Color Consultation is a great way to layout your space before putting anything to paper, or in this case, your wall. With our new on staff Designer Diane Harrington, we are now able to offer this great service to our clients.
What does a Color Consultant do for me?
What a great question, I am glad you asked! A Color Consultant is here to help you bring your space to life through a vision you may have and do not know how to put into play, or by giving their input from what we are working with. Diane enjoys working with pieces already existing in a space, “I like to work off of the most important piece in a room, usually this is something that will not change through the years…it is a great way to focus your idea.” While working off of a piece, Diane also likes to use undertones of colors. There are many ways to run a color consultation, and each client and consultant will be different, please keep this in mind.
Break it down
What happens during the consultation? Consultations can range from $85.00 to $200.00 per hour. Our cost is $95.00 per hour. During the hour we want to get into your space, talk about what you are trying to accomplish, and figure out your style by asking a few simple questions you probably never thought about. This is when you tell us how much help you need from us because we do not want to make your feel influenced or pushed to do something that you would rather do yourself. Once we have come to a good meeting point, we like to bring out paint chips, fabrics, materials and any pieces you are looking to get inspiration and style from. This helps both the client and consultant see everything together and how things will look in the lighting of the space (which is very important to keep in mind)! Everything is going to look different in your space compared to a showroom or picture. Make sure when you are picking out anything for your room, that you are able to bring a sample of the colors. Something that looks green with a hint of blue in a showroom could look completely green in your space and through off the whole scheme.
