Guidance on paint colors and finishes

Residences:
On-site project analysis:
The process begins with a review of your objectives, color preferences, décor and space’s use. From professional 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 our final color selections during different times of day before making your final choice as light conditions greatly affect the appearance of colors. You can purchase sample pots of each color and paint test areas on your walls. Or, I offer 2 ways to help you finalize your selection.

∞ Color swatches can be mailed directly to you from the manufacturer. Sizes vary based on brand. Farrow & Ball does not offer this service. This service is included in the cost of your consultation.

∞ I can create custom painted sample panels of the colors you’ve selected. Additional charges will apply.

I will supply your color plan which details brand, line, colors and finishes. 

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

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

Fees: 
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.
