Let’s decorate

If you are hankering for a new look – it makes sense to get an expert in. Especially if you have had building work done too! Unless you are like my Dad and his collection of Practical Householder magazines, keen to get sanding, smoothing, filling (then rinse and repeat)  before getting the vacuum out again and gingerly unravelling. The wallcovering that is. Specialist skills are required – and if you want the best results you definitely need a craftsman decorator , (time served, skilled and with muscles!!) to get the smooth all over paint finish or hang that FAB new wallpaper & transform your lounge! (or other family room of your choice!)

We will help you measure the quantity required. We will confirm a convenient date with you, supply our decorator to sheet up, protect all surfaces , prepare & paint the surfaces then apply the wallpaper for you.   – as always, we will leave a clean & tidy room, taking the waste away for recycling, leaving you with sensational results!!

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!

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”.

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!

Choosing the look for your home – story boards, mood boards paper & paint!


We are often asked what paint should we use? Little Greene paints are a high quality well established and reliable favourite, with Johnstone’s or Dulux paints very popular for modern apartments and conversions with sleek surfaces. Church or historic listed building work often calls for Limewash and specialist Keim paints, all involve our proven craftsman skills. Papers and Paints provide a renowned colour matching service, know their stuff and are highly regarded across the World for their expertise.

Preparation - interior decorator

Surface preparation prior to decorating

Beautifully designed wallpapers and wallcoverings give us the opportunity to shine and to transform your favourite places and spaces! You must allow extra time for preparationof the underlying surface, otherwise every surface blemish will be highlighted with a high sheen wallcovering, and of course, its very important to have already decided and installed any new lighting before the decorating project starts.
