Our Story

Bristol Paints (or R'n'B Decorator Centre) opened in Pambula in 1995 by Paul Brand and Gary Rowlands. Paul also had 20+ years previous experience as a professional trade painter.

In 2003, Gary stepped away from the paint scene and Paul took over the business solely. He became well-known in the community as the knowledgeable paint guru for all advice and technical needs.

In 2011 Paul hired a young, ruggedly handsome fellow named Mick to help manage the store...

In 2023 Paul decided it was time to retire. So Mick and his wife took over the store to continue providing outstanding service, product advice and knowledge to both trade painters and DIYers alike.
