Our Team


Jean Hauser: President

When Jean Hauser brought her background in fashion merchandising and interior design to The Color House more than two decades ago, it marked a turning point for the family-owned Benjamin Moore paint and wall covering business.

With an eye for design, Hauser helped build a whole new side of the business her father-in-law started in 1963, encouraging the expansion of products and services and offering customers the ability to design home spaces that better reflected their personality and lifestyle.

Upon inheriting ownership of the business in 2016, Hauser, along with her team of 20 employees – including an operations manager and three certified interior designers – continued to transform The Color House, which has grown to become Rhode Island’s leading Benjamin Moore paint and design retailer.

The Color House has four locations in Cranston, North Kingstown, Wakefield and most recently, Middletown. In addition to full-service design, color consultation and expert color matching plus Benjamin Moore paint, tools and accessories, wall coverings, window treatments, fabrics and custom upholstery, The Color House invites customers to visit their beautiful, newly-renovated Benjamin Moore design showrooms for an unparalleled in-store experience.

Our team at The Color House is well-equipped with the expertise and talent to make any project into a masterpiece you will fall in love with for years to come. No project is too small or too big that we can't handle - Let us turn your house into a home today!
