A New Treasure

So far 2014 has been an exciting year!  We’ve had a new addition to the Larkin Painting family!  Emerson  (a.k.a. The King of Trimwork and Amazing Crew Leader) and his wife just welcomed  their healthy, baby boy into the world.  They are delighted and so in love with their new bundle.  We are lucky to […]

A Nest for a Son

The Larkin Painting Company has completed another project.  Our client is ecstatic and so are we!  We used neutral colors in this upstairs nest.  It’s  comfortable and relaxing.  Our clients’ son can rest, play, and study in his renewed space.  We are always very happy when our clients send us thank you notes and pictures.  […]

Simplifying and Slowing Down the Holidays

Is it me or do the days between November 1st and January 1st of the new year speed by at fifty times the speed of “normal” time?  After Thanksgiving it seems like things ramped up rather quickly.  I enjoy the holiday season and taking part of my family and friends’ beautiful Chanukah and Christmas celebrations.  […]

Days of Gratitude – Day Two

We are continuing with our days of gratitude this week.  As the holidays approach, it’s the perfect time to pause, take stock and be grateful.  I know all too well how easy it is to get caught up in the busyness and bustle of  running The Larkin Painting Company.  Maybe that is why it is […]

Days of Gratitude

The holiday season is fast approaching.  I love this time of year, but it is easy to get swept away in busyness and seasonal chaos.  I do my best to try to focus on the moment.  I find it helps to start focusing on gratitude.  We all try to be thankful daily, but as the days get busy, it’s […]

Fun with Glass or Color Consultations

Have you seen the glorious new Handcrafter Palette series made by YOLO Colorhouse?  I think my favorites are  Wool and Glass.  However, any of the colors in the Handcrafter Palette can make a home feel cozier, brighter and more inspired.   When faced with painting your home, the thousands of color choices can be overwhelming.  I […]

Hello October!

  It’s October, one of my favorite months of the year!  The days have yet to become hectic with holiday bustle and end-of-the-year busyness.  We usually haven’t begun to shovel snow.  The air is fresh and clear.  The leaves have begun to put on their glorious, autumnal show.   This is the time when we […]
