Colors of the Month - A Sophisticated Winter Palette

Winter time colors should evoke a sense of dignity and warmth. They must combat the dreariness of everyday winter and yet make it look like a dance.

With the trees now bare this light forest-sage green brings the foliage back into your home. It echoes the pine of the Christmas tree and would be great in a kitchen, family room or bathroom.

Golden hues are the epitome of elegance. Golden garland and warm lights feed into this color. Use this as the backdrop to your fireplace and hearth or in the entire living room. A home office would also take to this color well with mahogany built-ins.

Here is your neutral color used in transition spaces. Large open rooms and hallways, rooms that are connected to other rooms need a palette cleanser. As we move into 2016 you'll see the return of the off-white as neutral.

Lastly, our statement piece. The only color that says, "yes, I am brooding winter, what about it?" It's dramatic and wonderful. Paint this color in a formal dining room and use your holiday decorations of warm white lights, silver and gold and spruce to make it charming and cozy. An off-white table setting will bring back your neutral into the room taking off the edge.

Hiring House Painters? Here's what you need to know.


Planning Your Paint Project

Having your house or just a couple rooms painted is the perfect way to imprint your personality on your home. I recently spoke with a customer while we were painting her house and she told me that for the first time she came home and it felt like HER house! Living with the colors of the previous homeowner or just the contractor white of a new home has a way of making you feel like you don't fit in at your own home. The following 7 steps are how we at Color Theory plan for your painting project.


If you are painting the interior of your home decide which rooms you want painted and whether to include the ceilings and trim.  

If you are painting the exterior of the home, plan ahead because weather and season is a major factor on getting your house painted.


Easily schedule an appointment through the Color Theory website to receive a custom estimate or find a package that will work for you in our storefront.

The estimate will take about an hour where you will receive a quote on the spot after the measurements are taken.  Be sure to set a time where all decision makers in the home are present.


After you accept the estimated proposal we require a 25% downpayment to put you on our schedule.  Jobs are scheduled on a first come first serve basis and with our schedule filling up fast you'll want to plan early enough to get your project started when you're hoping to.

At this time we will also go over the color options.  You may choose to purchase a Color Consultation in order to aide in finding the color scheme that works best in your home.


During busy seasons we can be scheduled out up to 3 months in advance or more.  However, the waiting list is usually around 5-6 weeks.  Start dates are approximate due to unpredictable conditions like weather.


Once we begin work, our goal is to make the process as pain free as possible.  We ask that pictures be removed from the walls and that small items are removed from the room being painted.  Large items should be pushed to the center of the room.  Beyond that, we aim at making this experience as convenient as possible.  A crew of 2-4 team members will be assigned to the project.


We work a couple of rooms or sections at a time so that you can get your house back in order as we complete the project.  When we are finished, each room is inspected by a supervising member, a walk through is completed with the home owner and then final payment is collected.


Now that you've become a satisfied customer it would really help us if you offered a review online or referred a friend to take advantage of our referral program!


Hiring Color Theory professional painters is pain-free and exciting as you witness the transformation of your home through color. Schedule today!
