Colour & Design Consultation

Professional Colour & Design Consulting Service - Fresh ideas that inspire!

All important colour decisions should be made in your space since colour is so affected by its surroundings and the site specific lighting which is why colour chips can look completely different at home then they do in the paint store.

Colour is subjective and personal so on site consultations help you find the perfect palette pulling together the many factors that impact colour choices including:
• Personal colour preferences
• Architectural & Decor finishes and styles
• Colour Balance
• Lighting
• Colour psychology
• Colour Trends

How it works
The Colour consultant meets with you on site bringing a collection of extra large colour boards so visualization is easy as she walks through the space with you taking in all the factors involved and coming up with a curated colour palette in consultation with you for your project.

Consulting Fees
$150/hour. 1 hour minimum fee. Prorated on the ¼ hour after the first hour.
What is included?
• 25% off discount will be applied to paint purchases & 20% off of Sundries with each in-home consultation.
• A colour chart will be prepared for you for your records.

Our in-home consultations allow you to view fabric samples next to your furnishings and in your home’s lighting conditions. By having the consultation done in your home, it is also easier to identify and solve any issues (i.e. problem-windows) while selecting the perfect window treatment. As window treatments are often the focal point of your room, we match your special window treatment to the room’s size and scale. As part of our in-home consultation, we will professionally measure your windows to provide an accurate fit for your custom window treatment. Expert colour consultations are also available to help you finish your room’s décor. Our consultation covers everything we need to find you the perfect curtains, from interior decor and fabric ideas to tracks, functionality, fit and budget.
