Regina is fanatical about colour and says: “dont be afraid to use it, “colour is the most economical way to redesign a space.”
As one of Dublin’s leading colour consultants Regina believe’s that colour is an integral part of design. “I love how it can have such an enormous impact on an environment,” she says. “It is such a powerful and influential communication tool that greatly affects our emotions. In a residential environment the objective is to create a cosy atmosphere and connect the multiple elements of design within the space. Creating the perfect tones and contrast can totally transform how you see and feel about your home or business.
Regina offers a full colour consultancy service that will combine colour psychology and current trends to create an interesting palette that offers not only a ‘colour solution’ but also enhances your overall design.

So what happens at a “Colour Consultation” ..
A colour scheme is not something that is chosen randomly, it is dictated by the colour of the “main elements” in your home, the “fixed and big ticket items” like your Kitchen Units, Flooring, Sofa and Bathroom tiles .. the first step when creating a colour scheme is to take an overview of these items, then finding the right balance of colour that creates a flow from one room to the next .. introducing “pops” of colour where needed to enhance the overall design of your home.
A “Colour Consultation” generally takes an hour, if there are a couple of changes being made, for example a new sofa is on its way, it is important to have a fabric swatch.
I always start with a “full walkthrough” and then go from “room to room” always keeping the overall scheme in mind, and when I have finalised the scheme I will email all the colours and finishes to you leaving you with a “ticked” colour card so you can browse through the colours with anticipation.
This service can range from specifying colours for a couple of rooms to consulting for a full interior and exterior with an additional interior design service if required.
Regina will work with any paint product of your choice, but endorses Kraftsmann, Colourtrend Paints, Little Greene and Farrow and Ball.
So if you find yourself in a “colour dilemma” please get in touch, Regina will travel nationwide to consult on all commercial and residential projects, and will always endeavour to implement her professional skill set and creative flair to every project.
