The Highlands‘ St. Patricks Day Parade is this weekend, which means spring is upon us and Louisville is going to be hoppin’. The parade stretches from Baxter Avenue to Bardstown Road, one of the most popular areas for St. Paddy’s day fun.

The line runs Saturday at 3pm. It will begin at Broadway and Baxter and end at Mid City Mall. The theme this year is: 40 Shades of Green, so dress accordingly.

The Colors of Old San Juan

Though it is known for its cruise ship port, San Juan also has beautiful old world charm, and sights that excite the spirit.  Strolling along the streets of Old San Juan the beauty is apparent in the colorful homes lining the streets and around every corner. You never know what treasures you may find.

The bright paint choices of each residence, as well as the commercial painting made for a breathtaking trip. The following are the moments we captured.

Top 10 Best Christmas Light Displays

painters in Hikes Point

I remember as a kid it was a tradition to go out on Christmas Eve and look at Christmas lights. My mom would have a cup of coffee or hot cocoa, popular carols would be playing in the background, and my face was pressed against the car window. Nowadays, the enthusiastic decorations have become more breathtaking than ever, Clark Griswold would be proud… or jealous. Here are our picks at Painters of Louisville for the best Christmas light displays.

painters in Glenmary

The holiday season is upon us and it’s almost time to light up Louisville. The day after Thanksgiving marks one of the grandest events in our beautiful city. Light Up Louisville will include a Winter Wonderland Parade, a 5k walk/run, and Santa will light up the town to begin our 40 Nights of Lights.

Ending on New Year’s Eve, the 40 nights will present a light show between The Galt House and Fourth Street Live! You will also get to enjoy Fourth Street’s open ice skating rink. Louisville wants this to be the best holiday season yet, so be ready to paint the town with friends and family, and ring in the new year!

St. James Art Fair 2012


painters in Clarksville

The beauty and character of St. James Court alone is enough to call our city’s patrons to this historical neighborhood. However, St. James has been going the extra mile since October of 1957 with its annual art fair – one of the most popular in Louisville.

The funds from the event have helped to maintain many historical elements of St. James. They were voted best art show in the nation by Sunshine Artist in 2003, 2004, 2006, 2009, and 2010. The tradition continues this weekend, October 5th and 6th from 10-6, and October 7 from 10-5.

Ideas for Painting Your Ceiling

Choosing the right colors to paint your home can be a big task because you want to be happy with it for a long period of time. Whether you are painting a space for the first time or just trying to spice it up, don’t forget the ceiling. When we walk into a room our eyes don’t go to the ceiling – it’s usually a dull white and not necessarily in our decorative plan, but when done right the ceiling can bring the whole space together.

A general rule is to keep it on the lighter side, anything too dark may make the room look smaller, and it will take attention away from the other walls. However there are some cases, with the right crown molding and design that you can make this work. We have put together a few ceiling ideas to get you started.

Too Cool for School: Awesome School Bus Art

painters in Mount Washington

In honor of the new school year we have put together some of our favorite, most creative school bus art. These are not graffiti-ridden buses, nor are they as cliché as “Go Tigers” painted across a measly window – no, this is truly eye-catching, and worth while.
