Strategies for Choosing Paint Colors

I was on Pinterest early yesterday morning, and I noticed a popular pin about how to choosing paint colors.  Since I am a Paint Color Consultant, I am always looking for new ideas about such things, of course.  I went to the site and read a post by a blogger describing three strategies to use […]

What’s the Complexion of Your Home?

The bulk of what I do is Paint Color Consultations.  Something just hit me the other day and made me kinda laugh out loud (sitting by myself like a psycho).  As many neutral paint colors that I specify for clients’ homes, I have NEVER used a neutral paint color in my own homes.     […]

Does Dark Paint Make Your Ceiling Appear Lower?

Sometimes in Paint Color Consultations, I suggest a dark paint color for a ceiling in certain rooms.  Most people think that paint colors for ceilings should always be light, right?   Dark paint colors for ceilings used to be a hard sell, but luckily I’ve built up enough street cred that most believe me now […]

As a Paint Color Consultant, I do lots of blue bedrooms – it’s true.  Occasionally it’s a greige, once in a while a green, possibly a grayed lavender, but by-and-large I help my clients choose just the right blue for their bedrooms.  I guess that’s because it’s peaceful, calming, soothing – when it’s just right.

How I Reclaimed a Bunch of Hours a Week

Over the last week, something amazing happened.  Because of this amazing thing, I went to a hot yoga class (not once, but twice) after not working out in over a year.  I also got my hair cut, which I also haven’t done in over a year.    Pinterest  

Chaotic Color? How to Make It Flow

Interior Color Palettes Are Not Created Equal

I work with multiple clients every week helping them establish color palettes for their home. Some people may think that paint color consultants/specialists have a few pre-established color palettes that they pull out, any of which will work in a given home.

Creating Heaven on Earth: The Right Paint Colors for Belgian Chic

To paint or not to paint?  That is the question and the debate between wives and husbands throughout the land.  Here is a stunning example of when painting the woodwork (and brick) is the RIGHT choice.  Painted Brick   This client knew what she liked – I mean she REALLY knew what she liked.  So […]
