Do you find that choosing colour for your clients is a STILL consistent source of stress? Because, you are not alone.
Colour is the #1 pain point for design professionals.
Often followed by managing messy communication with clients who are second-guessing your recommendations.
Because if you don’t convey perfect confidence in your colour choices, your client will start to question everything.
This is not an effective way to manage projects.
I REALIZE THAT WHAT MY CLIENT WANTS WON’T WORK
But I struggle being able to explain why.
Hi, I’m Maria Killam!
I’ve spent more than 20 years colour consulting, which led me to invent a more practical and effective way to get colour right. It’s a colour system with step-by-step processes for choosing colour that works for every project.
It’s common for new designers (and even seasoned ones) to lose control of consultations and end up simply fulfilling clients’ wish lists. Even when all your expertise and instincts say it’s not the right choice.
Through my years of consulting with clients, I’ve gathered valuable insights, now condensed into a two-day course to empower you in making better color decisions.
I’ll show you how to communicate so you can firmly and professionally guide your clients to the best outcome. Because if you can’t demonstrate the WHY, your clients will continue to spin with uncertainty.
We’ll also explore how choosing a timeless and classic style helps your clients make lasting and sustainable changes to their homes, adding considerable value to your services.

Definitely NOT! 🙌🏻
Your instincts are good, but your client still needs to know the “why.” And communicating this can be a challenge for both the new designer and the seasoned one.
In just two days, you’re going to know how to tell a client what’s missing or what’s wrong, and what they need to do to make it better. This is the confidence you need to communicate more directly with your clients – no matter where you are in your design career.
Let’s face it, a color consultation goes beyond choosing paint colors for a wall. Typically you’re also advising on the colors for furniture and decor in order to create a cohesive color scheme that flows throughout. You’ll learn how to harmonize both.
And when you apply my timeless design principles to your bathroom and kitchen designs, you’ll have more freedom to express yourself through decorating. Bonus: You’ll create a portfolio that’s truly everlasting.
But you may still be wondering if this investment really worth it?
I’ll walk you through the EXACT steps for making colour and design decisions from start to finish, for ANY project. Imagine what this kind of insight can do for your design business?

💰 And, finally here’s how my two-day workshop pays for itself.
First, it’s the cost of one mistake. That’s easy math. For most it has a dollar amount. You never forget what it cost to replace that _________. Believe me, I’ve been there. There’s also an emotional cost – delays, frustration, OVERTHINKING. Been there too.
Second, being able to decorate around a finish your client isn’t changing (that you’re not in love with). Often, you’ll get much more out of decorating and styling a room WELL than by fixing expensive colour mistakes.
Did you get that? You’ll learn the best way to freshen up your client’s home when they can’t replace everything. You’ll learn to solve a variety of challenges with colours and finishes, so you can help them move forward – whether you’re working with a budget that’s basic or luxe.
I’ve been helping clients pull together their spaces with both new and inherited finishes for over 20 years. I’ve seen it ALL. So, I know a thing or two about solving decorating challenges of all kinds. And, you’ll learn the exact same process I use in just two days.
Now’s the time to carve out a niche for yourself as the go-to COLOUR expert in your area.
Soaring real estate costs make colour consulting a necessity. Because when people stop building, they start renovating. If they don’t have the budget to replace cabinets, they paint.
