Betsey bases her recommendations on many factors. Most important, is the preference of the homeowner. She listens, yet often "nudges" the client in a direction that will work best with the space. Your home should be your oasis, a place that makes you feel good, whatever that means for you. Betsey is available to travel to your home for a personalized experience.


"I highly recommend Betsey Dempsey to any client looking for help translating their design vision into reality. Betsey’s extensive knowledge about color and design and how these principles impact the selection of tile, paint, cabinetry, countertops and flooring is a tremendous asset to any homeowner or company looking for a rewarding transformation of their space. Betsey will patiently guide a client through the process of curating materials, always keeping in mind the client's taste, budget and goals within the space. She is professional and personable in all aspects of the design process, alleviating the stress that comes with making many design decisions. I continue to receive high praise from referred clients who have worked with Betsey!"

"Everybody experiences color in a uniquely personal way.  When my clients color decisions become more struggle than fun or they simply want fresh new ideas that can stretch their imagination, I suggest they schedule a visit with Betsey.  Her practical knowledge of paint combined with a highly intuitive understanding of color make her a  respected and valuable resource.  She truly is a color professional!"

"Unlike our neighbor (who told us he should have listened to you), we followed your advice and we are thrilled. The new color completely changes the look of our home. Please note, we would NEVER have picked these colors on our own. Your confidence in your ability to listen to us and create a solution that you knew would work inspired us to move forward confidently. Like most work in homes, the job is not yet completed. But thank you for making our home beautiful."
- H. and L. L.

“I’ve hired Betsey many times and will continue to hire her for future projects. Betsey really “knows” color, including all aspects of paint/painting and the complexity that can make choosing colors more challenging than just picking a color from a paint chip or an online photo. I know I can count on Betsey to help me achieve the desired goal(s) and avoid making costly mistakes. The end product/effect is always just what I was looking for and even better!”

- Susan Hosmer

"Betsey is a pleasure to work with. She has such a keen and intuitive eye for color and all its subtleties. Betsey does not impose her style but worked with me to help create the look I wanted. I am always impressed by her professionalism and personable approach. I love every color choice she recommended for our renovated space and rooms that needed a fresh update. I receive many compliments on the colors and am always happy to recommend Betsey to a friend."
- Grace Mignosa

"A few years ago we purchased a home in South Burlington. At the time, we were living full-time in NJ and it was challenging to make design changes from so far away. We were so lucky to find Color Concepts. Betsey has an amazing eye, and helped us pick colors for every room in the house, and we could not feel more at home."
