Choosing paint colors for your home can be a daunting task. The endless variety of samples and swatches to consider makes it possible to design any style of room you could want, but it also means that you’ll spend a lot of time deciding between a handful of almost identical shades until you find the perfect one. Here at Floor Coverings International West County, MO, we want to make that process simpler for you, so we got in touch with Greg Campbell, a local CertaPro painter.

Please tell us a little bit about yourself.
My name is Greg Campbell and I have been in the painting industry since 1999. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration and started my career with College Pro Painters as a franchisee. After I moved to St. Louis, I started working for CertaPro Painters. I have worked as a sales consultant for the St. Charles / South County and Wildwood franchise since 2013.
What advice do you have for homeowners looking to repaint or redecorate their homes?
My best advice would be to hire a professional that works with an interior designer or color consultant. Choosing the right color can make all the difference in the world when it comes to loving the finished product.
Are there any colors or trends that have been popular with local homeowners?
The biggest color trends that I am seeing right now are grays and “greiges” being used as the base color of a homes main interior and then using pops of color to accent throughout the home. I do caution my clients that trends come and go and that what is in style today may be out of style tomorrow. So, I encourage them to choose colors that they are comfortable with and that reflect their personal tastes and styles.
What is the benefit of using a professional painter over a DIY job?
The biggest benefit of using a professional painter is the speed in which it is done and the quality of the finish and how it looks at the end of the project. Your house can be put back into full service in matter of days on a full interior repaint. Also, the biggest reason to use CertaPro is that we provide certainty. We have something called the “certainty pledge” which means you only have to tell us your story once and you can trust that everyone involved in the project will know it.
Can you tell us about a project you enjoyed?
Some of my favorite projects have involved white washing brick hearths. It is such a simple project and can make a huge impact on the overall feel of a room. I have also enjoyed some recent cabinet and commercial projects.
