Colour ConsultationBy Hope Designs


It’s not highly effective to simply fall in love with a specific paint colour and immediately splash it across your walls. Oftentimes the way a specific paint colour looks in one space will look a lot different in your own. Perhaps the size, shape, and lighting of the other space positively influenced the look of the colour. But if these components don’t match with your space, you could wind up with a completely different look, and be thoroughly disappointed.

The same goes for choosing a paint colour based on a small sample you get from the store. Many times you’ll find that the colour looks much different when your entire wall is covered in it versus the way it looks on this minuscule paint sample. Choosing the right colour for your home really can be a daunting task. If you get it wrong, it can be incredibly frustrating.

With all the colours of the rainbow available out there, it truly makes sense to hire an expert in the world of interior decor to help you choose the right hue for your home.

They won’t be forcing their own personal tastes on you

Interior decorators obviously have their own personal tastes, but they won’t try to force their opinions and tastes on you. At the end of the day, it’s about making the homeowner happy. It doesn’t matter if it’s a colour that appeals to the expert; the colours that are chosen have everything to do with what works in the homeowner’s home, and not necessarily what the interior decorator wants.

During the colour consultation, your interior decorator will help you narrow down a colour palette that will work for years to come. Unless you’re open to repainting your home every so often by choosing more eclectic and trendy colours, you may be better off choosing a classic hue that will stand the test of time.


You’ll be left with colour options for a few days to live with.

Sometimes it takes a few days before a specific colour grows on a person and eventually stands out as the clear winner. At your colour consultation, you might be left with a few large colour swatches. You might even have a few samples painted right on your wall for you to get a better idea. Many experts agree that painting samples on the walls first is a must before buying gallons and gallons of paint.

By painting on the wall and letting it dry, you’ll have the opportunity to see how the lighting in your home affects how the colours appear. Lighting has a powerful effect on how colours look once they’ve been painted on the walls, and looking at these colours for a couple of days will help you get a better sense of what the final product will eventually look like.

What's Involved

A colour consultation provides your interior decorator with a chance to find out everything they need to know about your tastes and needs. Here are just some of the things you can expect at your colour consultation.

Your Participation

Your interior decorator won’t just be dictating what colour they think your space should be. Instead, it’s a two-way street. A colour consultation is highly collaborative and involves the input of the homeowner just as much as the suggestions of the interior decorator.

Clients might need just a little direction or may have minimal ideas about how to pursue their colour selections. Colour consultants will effectively assess which level the homeowner is in and let them use as little or as much of the professional’s services as needed.

Colour Choices

While professionals will want to get to know you and your home better before making a final colour decision, the initial colour consultation might involve having you look at a few samples right off the bat. Of course, the first visit will involve a walk-through of the house, where the interior decorator can envision how the colour scheme can generate a new and re-energized flow in the home.

It is typically challenging for homeowners to visualize the entire home just by looking at small paint chips. That’s why many colour consultants will come armed with a variety of samples in neutral colors that consistently appeal to homeowners.
