Residential Services

What we can do for your home

Have you noticed when you pick out a paint color it never comes out the way you thought it would? Do you buy furniture, carpet, tile, or even door hardware and it looks right at the store, but not when you get it home? Allow one of our Certified Color Consultants to explain why this happens from time to time and help create the right look for your home. A residential color consultation can be as simple as one room or include the entire interior and exterior of the property.

Unlike an interior designer, a Certified Color Consultant provides you with the colors you are looking for and guide you through the process. We want to fully understand the feeling you are trying to achieve. Based on hue, chroma, and mood, we find a perfect color palette for the space. We work with nearly every paint brand and will create the perfect sophisticated palette that is unique and exclusive to you.

Once we have chosen a palette for one room or your entire home, we will build an electronic Custom Color Grid showing what colors go where and provide you with other details of what you need to know for touch-ups. The Custom Color Grid is a great resource to share with your painter as well, as it clears up much potential confusion and expedites the painting process. Whether you want to paint/remodel yourself or hire a professional, this grid will be your guide.

We want you to have a home you love and we consider it a privilege to help you bring your ideas and dreams of color to life in your space.
