Olwyn Grint, Colour Consultant

Testimonials

I'm Olwyn, An Expert in Paint Colours.

Recently I went back to visit one of my clients; I had helped them previously with the paint colours for their single story extension, and all of the rooms on the ground floor. They were now ready to refresh the colours of the upstairs and she wrote to me saying “after your wonderful advice, I can’t possibly go ahead without your help to choose the colours!”

During the course of this second visit my client revealed that her husband had been less than keen to book me initially “why on earth do we need someone to choose paint colours?” However, he was completely on board with me to come back for the second visit; in their family I am known as “The Paint Lady”. My client also said that I was the best money she spent in the whole renovation, and the only thing that went right.

This sums up the two main pieces of feedback I get. Firstly, that my clients feel my service is good value for money and they make colour choices that they would not have been able to make if I had not helped them. And secondly, that someone who is initially sceptical of why they should spend money on something they feel they could do themselves is completely won over by the end of the process.

I love what I do and it makes me very happy to know that my clients appreciate me.

What people say about me

Olwyn helped us choose colours for every surface in our house as we are renovating and it was a godsend! We were overwhelmed by the choice and all the decisions that go with a build process and it was an incredibly helpful session which narrowed down our selection and has meant that I haven't ended up buying loads of tester pots. She had lots of great suggestions of combinations and styles that I hadn't thought of before. So worth the money and I would highly recommend."

Ben

It was great having Olwyn around to go through the colour concept of my home. I had very clear ideas and Olwyn was great taking them in board and really helped me to bring my vision to life. I am absolutely delighted with the results and would recommend Olwyn wholeheartedly.

Bine

Olwyn was just brilliant in helping choose colours for 4 rooms, 2 of which were north facing. She gave me the confidence to go with a couple of colours I had already shortlisted and suggest colours to bring the scheme together. I can't wait to get all the 4 rooms finished so I can share the finished photos with her. I am so glad I booked Olwyn: do it, you'll be so pleased with her recommendations.

Diana

At a stage in our renovation project where I couldn't face another decision, Olwyn's presence was invaluable. She patiently walked through every room of the house with me, helping me to choose a colour which not only worked for the individual room but also worked for the house as a whole. I can't thank Olwyn enough - thanks to her my house won't be painted floor to ceiling in magnolia!

Lizzi

We used Olwyn to help choose colours for our whisky room and hall and can't thank her enough for all the help she gave us! I saved countless hours of arguments with my husband and Olwyn suggested things we never would have thought of. She has a great eye for what will work and has incredible attention to detail. It's not often you get such a fantastic service and we can't wait to redecorate the rest of the house now so we can use Olwyn again!

Lesley

Olwyn was highly recommended to us by friends and we are thrilled with the service and end result. Olwyn came to our rescue when we were struggling to decide on paint colours for our kitchen and
dining room. Olwyn took onboard our own ideas and compiled three different options taking everything into account and also advised us on all aspects of the decorating, such as paint finishes and ideas for curtains. Olwyn was extremely kind, helpful, honest, professional and efficient, and was always happy to respond to our questions, even very last minute ones about ceiling colours! Thank you, Olwyn.

Maria

Olwyn has such good ideas and if you are someone like me needs ideas and then can decide way with colour scheme

Delia

Olwyn's help with choosing colours has transformed the upstairs of our house. She spent a morning with me amid a (rather stressful) loft conversion to advise colours for four bedrooms and the hall/stairs/landing.

Using our fabric swatches and taking on board the various preferences for the children's rooms, she guided us through different colours that I would never have considered.

Each room is different but the whole scheme works together, so when the doors of the rooms are open, each colour complements the others around it.

Olwyn produced a dedicated swatch book that helped us save hours and money on unnecessary tester pots.

One of our best decisions was booking Olwyn!

Ann

Olwyn is so brilliant. She is very talented and easy to work with.

Lucy H

With a whole house renovation under way and the builders asking me for paint colour choices, I needed help! I had some Pinterest boards and a few ideas of colours I liked but was not confident enough to choose an interesting whole house scheme and didn’t want to just go boring. So luckily I found Olwyn!

Olwyn is a lovely person with great knowledge of and enthusiasm for colour, paint and interiors. She listened to my ideas and got a feel for what I liked and then we went through every room in the home picking and coordinating colours. This was incredibly interesting and fun and has saved me a lot of time trying out countless testers and deliberating. I’m really happy with the final scheme and can’t wait to see what it all looks like when out project is finished.

I highly recommend Tickled Pink! Thank you Olwyn!

Olwyn from Tickled Pink Interiors has done a fantastic job in helping me choose paint colours for my Lounge, Hallway and Dinning room. I have had refurbishment work done to my house. I was struggling to chose color for the walls as I wanted to use my existing furniture and fittings and wanted give the room a new look.
Olwyn was friendly, positive and very creative with the color choice. She took her time understanding what I was looking to create. She showed the colors with her swatches against the walls, which helped me to make an informed decision. She gave details of the suppliers where I could get the paint from.
Having painted my room, I am very thrilled with the result I have got. I feel I made the right choice in using Olwyn for color consultation as I have not only saved time and money but created awesome rooms.
I highly recommend Tickled Pink Interior for your color consultation when decorating your house or room.

