NOW AVAILABLE - virtual exterior consultations - hire me from anywhere in the world
Exteriors only – I'll create your exterior color palette by working with you entirely via email and phone,
and deliver your digital color map via email within 2 weeks of having all your photos and information. Each color palette includes any number of exterior colors, including main house color, trim color, front door color and any number of accent colors needed.
To purchase a virtual exterior consultation, you can pay with a check or credit card. To pay with a credit card, please visit my Etsy shop: www.etsy.com/shop/ColorificExteriors
You choose how many color palette options you want. OR pick a price point that works with your budget:
• 1 custom color palette: $400 (a good option if you have a good idea what you want)
• 2 custom color palettes: $500 (a great budget option, but with 2 palettes to choose from)
• 3 custom color palettes: $600 (the best option if you like lots of options to choose from)
All options come with a digital (pdf) color map of your chosen palette for your painter to use to complete your project. If you live in the States, and you prefer a physical (paper) color map with actual Benjamin Moore color swatches on your map (plus 2" Ben Moore color swatches to keep) – for a $20 additional fee, you can have your physical map mailed to you via USPS Priority Mail.
Don't need to change everything? Maybe one of these will fit your needs:

Interior design research and recommendations
Do you need help with finding a couple of items to complete a room? Maybe the perfect rug, a new coffee table, or a fresh way to organize your front hall or mud room.
Maybe you need some help to pull together an entire room using a few of the items you already have?
If you don't have the time or interest in searching the world and web for that "missing piece" of your home decor (or everything you need to update an entire room) – let me help!
Tell me what you need, and your purchasing budget – and I can help you with
• Product research
• Pricing options (do you want the original Italian version? or the knock-off?)
We'll start with a questionnaire to zero in on your taste, needs and budget, and then I'll set off to find the things you require. Once I've gathered all my research and picked out the items I feel will work together to complete the room, I'll create a simple pdf "mood board" showing photos of all the pieces together, plus a list of prices, and which stores carry it.
In addition, I can provide a look for a room that includes photos and prices of both originals and knock-off versions – and then you can decide what makes the most sense for your home and lifestyle.
Think of it as "interior design help" but keep in mind, I won't be designing custom pieces, or ordering/installing anything – I will be creating a mood board based on your input and budget, allowing you to purchase the items on your schedule.
If you hate shopping or don't have the time to research – this could be a great fit.
The work will be completed under separate contract and billed at $200/hour (2-hour minimum). I will provide an estimate for the cost of my time, and I won't go over the original estimate without your approval.
