About Us

The Certified Color Expert (CCE) training program was created because there is a huge need in the design industry for a structured, process-oriented, color training that's focused on growing the color consultation industry by connecting Certified Color Experts to home owners in need. 

Audra's mission for the Certified Color Expert (CCE) program is to grow the color consulting industry, so that every home has a Certified Color Expert specify the right paint colors BEFORE the home owner ever hires a painter!  No more color mistakes in the home!

Prior to creating the Certified Color Expert program, Audra has been the leading online trainer for the home staging and redesign industry as the founder of the Home Staging Resource, the American Society of Home Stagers and Redesigners (ASHSR) and Staging Mentors

Audra is an Amazon best selling author and international speaker and trainer.  In 2015 and in 2013 she has won the Real Estate Staging Industry's prestigious "Innovator of the Year" award for her work in helping small design and staging businesses become successful.

Audra has a track record of success when it comes to creating training that helps small business succeed. Within the staging and design industry, every winner for the last few years of the "Best Home Stager and Redesigner of the Year" has been one of her graduates. Audra is most proud when people email her after taking her training to say how their business has become incredibly successful after following her training advice.

Audra Slinkey's Certified Color Expert Certification course is an indispensable add-on to her staging certification. As a stager, there is rarely a house that does not need some painting. Having a clear and substantiated understanding of color provides the confidence and added professionalism needed to deliver a service to a client that guarantees success. I highly recommend taking this course if you want to understand color more and be a color consultant and/or, add accreditation to your staging expertise.

Audra, you are brilliant! This color training was very helpful. The fact that you are very detail oriented is key in the success of a color expert. I'm excited to share this with my clients.
