“I wouldn’t have thought a color so dark would look good in here but it does.”

“There is something beautiful about a plain canvas, the nothingness of the beginning that is so simple. It’s the paint that changes it’s meaning and the hand, that creates the story. Every piece begins the same, but in the end are all uniquely different.” ~ Piper Payne

Suzanne Coté the principle artist and business owner


Suzanne Cote, Colorado Custom Wall finishes

Suzanne Coté is the owner of Colorado Custom Wall Finishes and the principle artist, serving the greater Front Range since 1995.

Suzanne obtained a Bachelors in Studio Art and Communications at Oneonta State University, New York. After travel in Europe, a re-emerging first passion for art and aesthetics compelled her to return to school for Interior Design in Denver.

She rediscovered the pure gratification of putting color and specialty finishes on walls in artistic ways. With brushes in hand she went on to study a broad range of decorative painting techniques at The School of Applied Arts, Denver. In her ongoing education, she continues to seek out novel methods and finds inspiration through travel and private study with leading artists and master craftsmen in North America and Europe.

Her mission is to leave every space she works on more beautiful.

“Watching Suzanne in action made me realize she is a true Wall Whisperer!”

~ Noel Pascale

“Instead of the empty shell of a space that once was my foyer, now, when I enter my home, I can’t believe the feeling of warmth and comfort that surrounds me.”
