How do you, as a client, benefit from hiring a True Colour Expert?
Over the course of our training, we’ve developed our ability to understand and to clearly identify undertones, which is the main reason most people get colour wrong – this includes design professionals. Although most designers feel confident playing with general colour, when it comes to choosing the perfect wall colour out of the thousands of available options, there is often doubt and fear of making a mistake. The sheer number of designers who attend Maria’s courses throughout North America is an attestation to that fact.
Through this training we’ve also honed our colour vocabulary to be able to clearly communicate the best colour choices to our clients. It’s so important for our clients to understand why we chose a specific colour for their walls, we don’t expect anyone to trust us blindly. If we aren’t able to communicate, in simple terms, why the paint colour we’ve chosen is perfect, then we probably don’t know why it is – which means it might be wrong.
Lastly, by using Maria Killam’s large paint samples, we’re able to confidently demonstrate to our clients that we’ve made the right decision – and they’re actually able to see it. After using larger samples for the last two years, we don’t know how we ever got through a consultation without them. With these 11″x14″ hand painted boards, our clients are actually able to see what we’re talking about when we say “That grey is too pink.” or “That white is too yellow.”
