Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I hire a color consultant?

A color consultant is trained to see colors that will coordinate with your decor and hard finishes.  We can very quickly identify the existing undertones and help you create the look and feel you want without testing many paint colors on the wall. When you hire a color consultant, you won’t need to re-paint your walls or live with carpet or counters that don’t look right.  The following are two articles about color consultants that you might find interesting:

How do I take photos for the consultation?
It’s simple:  Photos should be taken in natural daylight between 9 am and 3 pm, without flash or artificial lights.  All room lights must be turned off for photos. This is optional for an in-home consultation, but it might give us extra time to evaluate more spaces.
What if I have more questions about the color consultation before I sign up?
You can Link to our Contact Us page, email michelle@colorconcierge.com or call 303-881-0709.
How can you see our colors by email and online?

We are trained and skilled at seeing colors in photos.  In fact, it is often easier to see undertones in a photo than in person.  We often take photos during our in-person consulting sessions so that we can refer back to them later.

The key to using photos is that they need to be taken with natural light, in the middle of the day, without flash or artificial lighting.
