From historically accurate work with original materials, to practical re-creations of historic decoration using new materials, we assist heritage professionals to present their vision of the most important heritage interiors.
Our experience in historic schemes is extensive, with both directors involved in running projects during their careers at Windsor Castle, Buckingham Palace, The Victoria & Albert Museum and many others. We have advised on colours, decoration and techniques drawing on our unrivalled experience of historic decoration.
We have decades of experience and offer advice on all of our paints and finishes and their suitability for different environments. We offer hand colour mixing and truly bespoke finishes for each unique project.
We are highly knowledgeable in traditional decoration, and have worked in many of England's finest and most prestigious buildings. We can advise on all types of paints and colours, make our own traditional soft distemper, and replicate finishes in the traditional manner.
