Since 1996 I’ve had the honor of serving as an architectural color specialist, consulting, “exterior to interior” with homeowners and business owners like you, all across the country. You’re here because you’re interested in enjoying the benefits of using color to create a positive experience in how you feel and function wherever you live, work, and play. That’s what I mean by “Environmental Color.” It’s about making your personal environment more healthy and enjoyable, supporting and inspiring you in your home environment from exterior to interior.

Start here for your best color and design decisions for your home and workplace. Paint color is not the only subject. Our expert help makes it easy. Your creative design decisions are for any product or material that has “color,” including natural color as the source.
