What our clients say…


After several years of interviewing painting companies to do the exterior of our home, it was a pleasure to finally work with a company that truly does more than just paint! Jim was very knowledgeable about color combinations and enhancing the design elements of our style home. The work done was done efficiently with attention to detail and the supplies were organized to minimize disruption in our continued use of the garage. The finished product is truly beautiful! Thanks for a job well done!

When time did not permit me to paint my living and dining rooms, I turned to Jim Votypka and the Colors by Design team who were up to the challenge of meeting my perfectionist demands and meet those demands they did.  The team did an excellent job of wall repair, priming, painting, and trimming. They were especially respectful of the walnut baseboards and cupboards throughout the work area and left no splatter or paint runs. They completed the job in short order and were meticulous in their work and cleanup.

We couldn't be happier with the fine work done for us by Colors By Design.  We've had various interior projects completed - including whole room and woodwork repainting, wallpaper removal, shutter and crown molding filling and painting - and look forward to the spring when they can begin exterior projects. From providing clear estimates to final cleanup, everything was done in a timely and professional fashion. Beautiful!

My friends had always told me great things about Colors by Design so when we needed our master bedroom and bathroom painted I gave them a call. We could not be happier with the job they did for us!! Not only was the Colors by Design team clean and timely, they were very approachable and trustworthy. Their craftsmanship was seamless and meticulous!  They are the kind of people you trust to have in your home working when you’re not there.

Jim and his crew were fantastic. He listened to our suggestions; incorporating them if appropriate and advised against if they were not in the best interest of the finished product.  We were amazed how quickly the job was completed and how clean they left our property.  All of the crew were top notch professionals each going out of his way to be helpful and courteous. Painting a house the size of ours was a significant financial investment which Jim and his crew did not take for granted. Their workmanship and perfectionism shows in the attention to the many details present in the architect of a Victorian trimmed house.  It would be easy to get lost in knowing which color goes where.  Top notch!  We would not hesitate to recommend Colors by Design to anyone!

The Colors by Design team visited my condominium, assessed the painting projects in two large rooms, bathroom and kitchen. After receiving an estimate by Colors by Design, the team worked to complete a very professional job, within budget, and ahead of schedule! I could not have been more pleased with the excellent quality and beautiful results in my new home. My highest recommendation!!

Working with Colors by Design has been a great pleasure.  Brian and Jim are very professional, creative and extremely neat painters.  They come to a job prepared, on time and work complete days until your project is done.  I have used them both for interior and exterior painting and have had wonderful results.  They are very competitively priced when it comes to their competition.  I have recommended them to many of my friends and family who in turn were very pleased with their results and continue to use them for future projects.  I would highly encourage anyone in need of a painter to consider using Colors by Design, these gentlemen are easy to work with and offer great suggestions to projects you may have.

High Praise for Colors by Design!

We have used the Colors by Design team for several of our home improvement projects.  They have done exterior and interior painting for us and provided a wonderful service.  They are a hard working, timely and polite team.  Our older home received a transformation beyond our hopes—going from chipping paint and dingy color to sparkling and fresh.  Their follow through was also superb when they came by to check on the paint after it had dried and called us to see if we had any questions or concerns.  We would highly recommend Colors by Design!  They are true “painting professionals” in every sense!

"Colors by Design" is a professional painting company.  I want excellence in quality of workmanship and all that it entails for my interior and exterior jobs.  This is the company I recommend to everyone.

Timely, organized, efficient, and an extremely friendly and pleasant staff to work with. From estimate through cleanup, Colors by Design gets my vote for a "First Class Professional Organization." When the painting need arises I know who to call.
