How does a Free Color Consultation Work?


By Roy Thomas - April 26, 2018

Recently, I pulled up in front of a home that stood out from the rest of the homes on the street, and not in good way.  The owner was ready to make her home look the way she wanted it, instead of what the previous owner had wanted, although, she wasn’t yet, sure exactly what that would be.  As she said, she knew what she didn’t like better that what she did. I took in the feeling of the home.  We looked at color combinations, discussed what she liked and more importantly what she didn’t like. Then we stepped outside to see what we were working with.  Things like brick siding and the roof are there to stay, so whatever decisions are made about paint color, they need to work with the existing elements. There are many choices within each color family. Sometimes choosing a brown that is a little cooler or a gray that is warmer can make all the difference.  The client pointed out several homes in the area that she really liked.  That was a huge help.  All of these homes had white trim, combine that with the white frame around the new front window and white was an obvious choice to replace the current bright blue.  We then narrowed down the siding color to two good choices that she could show to her husband so they could make their final decision together.

You would never recognize the house today.  It looks fresh, clean, and welcomes visitors with a feeling of unity and tranquility.
