Gayle Russell
Designer — Middletown

Gayle Russell has been with Hikes Point Paint for over a decade but her award-winning career in design spans 30+ years. Her designs have been featured in dozens of Home Showcases and Remodeling Shows in Louisville and Southern Indiana, as well as the refurbishing of small-town Kentucky. Although she values all aspects of design, her love of wallcovering is evident in the amazing, diverse, in-stock patterns she selects for the showroom. Having an exceptional eye for color as well as knowledge of lighting, she can take your colors and transform them into a much newer direction or create a whole new palette exclusively for you. With her degree in Interior Design, many years of experience, and multiple talents, Gayle is a very valuable member of our team.
