One of those why-didn’t-they-think-of-that before developments: the paint company Farrow & Ball is now offering at-home color consultations (the British firm calls them “colour” consults, natch.) Deets: Book an appointment by calling the local showroom at 312-222-9620; the charge is $200 per hour, bookable in one-hour sessions. You’ll get advice on up to four rooms for a one-hour appointment (depending on the complexity and size of the rooms). You’ll have to pony up travel charges if you live outside of a 10-mile radius of the Merchandise Mart. But hey, your rooms can look as cool as those in the Farrow & Ball catalogue!
