There’s nothing like video to show why a paint color or wallpaper works! Here are some of our little impromptu demos and lessons.  And there’s more great stuff from around the web on our Design Advice & Inspiration page.  We hope it’s helpful!

Do you love bold, graphic wallpaper as much as we do?  If so, look here for some design tips to keep in mind when you’re selecting something as groovy as this Chinese-inspired Thibaut wallpaper installation in Lisa’s office!

Need the perfect soft white?  We love Benjamin Moore’s BM OC-9, “Ballet White”!  This gallery hallway is part of a large home in the Dominion that was completely transformed with “Ballet White”.  We love the fresh, airy, open feel!

Got a home with travertine stone floors that was built during the “Tuscan” trend?  If you want to refresh your walls, the color must relate to your floors.  Here we look at some options!

Curious about “cerused wood”?  It’s a technique where the grain is made to look lighter, rather than darker, and it’s a super-cool finish.  Here we show you how we did it!

I’m in love with this blue and white kitchen!  Here we show which color we used to get this updated kitchen fabulousness.

Because of all the brown tones in this master bath (granite, travertine, tile), updating it without a full remodel was a challenge.  Painting the walls, doors and trim made the bath feel light and refreshing!

Here we look at some fantastic black-and-white tonal wallpaper by Thibaut, in a groovy pattern that really enlivens this large powder bath.  Actually, it’s the bath at our office, and we love it!

These golden-oak cabinets made this kitchen feel dark and dated.  A new lacquer finish in a fresh color not only lightened everything up, but also goes beautifully with the featured brick.

Interior designer Jinny Wenke of Ivy Oaks Designs talks about her color selections for this updated home, and especially the cabinet color!

We installed this bold, dark honeycomb wallcovering at John-William Interiors, and we love its dramatic richness!

This large living room had enough natural light to support a warm, medium gray.  It cozies up the room and looks fantastic against the white trim and adjoining kitchen cabinetry.

If you missed it on our Cabinet Painting Services page, here’s a quick little video showing you our process of how we paint cabinets!  Plus we go into more detail in this blog post, if you’d like a step-by-step.


This is what we live for… nothing has as much impact in a kitchen as painting the cabinets and making them look like new again.  You can see some great examples on our “Kitchen Painting – Before and After” page.  Our goal is for you to love your kitchen again!
