Get the help you need, Right Now.
Even if you have already done initial color selection yourself, you can see what they look like before you paint.
What does that mean?
Three DCP™ Design Packages: get the details
All include personal communication with Barbara Jacobs and colored versions of your home or other building, using the images you provide.
- If you’ve selected colors yourself and want to see how they will look,
you can see results using colors from many paint companies.
- If you also need some help selecting colors, that is always an option.
- Some call it “virtual painting,” but it’s more realistic looking than you might think.
- All original texture and details of your image remain in tact and realistic.
An example: Large condo complex
Shown: two proposed color schemes of the same buildings: “Scheme 1,” and two options for “Scheme 2.”
Here’s the same condo group, after painting with the new colors.
On an smaller scale, these are three digital views of options for a home’s exterior colors.
