Owning a business is nothing new to Carolyn Manhatton. Her last business, Move Strategies & Solutions, helped Seniors move from their larger homes into smaller homes...it was all about rightsizing, not downsizing. Designing the new home was an important task that often meant moving walls, choosing paint colors, furniture, and carpet for the new nest! Working with people has always been an important ingredient in whatever Carolyn has done.

When the opportunity to purchase the Color Center came along, Carolyn embraced the change knowing that this would give her the opportunity to use her skills with a wider range of the population. Being from the Excelsior area herself, she knew this was a wonderful location for now and the future. Having a staff of designers and salespeople dedicated to the same goals was the icing on the cake!

She and her staff provide phenomenal customer service, product, and design.

Carolyn likes to tell people that she is living happily ever after in her new business.....come visit, you'll find the perfect answer for your home!
