Commercial building brought to new life

While we have posted about this project earlier this year, we cannot help but write again about Jason Leonard’s sweet project in NE Portland as it has just received some press on design sponge.

Color Consult: Before + After

Hearing feedback from clients on a completed project is one of the best aspects of our business. What works? What is their favorite part of the transformation? The list of questions is endless. Imagine our delight when a repeat client, Sue, sent the kindest email expressing her gratitude of a successful color consultation.

Having assisted with Sue’s colors for the last 10 years, it was a delight to help pick a bright fun palette for her new SW Portland home to match her bright personality. The exterior was easy, pick a similar red to her former home so that the new one would feel more familiar and welcoming. The interior was a bit more complicated. Being a large home with vaulted ceilings and a slightly open floor plan, it was tricky to coordinate the correct flow of rooms through color. Happily, in working together with Sue, we NAILED it and exceeded her expectations.

Here are some snippets from her emails

OMG do I love the rest of the house. The ‘constellation room’ turned out beautifully. It changed the feel of the room entirely.

You did an amazing job – my family loved all of the colors (and we had a fantastic Christmas, this house is just perfect for that) and my friends have all loved them as well. Thank you!!!!!
Well done, Color Queen…well done.
She was kind enough to send before and after photos. Before pictures are on the left.

Palette for home

SBaird just created a palette for a home that needs updating for the real estate market. The client is thinking of selling in the near future, therefore creating a warm and soothing neutral palette was the goal.

Exterior colors of Wolf and Seed Pearl, Pratt and Lambert Paints and interior colors mostly of Seed Pearl. My client has incredible design acumen and did not need much help with furnishings and lighting. It all came together perfectly.
