The Best Bet
The autumnal equinox takes place on September 23, which means by the end of next month the warm, rosy-toned sunlight now bathing New York will take on that crisp, pitiless blue quality—and your dinged-up walls will strike you as particularly drab. Instead of slapping on yet another coat of decorator’s white (eggshell), call Carla Weisberg. She’s primarily known for her surface designs for interiors—fabrics, wallpapers, rugs, and architectural elements—but she’s also got a burgeoning color-consulting business. First, she interviews to determine likes and dislikes, how and when various rooms are used, and what kind of light (natural and unnatural) illuminates the home. Then she creates color cards—sometimes one for each room, or a palette with accents for different areas—that are tested and revised. It’s up to the client to hire a painter, but for an additional fee, Weisberg will consult during that process as well. Start now and you’ll have flawless walls for the holidays ($2,000 minimum fee for apartments under 2,500 square feet; 212-620-5276).
