The vision for CAN Decorative Painting & Design Inc. started in Toronto, where creative owners Davide Aguiar and Michelle California-Aguiar met. There they trained, worked and taught their craft for many years at one of Canada's premiere decorative painting studios; Ritins Studio. While in Canada the couple gained extensive knowledge of the industry, working on major residential and commercial projects including hotels, casinos, restaurants etc. Please see client list for more information.

Recently relocating to Chapel Hill, NC their goal is to combine the styles, techniques and technologies learned from experiences around the world into a new approach to decorative painting and design.

We at CAN consider ourselves designers of decorative finishes. Each finish created to meet the design needs.

In this web site you will see a small sample of what CAN has to offer. They hope that you will find a technique that interests you, a style that excites you, or an idea that helps spark your imagination. Everything here can be applied to most wall, ceiling and furniture surfaces, and all finishes are customized to suit their clients' needs.

Print is not the best way to experience the CAN style. They would love to meet with you personally, show you their work, and discuss the endless possibilities that can give you the space you have always imagined and a look that is entirely your own.
