Victorian Preservation

Local Color’s work was an essential element in reversing the trend of the wholesale destruction of S.F.ʼs unique legacy of Victorian architecture.

Decades of Beautification

Local Color has given thousands of homes in the Bay Area well-balanced and dynamic color surfacing, including three of the seven Painted Ladies on Postcard Row.

Pioneered Restoration Techniques

During the early days, Local Color was best known for its revolutionary restoration methods that brought structural integrity to the wonderful new palettes.

Our Unique History

Local Color is known as one of the “Mothers of the Colorist Movement.” Since we opened in 1974, we’ve won more awards than any other S.F. painting company.
