PRES Client Colour Consultation Course in Victoria BC Rocks!

Certificate professional development courses are part of the on-going learning that the PRES Staging & Redesign training programs offer. We recently taught the one-day professional 1-2-3 Paint Colour Scheme Client Colour Course in Victoria BC. While normally we hold our courses in hotels or classrooms, one of the PRES graduates, Karen Alexander generously offered her home for the course.

It was a great turnout of 8 Victoria stagers & 2Vancouver PRES stagers who mixed and mingled and shared a few laughs! They learned practical colour theory AND how to apply it. The PRES courses are all about teaching theory along with practical hands on experience. This is how adults learn best!

Learning the theory for colour schemes!

The 1-2-3 Paint Colour Steps work this way:

1. Start with an inspiration piece that your client just LOVES – art, fabric, photos, magazines work too but you need something preferably with 3 colours in it.

Dana Miller & Diana Zink know what they like!

Valerie Westra & Josee Lalonde make a soft modern colour choice!
Karen Alexander & Melanie Henson loved this fabric!

2. Using the Interior Design colour wheel – find the colour scheme that works best

Maria Waterman & Linda use the colour wheel for determining the colour scheme!

3. Select your paint colours from the Benjamin Moore paint decks or one that you enjoy working with. At PRES we love Benjamin Moore products and highly recommend them.

The PRES client colour consultation course provides you with 3 fantastic Word document templates that are easy to follow whether it’s your first consultation or your 100th!

Colleen McClure Administrator & Proud owner of PRES Staging® - Expert Home Stager. When I was very young I began drawing interiors, it just came naturally. When I work with a client now, I see the finished project completed in my minds-eye as they explain how they would love to see their space created. I am able to provide sketches on the spot of their vision so this invokes client confidence and excitement for the project from the inception through to the brilliant manifestation – How Fun! When the economy did not support the luxury of home improvements, other passions led me to full-time work as a career counsellor. I very much enjoyed assisting people one-on-one to discover their own talents but this was an arena where I would develop effective techniques in workshop design and group facilitation as well. This would lead to a ‘happy marriage’ as I would apply these skills and passions when I purchased PRES Staging® - The Professional Real Estate Staging Centre. It’s truly the greatest joy to inspire others to discover and hone their innate talents – To witness their emerging confidence while coaching them on design principals and providing them the tools to start and run their own Home Décor businesses for Redesign and Staging.
