Color Consultant Services

Supportive Exterior to Interior design: Architectural color is key. Environmental Color is a specialty.

Since 1996 I’ve had the honor of serving as an architectural color consultant, “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.

I’m available for site visits in Sebastopol, Sonoma, Healdsburg, Marin, Petaluma and elsewhere. For the most part, locally this means in the “North Bay, CA,” north of San Francisco. I also offer my unique service Designer Color Palettes, which is perfect for on-site as well as “Long-Distance” consulting for homeowners, ‘HOA’ groups, and businesses.

Is there such a thing as “Too Much Information” about color?

There is a lot of information about color online and at paint stores. And with the thousands of options available, you can almost always pick a color you like from a small color sample. But have you ever experienced that once you get the color on your walls,  you did not like what you thought was your “favorite color?”

You are not alone in your color dilemmas. Don’t be embarrassed! This type of dissatisfaction is well documented. It’s also acknowledged—among the best color consultants in professional design circles—as being one of the main reasons their clients come to them looking for professional help.

Many people often find it frustrating to navigate all these options when selecting color palettes on their own. This is the case whether the subject is exterior or interior colors. What we call “color” is in fact level of physical “vibration” that we feel physically and emotionally. We may or may not actively recognize it. That is just part of the color equation. In fact, the well-meaning involvement of family and friends only adds further confusion.
