Fear of Commitment

People often ask me what the best and worst parts of my job as a color consultant are.

The best part is easy to answer; I love working with people and helping them uncover their hidden color choices. People often start an appointment by telling me that they have no idea what color to choose and that they’re not any good at “decorating stuff”. However, 99.9% of the time, people do know exactly what they like and they just need a small amount of guidance to get to their perfect color. I love the look on a client’s face when they know they’ve chosen the color that they really wanted all along.

After much thought, I realized what frustrates me the most is when a customer can’t commit to their color choice.

Sometimes the lack of commitment requires a simple tweak of the color for the client to be happy. Other times, it’s not so easy. Some people fear committing to a color because it’s too different from what they’re used to. Sometimes people are afraid of what others will think of their choice.

I encourage everyone to really think and feel when choosing a color. Be a little daring, if you’re feeling it. If you’re looking for serenity, go for it. Get funky, if that’s what you want.

The important thing is to fully commit to your choice. Own it, Baby.
