Coleen can help you choose the right colors for your home’s paint even if you are not one of her interior design clients. Whether it’s interior, exterior, or both, and you are going to do the work yourself, Coleen can give you professional advice that will help you avoid expensive (and ugly) mistakes!
There’s more to it than most people realize. What type of paint should you use (Latex or oil)? What should the finish be (flat, eggshell, low sheen/satin, semi-gloss, or gloss)? Is the off-white you choose going to be a little too pink? Or too green? What about the beige, maybe too yellow? What if your red accent wall turns out to look like it belongs in a circus fun house? What color should the ceiling be? What about the window trim and baseboards? What about the crown molding?
Thanks…Coleen…the colors are yummy, very bold and I love them. They have finished the office, put a little on the kitchen and family room walls and are just starting on the kitchen nook. Very exciting! C.M., San Diego
I have been walking on cloud 9 because I am so happy to have a color plan for my home. It has been 5 years of wondering and making mistakes. I just wish I would have found you years ago! B.B, San Diego
I wanted to thank you for your color consulting and your professionalism and honesty. I started painting the kitchen and I simply love the colors. I am planning on completing the work for all rooms by the end of Aug. and I will call you and make an appointment for decor ideas. Hope you are doing well. I.L., Lakeside
