It's difficult to imagine someone more qualified to be a professional color consultant than Laurie Lundgren1. First and foremost, she's a talented artist: a God-given gift she uses to create masterful murals and faux finishes for the interior walls of homes and businesses. And then there's her training and experience. Laurie earned her B.A. in communication with complementary emphases in printing, graphic arts, and business administration; and she's been a professional color consultant for more than 18 years. So she's not only trained to listen and hear what you desire in the way of decorating your home. She brings formal training and economic sense to the enterprise. Laurie likes to remind her clients that "paint is a design tool, not just a protective coating for your walls." She explains that she "loves to enter a home and take inspiration from what's already there," and that one of her chief design goals is to "create a unity of color that flows from room to room." But probably the most telling remark about Laurie and her approach to decorating is this one: "I want my client's to love their house more than they did before they met me!"
