Visualizing your home design project can be difficult, but after seeing the variety of decorative finish options displayed at H.J. Holtz & Son’s new Richmond Design Studio, you’ll only be limited by your imagination.

H.J. Holtz & Son’s decorative artists and wallpaper hangers revealed their artistic abilities at the open house unveiling of the Richmond Design Studio on Friday, March 27. The one-room house at 3113 Norfolk Street serves as an interactive portfolio of decorative finishes and wall coverings, where homeowners and designers can find inspiration for their projects and view examples up close.

“I want people to see that we have the ability to execute their vision,” Company President Rick Holtz said. He credits the company’s collaborations with local design partners for inspiring the work featured in the Studio.

“Our relationships with designers have been critical to the growth of our team’s talent because they continually push us to new creative heights,” Holtz said. “Not only have they brought us work and introduced us to customers, but they’ve pushed our team to stretch their abilities.”

In addition to showcasing the talents of the paperhangers and artists, the Richmond Design Studio also provides a space for interior designers and customers to map out their creative ideas. When professionals and homeowners bring their projects to H.J. Holtz & Son, they can view the full spectrum of decorative finishes available to bring their ideas to life.

To display the painters’ and paperhangers’ wide-ranging skills, each wall of the studio features a different decorative finish option that H.J. Holtz & Son can achieve:

  • Wallpaper: Our company has perfected the art of paperhanging since our founding in 1936, and our skilled paperhangers have experience working with all kinds of paper in the industry. Wallpaper brings dramatic personality to a room, and the wide variety of wall coverings available allows homeowners to find the right look for their project.
  • Decorative PlasterFrom translucent high-gloss polished plaster surfaces that resemble marble, to rustic plaster surfaces that mimic ancient worn stucco, decorative plaster offers an incredible range of finish options to achieve a distinctive look.
  • Painted MuralsHanging a picture can add interest to a wall, but a painted mural will transform a room into a living scene. Our decorative artists are incredibly versatile, and the murals that adorn the Studio are a small sampling of the distinct painting styles they are capable of recreating in your home.
  • Upholstered Wallcoverings: For bedrooms, libraries and media rooms, fabric wall coverings add warmth and a chic, cozy texture that paint and wallpaper cannot match. Upholstered wall coverings are also an excellent way to dampen sound and cover unsightly or imperfect walls.
  • Floor StainingWant to create a standout walkway? Our experienced professionals have mastered this difficult art and are capable of producing intricate designs on hardwood floors.
  • Furniture: H. J. Holtz & Son is a certified applicator of Fine Paints of Europe, which can provide the highest quality look possible to any surface in your home. Our shop painters can restore any piece of indoor or outdoor furniture to its original beauty, create a distressed finish, or give it a fresh new look.

H.J. Holtz & Son is incredibly proud of the hard work and heart our team put into the Richmond Design Studio, and we relished the opportunity to show off their beautiful results at the open house event. We would like to thank our decorative artists and paperhangers for their efforts, and we’re also grateful to our partners who stopped by on Friday to support this exciting new development with our company.

H.J. Holtz & Son is fortunate to collaborate with the design professionals who inspire us to reach new decorative heights, and we look forward to the Richmond Design Studio serving as the launching point for many creative projects to come.
