Rael is a paint colour genius. She has an incredible way of assessing the many, many options available and landing on the perfect colour for projects. We hired Rael to choose our exterior colour for a repaint on our 30-year old traditional home. In our consultation together, she was able to find exactly what I was not able to find on my own, and provide reasons for her choices. So reassuring when one is spending money and wants to make the right decision the first time! I would not hesitate to recommend her expertise to anyone needing direction and imagination for any home project. In addition to her design skill, Rael is a delightful person to work with and has an instinct for connecting with people and understanding their needs. We will be calling her again for the next project.

Working with Rael on our new house was far and away the wisest move my husband and I could have made. Before bringing her on board, we had agonized for weeks and lost considerable sleep over the endless “finishing” decisions (all crucial) that had to be coordinated and finalized. We were so utterly overwhelmed that our dream home was at risk of becoming a nightmare.
But from the moment we met Rael, we felt relieved and energized by her obvious experience, expertise, and exquisite eye for detail: immediately, we knew that we were in good hands. We were, and are, immensely impressed by her careful consideration of how best to harmoniously integrate every aspect of the house (including wall colours, window casings, trim, floor coverings, kitchen cabinets and counters, staircases and railings, fireplace mantels and stonework); with her meticulous attentiveness to our needs (not to mention our budget), she far exceeded our expectations. A consummate professional, Rael listened closely to our vision for the house, treating it as if it were her own. We simply cannot speak highly enough of her artistic talents and practical know-how as well as her personal warmth and down-to-earth demeanour. Because of her, our dream is a reality.

Working with Rael from Raelistic Artistic has been nothing but a pleasure in every way. I phoned her in a panic during interior colour decisions, I needed to give my final choices to the painter within a few days, and I felt frozen in my choices. She was in my home the next day, I showed her some of my choices, and explained the “feel” I wanted in my home. Rael totally got our vision and recommended a palette that included her custom colours. She is professional, friendly, and takes a genuine interest in your project. She has an incredible eye for colour and details, and is all about making the client feel comfortable and excited about the final decisions. So far we have only the ceiling and trim done, looks beautiful and soft, I am so excited to see the final result in a few weeks. I would highly recommend her for any size project.

Rael really has a knack for combining contemporary Ideas and products into her designs. I worked with Rael and her husband on their own home and was happy to take their existing 1960’s home, and create something really unique.

We had recently purchased a condo in Kelowna. We were having trouble making a decision with paint color and to finalize the renovations. Went in Houzz and searched for interior designers in area. Rael ‘s pictures from previous design jobs reflected what we wanted in our condo. We met with Rael and were very pleased with her advice on paint color. She gave us great ideas on how to finish off our kitchen island and advice on the kitchen backsplash. Very pleased with Rael’s professionalism, her guidance and support to complete our renovations
Cathy & Clint – Saskatchewan
We hired Rael for a color consult when doing a reno/refresh in our home. She was excellent…she listened, had so many ideas,and was extremely professional.
The finished look was exactly what we had hoped for, thanks to Rael’s expertise and guidance.

We had a particular look we were trying to achieve with our new TV set design. Bringing together the various design elements of the UBC Okanagan campus buildings was not going to be easy. We needed to start with a faux cement look that mimicked the concrete elements in two of our new buildings on campus. The challenge was to find a painting company that knew how to give us that look and could do it in a timely and affordable way. The answer was Raelistic Artistic Professional Painting & Design. The concrete faux finishing was perfect! The team was professional, creative and easy to work with. Rael ensured that we got the finished look that we needed. The UBCO.TV set looks amazing and we couldn’t have done it without them!

Rael and her team made our updating of our house so enjoyable for both my husband and myself. Rael paid attention to every detail and ensured the job was done very well and cheerfully. My husband and I found her advice and suggestions invaluable. We both were so impressed how she handled our different likes and opinions so well. Rael’s sense of design and color is a gift, and we were so lucky to have her help us thru this exciting time. We are now living in our harmonious “new” home and enjoying every minute of it… We recommend Rael highly. “Five stars”

From the first meeting to review colours, to them showing up when they said they said, on time every day. There was a plan from start to what room was next. This created the least amount of disruption. The house was kept as clean as possible and last but not least the skill and finished product was, is, second to none. I think my house looks great. Thank you. I mean every word.
John – West Kelowna
Rael and her team has been a pleasure to work with! We appreciated their professionalism but also their attention to detail. Their creative input throughout has truly transformed our newly acquired house into one that we now call home. They were able to prioritize their work such that we were able to get back to our routine as quickly as possible, and they cared for our home as much as they would their own. We look forward to having them work on our future projects.

