Johnston's Featured in COMO Living: The Buzz on Family Biz

We are so excited to have had the opportunity to share the story of our family business with COMO Living Magazine. Working with relatives can be difficult, but here at Johnston’s, we think we have it down pat.

In this article, co-owner Melissa Murphy discussed her experiences joining the Johnston’s team as she began in 1996 working under her uncle, Gary. Melissa married co-worker and now co-owner, Blair Murphy (or Murph, as he’s affectionately known around here), and the rest is history.

“My only full-time job has been at Johnston’s, so I don’t know anything else but working with family.” - Melissa Murphy

Working at Johnston’s is truly a family affair. In Melissa’s 21 years with the business, she’s seen the company grow from 8 to 21 people - which she says has really made Johnston’s feel even more like family.

We believe the family atmosphere contributes not only to improving our company culture but also to the clients' experience as well. At Johnston Paint and Decorating, we take pride in treating you like family the moment you walk in our doors and as we walk you through every step of your home decorating experience.
