How To Design Color Palettes Using Just a Floor Plan

And this is how I design color for my Virtual Clients – if I’m lucky enough to get a floor plan. Color and arrows to show placement makes this virtual process EXTREMELY easy to design and more importantly, easy for my clients to follow.

It is SO Not A Good Idea To Choose Color On Cloudy Days

I recently had a color consultation and unfortunately it was on a cloudy rainy day. Now I know that this is not the day to choose color for my clients but she was under an extreme tight timeline. So I went ahead with the consult. Needless to say the colors we’re looking mighty gray and dingy as I expected.

In cases like this where I cannot reschedule consult I tell the client that we will go ahead and choose color today but will review them on the next sunny day and make changes as needed.

color tip 1

I have another color consultation today and yes it is cloudy and due to rain any minute. I contacted the client and advised her that it would be best to wait for a sunny day and thankfully she agreed.

You can’t rush choosing color for your home.
