In the world of color, paint, and design, Clint Roy stands out as a beacon of creativity and customer-focused service. From his beginnings as a Professional Color Advisor (PCA) at Dunn-Edwards to becoming an In-Home Color Advisor, Clint’s journey is marked by a passion for understanding his customers’ original goals and design aesthetics.
Clint embarked on his journey at Dunn-Edwards with a goal of extending the company’s color services to in-home offerings. Leveraging his prior expertise in in-home consultations for window coverings, Clint grasped the importance of comprehending the lighting and ambiance of a space. The opportunity for an In-Home Color Advisor position emerged a few months after he became a PCA, enabling him to help carve out a program that was sure to be beneficial to customers seeking color advice.
Clint is now a successful In-Home Color Advisor for Dunn-Edwards in Orange County and has led several satisfied customers to their ideal color choices. Clint takes pride in his ability to listen to customers’ original design aesthetics and goals during the pre-consultation meeting. Through a process of elimination, Clint refines color choices, ensuring they align with the customer’s vision. He then can arrive at the customer’s home with a decent variety of color options without overwhelming the customer with too many choices.
Clint’s skill shines when dealing with customers with opposing views. Whether it’s a moody hue favored by one and a cheery tone preferred by the other, Clint navigates the delicate balance of compromise. He excels in suggesting colors that create harmony while allowing each room its unique personality.
One of Clint’s most notable success stories involves a client, Andrea P, who has an eccentric style inspired by Van Gogh. Clint color-matched tones from Van Gogh paintings owned by Andrea, creating a seamless flow throughout the house. Andrea's courage with color even led to a stunning pink bedroom, showcasing Clint’s ability to bring bold visions to life.

For Clint, creativity flows effortlessly. The diversity of aesthetics, clients, and locations keeps his job dynamic and inspiring. Each project brings a new challenge, pushing Clint to explore innovative solutions and exceed expectations.
Motivated by self-improvement and a competitive spirit, Clint constantly sets and surpasses goals. Feedback from customers fuels his drive, motivating him to enhance his skills continually. Clint’s dedication not only benefits his personal growth but also contributes to the success of Dunn-Edwards.
In-Home Color Advisors, like Clint, play a crucial role in expediting paint projects. By experiencing the living situation firsthand, they gain insights that photos can’t capture. This results in quicker color selections and faster project turnaround, ultimately boosting business for Dunn-Edwards.
When it comes to his own preferences, Clint’s favorite Dunn-Edwards color is Parisian Night (DEA184). He was able to get a Dunn-Edwards store office painted in the deep hue and even landed the color in his client’s home who has a love for Van Gogh!
In the world of color, paint, and design, Clint Roy stands as a testament to the transformative power of listening, creativity, and a customer-centric approach. His journey from a PCA to an In-Home Color Advisor is not just a professional evolution but a narrative of bringing dreams and design aesthetics to vibrant life.
