Find reputable sources. Color consultants don't always have formal training, though some have completed a certification program. Most have a background in the visual arts, graphic or interior design, or paint manufacturing. Browse the directory of professionals on Houzz or your local chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers. Some home stores and paint retailers, particularly higher-end ones, have color consultants on staff. Once you have a handful of names, contact them to assess which one seems to suit your needs and personality best, and ask for references.
