Certificate professional development courses are part of the on-going learning that the Pres Staging & Redesign training programs offer. We recently taught the one-day professional 1-2-3 Paint Colour Scheme Client Colour Course in Victoria BC. While normally we hold our courses in hotels or classrooms, one of the Pres graduates, Karen Alexander generously offered her home for the course.
It was a great turnout of 8 Victoria stagers & 2 Vancouver Pres stagers who mixed and mingled and shared a few laughs! They learned practical colour theory and how to apply it. The Pres courses are all about teaching theory along with practical hands on experience. This is how adults learn best!
Learning the theory for colour schemes!
The 1-2-3 Paint Colour Steps work this way:
1. Start with an inspiration piece that your client just loves – art, fabric, photos, magazines work too but you need something preferably with 3 colours in it.
Dana Miller & Diana Zink know what they like!
Valerie Westra & Josee Lalonde make a soft modern colour choice!
Karen Alexander & Melanie Henson loved this fabric!
2. Using the Interior Design colour wheel – find the colour scheme that works best
Maria Waterman & Linda use the colour wheel for determining the colour scheme!
3. Select your paint colours from the Benjamin Moore paint decks or one that you enjoy working with. At Pres we love Benjamin Moore products and highly recommend them.
The Pres client colour consultation course provides you with 3 fantastic Word document templates that are easy to follow whether it’s your first consultation or your 100th!
