Got a Case of Color Paralysis and Anxiety...

If there’s one thing that creates utter fear and panic when decorating, it’s the process of choosing the right paint colors!

100,000 colors to choose from! But which one is right for the space?
THE DIAGNOSIS: Color paralysis - frozen in fear of using paint color inappropriately. But we make color choices every day - and often with confidence. We may be able to dress ourselves, the children and our husbands, but an entire wall of color can be irrationally intimidating. It seems so easy to get it all wrong, so you freeze, right! Breathe easy, don’t panic!

A Color Consultation can make create a feeling and an ambiance in the room that had none!
f you're losing your way in the quest for color, agonizing over countless paint chips that are now looking all the same and overwhelmed at the amount of time you're spending on indecisiveness, then you'd be wise to enlist the help of a color consultant. If you think this might be too expensive, think again. The cost of a color consultation will save you countless hours of time in repainting when you don't like it and find you've made a colossal mistake in the color choice.

A Color Consultant should supply you with color sample cards clearing up any confusion.
THE TREATMENT PLAN: in a little over an hour, the color consultant visits you in your home, takes an overview of your spaces, your lifestyle and your personality. From this discussion, the consultant develops a painting strategy that will tie everything together by:
*enhancing your home's decor through the use of well-chosen paint colors for the walls, ceiling and trim

*creating a beautiful space making the most of your existing furnishings and your homes architectural features
*developing an entire color plan which you can work on room by room over time or all at once 
The family plan!
A simple game plan, uniting the home's interior colors with the family spaces.

At the end of the color consultant’s visit they should leave you with a sample color card of each of the colors chosen.  You will also receive a “color specification sheet” so you and your painting contractor will know exactly where and on what surface each color is to be painted, trim, ceilings, niches, baseboards, windows, the paint sheen, etc. etc.
This knowledge goes a long way in keeping the paralysis and anxiety at a minimum!
