Color is not science, some will tell you it is. Color is emotion, it’s the intangible reason you love your girlfriends house, that guy’s wardrobe or the new cafe down the street. It’s not one color you love, it’s the perfect pairings of color and texture. It’s what makes art mysteriously brilliant. I design with color and texture from a fine artist’s point of view. That can mean a minimalist design consisting of whites and woods or a saturated, layered color palette- it just depends on your goals. Whatever your style is, the result will be tasteful, elegant and stand the test of time.
The process ,for me, is like making a piece of art: draw attention here, away from here, repeat a pattern over there, highlight this area here, carry the eye around and create a balance, step back, edit, finish. This is how I approach your project.
I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the State University of NY @ Purchase College and have spent my post college years dedicated to painting. I have taught art to children and since becoming a mother I have been designing, consulting and painting as much as possible.
In 2005, I attended ‘color guru’ Leatrice Eiseman’s Color Psychology Workshop on Bainbridge Island, WA.
I charge an hourly rate. I am your partner and you can use me as little or as much as you need to get through the re-design process. I communicate your unique design and other needs to the contractor/s and reduce the stress of construction.
Email me and tell me about your project and I will give you an estimate. No job is too big or too small. I do full designs of million dollar homes and developments and choose accent colors for little condo bathrooms. I work directly with architects or with homeowners, developers and general contractors.
My passion is helping people make their home or business reflect their style. I am honest, opinionated and fast at what I do and look forward to helping you uncover your true style.- Anne
