“I really appreciate the fact that when I described how I wanted my rooms to look and feel, Mario really understood my personality and the atmosphere I desired to create. He and Chris worked with me in choosing colors I felt comfortable with and at the same time added an effect I probably would not have thought of on my own. I am very happy with the results and have received numerous compliments from friends and family!”

“I love Mario and Christian. Mario chooses colors I never would have and they look great. The rooms look fabulous. I always trust his professional judgment and I’m never sorry. Everyone that walks into the house comments and want to know who my wonderful decorator is. I have recommended them to many of my friends. Thank you Mario and Chris!”

“Our French Country home was in need of a painting makeover. After looking at multiple color charts, we were absolutely stymied by indecision, as to the correct color combinations that would suit and compliment our home.

         Mario came highly recommended to us so we called upon his talents to assist us in this process. It seemed within minutes that Mario was able to suggest colors for our stucco, wooden windows, trim and accent pieces such as shutters, wood doors and rod iron fencing.  He brilliantly harmonized all the color combinations. The colors Mario chose were intuitive and right-on. It was amazing to see our home transform from an out-dated, tired-looking color scheme to an extraordinary representation of French Country design. Additionally, our home passed the architectural committee’s approval with rave reviews, and we continually receive compliments on the beauty of our home.

         We would never have achieved the success of our home’s makeover without Mario’s assistance. It is without any reservation or hesitation that we enthusiastically and whole heartedly recommend Mario. He is genius at his work and is a pure pleasure to know and work with.”  – Angel and Emmanuel Delagrammaticas – Vista, Ca. – Del Mar, Ca.

“Having lived in about 20 homes, the easy part is buying them. The hard part is decorating them…especially the colors! Paint can make or break a project, and most people don’t have the right ‘eye’ for color. Thank goodness for Mario…who can create special colors just by looking at a room. He gave me the most beautiful background for my home, and made it look like it came right out of a design magazine!”  – Pat Riddle  Director, Brand and Market Positioning  Boeing Integrated Defense Systems – Washington, DC 

From Ranch to Hollywood Glam!

Mario & Christian helped transform three of my homes into something I only dreamed of. They first turned our boring 50’s ranch house into a retro-cool party pad. Their color choices of aqua-blue and yellow were the perfect counterpoint to the home’s slick stainless steel accents and sandblasted wood ceiling. Brought to life with these fun new colors, our home was featured in “Atomic Ranch” magazine! Next, I purchased a home in Silverlake, California. With a limestone green Venetian plaster finish, our dining room feels like it should be in Italy. Everybody who walks in immediately says ‘ooo…’ while rubbing their hands over our beautiful walls. Thanks for the tip guys! Later I then moved to the Hollywood hills, about a mile underneath the famous ‘Hollywood’ sign. For our classic Mediterranean home, Mario & Christian helped us choose a scrumptious palette of ochre, butterscotch, cream and honey. The results were simply delicious!” Thank you again!

“I’m a big fan of Lord of the Rings, so………..

Hobbit House, anyone? For those who don’t naturally live in the Shire, coming up with “perfect” Middle-Earth colours and motifs can be a huge problem, Enter (stage right) Mario and Christian, who tailored a virtual harvest of Shire greens, golds, and yellows, pairing resonant, natural earth colours with an entry-way and rounded curved opening fireplace of slate in muted hues that echoed the walls. As a counterweight, the foyer and living room walls are beautifully set off by poured-cocoa-and-cream Venetian Plaster, and the kitchen ceiling is ‘lit’ by a blue ‘sky’. A little bit of Hobbiton, come to life in Signal Hill.” –  Jan Nelson, Signal Hill, CA

“We hired them to remodel our 1960’s bathroom. From the first consultation to the final walk through, they were professional, trustworthy, courteous, efficient and produced an unbelievable product. We were so pleased with their service that if we do any other remodel in our home, we’ll look solely to them for the job. We were recommended by a friend to and will continue to recommend them to anyone we meet.” – Angela Trinh, Los Angeles

“This staff is not happy until the client is satisfied, happy, and pleased. Their service is unique. They are extremely knowledgeable and their taste and skills are unsurpassed. The staff is incredibly professional and they aim to please. They are truly amazing and i highly recommend them! You will be glad you called them!!” – Ronald San Agustin, Long Beach

“We have done business with Mario for over 4 years. We appreciate his honest work ethics and love their design work.” – Natalie Ha, Rosemead

“I Thought my wife was crazy for Wanting to Paint our new home, But when I saw the job that Mario did painting.  I’d Have to agree that my home has never looked better. I strongly recommend this company to my friends and family! Thanks” – Jon Goldfisher, Studio City

“I remember the first day when I moved into my condominium, the walls were off white, the cottage ceiling was white and carpet…Red! I splattered some different color paint samples on the wall thinking one would jump out and bring some life to my home. Unfortunately, all I got was a headache from trying to make up my mind. A friend suggested that I call Mario. As soon as I described my hopeless dilemma, he immediately had some suggestions! I told him that I wanted something to take notice away from the ceiling, he knew exactly what colors I could use to blend from walls to ceiling, incorporating a color scheme that toned down the RED carpet! He advised me to steer away from the traditional white ceiling. It resulted in distracting attention away from the cottage cheese above and flows from the open kitchen into the dining room and throughout the living room!

I also wanted some style in the bedroom. His creativity was multifaceted not only in color, but in mixing tone, texture and pattern, creating a clever design. Everyone comments how they love the stripes of color and the two-tone wash and how well each color tone compliments the red carpet as well! I couldn”t wait to call him 6 months later to tell him that Oprah had a designer on her show featuring the same style and design he has suggested…. Only I had it first!! Thank you guys for all your suggestions, it created a feeling of style and comfort. I love coming home!!”  – Aaron Slovin Long Beach, CA

“I’m an architect and deal with colors all the time so I thought this would be easy for me to select the colors for my own home. Working with a blank canvas is a lot different than working with a home that already has carpets, fabrics, tile and so on and making everything look great.

I’ve use’ d Mario & Chris for both of my 2 homes as well as my apartment buildings with fantastic results! I love the way they not only use color but also textures, and how everything works and coordinates well.

 I Love Hawaii and so for my home in Las Vegas, they went with a south sea theme. They used Venetian plaster in 2 colors, one blue/green which reminds me of the waters around the islands and a salmon/red which contrast beautifully with all the other colors, which adds another layer of texture and looks superb! The colors are vivid and soothing. 

They also chose the exterior color for my apartment building and what a difference. The color compliments my roof perfectly!  Never noticed the roof before. Funny thing, an apartment building down the block copied my building colors after the painting was done on my building!

Thanks again Mario & Chris” – James Fortunes, AIA Signal Hill, CA – Las Vegas, NV
