West London Lincrusta

I was invited by the owners of this beautiful 1880 West London, Victorian property to provide a quotation, via email initially, to decorate the hall stairs and landing with Lincrusta - Art Nouveau, dado panels. Additionally, all walls were to be lined and two walls were to be hung with fine wallpaper.



A few emails followed and a site visit, the fine wallpaper was chosen - Sanderson "Roses and Etchings", and the job was booked in.

After two weeks of frantic activity the project was completed - all walls lined over three floors and the Lincrusta installed. My clients were delighted with the result, which transformed the property and created even more character into this substantial traditional property.

Georgian Style in Oxshott

This fabulously proportioned, Georgian inspired, new build property in Oxshott - Surrey, is the latest in a line of London area projects that I have been fortunate enough to be working on recently.

I was invited by a London based Architect, of repute, to provide a quotation to install Lincrusta in one of the many bathrooms - this was swiftly increased into decorating a number of further rooms (Lincrusta to follow soon!).

Products used were predominately Little Greene Ultimatt paint, Cole & Son and Nina Campbell wallpapers - following fastidious preparation, of course.

Wallpaper hanging and painting disciplines were required, to exacting standards. The result was truly stunning, so was the reaction of the Architect's Interior Designer;

"Thank you for all your hard (tidy) work and for reinstalling my faith in Decorators!"

I also received a tick and gold star from the practice director... top of the class!

More information about further projects at this property to follow.
