Color for Residential Interiors

For most people, choosing paint colors can be overwhelming. Not only is it necessary to take the room’s furnishings into consideration, but paint finish, adjacent room color, sight lines, architecture and light sources, all play an important role in making an informed choice.

This 60 minute talk (plus Q & A) includes over 50 examples of how and how not to use color. The talk combines both the science and art of proper color application and an exploration of the profound emotional, psychological and physiological effects that color has on all of us.