I have worked with Raelistic Artistic frequently in the last few years but most recently on a job that was a very challenging renovation – mine! I hired Rael to paint the ceiling of my home after it had been stripped of it’s 1980’s, yellowed “popcorn” texture. I have known Rael to be very particular on job sites and to want her work to be perfect. I expected slightly lower standards on this old ceiling though as the original quality of the drywall was substandard and many drywall repairs had to be done subsequently. Rael would not accept anything but the best however, and I caught her up on top of a ladder with a light examining the ceiling and marking out areas that required additional work prior to her putting on her final coat of paint. As a result we have a perfect looking flat, painted ceiling that has far exceeded my expectations. Thanks so much Rael!

We had an amazing experience with Rael. Her attention to detail was incredible. We knew what we were looking for in paint colours and she couldn’t find the exact colour we wanted so she made the perfect one for us! It turned out incredible and we have the house of our dreams!! We look forward to working with her again. Thanks so much for all your help. The house is wonderful! Thanks so much Rael!

Over the last several years I have had the pleasure to work closely with Rael and her team on many projects. Rael’s amazing attention to detail and unwavering commitment to top-notch customer service are just a couple of the reasons that I will always look to Rael when painting expertise is needed. As a painting contractor myself, I have found that hiring other contractors can be tricky for many reasons, but Rael is always a pleasure. From quoting to the final brush stroke, Rael will ensure that your entire project runs smoothly and looks fabulous!

Rael came over for a painting consultation. She’s a breath of fresh air, so positive and energetic. I have been a pretty good painter and good with colours with lots of experience in the past, but she blew me out of the water. I was very impressed. I have already passed on a couple of her cards to a real estate agent I know.
– Brenda – Kelowna BC
Rael and her team were quick, efficient and professional. Rael’s attention to detail is unsurpassed, and we were impressed with her level of professionalism and quality of workmanship. Rael also provided creative design consultation to help bring the look together, while taking it to the next level. Thank you Rael, we love our new look!

Selecting your paint colours can be an incredibly daunting task. I would recommend seeking advice from a professional, and in particular, from Raelistic Artistic Professional Painting and Design. During a renovation I contacted Rael to help me select both the interior and exterior colours for my home. She had a thoughtful approach and took the time to listen to my ideas. She looked at my furniture, cabinets, lighting, etc. to identify colours that would compliment, not compete with, the decor.
I thoroughly enjoyed working with her as she is a true professional with a sophisticated, yet down-to-earth approach to her business. Above all, she genuinely cares about her clients and works hard to ensure that they are happy with the finished results. For these reasons, I strongly recommend Raelistic Artistic.

She pays as much attention to the trim lines as we do to the balance of our wines.

Thank you all so much for all you time and hard work work prepping, and painting. The house looks amazing, and feels like home now. Your presence in the house will be missed. I really appreciate your time and attention to detail and will be happy to recommend your services to my friends. All the best!

In short, Rael and her team are true professionals, and painted our house to utmost satisfaction. Rael was happy to address any concerns we had during the process. She was very easy to work with, and we enjoyed her good nature while working about our house for the two weeks. Rael stuck to her exact quote (which I might add was VERY competitive) and completed the job in exactly the amount of time she estimated it would take… even with our unsettled weather (Spring 2011). I wouldn’t hesitate whatsoever in referring them, and in fact my wife has to several of her clients that come to the house and have seen their work. Thanks to you Rael and team, job well done and thanks so much for the gift for Jesse (our 4 year old) who was ‘tickled pink’ with Rael
– Ron and Sonia – West Kelowna BC
Thank you so much for making our re-paint run so smoothly! We are so happy you were referred to us, and will pass your name along to our friends.

This is long overdue, but I just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with the painting of my townhouse. I couldn’t have asked for a better job….the attention to detail was awesome. Also your colour choices were right on. Although I wouldn’t have chosen them myself, I find them very warm and relaxing and couldn’t imagine having any other colours. You definitely have an eye for colour!
Thanks so much. You and your team are lots of fun to work with (loved the sense of humours) and remain professional at the same time. Please thank everyone on my behalf for all their hard work.
I will be sure to refer you if the opportunity arises. Thanks again and take care.

Rael was quite lovely to work with. We are so happy with our wonderful new colours she helped us choose. The Raelistic Artistic crew was comprised of very detail oriented painters, which was exactly what we were after. They painted our whole house, and overall we are very pleased with our decision to hire them.
– Jane W. – Kelowna BC
We asked Rael to paint our house last year. The previous color was a salmon/pink and was always something that we’d wanted to change. From Rael’s bang on color selection, to her crew’s professionalism and dedication to quality, we’ve got a beautiful house that we’re proud of inside and out! Thanks Rael!
