Having problems picking the right color because you are stumped by so called “undertones”? Are the paint colors you have selected shifting blue, green or another color once they are on the wall? Not sure how to pick the right white? Wondering what paint colors will go with the countertops you have selected for your kitchen or bath remodel? Wondering if that countertop will go with your existing flooring or other fixed finishes? Not sure how to find the right paint colors to go with that rug, piece of art or furniture that you want to use in your design? I can take the guesswork out of all of these things by using the art and science of color.

Other People’s Successes
We had an excellent experience working with Mary Ann! We contacted Northern Lights Home Staging and Design through Houzz and before our first meeting she had already started working on color ideas for our home addition. Ms. Benoit spent time before and after our consultation working on colors and design with us, communicating via email, so that in addition to our “official” consultation, she gave us a good deal of her professional time. Mary Ann Benoit is easy to work with and down-to-earth. Our anxiety about working with a design professional was put to rest within the first 5 minutes of our consultation, allowing us to to be open about our preferences and ideas while remaining open to hers. We highly recommend Northern Lights Home Staging and Design both for professional knowledge and results, and for being a pleasure to work with. S. Lambert- Eagle River, AK
We were extremely happy with the color consultation service provided by Mary Ann Benoit of Northern Lights Home Staging and Design. She was absolutely able to resolve our color issues for our exterior painting project for our home. The color options she provided made it so easy for us to decide what to choose. She gave us several options to choose from. After the first round of options we wanted to make some changes and that was such a simple process. Mary Ann made it easy for us to make our final selections.
I would highly advise anyone in need of a color consultation to use Mary Ann. Her professionalism and knowledge are top notch. She made the chore of picking house colors seem so easy! Jason Bressler, Anchorage.
