixing + the ins and outs of the industry. I am blessed to collaborate with this powerhouse of a team!
For my part, I just returned from advanced color training with world renowned Maria Killam www.mariakillam.com. (More about the True Colour Expert training with Maria is forthcoming in another blog post.) This partnership makes full use of my years of color training and experience across multiple industries and applications.
I'm essentially applying my years of experience in retail + fashion + cosmetics to the realm of home interiors + exteriors.
As stated, LFB Color (yours truly) is SRH Paint Co.'s exclusive color consultant. Not all paint stores offer this service, and they certainly do not all offer full service color consulting as we do.
You can either come to the store with your inspirations, fabric or tile samples, and color ideas for me to pull together paint palettes for you, OR you can hire me for an in-home color consultation.
What is a color consultant and why do I need one?
As a full service color consultant, I look not only at paint colors, friends, but also at all of the fixed elements (flooring, furniture that will remain in a room, countertops, sink fixtures, etcetera) in your home.
The goal is to create flow, or visual harmony, in your home by accounting for all of the undertones represented in those fixed elements.
Simply put, I only select paint colors that bring the rest of the elements of your home into harmony. I also have a curated selection of 100 hand painted color boards for use during in-home color consultations.
It is almost impossible to accurately specify color using a small paint chip, which is why we use the color boards.
During a consultation, I might make recommendations for replacing throw pillows, area rugs or other color "distractions." In some cases, I even recommend replacing some fixed elements where there are too many undertones represented in one area.
I also create at least 2 color palette options for you, my valued client, to consider. A good color consultant narrows down colors from over 4,000 to just a small handful of choices for every client.

Stay tuned here on the blog, as well as on my Instagram page www.instagram.com/lfbcolor, for tips on paint color, selecting palettes, color trends and home décor!
I cannot wait to continue the color dialogue with you, my friends.
Your chief color strategist,
