Artist and color specialist Julie King has been making faux finishes look fabulous for 15 years. With annual training to stay on top of the latest trends and techniques, and an eye for identifying the perfect combination to enhance every space, King and her staff bring joy to dull surfaces—whether your desire is to make a plain pine door shine like mahogany or showcase a family crest in the den. But it’s not just a feast for the eyes—Samarra uses environmentally friendly paints that can be enhanced with essential oils, meaning your space will smell as fresh as it looks.
