Using the custom color consultation services from exterior-house-paint-colors.com is like having an insurance policy.
The uncertainty of how a color will translate from chip to façade will be gone, and you will reap immediate benefits as you watch the applied colors transform your house from “?” to “fabulous”. You will have the "wow" house in the neighborhood. I've seen it happen time and time again. After I put together a palette for a home and it is completed, the house in question often is the topic of discussion locally amongst other people who are thinking about painting their home; i.e. "have you seen...?" The local paint store becomes inundated with questions about said house. Basically your house becomes the buzz du jour.
Of course most people will pass by with nary a notice...but for those folks in the market for a new paint job, believe me, they are out and about looking at houses in town for inspiration.... you will be admired to be sure.
I've helped many average homeowners who thought they couldn't afford custom design services. My answer to that is you can't afford not to have them! Painting a house is a big endeavor and not to be taken lightly. It's a project most likely contracted out so that means $$$. It's also something you will live with for at least the next 5-7 years so it had better be good or you will be reminded of that each and every time you pull up into the driveway.

My formal training is in the field of interior design where I hold a degree in the Applied Science of...I graduated cum laude. I've also been an award winning fine artist for many years, studying with some of the greatest contemporary colorists such as Daniel Greene and Wolf Kahn. The combination of my practical experience and theoretical knowledge makes me unique in the world of color expertise...and now I’m going to make my knowledge available to each and every one of you!
A few short years ago, I was chained to a small area near my home base in which I could serve clients. Of course I could always hop a plane for a consultation but the logistics of that are less than optimal. Today with restricted baggage options, dragging my thousands of color chips with me to a remote site is not easy.
But now with the power of digital photography and email, I can help anyone just about anywhere. Of course, there is no substitute for being on-site and for those customers willing to go the extra mile, travel arrangements can be facilitated; contact me via form mail below. For most folks though, electronic communication will serve them well.
OK, so what do I get in a
custom color consultation?
First I start with a questionnaire which helps me to understand you, your home, and the dreams and aspirations for it. I also have you send me a digital photo or two for reference. While it is not accurate for color, it helps me tremendously understand the scale and placement of your home...two areas I find that clients have the most trouble communicating...
and which are essential.
I look at many factors when evaluating your home and suggesting a color palette. You will be issued a detailed report which will consider and include:
All of this, the culmination of my years of experience and training for $425. The cost of painting an average home in some parts of the country will exceed $10,000.00 this year
For 4.25% or less of that cost it's short money to get a solid and workable color palette which will respect the integrity of your house while providing distinction and style...worth every penny and not someting you can do yourself.
Don't rely on the painter for advice in this area...they know what looks good but then again so do you. Because they work with paint all day doesn't mean that they will be able to take your unique combination of materials, location, scale, orientation and wishes to create a personalized plan.. They are not trained in color, color theory, or design and composition. Most likely they will give you somebody else's color scheme, a watered-down, boiler-plate solution or something right off a paint chart. When it comes to paint colors, it's good to remember that everyone's got an opinion but they're usually not qualified opinions.
You've read this far so I know you don't want something that's just average...you are looking for distinction and personal expression of style, something only an experienced specifier can provide.
