Picking paint colors can be a complicated task. With thousands of colors to choose from, it is easy to become overwhelmed. Making the right color choices for your walls the first time around can save you a significant amount of time and money. Betsey Dempsey of Color Concepts can help you by providing color consulting for your home or business.


Betsey Dempsey will gladly travel to your home or business. She will bring various color fan decks, and design kits containing larger color samples. Before picking colors with you, she will talk with you to get a feel for your likes and dislikes. Betsey will then observe the total environment including the lighting, flooring, furnishings and colors surrounding the space. Once colors have been mutually agreed upon, you will be left with all of the information you need to proceed with the task. Fees are dependent upon location.

There are many answers to this question. Some of these include:

  • lighting - quantity of natural light vs. artificial light and the color of the light
  • size of room - larger rooms can accommodate color differently than smaller rooms
  • reflections - floor and ceiling colors will affect the color on the walls as well as exterior reflections
  • undertones- even paint colors such as white usually have color added to them
