Color Wheel by Maria Killam

Choosing paint colors can be so very overwhelming!  The sheer volume of options can be paralyzing.  You may know what color you like, but can’t decide on the exact shade.  Or, perhaps you simply want a neutral, but the undertones seem confusing.  Let us make it super straightforward for you.  As a certified True Color Expert, Cate will confidently narrow in on the colors that will work in your home interior or exterior, based on the look and feel you are aiming for and the existing elements in the home. 

An intensive three day training with internationally renowned Color Expert Maria Killam equipped Cate with an arsenal of tools to choose the right color easily and confidently.  Maria's approach teaches how to identify undertones in the existing fixtures in a home (carpet, wood, stone, brick), guiding us to the ideal paint color choice.

Save yourself time and money trying out dozens of paint colors, and get it right the first time! 

It was a pleasure working with Cate. She helped us select paint colors for multiple rooms and provided design ideas for our living room. I’m excited to incorporate her recommendations and we look forward to working with her again!
