I hired Chris to help me with our new classroom space. The place was a disaster when she came in, with old, white walls, and ripped up blue carpet. It has tall, north-facing windows, so plenty of sunlight during the day with little direct sun. It didn’t take her long to come up with a sort of light beige color with a mocha carpet combination. That didn’t sound like great colors to me (we were thinking more colorful, etc.), however she promised it would be just right for workshops.
She was right. Once I painted and put the carpet in, it had a very calming influence without reducing energy. It’s been perfect for our workshops and other meetings. We added a little splash, at her suggestion, with some furniture.
If you are doing any kind of project that requires color selection, hire Chris! You’ll be so glad that you did.
