I have hired many painters in the past but always had issues with quality, scheduling, communication and attitude. Until I found Muffy and David Barden. They have assembled a team that does an impeccable job. As a designer I also value their combined input on what materials will give the best result on a project not to mention they have and impeccable taste. Muffy doesn't just take orders but makes great suggestions outside of just painting, e.g. taking down a wall. She thinks of the big picture and improving value versus just slapping paint on a wall. Amazing service, professionalism, and outstanding results is pretty hard to come by these days but Muffy and her crew deliver all that and so much more! The client had requested we get several estimates before deciding on a painter. From the beginning, Muffy stood out as attentive, passionate and reliable. Some estimates were less, some were more but we felt like we could trust Muffy to help the client through the process and get the job done on time with short notice and a tight schedule. We shared our budget with her and she offered various estimates with options to find some savings where possible while still focusing on quality and long term value. Muffy and her team are worthy of a 5 Star rating. From the initial appointment, to the bid process, to the actual work being completed, in such a timely fashion that my clients and I are delighted. Barden’s is excellent with communication with the designer and the home owner. Some contractors attempt to bypass the designer and simply communicate with the homeowner. Barden’s does both so the job is done right the first time. Muffy or David would stop by to check progress, determine if there were any glitches (none), and bringing any paint or supplies during the day so we did not suffer any work stoppage. The crew started on time on day 1 with no delays. Muffy kept in contact via phone/email throughout the days with questions and progress updates. She was very detail oriented in her questions to make sure the crew was very clear and prepared. The crew was respectful and cleaned up after themselves each day. I cannot say enough good things about this company and am equally excited to use them on my next project.

Tommy Barden & his team painted the exterior of our home April 2015....Extra attention was paid to every detail of the project, from power washing to prep to paint application. Special attention given to protect landscaping and porch/deck surfaces was much appreciated. Prompt arrival and no delays in finishing project on time. No punch list....they did a superb job. Looking forward to their return this summer for an interior project.

We hired Barden's Decorating to paint the interior of our 1920s house and they did a FANTASTIC job! Their attention to detail matched my own, which is rare! Muffy was so helpful in writing the estimate and working through the details of the contract. She was always available to answer my many questions and she even came over to help me sort out a design problem, which was completely unrelated to painting! The job itself was pretty big and Tommy, Neil and their crew did an amazing job! The trim in the home had NEVER been painted so it was a huge undertaking to degloss, sand, caulk and prime all of the baseboards, crown moulding, doors, windows and built ins. In addition, they also painted all of the walls and stained some new baseboards to match the existing wainscotting in the dining room. They arrived on time, worked a full day and were always friendly and professional! They finished the job within the timeframe they estimated and were on budget. They also got along well with our other contractors. The house looks amazing now and I will definitely be hiring them in the future to install wallpaper and refresh our carriage house!

Comment from Barden's Decorating, Inc.:
Sytira, Wow! Thank you, thank you, thank you! You have amazing taste and vision for your old now new home! Wishing you and your family many happy years in your new place. I can't wait to see the Lindsay Cowles wallpaper installed. Simply Grateful for the opportunity given to us :) Muffy Barden
Barden's Decorating, Inc. was a great recommendation! They are professional, very trusting, and hard working. The wallpaper in our downstairs bathroom looks amazing and I am so happy with the outcome. Make sure to schedule ASAP as their schedule can fill up quickly!

They are wallpaper in experts. The wallpaper in my current home is 10 years old and there are still no seams showing. They just put up wallpaper again in my new home and again did a fantastic job. I would highly recommend them.

Barden's Decorating have an immense and trusted knowledge of the painting and wallcovering business. They offer professional estimates by email and always seem to meet deadlines. They do a very high end, professional job but their prices are reasonable. The clients comfortable with their painters in their homes which makes my jobs easier on my clients.

We have had most of the interior of our house repainted by Barden's. We are very pleased with their work. Their painters are on time, friendly, competent, and master painters. Our rooms look beautiful! They cover all furniture so there are no spatters or accidental spills on anything. We are so pleased. Frankly, we can't imagine calling any other company to paint for us!

I have hired many painting companies over the years to do various work both in and outside of my home. Barden has been consistent in both the quality of work they do. They show up every time on time... that alone is rare. They do what they say, never complain about the mess other trades have made when asked to come back and touch up. Always nice guys who really are professional at their job. As I hate to paint, I appreciate someone who loves to paint.

I recently undertook my first wallpaper project with a client and recommended Barden's Decorating, Inc. Working with Barden's was a wonderful experience from start to finish. I greatly appreciated Barden's professionalism and responsiveness as we prepared for the project. During the process of wallpaper removal and installation, my client was grateful for their timeliness and the care given to her home. Upon completion, we were both thrilled with the attention to detail and their expertise as evidenced by the stunning new wallpaper in the two story entryway and powder room, as well as the condition of the walls where wallpaper was removed and the walls painted. I look forward to working with Barden's Decorating, Inc. again.

I have worked with Tommy and Muffy on numerous painting and wallpapering projects for my clients over the past several years. They are the most professional (and friendly!) painting company I have ever worked with and Tommy's wallpapering jobs are exquisite! They always treat me and my clients with respect and leave no trace behind them after a job is finished. If you hire Barden's Decorating, I promise you will be in good hands!

Muffy and Tommy Barden are a great team to work with for my client's painting jobs. They arrive promptly and just take care of all the aspects involved in the project- seeing that all the little things that are needed to complete a successful job are done for the client. As an interior designer, I have to know that the people I work with for my clients are top notch. Barden's Decorating is that company for me- I never worry about their work and my clients are always satisfied.
