Specialising in painting techniques, such as wood graining, marbling, trompe l’oeil and gilding as well as restoring Antique furniture, these have included repairs to old painted finishes as well as Antiquing New Furniture or specialised effects to ensure a piece fits into the decorative interior environment is may reside, such as colour matching with the soft furnishings etc. This creates a softer, worn look that fits in with the surroundings.

Wallpaper is not a new concept and neither is surrounding your space in pictures that reflect your tastes, moods and personality. This is the ideal way to create the living area you need to unwind after a tough day at the office. Create the view of your dreams.
