Choosing vibrant accents is like living inside a Rothko painting.

The way you decorate your home speaks volumes about your personal style. Rich, colorful paints are the most effective way for decorative painters to turn a house into a beautiful home. We will take your dreams and ideas to the highest level. We use the finest hand finishes, which are created with style, elegance and uniqueness.
 
We offer decorative solutions that fit within your budget. We work with architects and interior designers (as well as homeowners), developing ideas and original concepts for the decoration of interiors, and for residential surface design. Every finish and decorative touch created by Primal Colors is unique and timeless.

Murals and Paintings

Murals are large paintings, and are most commonly created on expansive walls in private homes, as well as on public buildings. Paintings can also adorn your palace. David uses the combined techniques of faux finishes and trompe l'oeil in his canvas paintings. You'll be absolutely thrilled when the piece designed for your home or business enhances your new environment. The advantage to this approach is being able to decide exactly how you want your finished room to look. When you commission a hand-painted design, you can be sure it will be a one-of-a-kind piece that will be admired for generations to come.

When it comes to faux finishing, the sky really is the limit. Primal Colors takes pride in customizing your finish, to create a truly unique look. We give consideration to every design element when planning your space, and incorporate your overall concept into something spectacular. Don't forget to refinish your cabinets — it's less expensive than buying new ones, and it gives your kitchen a fresh look. From traditional to contemporary, elegant to eccentric, there is likely a custom finish that David Hettel can create for your project.
