Who We Are

A New Baby!

At the Larkin Painting Company, we are a community; we are a team; we are family.  Well, today we are very excited to announce the birth of a new baby to one of our team members.  Armend Hashani and his wife welcomed Onik, their second son, on May 27th.  Big brother is already quite the […]

Flower Bouquet

It is amazing what a flower bouquet and thoughtfulness can do.  One of our company’s strengths and source of great pride is that our painters are a very caring group of people.  Our team has a unique perspective on our customers’ daily lives as they share our clients’ spaces every day.  They are often present […]

The Special People in Our Lives

During the year, we all try to make sure we take time to recognize and appreciate the special people in our lives.  Sometimes we remember and sometimes we don’t.  After all, we are only human.  As cliche as it might seem, the holidays are the perfect time to pause and tell others how much we […]

Mixing it Up-Palette and People

Anybody who does professional painting as a business is in the business of mixing colors.  It takes many different kinds of colorants to achieve particular color.  Nature provides us splendorous beauty (especially during the New England autumn), but no such color as “Grandma’s Sweater” or “Alligator Alley”.  The color that you see on your walls […]

The Larkin Painting Experience

What is the Larkin Painting experience?  For sure it is a high-quality, excellent paint job, but it is more!  It is the listening, caring, and service that underpins our work-answering your questions, addressing your concerns, and fulfilling your unique vision of excellence.  The people of Larkin Painting embody the values of servant leadership.  We understand […]

Party Time-Larkin Painting Style

It’s hard to believe that summer is over-perhaps not officially, but vacations are winding down and there is a definite chill in the morning and evening air.  Time is passing so quickly.  We all know it’s a good thing to slow down and savor the moment, and we all know how hard just slowing down […]

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 […]

She has an impressive twenty years experience making sure busy offices run […]

Fourteen Years! Part Two

A few weeks ago, I began telling the story of The Larkin Painting Company’s early years.  We left off with me and Thiago sitting in my work truck unable to communicate with each other.  I paid him a day’s wages and told him as best as I could to come back the next day.  Despite […]

Fourteen Years! Part One

I am excited about this year because 2013 marks The Larkin Painting Company’s fourteenth year in business!  How quickly time has passed.  The journey from there to here has been amazing.  Looking back, I can hardly believe it.  People often ask how I got started, so now is a great time to share with you […]
