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!

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.
