Transformed by Color

Color has a tremendous impact on memory and first impressions. It can expand or contract space, as well as draw you across rooms and into adjoining ones. Establishing purposeful color design throughout a home creates a sense of cohesion, while giving every space its own personality.

A little paint goes a long way, but even someone who loves color can find it difficult to choose which hues to paint one’s walls and furnishings.  There are SO many choices, right???

I had a great paint color consultation with a client yesterday . She knew the “look” she wanted but wasn’t sure how to make it happen.  After 2 hours and a brand new palette for one floor on her home, she is fearless and excited to watch the transformation that color can create.

I’ve been doing paint color selection for staging and design clients for many years now, and it is still just as exciting to see the results of a new paint color palette as it was when I first began offering this service. There is really nothing else that can dramatically change the look of a home more than the right paint colors, and I’ve spent my career honing and perfecting my skills in using paint to make my clients’ homes a happier place to live in.

    I really love this color but I find that most sources don’t tell you what that color is. Can someone out there tell me who makes this paint and what the color is?
