    "The painting/repair team assigned to us was so professional, polite and efficient. The attention to small details made our house look really great. Tom, Bill and the team really listened to our concerns, whether small or large, and eliminated them all. It is so delightful to have had such a positive experience. We appreciate it very much."

  • Choosing The Best Color For You

    With a new year comes a new look. If you're interested in painting your rooms a different color, take a look at this helpful guide courtesy of Better Homes and Garden:

    Spread Color

    When you're spreading color around a room, think about proportion. If you're using three colors, try a 70/20/10 distribution. Use the lightest color for 70 percent of the room's decor, the second lightest for 20 percent, and the boldest 10 percent. For two colors, go 70/30.

    Get Inspired

    "Pick colors using objects as your guide--an old celadon teapot, the burnt sienna in a paisley fabric, a blade of grass. It's so much more lively than paint chips. I always, always, always start with a 'thing.'"
    --Sasha Emerson, Los Angeles designer

    Go Lighter

    After you find the perfect color for a wall on a paint card, buy paint that's one step lighter. Colors look darker on the wall, so the lighter shade will deliver more punch than you'd expect.
