Spend three days with me where I will reveal what doesn’t get covered in design school, the colour industry, or anywhere else online or in print. You’ll walk away knowing precisely how to distinguish undertones and work with complex neutrals, and your eye will be trained to see what others just can’t.

You’ll also learn my Colour Confidence Method™, a proven technique that will give you the expertise and confidence you need to raise your rates immediately.

My method covers:

  • My system for Understanding Undertones™ comes down to 9 undertones. ANYWHERE you go in the world, they are the same. They can be transferred to ANY colour system.
  • The must-know principles of colour consulting that will give your clients true value in their decorating, renovating, or building projects;
  • How to help your clients get more from their budgets than they thought possible;
  • The 10 steps you’ll use to ace every consultation;
  • The exact language you’ll use to help your clients understand the “why” of your suggestions (i.e., why “this” is the best choice and why “that” isn’t) Many times you’ll know intuitively that something works or doesn’t but aren’t able to explain why your suggestions are correct ;
  • How to see when colour can create magic and when it can’t;
  • Work with real tile, countertop and flooring samples during in-class exercises throughout the 3 days.
  • Day 3: Learn the Business of Colour, What you need to do to set yourself up for success, how and what to charge for your services, how to ask for the money, how to see and help your clients with colour on-line so you can add this valuable and lucrative service to your list of offerings.
  • and much more!

  • Your own invaluable reference book, filled with all the learning tools from three days of training

  • Use of an in-class fan deck
  • Work with fabric, hard finishes and large paint samples during in-class, hands-on exercises throughout all 3 days. After your group has made their selections, Maria works with each group to tweak their colour selections and explain WHY each choice is the correct one

Additional Bonuses:
