Meet Kylie M

Thank you for visiting my paint colour blog, I’m glad you’re here!

Were you online searching for a sassy lil’ Ginger (freckles and all) with a rolodex of paint colours spinning through her brain – a real colour expert? If not, I’d have to question your priorities (wink wink).

I bet you’re wondering what brought me here. I’ve always been the type of gal who marches to the beat of her own drum, which comes in darn handy in a creative industry! But it also gave my career path some extra curves. The world likes to pretend that 9-5 is a one-size-fits-all thing, but it was clear from the beginning that my creative beast would not be cubicled.

That’s not to say I didn’t tick any of the traditional boxes before landing on self-employment. I have some post-secondary training in Interior Decorating and Design, and I did some boot camp for a few years in the paint and decor departments of Home Depot. The problem is that I didn’t want to mix paint for a living. I wanted to mix my love for connecting with people with my drive to offer colour strategy…and I wanted to do it on my own time – or rather, thanks to my personal quirks, I NEEDED to do it on my own time. Going independent with colour consulting made my soul sing!

“My goal is to create homes that are authentic to the souls that live there instead of what is purely popular or trendy.”

Fast forward a few years, and I’ve got more than 5000 homes under my belt, 275 articles, and am a leading colour consultant in all of North America. And just to make sure I never think about ANYTHING else (obsessive personality traits), I also started this lil’ ole blog as a way to purge my creative demons when I’m not working with my E-Design clients or tearing the walls down in our own home. Oh, or hangin’ with my peeps – Tim (the hubby), Cassie and Maggie (the girls) and of course, Doug (the dog cross donkey).

This is a learn-to-decorate blog, not a ‘look-what-Kylie-can-do’ blog.

Here, you’ll find hundreds of articles on how to create the home of your dreams. What you won’t find is filler or fake praise of brands that I don’t actually care about – if I give the thumbs up to a product, it’s because I genuinely like it. Does that mean I only write a blog post every week or two? Yup. But here’s the upside: The stuff you get is good – no filler, no by-product, just good old-fashioned helpful content.

And btw…did you know that the only other person working with me is Tim? That’s right, we’re a husband and wife team! He does the office (boring) end of things and I’m the creative side – pretty cool if you ask me.

Do you need help, but aren’t quite sure what ‘help’ looks like? Are you drowning in paint samples and decision fatigue?

Does every colour you like at the paint store look terrible in your lighting or pick up a funky undertone? I’d love to help.
