Q&A With a Color Consultant Amy Krane on How to Pick Paint Color

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Q. What colors do you wear?A. I was an urbanite for almost 30 years until I moved to the country two years ago. Living in New York City, you can’t help but have black, white and neutrals as staples in your wardrobe. Having said that, if you step into my closest, you will see not only tons of black, white, gray, oatmeal and denim, but loads of color. My wardrobe is as diverse as the palettes I create for my clients: a color for every occasion and mood.Amy Krane, shown here, likes to mix black and neutrals with shots of vibrant colors in her clothing and her home.

Questions to ask before choosing colors (from Amy Krane, color consultant) • What kind of mood do I want to create in the space? • Do I like trim that contrasts greatly with the body of the home or not? • Do I want my home to blend in or stand out from those around it? • Am I a neutrals person or drawn to bold color? • Do deep, dark colors energize me or scare me? • Is keeping a room light colored important to me? Pull some examples to show the consultant what you like. If the property involved is a house exterior, take a look around your neighborhood at similar-style homes and get a feeling for what appeals to you. If there are two decision makers involved in the consultation, spend some time together discussing how to navigate your divergent tastes, so you can present a uniformed point of view to the consultant. Nothing wastes time more in a consultation than having to navigate the disparate views of two people with differing ideas.
