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.

The best wallcovering project a craftsman decorating team could wish for


Gold leaf wallcovering

Decorating with heritage papers

Craftsmanship wall coverings

Recently I spent time with Allyson McDermott, and had the privilege of seeing how a fine wallcovering was created in her studios prior to Harborough Decorators team hanging it in a very special location.
Using gold leaf, distemper and traditional flock, the results are truly outstanding, and will last for many many years. The room will inspire many who travel through or sit quietly and we are proud to have been associated with this historic space. A couple of pictures wont do the room justice. The light travels over the surface and is just amazing. There weren’t any offcuts – each drop was made to measure, each drop numbered to correspond to the plan as it went around the room. Made all the team feel very proud when it was finished!

Wallpaper – decorate to transform a London town house.


 

Hand printed wallcovering

wide width and hand printed – craftsman task in progress

We were really excited to hang this hand printed wallcovering for one of our clients homes. A luxury wallpaper which (prior to hanging) required edge trimming by hand, this was an American manufactured 32″wide (English papers are usually 21″ wide).

Scott Maddux Associates –  award winning designer had specified the whole design scheme, where traditional decorating skills including expert wallpaper hanging were required.

Great team to work with, we include Scott and Jo amongst our “Most Fun To Work With Designers”.

Award Winning Decorating


Easton Neston Country House grand corridor

Skilled Painter & Decorator

Top Quality fittings, fine setting, plus craftsman decorator. Great Results.

Exquisite fine plaster work
Painstakingly fine detailed decorating work

Award winning Results!

Easton Neston House, has won a RIBA award- and the quality of conservation work has been recognised. A major restoration project, we know that it takes more than just a skilled painter and decorator to be chosen to work in one of the finest country houses in England!

Our team has enjoyed bringing the home and European Headquarters to Leon Max to a magnificent standard, and was pleased to see it recently featured on television. With clear instruction from Ptolemey Dean Architects and inspired interior design, the rooms are a combination of refined elegance and Wow!

Heritage qualified, directed by Mac Devereux, the Team certainly understand the usual decorating history of construction of a traditional Listed Building and enjoy using both modern and traditional materials including limewash or gilding. At Easton Neston House, Towcester, it was a massive project! We had plenty of opportunity to appreciate and share extensive knowledge amongst a strong team of historic and heritage craftsmen.

Wallpaper & Wallcoverings


Fancy a Feature Wall with designer wallpaper? – although we have worked around the Market Harborough area for over 35 years, we are very well known for our work in Rutland and London. Simple or elaborate wallpapering requires great skill and patience, it’s an utterly fantastic instant transformation, especially if you want a jaw dropping feature wall!  Great impact for a Bedroom Birthday Surprise or a lift for a guest room when a family wedding is the big event of the year.

It takes years of training to achieve stunning results – special preparation and quiet patience before applying luxurious papers, fabric and gilding finishes to walls. We have enjoyed creating amazing results with flock paper, hand prints, painted silk wallcoverings and metallic thread coverings. Involve us in the early stages, and we can share over 35 years’ experience with you. Call and speak to Mac Devereux-Batchelor – we love to chat through new ideas!
