How To Create A Kitchen Color Scheme (online course)

See details in description box below


Before I tell you about this course, let's make sure you're a good fit.

You are right for How To Create A Kitchen Color Scheme if  you want to be able to coordinate your kitchen finishes like cabinets, countertops, backsplash & flooring (as well as wall & trim colors) with confidence and ease. 

You want to design your dream kitchen but are struggling to translate it into reality, and feel you are missing a few key skills to make it happen.

If you are...

  • A homeowner just starting your kitchen renovation and feeling completely overwhelmed by all the decisions you need to make and don't even know where to start
  • A homeowner who has already picked one or two kitchen finishes but are struggling to choose the final finishes that will tie everything together
  • Designing a kitchen with your spouse/significant other and would like to create a kitchen you both love (without ending up in divorce court!)
  • A designer who wants to sharpen their skills in specifying kitchen finishes and learn how to make sure your client's cabinets, countertops, backsplash and flooring coordinate beautifully


By the end of this course, you will have...



 Hi, I'm Kirsten!

screenshot-2024-02-06-at-2.31.23-pm.pngIn case we haven't met, I'm Kirsten Sharp and I started Julep Tile Company with my husband, Peter, in 2010.

I've coached hundreds of our clients on their kitchen designs, I've completed two of my own kitchen renovations, and I'm a Certified True Color expert.

I created this course because the #1 thing I see our clients struggle with is coordinating their kitchen color scheme, namely their cabinets, countertops, backsplash & flooring. 

Which makes sense because these decisions are usually fairly expensive and generally pretty permanent!

But the truth is that you don't have to be a world-class designer to create a beautiful kitchen color scheme.

You just need to know a few key design principles, and follow a simple design process. 

I'm so excited to share that with you in this course!
