Color Consultation

If you’ve just made your sixth trip to the hardware store to buy another quart of sample paint, please stop!  Call the expert!

Design guru Scott Neste’s keen sense of color and palette building will save your poor walls from looking like Grandma Sophie’s patchwork quilt.  Scott’s approach to comprehensive paint palette building begins with a careful and thoughtful review of your current or planned for surroundings.  Care is given to ensure wood tones, natural stone surfaces, carpet or rugs, art and all other furnishings are considered.  We’ll consider the natural and artificial lighting.  We’ll understand your needs, your dreams and the colors you feel drawn to.  Selecting the perfect colors and strategically planning color placement is critical.  

Minor Details works with many paint lines and consideration is given to recommending the best line for your project.  Color, sheen and paint type is important to specify – we can help.

client testimonial

I'm a new client of Scott Neste and his business Minor Details having recently moved to Tacoma's North End from the city of San Francisco. I've always been a renter and have never put too much thought into what my personal style is on the home front because my apartment or flat in SF always represented a "way station" for me. My move to Tacoma represented an opportunity to buy a home and begin to create a "grown up" house. Now, I'm never going to give up my framed vintage concert posters from The Fillmore but after meeting Scott I now have a collaborator that can help me bring to life a really cool rock and roll inspired media room that spotlights my 1966 Doors poster or a beautiful family room and living room where I can entertain friends or read a good book in front of a toasty fire. This is the first time I've worked with an interior designer and Scott makes the process really fun and easy. For example, I'm a very visual person and after getting overwhelmed looking at books of beautiful rugs Scott designed for me on paper a representation of the rooms we were designing that featured different color palettes and ideas for furniture and light fixtures. After looking at my options, I knew with absolute certainty the direction I wanted to go in with the color and the feel of the space. I think one of the biggest benefits of being a client of Scott's is he listens and just really, really good at what he does because he's passionate about design. He's helping me define my style and guiding me towards pieces that will not only work in my current rental home but in my home I hope to buy in the future. My space is so important to me and with Scott on my team I will be able to confidently create a home that reflects who I am-- one that captures my passion for beauty, music and has an element of surprise. In summary, Scott is a top-notch designer, a great person and has a client for life!
