Choosing paint isn't easy. I know that first hand. With so many colours to choose from it can be difficult nailing down the perfect paint shade for your home. However, the more time you spend with paint decks the easier it becomes.
One of the highlights of my job as an exhibition designer at The Art Gallery of Ontario was choosing the wall colours for different art shows. The art would often dictate what colour we chose but there was always a bit of leeway. We would use paint to evoke a particular emotion or mood. After seven years of doing that job I got to try out hundreds of paint colours as a result I have a pretty good understanding of what shades work best.
Over the next 7 weeks I'm going to be sharing that knowledge with you. Every Thursday evening from 6-8 pm I'll be teaming up with CIL and Home Depot to offer free paint consultations. (If you aren't in the Toronto area check the CIL website for another Decor Expert in your region.) Below is my schedule:
Toronto Stockyards - 2121 St. Clair Ave. West
Toronto Gerrard Square - 1000 Gerrard Street East
Toronto Leaside - 101, Wicksteed Ave
Toronto Curity - 7 Curity Avenue
Scarborough Ellesmere - 428 Ellesmere Road
Eglinton East - 2911 Eglinton Avenue East
Etobicoke South - 193 North Queen Street
I hope to see you. Bring photographs of your rooms, fabric swatches, inspiration images or anything else that will make the consultation more valuable. And have your questions ready! I'm excited to see your home projects and to be a part of it.
