Color Consultation Design Service

Paint is an easy and inexpensive way to transform your home.  It can personalize your space and evoke the mood and feel that you are yearning for.  Have you ever excitedly headed out to a home improvement store to pick out paint swatches?  Maybe you brought an inspiration piece (like a decorative pillow) to find colors to coordinate perfectly (or so you thought).  The excitement can quickly wane when the swatches appear to be a completely different color in your space or worse yet you have the paint mixed before seeing the color swatch in the room to be painted.  The back and forth can be exhausting.  Mistakes equal a waste of time & money and that can be very disappointing.

When you choose to hire Sheri of Designing Dreams on a Dime as a Color Consultant, you are bringing in a designer eye with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Architectural Illustration.  Her knowledge and experience with color will make choosing colors much less stressful.  The Color Consultation will take place in your home where the lighting will reflect appropriately.  The size of the room(s), orientation of the home, flow, and existing furniture and other finishes will be considered.  Thousands of colors will be narrowed down to the perfect combinations that will richly enhance your space(s). 

Color Consultations are encouraged, but not limited to those who are changing the décor of their existing home, purchasing a home in need of a transformation to suit their style, or new construction.  Experience in interior and exterior color selections.

Sherwin Williams has been wonderful in educating me about their products and have equipped me with a fabulous designer color kit.  This kit allows 4 x 6 Sherwin Williams paint swatches to be handed to you during the color consult and 8 x 10 swatches can be shipped free & quickly. Benjamin Moore, Valspar, and Behr color fans are also available.

Color Consultation Fee:  $150.00 (one consult, unlimited rooms and color combinations)
       *Interior Décor and Landscape Design available.  Inquire for more information.
