About The Diva
Divine Inspiration and Visual Assistance
The Paint Diva's real name is Cindy Gelormini. She is a Color Consultant and Benjamin Moore Color Expert from the Summit, NJ area with over 25 years in the Interior Design field, including 11 years working in a Benjamin Moore store. She is the go-to expert that people call when they have to paint their home. She was staging homes before it was called "staging", and was also a Realtor for a few years. Her specialty is working with sellers to prepare their home to go on the market and helping homeowners choose paint colors for their interiors and exteriors quickly and painlessly.
The Diva's Story
The Diva's life with paint began when she started painting murals, furniture and faux finishes in the 90's. In 2005 when the faux finishes were going out of style (and she almost fell off a 20 ft. extension ladder!) she hung up her brushes and went to work at a Benjamin Moore retailer as their in-store Designer and Color Consultant. She developed the Interior Design space and began working with hundreds of customers helping them to choose paint colors. She made the process of color selection so easy that customers came from all over New Jersey for her help. They made up nicknames for her like "The Paint Genie", "The Paint Guru" "The Paint Doctor" and "The Paint Whisperer". But the original one was "The Paint Diva' which is the one she decided to use. She was featured on Benjamin Moore's website as one of their color experts.
She started going into client's homes to help them select colors, eventually working with thousands of clients throughout New Jersey. Since many of her clients were buying or selling a home she obtained a Real Estate license but no longer sells real estate. She sticks to what she does best, which is her expertise as a color consultant. Over the years she developed a system for choosing colors quickly and efficiently that she eventually put into a book which will be released in 2022.
The Diva has hosted numerous seminars on paint colors and design trends, hosted a cable TV show "A Taste for Design", has appeared on radio, TV, podcasts and has been quoted in several magazines to talk about choosing paint colors.
She is also the Author and Illustrator of the children's book series "Robbie's World and His SPECTRUM of Adventures!" about a little penguin with Autism which was featured on The Today Show for Autism Awareness Day in 2021. She is the host of the podcast "Spectrum Perspectives" and founder of the "Robbie's World Foundation" which helps other families of someone with Autism.
