Colour Advice

Choosing the colours for your home is exciting but can also be daunting. There are so many brands and shades, it is sometimes hard to know where to start.

That’s where our Colour Consultant, Fi O’Donoghue can help. Fi can guide you through the process, working out the kind of look or feel you are going for and suggesting options and schemes that match.

Fi is available to visit your home and bring everything to you. After the visit she will provide a full written report of the colours and paints chosen. This will be by both room and surface. We will also open a cash account for you, giving a 5% discount** and free sample pots.


About Fi O'Donoghue

“I have always had a passion for interiors and so during 2004, I founded a decorating company, which is still going strong today. I started this business with a friend (Jane Peckitt) because we wanted to provide an efficient and reliable decorating service that worked around family commitments. As time went on, more and more decorating clients would ask for colour advice when it came to the time of choosing paint. Over the last 18 years I have helped hundreds of clients with their colour schemes. Whether it’s a helping hand, some reassurance or completely reimaging your space I can help you find the best shades for you and your home.

Throughout my time in the industry, I’ve used Bailey Paints almost exclusively because I know I’ll always get expert product knowledge and a friendly service. Needless to say, I’m thrilled to be working with the team and am looking forward to bringing my expertise and insight to the colour consultancy side of the business.” Fi

“Having not known quite what to expect we were very impressed with Fi. She really listened and was great with her suggestions.” Ed
