Jan Taliercio Interiors, Color & Design

Hello!  Welcome to my inaugural blog for Jan Taliercio Interiors.  As you can see, the emphasis is on Interiors, but with Color and Design as my focus.  Did you ever pick up a paint swatch at your favorite home center, fall in love with the prospect of a beautiful newly painted look for your room, paint it, then, ugh!  I hate it!?  Well, I did!  More times than I can remember.  (I chalked it up to “the things you learn.”)  Whether you hire a painter, or are happy to do-it-yourself, choosing the wrong color can be a costly mistake.  That is/was so frustrating!

Since closing our home decorating store, Decor ‘n Gifts, at the end of March 2016, after being in business in Naples, Florida for 16 years, I knew I wanted to continue to help people with their home decor, but I wanted to have an answer that I would feel confident in giving if I were asked “What color do you think I should paint this room?”  Well, I could feel my palms starting to sweat just thinking about that, so I decided to follow my dreams and pursue decorating with some strong support.  I looked for training and found Maria Killam’s course.  Perfect!  Maria is the  internationally known  creator of her Understanding Undertones course.   Now as a newly certified, True Colour Expert, armed with my “ask me and I’ll tell you” attitude, I can confidently tell you not only what the correct color for your room or home is, but also WHY it is correct.

That, is quite an accomplishment!  Thank you, Maria!
