Not quite sure if E-Design is for you? Are you wondering how on EARTH we can live hundreds, if not THOUSANDS of miles away from each other and I can still come up with paint colours and decorating ideas that suit you AND your home? It’s a miracle it happens at all. Just joking, it ain’t about miracles, it’s about EXPERIENCE.
Here’s what makes me so darned good at what I do (and terribly modest, wink wink)…
My Decorating and Design History
I spent 15 years doing local, 2 hr in-home consultations (as well as larger-scale projects). These consultations were geared toward giving homeowners the info they need re: paint colours, decorating ideas, home updates and product selection to get them off on the right foot REGARDLESS of their budget (approx 1500 in-home consultations). In the past 5 years, I’ve focused on E-design, also called Online Paint Colour Consulting, as a means to reach even more people in need of colour help. And as my business grew, so did my reputation, and as of this year, I’ve done well over 4000+ E-Design Consultations.
What does this mean?
It means I’ve seen it all. Layouts, countertops, flooring, tiles, cabinets, exposures, fabrics, fireplaces – you name it, I’ve probably seen it and suggested a FABulous colour for it.
I’ve seen the pretty, the ugly, and of course, the pretty ugly
I’ve also experienced every type of client. The confident, the desperate, the excited and the overwhelmed. The clients who have paint samples plastered on their walls and the clients who don’t even know where to start.
It also means that I’m on a first-name basis with HUNDREDS of paint colours – they are on a Rolodex in my brain. I know the inner secrets of these colours which in turn, helps me make recommendations that suit both you and your room.
And let’s just face it – I was born to do this.
So how does that experience relate to E-Design?
Let’s start with your photos. Your photos show me the space, decor and products that you’re living with. Having been in over 1500 homes locally and 4000 online, I’m bound to see features and challenges that are the same as or similar to homes that I’ve worked on in the past. That difficult wood tone? Seen it (owned it). The outdated kitchen cabinets? Yup. The layout and how one room might relate to another? Many times.
My extensive hands-on experience relates directly to the online work that I do. I don’t get into the science of things, there are other gals who do a GREAT job of that. I’m here to get you focused on your best paint colours with straight-forward, user-friendly advice.
Your questionnaire. When I read your Questionnaire, I’m getting a glimpse of your personal tastes and wishes – a little vision of your dream home/room. With the questions that I ask, you are invited to share with me what you like and just as important – what you DON’T like.
And while there are always surprises and new challenges, I’ve yet to find a home that I can’t handle, a home that won’t benefit from a little ‘KLC’. And keep in mind, there are thousands upon thousands of paint colours to choose from and every room has its own specific needs. And while there is no way to pick a paint colour that will look the same at all hours of the day (damn that sun), I can definitely get you on the right track and help you narrow things down to those few colours that are just right for you and your home.
