Can you imagine being in a room with twenty-five other like-minded people being guided through a learning experience by the poo-bah of your industry? You get to ask her any question, get one-on-one time with her, make friends with other knowledge-seekers and have a great time doing it. That’s what I did last week. Talked colour for two and a half days.
If we aren’t learning, we are falling behind because everyone else is learning and moving forward. Before this course, even though I thought I knew a whack about color — and truthfully I did — I wanted to know more. I wanted to be absolutely sure I could answer your questions about color. And not just answer them but give you the reasons why and be able to explain the choices so you would understand and have faith.
And that’s what I got. I have a much deeper understanding of how colors relate to each other, how to find just the right colors to make your spaces more cohesive and how to create more flow through your home. The goal? To make you smile when you look at your colors. And don’t think for a minute that beige or white aren’t colours.
I’ve been in this business a loooonnnnngggg time, and Maria Killam knows more about colour than anyone I’ve ever come in contact with. She has developed a system of identifying and combining colours that is almost foolproof and that’s what she teaches.
Most of the decisions made about the interior decor of a home are made by women. And I know that women often have to explain, and sometimes justify, these choices to someone else. After picking colours with you, using Maria’s system, you will understand why these are the best choices for you and will have the confidence and knowledge to explain them to someone else.
Maria warned us that we would be analyzing colours everywhere and that we would probably drive our friends and family a bit nuts with it all. More knowledge often comes with pitfalls. She was right about the analyzing part, for sure. I’m looking at colour a whole new way now, and the best part is that not only can I tell what is wrong where colour is concerned, I can say why, and know what the fix is. And do it quickly and with total confidence.
So. For you, it means you get the benefit of Maria’s system through me. No one wants to make mistakes with their decor. That always costs money and time and creates frustration — we’ve all been there. But now you don’t have to do that with colour in your home.
Thank you, Maria.
