"Since 2000, Stephen has created numerous treatments in our San Francisco and Lake Tahoe homes. When we require unusual and unique woodgrains, he is the artist we call upon. His eye and hand for detail is remarkable; his abilities to listen and reproduce design concepts are masterful. Easy to work with, reliable and professional; Stephen is a valuable addition to our design team."

Jody Lindell and Ed Matthews, San Francisco & Lake Tahoe, CA

"Stephen used his imported Italian plasters throughout our house; each one was stunningly beautiful and elegant, with glassy soft finishes, except for the stairway walls circling down to our wine cellar, which was more like a pumice stone finish with glints of gold. Stephen was exceptionally neat and clean in his work, and always showed great care to our home and our dogs. His craftsmanship was impeccable and he goes above and beyond to do whatever he can to ensure his clients are happy... all while staying on budget. We highly recommend his work."

"When I purchased my home and decided to remodel, I knew the wall treatments were going to be critical to the “informal elegance” I was trying to achieve in my country home. Stephen worked his magic with some Italian plasters that had a depth of color that was astonishing, and the texture of smooth glass that was truly unique. He also created a warm paint treatment for my living room, perfectly complementing the alder wood trim and walnut flooring, and adding to the richness of the room. When my designer selected textured wallpaper for my master bedroom, the price of the paper was more than I wanted to spend. So Stephen worked with the wallpaper sample and created a treatment that cost half as much and is equally (if not more) beautiful than the wallpaper. Stephen is a joy to work with, was respectful of my home and pets, and is a true professional. His work is impeccable and I recommend him highly."

"For fourteen years, I have been working with a very creative decorative painter, Stephen Klum. He is especially talented in creating unusual three dimensional wall surfaces. I have used him for wall surfaces, faux bois, and crackle finishes as well as straight painting. My clients have loved his work and having him around their home. One project turned into a ten month job. I encourage you to call him to set up an appointment to see his work."
