On-site or virtual guidance on paint colors and finishes

Project analysis:
The process begins with a review of your objectives, color preferences, décor and space’s use. Whether your home is in the planning stage, already built or lived in for years, the process is the same. 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.

∞ Amy Krane Color can also create custom painted sample panels of the colors selected to help you finalize your choice . Additional charges will apply.

You will be supplied with a color plan which outlines paint 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 nationally, remote consultations are available for anyone outside of my immediate area. They begin 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 that fits your lifestyle. Large color swatches are mailed to you. The process requires participation by the client as we hone in on your final color palette.

Decor & Interior Design:
Paint colors are
 inexorably tied to the colors in your decor. Amy also advises 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. Amy advises on 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.
