Holiday Home Improvement Time

Have you been thinking of doing a little something to your home before all the relatives arrive-- something that expresses who you are in an artful way? Now is the time!

This client wanted her dining room to be a special, intimate space to entertain her family and friends. So we recommended this bronzed gold ceiling as the "crowning touch" to a beautiful room for intimate gatherings.

 These folks had us create a living room mural based on a 700 year old Chinese brush painting. Their home ended up being featured as "Home of the Week" in the Citizen Times!

Whether it's a specialty finish, a mural or a custom designed stencil embellishment, we can provide just the right thing to express who you are through your home.

A Unique Gift Idea

 If you are looking for a meaningful gift for a special little someone this holiday season, consider a custom mural for their room. 

 A mural in their room is a perfect way to make them feel special without giving in to the overwhelming "electronic pull". 
We custom design according to your and your child's dreams and visions. The only limit is imagination...

With our custom painted furniture designs and accessories (including growth charts, above), we can create a whole room design.

Ask about teen designs as well!

Call (828) 318.3519 or email scott@renovatewithcolor.com for details.

Happier than a bird with a french fry!

When it comes to creating for a client, our main goal is to enhance the space and promote a feeling or mood. Not only do we want them to be impressed by our professionalism and the quality of our work--

                                                      we also want them to LOVE it!

If they also happen to gush to their family, friends and neighbors about how Renovate With Color transformed their space... that's icing on the cake.

That is exactly the response we've gotten from our most recent residential client in Biltmore Lake.


The client contacted us to do a floral mural in her kitchen breakfast nook. She gave us this picture that she took at a hotel as a reference for the design.

We wanted our mural to have the delightful feel of an English garden in order to enliven the space with bright colors and whimsy.

She was so pleased with how it was coming along, that before we could finish, she started thinking of other projects we could do in the rest of her house-- making it a true Renovate with Color home transformation!



This custom, hand cut stencil, that we created for her fireplace mantel complimented her love of patterns.

Her den/ office space was cozy, but it just needed that special something to complete it's aesthetic.

We designed this tree silhouette mural for her and included a funky bird, as if it had just flown right off of her custom upholstered sofa.

The crowning jewel of the home's color renovation was this textured bronze/gold faux finish ceiling.

The client wanted to define the dining room as a separate space from the rest of the home's open floor plan. The result was a HUGE success.
In her own words Monica is "happier than a bird with a french fry!"

What's Happening Now...

Hello Everyone!

We are super excited about the new project we're currently working on and wanted to get you in the loop.  We're creating some signs for an awesome new business located at 84 West Walnut, called The Local Barber and Tap. This is a project that is close to Scott's heart as his father was a barber for over 30 years. This barber shop has an old school Americana meets modern vibe, and features a beer bar along with all the licensed barber amenities. We encourage you to stop by for a hot shave and a cold beer!

You can check out their Facebook page by clicking on their logo below:

Day Three

Today we started laying in the crosshatch pattern, which is a signature element in Martin's work. Here's a link to his website, by the way: www.martinwebart.com.

Somewhat labor-intensive (but in a zen-like way), this moved along nicely. We employed a "two-headed artist" method whereby Martin roughed in the pattern and I came behind to finish. A long, but productive day on the lift...
