Insights & Accolades From Our Students...

“I learned so much about the fundamentals of interior design. I gained practical knowledge that I was able to use in my home. The training sessions were a lot of fun and interesting. I would definitely recommend Irene.”

Sharon Schmidt
Design Professional, Boise, ID

“I absolutely loved my ‘We Make Color Easy’ training, again worth every penny! It just solidifies all else that I had learned and gave me much better insight to everything! The colors of our lives are so phenomenal and so profound. It just changes everything and makes everything I do worth it to me!”

Pebbie Comer

“Loved, loved the class! Having a system to use to pick color is a dream. No more worrying that the client hates the color. Seeing the Color choosers contemplating which color to keep and which to discard is a fascinating process. I think the money spent was well worth the effort and now we have a doorway to enter so many more places to bring alive with COLOR!

I am very excited! We have already learned so much about our clients and ourselves by employing this color method. I love all of the handy stuff on the website, too.

You have a great team. It was great to meet Chris and Dan in person.”

“I was so pleased with the training and really enjoyed getting to know you and your family. The weekend was pivotal for me in terms of launching my business! By the way, I’ve decided to call it ‘Sweet Spot Color and Design,’ because I feel I can help people find their sweet spot at home with this wonderful Dewey system, yea!”

“I attended the ‘We Make Color Easy Training’ course the first week of April, 2008, taught by Dewey Color Instructor, Irene Woodworth in Boise, Idaho. I spoke to Irene a couple of times, before I signed up for her course. I realized after talking to Irene, that what were missing in my business endeavor were a Color Certificate and the availability of a system that works to help select colors for my clients. It was Irene’s knowledge and professional decorating experience that convinced me to take her class.

I really enjoyed the training with Irene and her team. She has a way of combining her professional training course with hospitality and genuine concern for the students. I would recommend Irene Woodworth to anyone who wants to learn about decorating and color selection. Thanks to Irene, my business has taken off!”

“I was very pleased with the recent We Make Color Easy Training Course taught by Irene Woodworth. She prepared us thoroughly on how to use the Color Consulting Tools. It was worth the investment I made for this training.


















Over all, I am very happy and satisfied that I took the class with Irene and her assistant, Chris Woodworth. I met two wonderful people who are very dedicated, caring and helpful. Their desire is for me to become the best Color Consultant I can be.”

Sylvia Aguirre, DCC
Retired Art Teacher, Weslaco, TX

“I am writing to praise and highly recommend your two-day Dewey Color Consultant Certification training. My partner, Jennifer Duchene, and I took your recent training in Palo Alto, California and found the process to be very informative and personally revealing.

Since the training we’ve already had the opportunity to do a color consultation for a wonderful local couple and, thanks to your training, have been able to negotiate a color palette not only based on their personal preferences, but also one that both the husband and wife are thrilled with! Using our handy Dewey Color Coordinator and the Color Assessment Tools we received in your class, we’ve been able to suggest a complementary (and beautiful!) color scheme for their entire home, including living room, dining room, family room, kitchen, master bedroom and two children’s rooms.

Thank you so much for your knowledge and support throughout the admittedly intense two days of training. You are a natural born teacher and a very generous person when it comes to sharing your wisdom and experience. By the time we parted ways at the end of day two it felt as if we had grown immensely in our confidence and knowledge of color and are now ready to use this newly discovered talent to help grow our redesign and staging business.

We now see the Color Consultation process as an icebreaker and a natural first step with a client before embarking on the redesign or staging work. The Color Assessment Tools help our clients to reveal themselves to us, so that we begin work together with a much better understanding of each other.

Thank you again, Irene. You and your assistant, Christopher, were wonderful teachers.”
