Glamour in Mayfair

We completed a project last month in Mayfair for our clients, Soma Build. The spec was somewhat glamorous and included a dramatic wallpaper from Thibaut, metallic paint from Eico (which was sprayed) and Benjamin Moore Aura Satin.

The ever reliable and illuminating before-and-after photographs: this was challenging work, dealing with severe damage, which involved rot removal and treatment, joinery repairs and full redecoration.

Our work in Mayfair

We are currently working on a distinctive redecoration project in Mayfair – it’s a notable property and has some fascinating mid-20th century history.

We’re not able to publish any work-in-progress photos, but are looking forward to collecting some images of the finished project – we’ve been impressed by the boldness of the paint, colour and wallpaper choices made.

Chiffon White and Grey Steel by Dulux

The team have been working on the redecoration of a 2-bedroom Victorian flat in Brixton over the past ten days.

Our clients selected two attractive Dulux Trade colours for the living room: Chiffon White 4 for the ceiling, cornice, frieze and picture rail; and Grey Steel 3 for the walls.

We’ll post more photos after the job is completed in the coming days…

Benjamin Moore Aura Exterior Flat

Benjamin Moore paints continue to impress us with their performance and quality.

On this recent project, an attractive shop facade on Hackney Road, we used Aura Exterior Flat tinted to Lamp Room Gray by Farrow & Ball. The Aura Exterior range – running through Flat, Low Lustre and Satin – will be particularly suited to anyone seeking flatter sheen levels.

Water-based, like all Benjamin Moore products, the Aura Exterior provides a richness and opacity like no other non-solvent paint we’ve used.

A living room in Breakfast Room Green

Our client went successfully against the grain here, choosing Breakfast Room Green by Farrow & Ball for her living room. This striking colour complements the high ceilings, large windows and period features of this space.

Llewelyn’s – a new restaurant for south London

We’re excited about the imminent opening of a restaurant project we have been working on for the past couple of months, Llewelyn’s. (The soft launch is taking place until Sunday 9 April.)

Do take a look at the Llewelyn’s Instagram page, which should inspire you to make a booking forthwith.

We wish the team all the best for spring 2017 and beyond.

Earl’s Court flat redecoration

A look back to the photography of the painting and decorating we completed in west London in late 2015.

We completely redecorated the property – a lovely two-bedroom flat in Earl’s Court – using a mixture of interesting paints, some from Eico of Iceland, and wallpaper from 17 Patterns.

Eico gold paint detail

A striking and attractive detail on a comprehensive decorating project we carried out in south London: we painted these routed grooves in gold paint from Eico

An Edwardian living room in south London

It was nice to revisit this job – the redecoration of a living room in a lovely Edwardian house – to photograph it properly.

The work, including the demanding rescue of the badly cracked ceiling, was definitely all worth it.

The main wall colour is Calamine, and the woodwork was finished in Slipper Satin – both by Farrow & Ball.
