Architecture & Interior Design

We’ll help you create successful color solutions for your architectural & interior design projects.

About our expertise

We're dedicated to the art and science of color. And much more. We also have a background in the scientific analysis of historical colors.

Worth noting is that Colorcom's Jill Morton has served as adjunct faculty at the School of Architecture, University of Hawaii and the Interior Design Department at Chaminade University. She teaches undergraduate courses in "Color Theory" and a graduate level course – "The Psychological and Physiological Effects of Color" – for architectural design. It's the first of its kind in advanced education for architects.

Color matters

Consider this quote about color:
Color is an alchemical force: one with the ability to change a space, a mood or even a mind-set.

Not hocus - pocus. It's true and it's espcially so in architectural and interior design. In fact color affects our experiences as powerfully – if not more powerfully – than it does in other designs. But it does more: Color  enhance sthe architectural form. When you need both the psychological and aesthetic effects of color you're able to create awe-inspiring design. We can help.
