great company

Mr. Nicoletti and his crew have restored and colorized a large Mediterranean villa for me in Santa Monica. Paintworks has significantly increased the appearance and value of this environment.



a very good choice

My family and I commissioned Joe Nicoletti for several projects over the past two-and-a-half years. We very much enjoyed working with him and feel he has great talent for producing beautiful and appropriate environments. Joseph is imaginative, artistic and professional. He does an exceptional job of integrating color and texture into the overall décor of any given space. I was particularly pleased and impressed with an excellent mural he created behind my desk – he used gold leaf and color to enhance the entire room. I would not hesitate to recommend Joseph for any project, large or small. He is a very good choice.



HIGHLY Recommended

Houck Construction has hand an on-going working relationship with Joe Nicoletti of Chameleon Paintworks for approximately nine years. He has completed many projects for our high-end residential remodels, including decorative ceilings and custom interior and exterior painting. Chameleon’s work has repeatedly been of the highest caliber, always paying strict attention to every detail. Both Joe and his employees have always demonstrated the utmost professionalism, skill, and expertise throughout our various projects. We look forward to hiring Chameleon Paintworks as a subcontractor on many future projects and give Joe Nicoletti the highest recommendation as a quality painting contractor.



Give him a wall and a brush!

Joe Nicoletti needs no letters of introduction, his work speaks volumes. He is an extraordinary artisan, a man with amazing vision and ability. As a writer and producer, I’ve worked with highly creative and talented designers. I am not an easy person to please on the set, or in the house. But Joe’s work has always exceeded my expectations, time after time. He listens, he responds, he contributes his unique vision, and best of all, his enthusiasm never lags.

It’s very rare to find someone who is talented, understands color, texture, associated nuance, and is also a genuinely good human being. I’ve seen Joe work with decorators, architects, know-it-all producers like myself, always enjoying the collaboration, never losing sight of his vision, never losing patience, forever willing to experiment, contribute, listen – the end results reflect his ability as an artist. Joes is able to translate words into color and many of his clients prefer to leave everything to his discretion – he handles that responsibility easily, and has yet to disappoint anyone.

Joe has a long list of credits and a beautiful portfolio of photographs that will give you a sense of his range. Obviously, I could go on for pages about this man. He’s talented and honest. You couldn’t ask for a better person to work with – give him a wall and a brush.



A fine decorative paint contractor

The Heinsbergen Company has been in the painting and decorating trade for three generations. Over the past 45 years, I have been involved in some of the most exciting and prestigious projects that exist, among them include some 750 theatres. For example, the Orpheum, the Wiltern, the Pantages chain, Los Angeles City Hall, and so forth.

Joe Nicoletti is very motivated, imaginative and constantly inspired. His passion is easily recognized, in the effort he incorporates into his projects. I have seen his work in publications, and he has applied new and exciting paint techniques to create particularly fine and beautiful spaces. I am confident that Joe can present the imagery, and produce the necessary involvement, to transform your space. I would not hesitate to recommend him as a fine decorative paint contractor.
