What is an open layout paint colour?

Increasingly, contemporary homes are designed with an open layout where spaces connect without doorways and moldings so that the best look is one continuous fresh paint colour that unifies the main living spaces. This colour needs to relate well to decor and finishes in several areas including the kitchen, fireplace, foyer and more. 

This consultation includes:

About this consultation

Your open layout paint colour doesn’t necessarily need to be a neutral but it most often is, so this is where you need the CORRECT NEUTRAL UNDERTONE. Maria’s system of Identifying Undertones gives her unique insight into seeing and specifying colour, even online. So you can be assured that you are getting the right neutral undertone and eliminate the guesswork.

Because no one wants to have to redo such a big paint job because they made their best guess and didn’t get it right the first time.

And you’ll get the WHY. Why is one colour or neutral better than another? That’s what you’re paying for after all. The right colour so you can sleep well at night!

Maria has worked with thousands of clients will all imaginable types finishes and colours. This service provides guidance for DIY decorating so it’s rare to have after photos that are worth posting, because they require professional styling and photography. This is why you won’t see many of them on the blog.

One final note:

Let’s say you buy this consultation thinking that it’s the only thing you need to transform your space into an after picture. In many cases, that could be true…but sometimes, the result you’re after will require that you purchase an additional consultation. If that’s the case, we’ll let you know before we do anything, and we’ll give you the option to either purchase the additional consultation, or receive a complete refund of the consult you’ve already purchased.

When you get interior paint colour consultation advice from the Maria Killam team, WE ARE NOT GUESSING.
