PICK colour consultancy

Find choosing paint colour almost as toe-curling as watching it dry? Us too. Time to call in the colour consultants.

We’ve all been there. Deciding you’re going to re-paint is the easy part — a simple way to zhush things up! It’ll be like a whole new room in no time, you think. But then comes the hard bit. Should you go for Elephant’s Tears or Dove’s Eyelashes? God forbid you decorate the whole room and then don’t like it. But how can you be sure? That’s why we love PICK, the Bucks / Oxon colour consultancy that knows exactly what it’s doing.

Founder Flick Smith has extensive professional history with Farrow & Ball, and can claim a hefty 10 years as one of their original (and most successful) in-home colour consultants, honing a frankly stunning palette. No months of umm-ing and ahh-ing here, which is something (speaking from experience) your harried family members will be sure to appreciate.

Thanks to backgrounds of years working with light and space, putting schemes together, PICK consultants know exactly which shades will work best where. We might fancy ourselves pretty up on our interior design (our sense of aesthetics is excellent, thank you very much), but we have to bow to the fine-tuned eye of experts, who are bursting with tips and tricks and know how to bring the right decorative elements to a room.

With several consultancy options available (in-house, virtually, over email…), there’s no excuse not to book a session pronto.
