I hired Sylvia from Colour Theory to choose the colours for my home. Her professional knowledge and expertise left us with the answers we were looking for. Two years later, I still love the colours that she chose for us. We repainted one of my rooms and we used the exact colour again.
I would never ever think of painting my house again without consulting Sylvia O'Brien. Thank you Sylvia - you are the greatest!

Nick and I wanted to thank you again for your advice and expertise with our the colours for our home. We just had the house painted a few weeks ago and things are finally back in order. The colours you helped us choose are fabulous.... it looks like a different home!
We were so amazed at how you were able to select the colours that we liked and have them match so well with our furniture and style. Our home is warm and inviting and we have received so many compliments.

"What can I say about colour? With Sylvia (Colour Theory) she puts the
'U' back in colour. She takes into consideration who you are, as well as what you like before she even begins to help you decide what colours will
work for you.
When my partner and I moved our offices we had a blank palette. It made
sense to call Sylvia, after all, she IS the expert! Within a few hours we
had office colours that were a reflection of who we were, and they
complimented the overall look and feel of our new space."
Donna Messer, Connectus Canada , Oakville, Ontario
"I just had my house painted and just moved back in (you helped me with my
paint colours). It's beautiful! It's just wonderful! I want to thank you very much - you're worth every single cent and I'd be happy to pass your
name on to anyone... The colours are just wonderful!"
Diane D. , Etobicoke, Ontario
"Sylvia O'Brien's collaborative style, careful listening skills, tact and warm
personality all helped in turning an otherwise stressful process of colour
selection for our new home into a highly enjoyable and fun experience. We
were delighted by the results, which have transformed our home into a place
of beauty. We've recieved numerous positive comments from friends about the
new colours, and I recommend Sylvia to all my friends and colleagues."
Marilyn M. , Toronto , Ontario.
"They just finished painting my dining room and I love it! I went with
the lavendar colour (you gave me two colour choices) and it's georgeous. It
fits in so well with the other colours in my house and believe it or not, it
even blends in with my old dining chairs. Maybe I won't reupholster them
I used to keep my dining room door closed but now it's wide open for all
my visitors to see. Thank you so much."
Fern S. , Toronto , Ontario
"I recently had my condo painted and wanted to let you know that I
really like the way things turned out, especially the accent wall in the
den. Everyone that sees my place loves the colours and I always tell them
about my experience working with you and how helpful, and well worth it, it
was. Thank you."
Janet R. , Mississauga, Ontario
"Many thanks for the beautiful work you did in our home. You transformed a stark white house into a warm, rich and inviting environment. I will never change a colour without you.

"Sylvia O'Brien (of Colour Theory) is a colour consultant of considerable skill and imagination. She articulates and translates her clients' vision of their office environment into unique surroundings that are warm, comfortable and appealing"
P. Wearing, of Wearing/Lenoury Barristers and Solicitors, Toronto
"Sylvia's knowledge and skill put fun into the overwhelming task of choosing colours for the interior and exterior of our home. We would still be swimming in a sea of colours if it weren't for her. Now we have calming, soothing wall colours that enhance the beauty of our space and feel a sense of accomplishment because we got the job done instead of procrastinating for fear of making the wrong choices. I highly recommend Colour Theory's services!"
Diana R., Toronto
"As a dentist with a lot of children as patients, it was important for me to take the clinical edge off my office and operating rooms. I hired Sylvia at colour theory to help me get a more welcoming environment. Using a Monet print in my reception area, she came up with a combination of four colours (all blues and mauves) and selected a patterned carpet that completely altered the mood. I get many compliments for my redecorating. Thank you Sylvia, and Colour Theory!
Dr. Chu, Toronto
"I want you to know how thrilled I am with our working relationship. I truly enjoy the projects we have worked on together over the last few years. Your passion for colour speaks for itself any time someone walks into a space you have specified the colour choices for. Working with you has opened my eyes to options and colour combinations I otherwise would not have thought of. As a business colleague I would not hesitate to recommend you and your company to my favorite clients and associates. I look forward to our next project together."
Anita W., Principal, Wiklem Design Inc.
"We spent the last four months renovating our first home and a month of that looking at paint chips, magazines, asking friends' opinions and watching too many Trading Spaces episodes. We needed help and heard about Colour Theory.
What a relief! Sylvia helped us pick paint colours we like, and tiles for the kitchen too. She created a flow of colour that blended with the two rooms we had already painted. We even got the red we love that we weren't sure where to put it. It was a treat to go to the paint store with all our colours decided, which saved us a lot of time and money.
Of all the expenses we've had to renovate the house, hiring a consultant for colour was the best decision we made because the colours are what really show the house in the end. After all our hard work, we had to get the colours right. So it was worth it.
We would highly recommend Sylvia and colour theory even if you think you know what you want. She helped my husband and I agree, and to pick colours we like and feel confident about. It saved us a lot of money and stress in the end. Thanks"
