Here's What They're Saying:

"Hiring you was a smart thing. You did a wonderful job on our home and we get compliments all the time that it has never looked better. Not only is the mold gone but you fixed the nail pops, caulked everything and saved our chimney cedar for a few more years. Zei Decorating's slogan still presents the truth, "it's the little things we do that make us different."

"With much appreciation,

"I turned the computer back on and am sitting in the newly painted office.  :)

"Heaven, yes! Everything was always so tidy when I came home that I would not have known you were here if I didn't go upstairs to look at the rooms. You two are really neat worker bees! Now that you are done, I am impressed with the way everything was put back. It doesn't look like it was all torn apart this week at all. Thanks so much."



Jim Zei says:
"When choosing colors to paint your house it can be helpful to borrow from nature. The landscape around your house is blooming with color ideas. Trees may suggest an earthy palette of greens and browns. A lake front setting might suggest vivid blues, turquoises, and other cool colors. Even the garden in your front yard can inspire exciting color combinations."
