“Last fall we moved from a town home in Lincoln Park to a single family in Edgewater.  We hired Pam and her crew to paint and detail every inch of our town home as we were preparing it for sale. They did a wonderful job at a very fair price.  Based on that experience, we hired them again for a couple of painting projects at our new home. Again, excellent work, fair price and completed ahead of schedule. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend 4 Seasons to anyone I knew looking for paint work. I have also seen some of Pam’s landscaping work and it is amazing.” — Denny M., Chicago, IL (courtesy of Yelp)

First of all, THANK YOU to the many clients who have taken time out of their day to write us a review on Yelp. We truly appreciate you and your time!

Painting: Zinnia Stencils in Chicago

I painted these beautiful zinnia stencils for a client’s home in Chicago.  They are a great way to add a splash of color to a room, or any space (in this case, a hallway). I love how they all compliment the color of the walls so well, adding such variety and texture while still maintaining the classic vintage feel of a traditional Chicago home. They also draw your eye upward to the crown molding, columns and beautiful light fixture. Take a look at the pictures below and let me know what you think!

Painting: My Home

This past winter, I spent some of my down time updating and painting my own home with new colors and stenciling. I added a light yellow accent wall in my kitchen that really brightened up the space. I also repainted my dining room but kept the walls uniform so that my plants could be the focus that adds texture and color to the room. At the bottom of my stairs, I stenciled a few dandelions (to match the pattern of the chair covers I DIY-ed last year). Take a look at the pictures below and let me know what you think!

Painting: Fireplace Stencil & Winter Container

We painted this fireplace stencil for a client this past winter to add a splash of color and interest to her already beautiful room. It’s amazing what a little color and effort can do to enhance a room or make a feature, such as a fireplace, stand out. Take a look at the before and after pictures of this job – the pictures speak for themselves!

We also planted a small winter container for this client’s porch. It is a simple but beautiful way to bring a festive look to your home in the cold months.

Using Paint to Transform Your Space

As the weather begins to cool, we’re starting to put away our gardening tools and bring out our paintbrushes.  Here’s a look at some of the projects we did for clients last fall and winter.  We are proud these rooms and the way the colors really transform each of these spaces.  Leave a comment to let us know what you think!

These two accent walls show how just a little color can add richness and depth to the entire room.

Fireplace Accent & Condo Painting in Chicago

Happy New Year!  We ended 2012 with a fun painting project using Behr paint.  Check out the pictures below and let us know what you think!

We love how the fireplace is now the focal point of the living room and brings a pop of color (Behr’s Sequoia) that complements her existing furniture well.  It’s amazing how just a small splash of color can make such a difference in updating a room’s design.

Behr’s Natural Almond was used for the living room walls and Gentle Rain brought a tranquil, yet neutral, feel to the bedroom, perfect for relaxing.

We are still offering free color consultations with every signed painting contract.  Give us a call to schedule your free estimate and update your home for the new year!  773-517-1198

Condominium Painting in Chicago

Using Benjamin Moore paints, we brought color to three rooms in this condominium painting job.  In the kitchen, we used Benjamin Moore’s Saybrook Sage to complement the red oak cabinetry and dark granite countertops.  One of our BM favorites, Carrington Beige, was used as a neutral tone in the hallway and office.  BM’s Smoke Gray and Whitewater were used in the dining room, separated by a white chair rail and BM-159, a deep blue color, was used to correspond with the retro tile in his bathroom.

A little fresh paint goes a long way to update your home on a budget. We can help you choose just the right color to compliment any combination of existing textures and colors in a room to give you a fresh, new feeling in your home without spending a lot of money. We offer free color consultations with every signed painting contract.
