Edwardian Staircase

I was asked a short time ago to renovate a Semi-Detached property interior throughout, very close to where I live. My client's parents have a Lincrusta wallcovering in there own home and so, naturally, my client asked me to install this incredible covering in his own new home.

The pattern used is Edwardian Dado and the paint is The Little Greene Paint Company "Chamois" oil based eggshell. The project was not exactly the most straight forward, from a planning point of view. But the result, as you can see, is a triumph!

Many thanks to my client, for his belief in my abilities and for his continued support - it is greatly appreciated.

William Morris Interior

I have great pleasure in publishing this post... I was fortunate enough to be invited to decorate the entire interior of this fantastic Victorian property in the West Midlands. My clients are avid admirers of William Morris and as result have decided to use modern Sanderson Morris papers throughout.

To date, I have decorated two bedrooms, the dining room and two of the drawing rooms... the generously proportioned rooms take the bold patterns with ease, creating comfortable "period" living spaces.

All fine wallpapers were supplied by Hearnshaws of Walsall and various paints supplied by The Little Greene Paint Company.

Victorian Exterior

It has taken some time, but, I have finally got around to photographing the finished exterior of this beautiful double-fronted Victorian house in Wednesbury, West Midlands.

All paints finishes were supplied by The Little Greene Paint Company with the exception of metallic gold enamel paint used on the ornate "cornice" which was supplied by A. S. Handover Ltd.

I hope that you will agree that it is a vast improvement from the "original" terracotta and blue scheme.
