    Hi, I am Denise Willard with Decor by Denise, and today I am here discussing the psychology of color and how best to leverage this information to build out a perfect color palette for your home. Right now we are going to discuss the professional resources you have available to you should you get stuck along the way. With the advent of the Internet there is a plethora of information out there that you can draw upon, so thats the first source to go to, because it's free and there is tons of it. Secondly, you can certainly draw upon a colorist for his or her expertise, as well as interior decorators and designers who are more than well-versed in color selection and color palette development. Lastly, if you know of a paint store that has a decorating department, you certainly can draw upon those folks to help you out as well.

    So, that's a little bit about the professional resources that you have at hand should you need extra help as you build out your palette for your home.
