I was referred to Virginia Fair Studios by a respected interior designer.  I had water damage, nail holes, chipped paint and plaster on faux finished walls that were done 17 years ago.  Virginia and Jay made my walls look like new!  They did a fantastic job!  You literally cannot tell where the old stopped and the new began.  It is seamless and flawless. They are incredible artists and professionals.  I highly recommend Virginia Fair Studios!


Virginia, Jay and her team were referred to us by the general contractor for multiple projects including a fresco ceiling restoration in our basement ballroom. The original work was done in 1929, with one quarter of the original fresco being destroyed due to water damage. To us it was doubtful if the restored part would blend with the old, but the team painstakingly pulled it off, laying down on scaffolding and standing on ladders for hours. It was amazing to watch. In our breakfast nook off the kitchen they painted an octagonally recessed ceiling in a blue sky theme with lemons on a branch, it made our breakfast room come to life and is very unique. In addition a mural in the same area was painted and has become very personal to us as it was the location of our Wedding in Lake Como, Italy. Over the stove top exhaust shroud they embossed grapes and leaves to enhance the existing Italian vineyard theme. The finishing inside touches were faux walls and the exterior arch ways of the house were outlined to complete the beautiful restoration. Their commitment to understanding our vision and creating the interior period look for a late 1920's California Spanish Colonial was outstanding. Never in a hurry until we were comfortable with the concept, as well as color and tone, they consistently delivered an outstanding end product. Their consultative approach along with a top quality artisan team left us as very satisfied clients. We keep a wish list of future projects and will have them back again.


Thank YouVirginia Fair Studios for the beautiful murals in the Halls
of our property! We hired them to created three murals for our building
based on the style of three murals existing that had previously been
painted there and they managed to capture the essence and style of the previous artist. I was impressed with their speed and ability to
duplicate exactly what I wanted. They are thoughtful and easy to work with!


I have worked with Virginia on several Pasadena Showcase homes as well as projects in my own home. One thing I liked about her group is that they deliver what they promise.

Best wishes,

We worked with Virginia to restore some stylized paint work on our bathtub and concrete counter top.  She did an amazing job at matching the color and look of the original paint work.  She was very conscientious with the detail and feel of the pieces.  I would recommend her highly.

It is a wonderful occurrence when exceptional aesthetic sensibilities come hand in hand with a high level of professionalism.  Virginia and Jay bring this combo to the table time and time again.  They transform environments and enhance people's lives.

I have spoken with Virginia and see some of the projects she has done. What amazes me is that she has done it all and can still come up with new techniques and forms to create. Virginia and Jay work together as a real team who are completely devoted to their business.  I am impressed with their artistic ability and professionalism. They deserve the very best!

I recommended Virgina Fair Studios to a client of mine, who happened to own a restaurant in Studio City. The client wanted to replicate his menu logo on the outside wall of the restaurant, facing a busy street, to promote his restaurant. Jay duplicated the logo exactly, as well as making and implementing suggestions to give the best possible impact to passer-bys. The owner (my client) was thrilled with the results. Their execution was fast, with no loose ends, and met every expectation. There were no complaints, only a very happy client. I always recommend Virginia Fair Studios to anyone with painting/mural needs, because I know they are going to do outstanding work, and my clients will love the results.

Virginia and Jay are two of the most professional, creative people I have worked with in my 12 years as a practicing interior designer. They have created some wonderful walls for me for client projects, as well as a ceiling with clouds in a children's attic bedroom, a master bath with faux marble walls and tiny butterflies requested by the owner, and fireplace mantels that look like stone. They have refinished furnishings for several projects and even repaired existing murals for some of my clients. I have also hired them for some projects in my own home. Interior designers are very selective about the vendors they call on for client projects. I can honestly say that Virginia and Jay are two people that I rely on frequently for their creativity and sheer artistry!

I have worked on numerous projects with Virginia Fair Studios. From chinoiserie painted walls to murals etc., were just some that I added my brush to, in association with Virginia and Jay. I have fond memories of these times spent. They are very talented artists/artisans and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to others and have. I know they will do a professional job that their customers will love. They are truly a dynamic duo!

I have had the pleasure of working with Virginia and Jay on several occasions. They make my interior design plans come to life for my clients. They have done faux painting, furniture refinishing and special wall paint finishes for my projects. They are unfailingly creative and they make the whole experience an easy one for both my clients and myself. I was referred to them by another designer and I consider them an important resource.

Several years ago Virginia Fair Studios came to our house and designed a wall mural to perfectly compliment a new statue that my now ex-husband had purchased.  After water damage forced the removal of approximately half of the wall, I was very concerned that the mural could not be repaired.  Enter Virginia Fair Studios to the rescue!  Not only did Jay match the colors perfectly, but we were able to add elements to the original mural that better reflect my life today.  It's beautiful!  Working with these creative and competent professionals has been a joy.

Very professional... extremely talented and all around impressive! The quality of work never suffers between the variety of styles of artwork they produce. They stand behind their work and have great ethics.


I hired Virgina and Jay to paint my living room, and they were nothing but the best and the fairest. They were responsible about letting me know if the project was going to go over budget, which never happened. Simply a pleasure to work with. Very talented, too.

Jay& Virginia -Virginia Fair Studios, gave me a color consultation, design plan, and also did restoration work in my home. I thought I would have to replace the floor, but with the restoration they did it made it possible to maintain the look of the time period in which the original construction was done. I'm extremely pleased. It looks great.

Jay & Virginia helped me to restore the interior of a historical 1927 English Manor house in Beverly Hills from 2010-2012, I initially hired the dynamic duo to paint a mural in the powder bathroom and was so happy with their work that they came back at least a dozen times after that to help me with many projects that ranged from touching up gold-leaf frames to hand painting furniture to antiquing windows, frames & furniture. They can do it all--true artists at your service w wonderful personalities to boot! I love these two. You'll be very happy w their work so call them today for your creative needs, especially hand-painted endeavors.
