Preparing for your Office or On-Site Consultation:
This is the part where your ideas, inspirations and direction for your project come in. Do you use Pinterest to gather ideas for color and design? I'd love to see that! Send me a link. Do you have color chips you are considering? Let's take a look at those. I also request that you text or e-mail me photos of the room we are considering before we meet. This really jump starts the creative process for me.
I prefer to work with Benjamin Moore or Sherwin Williams paints but I can also suggest more budget friendly alternatives.
On Site Consultations
Working with color should be fun, educational and stress free! My focus is to guide the color selection that works best for YOU!
On Site Consultation in the East Bay starts at $100/hour for interior consultation. The amount of time needed depends on the scope and detail of the project.
For projects in San Francisco and other areas outside the East Bay Area, feel free to contact me for a travel quote.
Interior: I start by having you text a few photos of the space/rooms you wish to work on so I can prepare a few digitally colorized photos for you to review at our consultation. This helps to better visualize different color options. We then move on to viewing large paint chip samples to narrow down a few options for you to test before making a final decision.
Exterior: Exterior consultations start at $300 for most residential projects. For commercial projects, please contact me to discuss the scope of your project to determine a quote. After an initial on site discussion, I will prepare 3 color palettes including digital renderings, placement guides and paint chips for each rendering.
All appointments include large color chips for you to keep, a paint sheen guide, my own paint color viewing and testing instructions, a discount of 30% for Benjamin Moore paints from a local retailer(for DIYer's), painter referrals, e-mail support, and online renderings.
I'm always excited to see the site after painting and ensure you are happy with the results. I also request to take "before" and "after" photos for my portfolio. Your name is kept confidential.
