Stress-free Paint Shopping with the Clare Paint System with Nicole Gibbons

Are you going through the paint wheel of literally thousands of colors, trying to get to the right one you’re looking for? Maybe your painter needs this information by tomorrow, and you don’t want to make a mistake that could cost you thousands of dollars? Choosing a paint color can be so overwhelming and crowdsourcing a color on Facebook isn’t always the best strategy. That’s why today I’m talking with the amazing Nicole Gibbons, the founder of Clare Paints, who is on a mission to make paint shopping easy and inspiring (so that you can create a home you love)!

In addition to being the founder of Clare, Nicole is an interior designer who saw that no paint brands were offering an easy or convenient way to shop for paint – so she decided to fix that! A true expert in her field, her design know-how has been featured by top media outlets like HGTV, The Oprah Winfrey Network, Good Morning America, Elle Decor and more. Nicole is passionate about helping people create beautiful spaces they love. And with Clare, she’s continuing to do just that…one perfect paint color at a time!

You are not going to want to miss this conversation, because what Nicole has created is ingenious! If you’re struggling with what colors to use in your house, this is the answer you’ve been looking for, because this can be a challenge even for experienced designers as well. It is such an honor to not only speak with an incredible female entrepreneur like Nicole here, but to also bring this episode to you on International Women’s Day!
