Long Distance Color Consulting (Part II)

By |2018-12-19T16:11:08-04:00October 4th, 2015|Bathrooms, Bedrooms, Case Studies, Neutral Palette|

In this post I will be discussing "long distance color consulting" that I did for a client building a new house in the Adirondacks. It was too far to travel and we decided to choose colors not on the actual site.  It's a challenge because colors change in different lighting and all the things the client chose like tiles, bathroom fixtures, kitchen cabinets, etc. were things I would see only in pictures. She did have a few actual samples of tile for me to see which was very helpful. Part II is the discussion for [...]

A client called me to help choose colors for a house they were building in the Adirondacks. It was too far to travel and we decided to do what I call, "long distance color consulting". That is we chose colors not on the actual site. It's a challenge because colors change in different lighting and all the things the client chose like tiles, bathroom fixtures, kitchen cabinets, etc. were things I would see only in pictures.

Purple Master Bath

By |2018-12-21T09:36:48-04:00August 25th, 2015|Bathrooms, Case Studies|

How did we come up with a purple master bath? This was a new house construction. It was a large traditional house. We chose colors for most of the rooms  that were soft and subtle with a good flow from room to room. When we came to the master bedroom suite we continued choosing colors that were muted and soft, colors that went beautifully with the carpeting and bedding. But when we came to the master bath the client wanted something different, something that would stand out but not knock you out. She [...]

Making a Screened Porch Inviting

By |2018-12-19T17:01:13-04:00July 29th, 2015|Case Studies, Exteriors|

A client called me to help choose colors for a screened porch she was remodeling and painting to make it more inviting and more harmonious with the rest of the house. The porch came off of an open dining room/kitchen  with glass doors on one entire wall. The ceiling was a beamed wood ceiling and the client hated the closed in dark feeling the beams created. She investigated how to get rid of the beams without damaging the structure. The first order of business was to structurally remove the beams and open the [...]

I was asked to design a wall unit for a living room that included a media center. The client hated what she had on the wall and directed me to an use units from an Italian modular furniture company called Presotto. She sent me various catalogs to work from.

What Does A Color Consultant Do?

By |2018-12-19T12:55:43-04:00June 14th, 2015|blog|

What does a color consultant do? The short answer is a color consultant helps choose colors and create a color scheme that will compliment your home or business. Here's the longer answer. Color is the first element one sees or notices when entering a space. Choosing the right color is not easy and most people agonize over what to choose. And with the number of paint colors increasing daily that task can be overwhelming. A color consultant takes the guesswork and frustration out of  choosing the right colors for your environment. The first thing to [...]
