My neighbors stop in front of my house and tell me how much they like the paint colors on my small ranch house. I asked Tina Dann-Fenwick to help me select appropriate colors for the exterior of my house. I wanted a certain look with a “Wow” factor but not one too loud and ostentatious. She arrived with several books of colors–far more colors than I’d seen at the Benjamin Moore shop. We worked thorough a number of schemes and settled on a pale gray-blue body color, a darker, almost-Navy trim color, white window mullions and a bright cheery red door. A pretty simple combination until you start working through all the color variations. She ordered 8″ x 11″ color proofs to make sure we liked the colors. Her choices were spot on. I’ve had 5 neighbors compliment me on the house colors. One says she will ask me for the paint colors in the spring. Tina also helped design our new Great Room at my church, the First Presbyterian Church in Lake Forest. A far larger project than selecting paint colors for my house. She did a remarkable job there, advising a large group on the design committee–not an easy task. I’m very pleased with her color selections and advice.