We recently undertook a kitchen refurb, repainting the cupboards and retiling splash backs, alongside keeping existing wall colour and flooring. I was struggling to visualise how it would all hang together so I contacted Olwyn for her help with paint choices. She was so helpful in going through all the colour options that would work with what we already had, and explaining why others wouldn’t work so well, and helping us to think outside our comfort zone too! This saved us a fortune in buying testers, and meant we were confident in our choices before work started. The finished result is a much brighter and more modern space and we are thrilled with it. I would thoroughly recommend Olwyn to anyone struggling with colour choices, in fact I already have several times!

Claire L

We came to Olwyn when looking to decorate a new build house. After having made so many decisions we were a bit fatigued and unsure where to start with paint colours and there was a lot of choices to make.

Olwyn listened to my thoughts and ideas and provided good advice, suggesting different options to help me work out what I preferred. I changed my mind a few times and she was always happy to help, even after the initial site visits by email and phone.

Our house is the calm, bright, and welcoming space we were hoping for, largely down to the beautiful colour palette she created and we couldn't be happier.

The cost of her expertise was worth every penny and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.

Helen K

Appointing Olwyn to help pick the paint colours for my house was the best decision I made in my refurbishment.  She chose colours that I would have gone for if I knew what I was doing, as well as encouraging some design features I would never have considered, such as painting a ceiling the same colour as the walls.  Every room is different, but all of the colours work perfectly for the function of the room and the light conditions throughout the day. The cost of repainting just one room to correct for the errors I would have inevitably made would have been far more than her fees so she really is excellent value for money" 

Matt

Olwyn helped me choose colour for my newly renovated house - from top to bottom. She went out of her way to come on site at short notice (& up ladders!) and helped me choose colours that matched my tiles, my overall vision and worked to find a really cohesive scheme through the house. She also helped me be really brave (with my F&B Railings skirtings!) and work through the detail of transition points. It totally took the stress out of the process and no ‘sledges ’ of colour on my new walls. Everyone who has come to our new home has commented on the colours. We love every single one!

Pia

Olwyn’s visit was so helpful

We would have spent ages trying to choose the colours to decorate our house with & still not have been certain

Olwyn works with the lighting & existing furniture to guide you to confidently choosing the right colours

Her ideas were brilliant & we are delighted with the results

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her service

Sue

Olwyn came and helped me decide which paint colours to use through our home after some building renovations. She was very helpful and efficient, and we love the colours she helped choose. She clearly enjoys her work and was very insightful!

Clare

Choosing paint for one room seemed like such a daunting job, much less coming up with a complimentary scheme for the entire house, but with Olwyn’s expertise we managed to do it, and thoroughly enjoyed the process! Can’t wait to see the transformation of our home! Highly recommend Olwyn’s services for anyone needing some decorating inspiration.

Mandy

Olwyn is extremely knowledgeable about home decor. She has a fantastic eye for colour and helped us to choose colours that we would not have thought about, or been brave enough to try. She is professional, extremely responsive and helpful. I would absolutely recommend her and cannot wait to see our house when the decorator has finished.

                  Lucy W

Olwyn is hugely knowledgeable and professional and clearly knows her trade. She visited us following a paint consultation she did for a family member that impressed me, and helped us choose a paint colour scheme for the whole of our house. This was no mean feat as my partner and I have widely differing tastes and she advised and challenged us well so we both got what we wanted and were delighted with the outcome she provided.

Anna

Olwyn has been a huge help in choosing colours for a number of rooms in my house. She spent time finding out about my ideas and then developed a colour palate that worked throughout the house. Certainly some of her colour choices were far more interesting than mine!

The report we received afterwards was so informative and our painter loved the detailed instructions. The colour swatches are a great idea to work with. We’ve gone with all Olwyn’s colour suggestions and not needed a single tester pot!

Elin

We used Olwyn after a major renovation to our house. During the renovation we had made so many decisions that by the time we came to think about decorating we were mentally exhausted! Olwyn was fantastic in that she came to the building site when the project was not yet completed and talked to us about what we wanted to achieve. Within the morning we had walked around all the spaces looking at her swatches and picking her brain. Olwyn helped us to identify opportunities and make colour decisions for 7 spaces in just one morning, we wouldn’t have achieved this without her.

Olwyn also provides a swatch of all the paints chosen. This has been great for taking shopping for furnishing etc. She has also been on hand to help with queries after the consultation.

It has been a great experience working with Olwyn, well worth her consultation fee. I would highly recommend.

Helen B

What's not to love!

Nobody needs 15 tester paint pots and the associated splodges on the wall. Olwyn comes in and gives you the confidence to paint your rooms in colours that you'll love but that also work with the natural light the room has and the furniture that is in the room. Life changing - well worth the money. Finally choosing paint is enjoyable!

Rachel

Olwyn provided her colour consultancy service for our new home in St Albans. We live in a period property and she provided her inspiration for 4 rooms and the hallways. I cannot recommend her highly enough! She took time to understand the look that we were wanting to achieve which was making the house look contemporary and cool, whilst complimenting the period features. She has tonnes of good ideas, which we would never have come up with ourselves! I cannot wait until the house is finished . Thanks again Olwyn for your help.
