WPS Paint & Decorating Center is a Kotula family business, started in 1982. Three generations of the Kotula family have molded the WPS into what it is today, a family business selling top quality products and services. Jim, the co-owner and father, learned the wallpaper hanging trade from his grandfather. He has spent most of his working life changing the landscape of people’s homes by doing his meticulous work. Jim and Marci, co-owner and mother, decided to open a store selling and installing wallpaper in Baltimore.
As the business grew, and moved farther North into Harford County, they decided to add more products and services. The business has expanded over the last 3 decades with added premium paint lines, artwork, decorative furniture and more. Adrianne, the interior designer and daughter, has taken over the design services and decorating needs of The Wallpaper Studio. She not only picks the stock wallpaper and decorative accessories for the store, but also does outside design consulting. With a design degree from Drexel University, Adrianne’s unmatched eye for color and uncanny ability to see the potential of any room makes her an integral part of this family business. Ryan, the general manager and son, runs the store’s everyday operations. With a degree in business from Villa Julie College, he takes care of the ordering and stocking inventories, making sure that the products for which people know The Wallpaper Studio are available and ready to be sold. Finally, Mike, Marci’s brother and paper hanger, also works in the business with Jim hanging wallpaper. He works hard everyday to transform a customer’s home by simply adding the pop of custom flare that wallpaper brings. WPS is a business run by family to ensure the service and quality is impeccable. Marci goes as far as to say “We know our products. Its what we do day-in and day-out. Our customers are serviced by experts, not someone who was promoted from the lawn and garden department last week. We are one-on-one with our customers and know what we’re doing.” The Wallpaper Studio is service driven and here to make your decorating experience as easy as possible and something you can be happy with for years to come.
