Having grown-up in a family that included several painting contractors, I developed an interest in color at a very young age. I used to love challenging myself to match random objects using a fan deck.
My love of color flourished while working for over fifteen years with professional painting contractors. I experienced such a sense of joy helping our clients find that perfect color.
I am fascinated with the effects that specific colors can have on a space, both visually and mentally. Helping to create that specific feeling my client seeks is very satisfying.

I get a lot of my inspiration from nature. Bringing the outdoors in with the use of colors and textures reminiscent of those found in beach, mountain and desert landscapes.
With the variety of blue hues found in the ocean, the many depths of greens found in a forest, warm tones in a sunset and even a neutral palette found in desert landscape, the color palettes are endless.
And depending on which colors are brought into the design, it can create an environment that either calms and nourishes or energizes and inspires . Either way, you will feel enhanced walking into the space.
"Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you."

"I work in a very stressful business office in a vintage 1904 building. Something about the office was depressing, so I contacted "The Joy of Color" for a consultation. Jenny came to my office equipped with a full array of every color of paint chip you can imagine. She listened to what I wanted, brought her own unique expertise into the conversation and the result was simply amazing. I wanted to feel tranquility emanate from the walls when I came to work, and now they actually do! Everyone who comes to my office comments on how calm it feels. Jenny is very intuitive and knowledgeable about color, how it translates from the paint chip to wall color and how the different colors for walls, trim and ceiling blend together. I highly recommend her without reservation! "
