Our Story

Serving the Excelsior area since the 1940s, our business was founded when Mr. Stans had a dream to open his own store on Water Street in downtown Excelsior selling paint, stain and wallpaper. He called his establishment "The Color Center" and began serving the first of three generations of clients.


The Color Center moved down the block to acquire more space in order to offer tile, carpet, and dustless sanding. In 2006 needing even more space to showcase its ever increasing offerings, the store moved to its current location, 701 Highway 7. In August 2010, Carolyn Manhatton became the current owner. Now the establishment is called Excelsior Paint & Design. When asked about the amount of moving in the company's history Carolyn says: "The only place we are moving is up, meaning that we are focusing on our showrooms upstairs. We are lucky to have that space...there is a constant rotation of products both upstairs and downstairs."

Carolyn and her staff strive to maintain a level of quality and personal service that sets Excelsior Paint & Design apart.
