Fresh Decorating Looks – Designer’s Guild Wallpaper

Designers Guild wallpaper

Designers Guild wallpaper

We were really pleased with a beautiful wallpaper – it’s Designer’s Guild Basilica – pale crocus, with an incredible light beading on the pattern which catches the light. Subtle and very elegant . We were commissioned to decorate our client’s Dressing Area leading from the Master Bedroom.

This wallcovering is inspired, according to Designers Guild ” by our much loved Basilica silk jacquard weave” “printed in five colourways with soft, lustrous beaded effect”

overwhelmed that all our hard work has paid off.
We’ve worked on every type of home, including traditional Victorian decorating schemes, luxury
apartments, and country home decorating, but always go above and beyond to deliver the best quality
workmanship possible. It doesn’t matter what sort of project it is, each and every one of our clients gets
the same amount of dedicated time and attention.

Marcus Hartwall, Managing Director of Houzz UK and Ireland, said: “We’re so pleased to award Best of

The Weedon Project – something a little different

An interior designer we love working for asked if we fancied tackling something a little different – it was time to crack open the hobnobs. And sit and think.

WWII ex MOD ammunition stores building – in Weedon Northamptonshire.  Challenging? certainly! and that was BEFORE  the climbing wall was installed!!

The building hadn’t been touched for over thirty years, the dust was undisturbed, (and so the Weedon Spiders had become quite happy in their home… ) and what with the many layers of distemper /and other traditional paints, the badly degraded surfaces needed a lot of our TLC and experience of old properties to bring the property up to standard.

We applied eco paints – one of our favourites, Earthborn, for those keen to ensure that old surfaces can breathe. There are some interesting original timber bands in the brickwork, maybe you know of someone, (long since retired –  I know!) who worked there  and can let us know what part they played in the buildings use. There is also an enclosed deep reservoir of water outside, maybe ready as a fire wall or source in case of explosion?

Anyway. It was a great project to be involved in. It’s open to the public.

Hand Painted Furniture – Bathrooms

burrough bathroom 3 burrough bathroomThere is something I find peaceful about decorating bathrooms – maybe the calm space, the warmth and often the gentle reflections from the smooth surfaces of porcelain and marble and metals.

This project recently completed is hard to photograph, so a couple of pictures and a few words hopefully will give you the atmosphere.

Firstly we decorated the client’s home several years ago, she didn’t want or need radical change in the bathroom, but a bit of Fizz!

So. We hand painted the woodwork, the furniture and bath surrounds. And then dragged a finish over, and laid gold leaf on the drag finish lines. Way too subtle to show up here – but trust me, absolutely gorgeous. Suffused warm reflection and a beautiful sparkle. Satisfying. Very.

Hand Painted Furniture – Kitchens

swiss 026 A kitchen is usually one of the busiest areas in a home – and a recent trend for slightly distressed paint finishes on units can work well. So, as with anything that you want to enjoy and will spend time looking at, it wants to be done properly. We can of course make a sleek and blemish free effect, or like here, a new built unit look timeless, with Vintage Patina – and as old as the hills!

Expert paint knowledge, expert preparation and application technique pays off in the Wow factor. We all need to head off happy in a morning and the Breakfast Room or Kitchen is a great place to start! #traditionalpainter #handpainted
