CJ Hurley
Century Arts

We are a husband and wife team operating a small studio dedicated to fine art, design and restoration consultation. With backgrounds as artists and designers, we offer a strong knowledge of art and architectural history. We are passionate about art, architecture, our clients, their houses, and the kind of lifestyle they want to live in their homes.

A Very Personal Touch

We help people create a living environment that speaks intimately of those who dwell there, honors the architectural legacy of their home, and makes it an important part of their own personal history.

Our projects range from full home restoration to the decoration of a single room. Our consultations assist people in understanding their home’s architectural history so they can make the best decisions in retaining its integrity while making it comfortable to live in today. We specialize in design, color consultation, one of a kind hand-painted friezes and artwork primarily for historic homes.

Care For Priceless Beauty

Homes aren’t merely the places that people dwell. Home is the spiritual heart of our society, our refuge, our place of contentment, and the feelings that home evokes are unique and precious to every individual. It’s priceless. Historic homes are extra powerful because they not only speak intimately of those who live there now, but they speak of generations of people who came before.

Whether working on an historic or new construction home, we help people decorate with fine details that are deeply meaningful and rich with historic integrity. When working on new construction, we strive to incorporate the qualities that people cherish in historic homes, making for more intimate, comfortable and homey dwelling spaces.

What People Are Saying…


“As our lead color designer and project manager I am passionate about the people we work with. I am interested in their personal stories and getting at the heart of what’s important to them so that we can best meet their needs.”

— Barbara Pierce

“Here we are in our house and enjoying Christmas and the holidays! With every turn we think of you both and can’t thank you enough for all of your inspirations and care.”

— Khoury family

“We want you to know how very pleased we are with the way our house looks now. You turned a nightmare of indecision into a big sigh of relief. It was great getting to know you and the process had a stress reducing flow. We love the results!”

— Dave and Kay

“Thanks again for the fantastic work and your expertise. We loved working with you and hope to do so again soon.”

— Mark and Kirk

“Once again, the painting exceeded our expectations. The three pieces together are stunning. You guys have been wonderful to work with and your paintings really add a beautiful focal point for when visitors come. We hope that if you ever come to the valley we can proudly show you our home.”

— Dave and Irene

“Well, the painters are all done and the house looks fantastic! Thank you again for your excellent advice and for your knowledge and expertise.”

— Todd K.

“The work is finished and I couldn’t be happier! You captured warm and inviting! Even on a typical Portland day like today, it is beautiful with the trim color changing depending on the light. Thanks again for steering me in the right direction – it is very much appreciated.”

— Linda O.

“The easiest way to say it is that Barbara knows exactly what she is doing when it comes to color. Our neighborhood tends to be beige and she made some color changes from what we had. It turned out amazing – it gave color to a beige neighborhood but at the same time it absolutely fits in with the neighborhood. She is decisive and confident; when she left we felt very good about the colors and had the confidence that the house would look great – and it did. The neighbors gave us compliments. We plan on calling Barbara when we get around to some interior painting we want to do.”

— N. Bachelder

“The understanding that architecture, and the applied arts are of equal importance to the human environment inspires me as an artist. My desire is to find a way to seamlessly incorporate art into our living environments, where life and art are not separate from one another, but are a holistic one.” — CJ Hurley and Barbara Pierce
