Ros Wyatt of Green Plum is a delight to work with.
She helped us pick out colors that not only worked extremely well together, but definitely gave the house an individual identity. She was patient and attentive to our needs, really listening to the ideas and concerns we might've had and guiding us to a fantastic conclusion.
Her lines of communication were completely open, which I loved. It was never hard to get a hold of her, and she was realistic about timing and scheduling.
Her workers were fast and efficient, and very professional. They spent a lot of time of prep, which was reassuring, and were very open to coming back to the house months later to fix any tiny imperfections we might've found.
All in all, a great experience. The exterior of our house looks amazing, and I can't wait to use Green Plum for our interiors as well.

After collecting several bids from painters, I met Ros Wyatt of GreenPlum Design and was immediately impressed by her attention to detail and lovely personality. I was thrilled to get her very competitive bid, enjoyed working with her from start to finish, and love the final result. She has a keen eye and helped me in color selections by painting on several test patches before the project started. I was very concerned about the old lead paint as I have two young children. Her crew was meticulous and put me at ease throughout the entire job. They worked tirelessly and were very accommodating when it came to my little kids. My house looks fresh and cheery with its new look. I look forward to working with Ros in the future!

I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Ros and the gorgeous color she brought to our house. We are first time home owners and bought, as most people do these days it seems, a very white house. White is great but because of the layout of our house made it feel a bit sterile. The floor plan is open with some built-ins but with everything white it felt blank and un-cozy.
When Ros came over to help us, she listened carefully to what we were thinking, asked a lot of questions, and took a bunch of photos. We had some definite ideas but were also open to ideas.
The cool thing about Ros is that she has vision but not A vision. She has an incredible sense of color and space and used it to bring our own ideas into beautiful balance. I completely second the other reviewers comments about her process, how she helps you to find what you are looking for--even sometimes when you didn't know what you were looking for!!
Even though we changed our minds several times in between, the colors she suggested from our very first description were what we ultimately went with--and we could not be happier. The color in each room of the open area punctuates the transition from room to room without making any room feel completely cut off, resulting in coziness and openness together. Plus there are a few areas that just 'pop' with dashes of bold color. LOVE LOVE LOVE!! Thanks Ros and Green Plum Design!

My husband and I own a hotel on the Mendocino Coast. When we purchased the cottages they had been slated for demolition, that bad! I was very fortunate to meet Ros, Green Plum Design, and our collaboration was immediate. It was a pleasure to develop solutions with her. She is a very talented designer, and had quick insight to complementary options for our daunting restoration project and budget. Her knowledge is broad, and her taste perfectly suited our vision. Ros has continued over the years to provide design services to our business. Several of her original creations have been copied by many of our guests!!

Although I liked the colors I had chosen for each separate room in our house, they each seemed very distinct and individual and the colors didn't flow together in any cohesive way. We hired Green Plum design to design a new palette that would give each room a little bit of an identity, but work together pleasantly as a whole. I was thrilled with the colors that Ros chose. She listened carefully, thought about the problem and presented us with a palette that works beautifully in our home. While she was thinking about it she sent a few emails a long the lines of "what do you think about this?" and "imagine this for your bedroom." I felt that the resulting color scheme was gently and patiently guided by her, but truly came from our family's wants and needs. Highly recommended!

Five stars all the way for Green Plum Design for top notch quality, service, design and exceptional support and follow-up through every detailed step of getting the interior and exterior of our home fully painted and prepared for sale. Ros is incredibly talented and responsive and her crew a highly skilled and a wonderful group of hard working, friendly and pleasant craftsmen to work with. Beautiful work = complete satisfaction.
