This deeper intention will attract clients, who value our skill and knowledge of, and dedication and service to biofilic design.

"This is a tremendously valuable training. Emily is a true genius when it comes to color. Watching her build an architectural color palette for clients in real time and in real houses feels like nothing short of magic. 

"As a trained educator, Emily knows exactly what methods to use to verbalize what comes to her intuitively, and to help foster a similar intuition in her students. Within two days of finishing the training, I was able to secure two jobs doing interior color consultations. I believe so deeply in the process Emily teaches and the Color in Space Methodology™ which she created, and I’m able to start providing this value to clients immediately. 

"Color is so powerful, and using it effectively can dramatically improve our lives. Emily is helping to spread peace and harmony through this training. I highly recommend it to color enthusiasts, interior designers, or anyone looking to make a meaningful career change."

- Claire Tomm, Madison WI 2019

"I thought I knew about color, and especially about how to use color in a home. Attending a Color in Space Consultant training opened my eyes to color. How color reacts to light, how colors react to each other, and how we react to color. It was transformative. 

"Emily Lauderback has developed a great curriculum to teach a gift she has honed over the years.  She shared with us how to bring homes - internally and externally - to LIFE!  I conducted my first consultation with a family member - my daughter - and the process went exactly as Emily predicted.  It was amazing!  My daughter came in with her idea of what she wanted, then I followed the CinS process, and what we came up with was better than either of us expected.  After painting two rooms, we just sit in wonder at how beautiful, balanced and ‘hygge’ it is! 

"Color transforms.  Color in Space Certified Consultant Training can transform your life as a consultant as part of your profession, or simply the lives of others that you care to share the gift with.  This much I know.  In this time of COVID-19, many will want to transform their ‘cocoon’ to bring comfort.  What better, and cost-effective way, than to paint the walls!?!

"The Color in Space Certified Consultant training was absolutely worth the time and money spent. Jump in! Get immersed in color like you never thought you would, or could. The way you see everything will be changed, forevermore."

- Deborah Blake, Spokane, WA 2020


“I was a college graduate with a BS in interior design when I first found out about Color in Space. Working with Emily was truly an eye-opening experience and I’ve learned so much about color and their relationships to architecture, furniture, hard surfaces, and more. 
"After the program, I was empowered and am able to move forward with clients in confidence, sharing the foolproof method that she’s developed. It’s an on-going “pay it forward” process, where her teachings help future consultants provide a fearless approach to color with their customers, who in turn become better with color themselves. Win win win! She’s intuitive, patient, and does a great job of coaching her consultants and clients. Without a doubt I am a better designer/color consultant after spending time with Emily and would recommend her program to anyone interested. She is passionate about her work, and her mission to help others understand how color affects us on so many levels is something that they don’t teach you in college. Color isn’t just about how it looks, and much more about how it feels. Her method takes everything you think you thought you knew about color and design and made it THAT much easier.”

 “What I enjoyed about the Color in Space Consultant™ program was how intuitive it felt to me - working with the colors and instinctively feeling what worked - the flow of the process and learning to trust and see how beautifully the palettes came out. These things align with how color makes me feel.” 

- Robyn McCall, Berkeley CA 2019

 “Flew in from Minneapolis and not really sure what to expect. Woke up on Saturday to real world training, no stone left unturned. Small, intimate group and we talked COLOR nonstop for 5 days! Emily was professional, fun, very thorough. Answered all of our questions and did a good job of explaining things.  She was intent on sharing everything she knows, giving us some great tips on making the process work in all different situations. Kept me very engaged. In addition to learning the color process, visiting clients homes & witnessing real consultations was invaluable (and touring the city at the same time was a plus!). Experienced the good and addressed challenges. The mission of Color in Space is to “create harmony that resonates with each individual space we serve, similar to the intention of feng shui” and as a designer, I feel called to practice a process that values this. I believe that the Color in Space approach to a beautiful palette is clear and easy to understand for the clients, which is why I have always wanted to learn how to do it. Looking forward to applying my color consultation training to an endless amount of design decisions. Left feeling confident that I can take others through this process and achieve great results, just like we did in training. I had such a great time and would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to learn more about color/color relationships, design, client relationships, small business practices, etc.”
