Color Consultation Services

1st Impressions Design can help you with paint color choices for your home's interior or exterior! Have you ever tried to choose colors based on a small color chip from your local paint or hardware store?  Have you ever regretted a paint choice you made and felt you had "wasted money" as a result? Do your fears about choosing the "right" paint colors keep you from moving forward? Do you find your home uninspiring because you stick to "safe colors" that don't reflect your taste or style? If you answered "YES" to one or more of these questions, I can help you with a tried and true process that will take the fear out of choosing paint colors for your home. As a certified color consultant, I have the experience, tools, and knowledge to help you create a custom color palette for your home.


Whether you're staging your home to sell or redesigning it to love where you live, painting your walls brings a great return on investment! The problem often lies in choosing the right color(s). Did you know that half of paint sales are due to homeowners repainting after making a mistake in color choice the first time? Why not save yourself from a costly mistake? As a certified color consultant, I can help you choose the best colors for your home!

Choosing paint colors for your home's exterior can feel scary, but 1st Impressions Design can help with a step-by-step process that takes away the fear and makes it fun!  Every home is unique, so what works for a friend or neighbor's home, may not work for yours. Let me help you choose colors that will enhance your home's style and also work well in your neighborhood.  You'll be amazed at how color can highlight your home's architectural details or even hide a problem area.  I consider everything from your home's permanent finishes to its setting, when helping you with your choices.  It's a COLLABORATIVE process, where I help you with my color tools, tips, and advice, so you can feel confident with your color choices!
