Would you like to know how to hone into the perfect color in minutes instead of hours? Instead of agonizing over the 1000+ choices in a paint deck, you could narrow it down quickly and correctly every time with the patented Color with No Regrets System. Kimberley Chagnon of Kim’s Upholstery located in Greenfield Massachusetts learned just that in a recently completed color certification training, “Color with No Regrets” a patented selection process. Completion of this intensive class earned Chagnon the distinction of becoming a CCNRC. (Certified Color with No Regrets Consultant) This designation is held by less than 1000 people in the world.
The two-day class and patented system was created by JoAnne Lenart-Weary, industry expert and founder of the Decorating and Staging Academy, along with Cyndie Stefanik, a 20-year decorative painting veteran and color guru. They have been featured in magazines, HGTV and on a weekly segment on local ABC affiliate, WJET-TV. The patented Color with NO Regrets System is based on the science of the color Kim’s Upholstery and combining levels of color intensity to create perfect harmonies for a client quickly and effectively. The process begins with a quick color test that helps the client to hone in on the palette appealing to the client. “Most people begin the color selection process by asking the question, “What is your favorite color?” says Lenart-Weary.” We have found this question does not truly communicate the client’s preferences. For example, if a client states blue, each of us would visualize a different blue. The color test helps the color consultant hone into the perfect blue. The end result is the CNR Perfect palette. This is the color selection all about the client and not the decorator.”
“Color is a significant element of the decorating process and also the most intimidating,” said Chagnon. “I have a responsibility to my clients to be the best I can be to help them create the space of their dreams. This training has helped me offer mistake-proof color selection to my clients with complete confidence.” Kim’s Upholstery specializes in creating beautiful homes on any budget. Some of the services we offer are custom window treatments, slip covers and bedding but each of them begins with fail-proof color selection, resulting in a room people love with a price tag they can afford,” explained Chagnon.

Kim – Congrats on offering another value to your customers! Will you do color consults or work it into your overall design for the room? So many people need help in choosing great colors for the walls and cannot trust themselves to make a selection alone. I have also considered doing this class, but always put it off. Let me know how it is elevating your status and getting you new customers (with added income, hopefully). Thanks for sharing and doing what you can to enhance your design business!
Thanks for your comment JoEllen. We will be doing both, consults and using it in our designs. The class has helped me to streamline my approach to color choise and coordination.
