The perfect color delights the eye, triggers an emotional reaction, and accomplishes a mission.  Color is the great manipulator and can make a room  look larger, smaller, taller, shorter, warmer or cooler.  Yet, it is the most intimidating of the design and staging process. Which is exactly why JoAnne created the Confident Color System. The JLW Company Color Classes  are taught only by JoAnne and Sandra Racz of The-DSA.
