Caromal Colours® grew out of one woman's dream. Carol Kemery's vision started in 2002. She had an idea that anyone could achieve a beautiful decorative finish for their home, given the right materials and a little instruction. So, along with her daughter Katie, a freshman at Temple University in Philadelphia, PA, she submitted her business plan to an entrepreneur competition at Temple and took home first prize. Over the next few years, she worked tirelessly putting the components together. In 2007, Caromal Colours® was officially incorporated.
Carol’s passion is teaching homeowners that paint, color, design and the painted finish are part of a cozy fulfilling lifestyle. After 15 years of helping clients, she has made decorative finishes accessible to anyone and everyone through Caromal Colours®. Her forte is transforming the complicated and often overwhelming process of choosing color and painting finishes into an approachable, humorous, fun and achievable event.
"Simply, I strive to empower the creative side of people in a user-friendly, time-efficient, self-fulfilling, and practical way. I want to promote a comprehensive lifestyle based upon color, design, and the painted finish." - Carol Kemery
In 2005, Carol began Do It Yourself...Professionally, a series of decorative painting workshops for the homeowner. Word spread quickly as students brought family and friends to the studio to learn and have fun. Currently her workshops series is only offered at the Caromal Colours® studio in Pennsylvania. Coming soon, these workshops will be available throughout the country at the studios of trained, professional decorative painters.
Currently Caromal Colours® offers two collections, the Country Living Artisan's Collection and RECLAIM. More collections are currently in design. Of course none of this is possible without her team of artisan's as well as business advisors who keep our creative spirit bathed in reality.
Most people don't have a lot of time these days. Even more people don't understand how decorative painting can change their home so completely. Homeowners struggle on where to start. They are overwhelmed by so many choices. They are afraid they won't be able to complete the look they see and want for their home.
Caromal Colours is the answer to all of these challenges. You don't have to spend a lot money, ponder over thousands of choices, own tons of tools or worry that the decorative finishing materials won't work. Our materials are incredible, the instructions complete and if you love the look of the many faces of Country Living Magazine, you can have it in your home!
