Create a Cohesive Color Scheme for Your Entire Home, Step-by-Step


Choosing Paint Colors for Your Home Can Be Challenging.

When it comes to your paint colors, does this sound like you?

"My colors are so dated."

"They don't match the other finishes in my home."

"I just don't like them! They aren't my style."

"I'm afraid I'm going to get it wrong."

"I don't even know where to start!"

So often we just live with what makes us unhappy. Even though we're ready to make a change, we struggling with indecision and a lack of confidence.

What if you had a solid plan based on the principles of color theory, the lighting for your specific home, and guided by the mood you want to convey in your space?

That, my friend, is what I call a Color Story. 

It's as simple as it sounds, a collection of colors that tells the story of your home. 

With a Color Story, you're able to make color decisions confidently, knowing they were chosen based on a proven system. 


No more overhelm standing in the middle of a sea of paint chips. No more mindlessly scrolling Pinterest and tossing up the first color that catches your eye, only to find it looks completely different in your house. 

Instead, you can have a home that conveys the feeling you want to evoke, whether it's light and neutral, warm and cheerful, or bold and moody. Even the most tricky lighting and permanent finishes won't hold us back.

I've created the Color Story System, which is a simple six-step process that combines Color Psychology, Color Theory, and Lighting Principles. It sounds complicated, but it's actually quite simple, quick and fun! In this course, I bring you through the process step-by-step and teach you only what you need to know. There's no information overwhelm! Once you understand this simple system, choosing colors and the relationships between colors feels like second nature.

This is the very same process that I've used to choose the paint colors in my home, which have been shared on Pinterest hundreds of thousands of times. It isn't just an "eye for color" or instinct, there's a tried-and-true system that anyone can use

I can't wait to teach you what it is!

Frequently Asked Questions

I notice that you like neutrals. What if I like bright colors?

While I do love neutrals, the concepts I teach in the course are applicable to any type of color! Throughout the course I use many different examples of color schemes beyond just neutrals. I'm used to working with clients with different taste than mine, and so I teach the course from that same perspective! 

What if I'm working around finishes that I don't necessarily like, but I'm not able to change?

This is a big topic in the course! So many people face this same dilemma. I will teach you strategies to tone down permanent finishes you don't necessarily love (and highlight ones you do!). 

What if I'm not ready to paint right away, or I can't paint (renting, etc.)?

This course does focus on paint colors, but the color scheme concept can also apply to things that aren't permanent. It's ultimately up to you, but the course is probably most valuable for those who are planning to paint in the not-too-distant future. 

Will you be designing for me one-on-one and/or giving me personalized ideas?

This is a DIY course, so you will be completing the activities and making design decisions independently. While there is a Facebook community, it is a place to crowd-source your potential ideas. I will be happy to answer questions about the concepts in the course via email and in the group, but I will not complete your Color Story for you.
