WHY IS IT SO DIFFICULT TO CHOOSE A PAINT COLOUR?
Anyone can rarely claim they have done it all the time. It’s hard to choose paint colors. There are many factors to consider when choosing a color. What direction are my windows facing? What amount of natural light is in the room? What furniture does it need? Do I want to coordinate the flooring pieces with the need to have a warm or cold undertone? Will it look the same under artificial lighting? What if it is too dark? Is it too dark?
It’s not surprising that we all can get into a tiz about this.
First, take a deep breath and remember that you’re not the only one stressing about paint color. It’s not easy to get it right, so take a break.
A Colour Consultant could be the perfect solution.
It is true. You will save time, stress, and money.
Do you prefer to pay PS60 to get the paint color the correct first time, or do it yourself and run the risk of getting it wrong? Would you rather spend hours comparing samples or decide in an hour?
You will get expert advice and the conviction to complete your project. The process will be enjoyable as you and I spend time exploring the possibilities.
HOW DOES IT WORK
Book me for a consultation if you are only tackling one room. I will come to your home and talk about the room. I will ask lots of questions about your plans for the space and the atmosphere you want to create. Based on the room’s orientation, light quality and other items that we need to coordinate, we will discuss any limitations in our color choices. Then, we will get out the paint charts and start brainstorming ideas. We will then find the perfect color for you, and I will be able to advise on matching colors for ceilings or woodwork. The session will be followed by a detailed painting schedule that includes all the information I need.
First, I will visit your home for a free inspection and discuss your ideas. Then I will follow up with a quote for the whole home color scheme. This includes wallpapers and paints colors for each room and ceiling and woodwork colors. Following the meeting, I will provide a quote for your project. We will schedule an in-depth consultation to discuss each space if you are ready to move forward. Then I will spend two weeks designing your palette and delivering it to you in a digital design. We can also revise any color you don’t like, and I will email you a detailed painting plan with all the information you need.
These services are available in Southampton, parts of Hampshire, and Dorset. Please get in touch with me to find out where you are.
We can arrange a virtual consultation if you live far from me but still want expert advice on color. This is great for individual rooms.
