Working with Christine

Simple, affordable solution coordinates home’s exterior color palette

One client had just spent thousands of dollars painting the exterior of his house, but was unhappy because the house colors didn’t work with color of the brick. I suggested he plant flowers in specific colors. These colors tied together the colors of the siding and bricks to create an overall cohesive schematic. Total cost of this simple color solution? $500.

Complete home makeover accomplished remotely

One busy executive with a hectic travel schedule had relocated to Houston and purchased a home. He needed paint color and furnishings for an entire house and a bathroom remodel. He had neither time nor interest for finding a contractor or shopping for furniture, lighting, window treatments and finishes. I completed the entire project remotely–via phone calls and e-mails with photos and recommendation specs. This client recently informed me that the value of the property has increased significantly, thanks in part to the improvements.

Help with paint and materials keeps project on track

An interior designer asked for help with a client’s paint and material choices. I helped her resolve the issues quickly and her client was happy, keeping the project on track.

Design-in-a-Day process to the rescue for newly remodeled home

A client had just remodeled their home, doubling its size. They had a very limited budget for painting and furnishing the house. Using my Design-in-a-Day process, I identified high-quality, stylish furnishings and décor that suited her taste and budget for almost every room in the house. I met with her in person and did online research, providing her with the report that included photos, prices and links. She was so happy to have saved countless hours and all items were well within budget.

New paint color choices turn an impersonal artist’s loft into a home

One client who owned some wonderful sculpture and paintings had just moved into a loft, painted in unappealing, noncohesive colors. He didn’t know where to start to make this place feel like his home. To enhance the entire space and highlight his artwork, we chose the perfect paint colors, and I recommended furniture to complete the look. He’s delighted with his new home.

1.5-hour consult relieves 8 months of color-selection paralysis

A painter asked that I help his client with exterior paint colors for a very large home. The client had a deadline so the project had to be completed within a few days of our call. When I arrived, there were at least 30 paint samples on the siding. In a 1.5 hour consult, I provided a solution (none of which was included in the 30 samples) with which the entire family was happy. I later found out the family had been working on the color-selection process for eight months! Happily, this family has referred me to their friends and neighbors.
