Sherwin-Williams STIR – Nicole Curtis and the perfect color


[music playing] I think every little girl
fantasizes about living in a castle and having this little
imaginary life and for me old houses
have always been my castle. I’m Nicole Curtis, designer,
contractor, real estate agent, mom and saver of old homes. I really work
with clients to figure out “What’s really gonna work for you?” “What are you using this home for?” “What’s the feeling
that you want to achieve when you sit in this room?” My best moment of creative design is when I am actually
standing in the room it’s sitting right before me and I get the feel of the room, I look around and I know
exactly what I’m gonna do. I’m a pretty boring first date because someone will say,
“What’s your favorite color?” and my answer is white. My color palette is classic,
simple and timeless. It always consists of
an off-white, another white a brown, a gray,
a little bit of blue and sometimes an accent
color that I just throw in for fun. Even the most simple
old home has beautiful windows. Sunny day, you walk in and that color that didn’t seem
like a color to some 5 minutes ago or looked a bit like a white color really now has become
this very different color palette. The case house for me
was love at first sight. I love these old homes because they remind me that there was a time
when things were more simple. This house is 140 years old and we are going
to make it beautiful again. When I first walked into this room the walls were falling down, there were water leaks,
the floor was just a mess, there was nothing
pretty about this room. But just seeing
the details that were here, this was designed
to be a very beautiful room. The case kitchen was another example
of just complete neglect. The original wainscoting was here. What a perfect spot
for bright white! I love to paint. Paint is just a very simple thing. It keeps my budget down and it
makes such a quick transformation. I’m Nicole Curtis
and my perfect home is all white.
