An uncanny eye for color, a sure hand, and the right equipment for the job. That’s what Raymond Sponsler brought to the industry when he founded Living Colors in 1973, and continues to do so today. Clients often remark on his great eye for custom color matching. Always looking to provide maximum value to clients, Raymond stays abreast of the most current techniques and styles. In addition, he uses only the best equipment and supplies available on the market.

In 1985, Raymond’s wife Paula joined Living Colors to manage the office. As a team, they oversee quality control and continue to preserve long-term relationships with an extensive roster of repeat clients. Today, Living Colors employs over 50 people at times and continues to grow upon a solid foundation of client referrals.

Over the years, the Living Colors brand of premier service has earned the trust of well known interior designers, contractors and nationally recognized architects. Living Color’s work has been published numerous times in Architectural Digest including a job that earned a prestigious “House of the Month” cover story and another which was featured in the August 2004 issue.
