"creating a space that is personal to you..."
Hi, I'm Trudi. I am a Canberra based colour designer and owner of Taylored Colour Concepts.
I am a graduate of the International School of Colour and Design having studied a diploma in colour design.
I started this business because I wanted to help people achieve a home that reflects who they are with the use of colours and finishes. A home should make you feel good when you are in it, a place where you feel relaxed and a beautiful space to hang out with your family and friends.
The challenge was that I didn’t know where to start with starting this business. I was overwhelmed with everything I needed to do to make it happen.
I originally started studying interior design and loved the process until I had to measure up spaces. I hated this part and I wasn’t very good at it. I wanted to get back to the aesthetics side of it. This made me realised that I wasn’t going to cut it in this field and, even if I did, I only enjoyed the styling, the selection of colours and finishes and putting them together. So this is what I focussed on. I wanted a job that I was passionate about, something I loved doing every day. I had done many years of jobs that I really didn’t enjoy that much and I didn’t want to spend the rest of my working life doing something that my heart wasn’t in.
What I love most about colour is how it can affect your emotions like no other design element.. Selecting the right colours for your home can improve your mood, mindset and emotions and I want to show people how they can achieve this. I want to demonstrate that having a stylish home is affordable and available to everyone. After all, your home is such a huge investment and you should be proud to show it off.
Whether you are building a new home, renovating, redecorating or selling your home, I can guide you indesigning a colour scheme that reflects the style of your home as well as your lifestyle and personality. I am committed to helping you create a space that adds value to your home and is a reflection of you and the way you live.
I appreciate that colour is a very personal thing and I will work with you to make the best colour choices that match the look you want to create for your home.
