Chad Green - Bend Location

A famous French designer once remarked that in order for a house to be successful, the objects in it must communicate with one another, respond and balance one another. 

In other words, as our very own Chad Green will tell you – the design is in the details.

“I was inspired to become a designer because of my passion for the details that create the space and make a house a home,” says Chad, who brings a sharp eye for color and design plus over two decades of professional expertise to the Standard Paint & Flooring team.   

Just as every customer has their own personality, so does every room. Chad says that while a home can be modern or classic in style, its unique character is truly defined by the details it contains – right down to the decorative objects. 

“You’ll find me searching through Crate & Barrel, Cost Plus or local resale shops for those special, one-of-a-kind items that will express the personality of a space,” he says, adding that quite often, the homeowner already owns the perfect piece. 

“I like discovering that one piece of art or furniture in a customer’s home that is a focal point – or a treasured heirloom or memento that means the most to them. We can then use accent colors to help bring out its beauty.”


Favorite colors to work with: I find that grays, blues and whites are universal in that they can be paired with just about anything. 

My favorite place to find inspiration is: Design magazines. 

Paint or wallpaper? Paint is not only more easily changed, it’s so versatile. You can create a light, airy room, or the illusion of a bigger space simply by choosing the right paint color.  

My design superpower is: Customer service. 

How I describe working in a family business: 1) Passion for customers, 2) Passion for employees and 3) Hometown feel. 

The most rewarding part of my job is…: Receiving a letter, call or email from a happy client who is head over heels in love with how their finished project looks.
