Q: How do you help homeowners overcome any fear of using color or pattern they may have?
A: I guide them towards what they truly love. Or, I try. Trusting yourself and your own color preferences is an integral part of the color selection process. However, fear is very, very powerful. Sometimes I have full-on counseling sessions with my clients! I try to help them see that in the world of color, there is no right and wrong. Because there really isn’t. We don’t select colors in a vacuum. Color is always relative, and, in the home, it is very personal. If I can help them see that their color selections are really about what THEY like as opposed to what’s right or wrong, then I know I’m guiding them out of their fear.
