Color Reactions

October 10, 2007

I had the nicest call from a recent color consulting client - who just wanted to say how much he and his wife enjoyed the new exterior colors we chose for his home. His neighbor (who had referred him to me) was outside and commented how nice both of their home colors looked next to one another.

He was pleased that I was able to assess each person's color preferences and then fit them harmoniously into the neighborhood.

Exterior House Color

Yesterday I was called back to a client's home to check on the paint color that we had chosen a month ago. He was updating his home to put on the market - and both he and his realtor needed some feedback on how it turned out -- along with some finer details of trim color placement.

As I drove up to the house (in Seattle), my first thought was: "Wow, what a difference new color makes!" His realtor and I spoke about how to best use the trim color to hide some architectural flaws and came up with a solution that will do the trick. Both homeowner and realtor were very, very glad to get my reaction to the new paint color.

The realtor had originally called this little house an "Ugly Betty" -- but with new color, it's rapidly become a "Beautiful Babe"!
