Hi Thanks for inquiring. A consultation generally takes about an hour sometimes an hour and a half. The flat fee inside the Barrie area is $150.00. During the consultation we review short and long term goals and how to enhance your existing hard elements often avoiding costly changes . The most important thing during the consultation is making sure that the ultimate look follows the function and style you would like the house to feel in all aspects. So if you have immediate changes having samples on hand that day can really help . Photos of favourite looks also gives me a heads up on your comfort level. It's amazing to think each colour does possess a particular flavour and customizing your individual palette is the best and most enjoyable part of my job. At the end of the consultation you will receive a full record of the colours selected along with a product and quantity list; all in Benjamin Moore Paint, the finest representation of colour. This also entitles you to a discount at Allandale Decorating Centre located at 393 Yonge St . at the corner of Yonge at Little Ave. It will be by far the very best money you have spent on your home and peace of mind.You can reach me directly at 705 790-2284. I'll look forward to hearing from you. There are still booking times before Christmas and we do gift certificates. Thanks again!
