Based in Santa Barbara, California, Pristine Finishes is owned and operated by John Kimble. John has studied the teachings - and follows the proven traditions - of European old masters. He adheres to impeccably high standards and principles often lost in today’s high-paced construction and remodeling markets. 

John began painting and decorating in 1997 as an apprentice to an English master painter in Portland, Oregon. John in 2004 apprenticed as a faux finisher with Guerin Swing and the internationally renowned, Guerin Design and Development. Working with elite Los Angeles designers, contractors, architects, and a “who’s who” of A-list clientele, John immersed himself in high-end decorative and faux finishes found at prestigious hotels, nightclubs, restaurants, and estates. After 10 years with Guerin Design, John relocated to Santa Barbara where he lives with his two children.

From straight paint to multi-layered marbling, from faux bois to liquid-plasma walls, and from concrete overlays to ornate gilded stencils and more, Pristine Finishes is ready to consult on projects large and small, and to bring your vision to life. Let Pristine Finishes execute the look you want with color and texture that exceed your expectations.
