Why would you not want to save time & money?

Save time and money with a paint color consultant – Scenario – You have made a decision to repaint your house, when you bought your home 5 years ago it was freshly painted an off white. The years have gone by and you have become tired of the off-white. You watch a few DIY home shows and decide, no problem I can do this myself. You head off to your local paint store and find the perfect paint chips take them home and “what were you thinking”? So you head back to the store to try again, and again, and again. Finally you make a decision and you buy a sample pot. You paint a nice neat square on your wall and OMG “it is nothing like the paint chip” so back to the store for another sample pot, and another, and another.

The question is what is your time worth? Not to mention the sample pots? DIY home shows tell you, you can do it, but really do not tell you how to do it. Paint color consultants however, are educated on color and have years of experience. The hours, days and weeks it takes you, it takes a trained paint color consultant just a few hours.

The testimonial America’s Color Consultants gets the most is “The best $250 I ever spent”

Color Trends

Noir – Last week I attended the Sherwin Williams ColorMix presentation. The palette of colors which made the biggest impression for me, was the “Noir” collection. It is inspired by night. The darker colors in this collection are not for the meek, however if you have a small space (a powder room or den)  and you would like to be daring these colors are rich and bold. They remind me of rooms I have visited in Europe.
