As the marketing director for a new home developer and builder, I chose to use Vanessa to do the faux finishing on our model home's walls. Many of our homes are priced above $600K and it was imperative that her work be commensurate with the level of execution we expect. In one of our models, Vanessa created faux brick walls. We laugh when we see customers actually reach out to touch them because they aren't sure if it is real brick or not! She operates quickly, professionally and does what she says she's going to do. In our industry, this is critical! I highly recommend her work, and invite you to tour our models to review her work to satisfy your curiosity. Visit Alderwood in Sandy Springs or Woodbridge in Smyrna: www.tpghomes.net for directions.

Thank You! I enjoyed working with your staff. What a wonderful compliment it is to have people fooled by my artwork!
Decorative Painting and Murals did a beautiful job on our baby girl's nursery. I originally called Vanessa to have some additional painting done to a wall that had been previously painted and we were not 100% happy with the results. Vanessa had some great ideas to fill in the gaps, as well as, repair the work that had already been done. She made the wall really stand out by adding additional detail to the fairies dresses, their eyes their hair and she used colors that really made the wall "pop". In addition she brought more artwork into the other walls and really pulled the room together. Clouds were added to the ceiling and they truly look realistic, as if they are actually moving across the ceiling. Also, Vanessa had a great idea of stenciling a fairy phrase we wanted and adding a small fairy at the end to look as if she were writing the phrase. The additional ideas and details she added to room, as well as, the repair work to the previous fairy wall were absolutely amazing. We now have a room that we love to be in and our little girl will enjoy once she arrives! Vanessa was very thorough in spending time with us to see what we wanted; she listened to us and shared her ideas. Immediately she got back with us over email to describe what we had discussed and attached a contract to specifically state what we agreed upon. Vanessa is very professional in handling her business, very talented in what she creates and as is one of the most pleasant people you will meet!

This nursery was very fun to create! I continue to receive complements on this room from my website.
This service provider was very professional, very detailed and very talented. Her feaux finishing work is absolutely beautiful! She provided an estimate and a contract that outlined the service she would provide. She was on time and delivered what she committed to do. I would recommend her to anyone.

When I decided to have a mural put on my little girls ceiling and walls, I wanted to make sure that it was going to be something that she would'nt want to change in a few years. It had to be a painting that she would enjoy in her room now at 2 and also at 14. Vanessa came to my home and looked over the space and listened carefully at things that I thought Grace would like and within days Vanessa came back to me with a sketch of Grace's new bedroom. It was a gorgeous 3D hummingbird vine coming down from the light fixture of her ceiling with birds flying in the sky. It was amazing how closely Vanessa listened, because it was everthing and more than we could ever expect. Vanessa painted Grace's bedroom that week and when she was finished it was truley an original painted piece of artwork from a extremely talented artist. No stenciling was used on her walls. The branches all had highlights and shadows, the birds feathers had detailed strokes of different color shades of blues on their feathers. It was an amazing job that she did for us, more than we ever expected. Everytime people come over to see us, they always pause for a minute to take in all of the detailing in Grace's bedroom. Most importantly, Grace loves her room and when she lays down for bed at night enjoys looking up at the sky with birds flying around. Since Vanessa did such a good job for Grace, we commissioned her to do faux finishes in our master bathroom, dining room ceiling, and game room kitchen.

I am glad I could help you bring your new home together with all of the artwork and finishes we created! You now have a fabulous home for entertaining!
I was amazed at the quality and creativity of the mural that Vanessa did for our son's bedroom. She took the time to create several sketches and reviewed them with us before creating one of the most beautiful train murals I have ever seen. She is very professional and reasonably priced. Once you see the work that she is capable of you will want her to paint every inch of your house.
