Services - Color Consultation
EXPERT COLOR, EXPERT SERVICE
Color decisions can be the most difficult part of the process and one of the most important. We understand. Come in and meet our Colorist, Marcy Beard, well known in the Eugene community for helping people create colorful and beautiful spaces. We are continually fielding comments, telephone calls, and thank you notes from her very satisfied customers. Our in-store color decision areas are large, comfortable, and designed to facilitate the process. We provide the best environment, qualified staff, and quality color tools to go along with our best-in-class coatings. It’s worth noting that the best color palettes are selected in the environment in which they will be deployed. If your project demands it, Marcy is available for onsite color consulting through her business, Marcy Beard Color and Redesign.
Color is as physically complex as our emotional response to it. The advent of color-matching computers has led the general public to believe color matching is an easy process. While sophisticated equipment has sped up the process, the laws of physics and the unpredictability of perception still exist. We work past the barriers, beyond the equipment, and produce color matches to the satisfaction of our clients every day. In the end, it’s not a match until the customer, not the computer, says so. If this process is interesting to you, look up metamerism on Wikipedia. The section on metameric failure, the most common of which is illuminant metameric failure, will give you great insight into the complex nature of matching colors.
