Paint Color Consultation Creates Dramatic Look for “Period” House

Interior painting, combined with Color Consultation, create much added value for customers. We recently painted the interior of an American Four-Square style house. The owners expressed their desire for bold colors and a dramatic look.

The owners of this “period” house had given a lot of though to the colors they wanted. They also did quite a bit of research, but they were at a loss deciding which colors to choose for their interior painting project and how to use them throughout their house. This is the point at which color consultation was introduced into this house painting project. Let’s use the living room, dining room and foyer as an example. Here is a picture of the foyer before the interior painting project started.

The owners used these words to describe the look they envisioned for their living room: “We want to suggest a 19th century upper class English drawing room, where one could read and smoke, while buried deep in a leather armchair, brandy snifter at hand”. Those words inspired the selection of the colors used in the living room, foyer and dining room. A dark blue was chosen for the living room. A deep red was selected for the foyer and a green for the dining room.

You may recall that the owners had expressed their desire for a dramatic look. The stairs in the foyer presented an opportunity to create that drama: every two steps were alternatively painted, using the same three colors as those three areas of the house. Here is a picture of the dramatic new look of their foyer and stairway.

Our customers were delighted with the results of their interior painting project. Such a project demonstrates the power of color in creating home environments that nurture and inspire the occupants of that house. This is the result Painting in Partnership delivers every time.
