Can’t choose colours with tiny samples. (source)
Do you have my large colour boards yet? At 50 boards for $297 (including shipping), it’s an awesome deal. Each one of the 50 boards only costs $6 when you buy the collection – you can’t come even close to buying the necessary paint and posters boards for that price. Never mind all the time you will spend painting and cleaning up paint rollers or brushes!
If you already have one of these collections, you’ll know how valuable they are.
Here’s what one of my recent True Colour Experts said about her boards:
“Without being too dramatic, the large colour boards have really and truly changed my color consultations. I purchased both of Maria’s collections after the Summer School webinar and having them immediately put me at a pro level. I then signed up for her True Colour Expert training in October in Toronto and when we were working with small color chips the first day, I found it difficult to do the assignments without the big boards. Once you go big, you never go back!” – Cathy Zaeske, Your Favourite Room
Another designer told me she bought my boards before she attended a Specify Colour with Confidence training. The first time she carried her new boards into a design consultation, her business partner gave her a funny look and said, “Why are you bringing those? We don’t need them.” The consultation went much easier using the colour boards and the next time they got out of their car before a consultation, her partner changed her tune and said, “Make sure you bring those large boards.”
If you don’t have either set, start with the Core Collection. This collection has my top 50 undertones by category so if you need a neutral, 95% of the time, you’ll find it here.
In the VIP Collection I added some more greiges (because they are so popular), greens, blues, some yellows and darks. It’s easier to decide if your window trim or fireplace surround should go dark with these samples.
Did you read my post from Monday? To really understand the difference between taupe and gray versus beige and to understand the secondary undertones in my system, you’ll need to read my ebook, How to Choose Paint Colours – It’s All in the Undertones.
Once you choose the right colours by using my eBook to guide you and my colours boards to confirm you’re making the correct choice, take the boards shopping with you, then you’ll see immediately that the fabric or tile that you are choosing is the correct colour or undertone.
