We started The Paint Palette Co. with one goal in mind: To completely transform the interior design industry and what it means to hire an interior designer.
Every client we have started out skeptical, so you're not alone. It's hard to see how it's possible for us to use photos to design your space or choose your paint colors.
If we weren't confident in our ability to design your space from photos, we wouldn't have a business built around this philosophy.
From start to finish, you are completely guided through our design process. We've made our price structure simple and transparent. There are no hidden fees and you don't pay hourly for our time. We've already figured out how long it takes us to complete a paint color palette or kitchen and bath design, so we've priced it accordingly. The best part? If you don't like it or want us to change part of your palette or design, we will.. happily! In fact, we won't leave you until you are 100% in love with it.
Once you checkout we send you a guide for taking photos of your spaces. Photos are important for a few reasons:
1. We need to see your lighting. When it comes to paint colors, your lighting is the most important aspect. Both natural and artificial.
2. We need to see what you currently have (that you want to change) because that leads us closer to what you do want.
3. We need to see your inspiration pieces. This is very important and why in our guide we ask you take many photos of your inspiration piece (something we can draw color from) at different angles, so we can use context clues to figure out the color scheme.
4. To see your layout and your design taste. Believe it our not, you already have a design scheme happening in your home already. You may be completely lost, but we use items you already have to figure out what you like. That just leads us closer and closer to a paint color palette and a design plan you will love.
We will keep in contact with you until you're sick of us and we respond almost annoyingly fast. We just want to make sure you are completely taken care of throughout this process and all of your questions are answered.
Once we have your photos and you've answered a few of our design questions, we get to work *quickly* on your plan. Paint color palettes are sent faster than kitchen and bath designs.
We will email you a layout of your interior or exterior paint colors and why we chose them. You'll receive a detailed and custom plan for your spaces with the paint color (per manufacturer of your choice) (typically Sherwin Williams or Benjamin Moore) and the paint finish we recommend for that area. If you already have other paint colors you are trying to work with, that's no problem. We have all of the paint colors in our studio and we will make sure you're new paint colors cooperate with your existing paint colors. The plan will typically include room scenes of the colors we chose, a rendering of your new paint colors in your space (if applicable), as well as any design advice we have!
We have accounts and special discounts that we are happy to pass along to our clients. We don't mark anything up or make anything from your purchases, we just want to make sure you are completely taken care of. We will happily make changes to your plan either when you receive the plan or once you sample your paint colors. We also send large paint color sheets to your home (free of charge) to help you visualize your colors better.
This process works a lot like our online paint color consultations, but much more detailed. It's more detailed because there is so much more involved. Once we have your photos and answers to your design questions (there are many more) then we get to work on your design plan. Your photos are so important for lay out purposes and its very important we understand your budget. We can do a $5k quick update design, a $10k-20k no change of layout design, or a $20k+ design where we completely change your layout, tile, cabinets, plumbing fixtures etc. We have a standard kitchen and bath design fee and we are not your contractor, so the only thing we gain from knowing your budget is how to give you the most accurate design plan. We will include:
Rough Space Plan (we won't ask you to measure which means we can't give you an accurate space plan. It's up to you to confirm all designs and plans with your remodeling contractor of choice), Cabinet Color and Type (this depends on your budget - if you are painting or replacing), Knobs and Pulls
Counter top Selection (typically quartz or granite), Tile Selection (Floor and/or Walls), Tile Design, Accent Tiles and Design (Shower Niche or Backsplash Accent), Plumbing Fixture Finish and Selection, Simple Accessories We think Will Update the Space (Mirrors, Art, Etc.). We are local to the Atlanta, Georgia area so we have sources here locally. We are happy to put you in contact with them if you are local here also, so you receive our discount on all of your purchases (psst its usually less than Home Depot).
No more hourly designers. No more questioning if you can afford a designer. YOU CAN. We made it that way on purpose.
We hope we squashed all of your skepticism and we can't wait to work with you!
