INTERIOR PAINT/HARD FINISH COLOR

Paint and Hard Finish selection is where most people spend the most time stressing over the right color, and getting the color right the first time can save time and money. Color can be tricky, especially when matching up neutrals. Certain neutrals cannot be mixed, and certain colors cannot be mixed with certain neutrals.

In addition, some hard finishes have such a “bossy” pattern, that they completely dictate the color for your space.

You need the right paint and hard finish colors that relate to the existing neutral undertones in your home.

My color advice uses your photos (taken in natural light) and email. Since you do most of the “leg work”, you will learn how to select colors the right way throughout the process.

You will receive my specific recommendations by email with links of where to source the colors.

How can we do this online?

Getting color right is much more about selecting the correct undertone than being able to predict how the color will change in light.

You will receive my specific recommendations by email with links of where to source the colors, fixed elements, or decorative elements.

How it Works:

Step 1: Purchase your consultation – Upon purchase, you will promptly receive an email with a questionnaire and instructions.

In the questionnaire, you will share with us the details of your project and personal style and preferences.

The questionnaire includes instructions for sharing plans and elevations, as well as photos of any finishes you may be considering. (You will receive detailed instructions for photographing them properly).  If you’re not there yet, don’t worry, YOU DON’T NEED TO HAVE SOURCED ANYTHING IN ADVANCE, as getting a plan from Alison will immediately narrow down all your choices to the most classic and timeless solution.

Step 2: Gather some inspiration images to share with Alison via Pinterest, Houzz, or any other idea board  so she can get a sense of your style and what you like.

Step 3: Fill out your questionnaire and create your album with any images and visual support material such as drawings and elevations.

Step 4: Submit your questionnaire along with links to your photo album and inspiration board.

Our process:

Alison will review your information and tailor her advice to suit your taste, lifestyle and the style of home you are building, working within her aesthetic of fresh and timeless.

You will receive via email Alison’s advice for your new home in a PowerPoint PDF format. It will include slides with images so you can see what she is recommending, complete with explanations and advice, and links to the products she is recommending.

*Note: You may have to email photos of paint swatches next to your fixed or decorative elements prior to receiving Alison’s final advice.

You will receive your presentation via email within 10 to 15 business days from when we receive your complete information, if not sooner.

This service provides guidance for DIY decorating so it’s rare to have after photos that are worth posting, because they require professional styling and photography. This is why you won’t see many of them on the blog.

Alison’s personal aesthetic is more transitional than contemporary, however she will help you achieve the most timeless result within the style you are going for whether it is transitional, contemporary or modern. She will not be designing the layout and millwork details of your kitchen which is where many of the details that define each style exist. If you choose slab (flat) cabinets for example, and you want book matched black marble, you will have to source highly custom elements like that on your own. However, Alison will make sure all your colors and finishes are balanced, coordinate perfectly, and flow throughout your home regardless of which design style with which you are working.

ALISON’S CLASSIC AND TIMELESS AESTHETIC

Since Alison’s aesthetic point of view is classic and timeless, this consultation will not include elaborate layouts of various accent tiles since trendy hard finish installations do not stand the test of time. If you’re hiring Alison to help with your new build, you’ve likely read enough of her blog to be familiar with her aesthetic, and will be happy with her specifications.

The New Build eDesign package provides what most people are looking for, which is a color plan that fits with the style and flow of your home.

This Interior Color Consultation is a residential service. Please contact us for a quote for commercial property inquiries.

DESIGN CONSULTATION GUARANTEE AND REFUND

You have paid for our time so we can’t provide a refund if for some reason you move or something changes before you can implement our recommendations. We want you to be happy, so if you have any objections or concerns about the recommendations, we ask that you share them with us along with photos of your color testing and give us the opportunity to tweak our selections before you reject them outright.

Please note we will not provide a refund unless we have had the chance to make adjustments to our initial recommendations.

REFUND POLICY FOR UNUSED CONSULTATIONS

Things come up in life, situations get altered or sometimes we just change our mind – it happens. Our eDesign team is here to make you happy and we are committed to complete client satisfaction. So, if within 90 days of your purchase, and prior to submitting your information, you change your mind, we will provide a refund less a 5% administrative fee. After 90 days, or once you have initiated the consultation process by submitting your information, we can no longer provide a refund.

NOT SURE WHAT SERVICE YOU NEED TO PURCHASE?

Just email me a description of what you are needing, and we will help guide you in what to purchase. We can also email you a PayPal invoice instead of purchasing an eDesign service through our website.

Hard Finish Selection

This consult will give you 1 Hard Finish selection.

Have you been stressing over which backsplash tile is right for your kitchen or bathroom? The best option for your kitchen countertop? The best neutral for your floor tile? The perfect carpet color?

The list of tiles and hard finishes that are classic and timeless is very short. And if it’s the wrong color, it will stick out like a sore thumb. It’s a costly mistake, so you want to get it right the first time.

It’s best that you select your hard finishes first prior to selecting paint color for your cabinets and walls.




HARD FINISH SELECTION

Create a Classic Bathroom

Classic finishes are more versatile for bathrooms because you can paint the walls any color as your decorating preferences and trends change over time. Alison will guide you through the best combination of colors and finishes to make the most of your investment and create the most timeless look for your bathroom that you will love forever, or at least for a long time.

In order to help us get you your solution faster, we ask that you include photos of samples you are considering (you will receive detailed instructions for photographing them properly). You may need to source more options within certain parameters and have you take photos of those in the context of the other elements too. Consulting online involves some leg work, but having professional advice for finishes that are pricey and relatively permanent makes it worth it!

Interior Decorate Package

Do you love Alison’s classic style, but need some direction to create the look and feel on your own? This consultation provides an inspired plan for color and decorating guidance to get you going.

You’ll receive two different mood boards, complete with source links for the color and style of your furnishings, area rug, decorating accents and paint color.

The easiest way to create a starting point is with throw pillows and an area rug. Then it becomes obvious which color sofa and chairs you’ll need.

This package includes:

  • 3 coordinating Throw Pillows – 2 combinations
  • A coordinating area rug–2 options
  • Ideas for colors for Soft Furnishings or Accent Pieces
  • The perfect Wall Paint Color
  • 3 or 4 Additional Paint Colors that coordinate with your existing color scheme

This package will NOT give you an entire furniture layout for your space. We don’t offer this package at this time because it gets very complicated and expensive to design an entire room via email.

You can add on the Single Coordinating Item for an Adjoining Room to help create better flow.
