at Paint the Town Green
There's no denying that colour is hugely impactful and clever combinations can be the secret ingredient in creating successful, design-led spaces. With years of experience painting client's homes, our creative consultant will help bring your space to life through well-considered colours that reflect your individual style and personality.
What is Colour Consultancy?
You may see a colour you like on Instagram and be unsure how to incorporate it into your scheme so that everything works cohesively together. Or you may have a whole house which is being redecorated and choosing a colour and finish for every surface is overwhelming. From your walls to woodwork through to ceilings and joinery, there’s a lot to specify and we’re here to help.
Our colour consultant has had enormous success helping our clients create beautiful schemes which optimise their space – making bold choices they may have been nervous about or finding paired-down solutions that aren’t boring. We work with you to create a palette that represents you and your unique style.
Who we work with
We draw colours from several different brands to create bespoke palettes that are as individual as you. Not being married to just one brand allows us to give unbiased opinion on what could truly work best in your space. We have five preferred partners who we use in our consultations:
- Edward Bulmer
- Little Greene
- Paint and Paper Library
You will have a wide range of choice that your colour consultant will help to narrow down and bring together into a well-rounded scheme that flows from room to room. All of these interior paints are low VOC (fume level) and water-based but they vary in terms of ingredients, production and footprint. If you’d like to know more about their eco credentials, please look at their websites and technical specs.
HOW IT WORKS
Colour consultancy is available to both decorating & non-decorating clients at different prices. The consultation is an hour long, during which our creative consultant will walk through your space with you and make suggestions and decisions on your unique palette, using a variety of colour cards.
You will discuss important factors that will impact the colour choices such as preferred use of space, natural and artificial lighting, the atmosphere you’d like to create and any inspiration you might already have, in order to ensure that the suggestions are well-considered and cater to your needs.
You will then receive a PDF detailing the colours and finishes specified per room with links to the paints to view & buy online.
Decorating clients: For clients who choose to use us for their painting & decorating projects, we charge a reduced rate of £125 per hour consultation. Subsequent hours (for larger spaces) are also charged at £125.
Non-decorating clients: We charge £180 for the initial consultation which lasts approximately an hour, with subsequent hours charged at £180 per hour.
*We cover up to an hour's travel within London. If you would like to explore a consultancy via Facetime, please do get in touch as this is an option.
