I am obsessed with color. For over 20 years, I helped friends and family to choose colors for the exterior and interiors of their homes. A few years ago I decided to get serious and become a Certified Architectural Color Consultant (CACC) I researched and researched and I decided on the ColorIQ program with Teresa Tullio. It was the best choice decision of my life! ColorIQ is SO much more than your average color training course - you get Teresa Tullio as part of the package. I not only learned how to specify color but I learned how to design with color. With the knowledge I learned from the courses and with Teresa as my mentor, I learned that there is so much more than just specifying color. Did you know up to 80% of your color consultation is the placement of color? Do you know how to successfully run a color business? I now love color more than ever and I am now a successful and sought after Architectural Color Consultant. so much that I had to hire help. As my second career, I am now doing something that I absolutely love!

Color it Current
"I chose ColorIQ's online CACC course after extensive research and now, after becoming certified, I am confident this is the industry-leading educational platform for success as a color consultant. In addition to well-organized printed and online curriculum, Teresa invested in my growth by offering 1:1 weekly Zoom sessions to ensure new material was fully understood. Having come to the program without previous color consulting experience, I established a solid foundation for color placement, conducting a consultation and starting a small business. I also gained a mentor who continues to support my progress well past the completion of the course, inclusive of the initial investment."
