Heritage Painting and Decorating by Harborough Decorators

Ta Dah! A stunning property in Devon –  beautiful sunlight reflecting from the sea and the glorious uninterrupted skies.

Interior decorating to painted furniture, painstaking care to decorate the plasterwork ceilings and walls, and exterior decorating to protect this listed building from the weather.

Blissful location for the Harborough Decorating team! , and a privilege to be working alongside other expert traditional craftsmen here. (Skillington’s of Derbyshire).

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

The best wallcovering project a craftsman decorating team could wish for


Gold leaf wallcovering

Gold leaf on distemper with flock –

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!

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.
