You need COLOR Part 1: All about the home

You need me. I’ll say that again. You need me.

People always tell me how cool, fun and creative my work is once I explain it to them, but my challenge is in communicating the RESULT of the work I do and its BENEFIT to clients. Having a creative job makes my life interesting and it brings smiles to clients’ faces, but what matters most is how I help clients to make their lives better in some way.

My work in color consulting encompasses three key areas: home, business and fashion (via personal color analysis). This blog series is broken into three parts, to explain once and for all what exactly I do in each of these three areas.

Let’s launch into part 1 of my work; that is, color for the home or office. That is going into a residential or commercial property and selecting every single color surface in the place, or at least the surfaces needed to bring the whole space into alignment. Sometimes it involves a simple exterior siding color. Other times I go into a full remodeling project and need to specify counter tops, flooring, fixtures, accent colors and paint.

When do you need my help? The simple answer: You need me when you are tired of looking at endless carpeting and tile samples, along with the 2,579 paint chips you brought home to “test.” You need me once you’ve exhausted yourself overthinking and aren’t making any real progress.

I SAVE YOU HOURS of TIME, ENERGY and FRUSTRATION in this process.

We narrow down color choices together and I bring your entire space into flow and visual harmony. Together we create color palettes for the space, make final determinations for paint and flooring, and even review accent colors and fabrics where needed.

I BRING YOU PEACE OF MIND IN YOUR OWN HOME OR OTHER SPACE.

Do you know that failure to create color flow in your home will actually affect you mentally and physiologically? This is scientifically substantiated. Just do a Google search using keywords ‘color’ and ‘psychology’ and ‘physiological effects.’ Proper use of color in the home or office creates balance, peace and a sense of well-being. Color can overwhelm and confuse just as easily as it can calm and soothe the mind. Let me get it “right” for you.

I MAKE YOU HAPPY IN YOUR OWN SPACE

when we select colors that resonate with you, ones that look like they belong in each room and corner of your home, and ones that express your aesthetic. I choose color schemes that bring you JOY.

I SAVE YOU THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS

especially when selecting hard surfaces such as marble, tile, wood and granite. These materials REALLY do need to be sourced properly factoring in color scheme.

I HELP YOU SELL YOUR HOME MUCH FASTER AT MARKET VALUE…………

Let that one sink in. There is no one standard color that can sell your home, contrary to what you may have heard. Each home is unique in terms of the surfaces contained within. Let me select the best colors that are neutral enough to appeal to buyers AND that coordinate with all other surfaces.
