If you have an eye for color, selecting your personal palette may not cause trauma, but if not, you’re in danger of exhausting the family fortune on paint samples alone, and exhausting the family patience as you paint and then repaint, searching for the perfect shade. Whether or not you ever get there is anybody’s guess.
One way to avoid the brain damage and ensure a look you will love is to call James Martin and his colorful crew at The Color People, 920 Inca St., just a block east of historic Santa Fe Dr.
Martin has been in the business of devising stunning color schemes for residential properties and commercial developments for nearly three decades, and has that feel for color that you wish belonged to you. The Color People have worked in all 50 states and abroad, with local projects including the Washington Park Boat House, numerous notable Victorian residences, half of Larimer Square, the Magnolia Hotel, and – back in the day – the Ogden and Bluebird theaters.
As further evidence of his credentials to put a fresh face on your particular Ponderosa, Martin was recently elected president of the Color Marketing Group, an international organization specializing in color trends and forecasting.
If you’ve been thinking that spring is a great time to freshen the homestead, call The Color People, 303-308-0220, or visit www.colorpeople.com.
