On-site or virtual guidance on paint colors and finishes

On-site or remote project analysis:
The process begins with a review of your objectives, color preferences, décor and space’s use. From professional large samples of Benjamin Moore, Sherwin-Williams, C2 or Farrow & Ball paint we’ll select a choice of colors for each room or building.

Testing Colors:
I strongly recommend you view the final color selections during different times of day before making your final choice as light conditions greatly affect the appearance of colors.

∞ Large color swatches will be mailed directly to you from the paint manufacturers. Sizes vary based on brand.  This service is included in the cost of your consultation when available. Neither C2 nor Farrow & Ball paints offer this service.

∞ I can also create custom painted sample panels of the colors you’ve selected to help you finalize your selection . Additional charges will apply.

I will supply your color plan which details brand, line, color and finish (sheen). A detailed color map can be supplied when needed for projects which involve complicated color placement. Hourly charges apply to create the map.

Remote, Virtual Color Consultations:
Available for clients nationally, this process involves your participation. It begins with an in depth conversation about your project. Through the exchange of photographs, available samples, floor plans or room sketches  I will develop a color plan for your property which creates the look, feel and ambience you are striving for. Large paper color swatches are mailed to you. Call for a more detailed description of the process.

Decor & Interior Design:
Paint colors are
 inexorably tied to the colors in your decor. I also advise clients on furnishing, fabrics, artwork, floors, countertops, kitchens and bathrooms,etc. 

Color affects people physiologically and psychologically. This means the right colors can affect how your employees feel in their work space and ultimately perform. Enable your business to stand out by using color to enhance your brand’s identity. Reinforce the function of your commercial space and your customer’s experience by choosing colors which promote the kind of consumer behavior you are looking for.

Staging is a powerful tool when selling real estate. I advise about paint colors as well as overall design, layout and decor.

Fees are calculated on an hourly basis giving clients the flexibility to control the scope of the collaboration. There is a 2 hr. minimum charge. Please inquire about rates. Travel charges apply to locations outside of a one hour driving radius from Ghent, New York. Payment is expected at the conclusion of the consultation by cheque.
