Case Study – Country House

Project Description

This project involved the external redecoration of the full property and the internal decoration of the large new extension which was traditionally built and blends in seamlessly to the original house. The building contractor for this project was shortlisted for a Constructing Excellence Award 2017 in the preservation and rejuvenation category.


Externally, our works included painting the lime render with a specialist lime paint, together with careful repainting of all the sash windows and rainwater goods.

Internally, a wide range of high class finishes were used. Our package included installing detailed fibrous plaster cornices of varying styles; we supplied and hung fine wallpapers, including a Zoffany Damask paper to all the staircases, which was blended with traditional Farrow & Ball colours on the woodwork trims.
