Pretty Stone Georgian Cottage - Farrow & Ball



We recommend colours for our customers, to match or improve existing colours. 
This is a favourite for Georgian doors, it is a very 
light blue with a silvery grey tone.
The mullion surrounds are painted with Santex Mid Stone, 
complimenting the colours in the stonework. 
The sash windows in Dulux White,
and the door in Farrow & Ball Light Ball.  
Mullion surrounds Santex Mid Stone -  Dulux White window frames  - Door F&B Light Blue No22

This Listed Georgian property required a new sill
 in one of the windows and the back windows repaired and painted. 


A very pretty house completed, located in Shepton Mallet.

Dramatic Darks



A black painted wall is a fabulous backdrop for books
- the shelves are painted in Mylands, gloss finish


A straight line is masked to divide the hallway 
from the stair wall colours.

The black wall leads the eye into the passageway 
for a dramatic contrast

Little Greene Paint - Living room / Kitchen




The two bedroomed property required a complete colour change throughout 
the house, from Magnolia to mid tones.


The dark grey-green shades were chosen to link to the kitchen units, 
now integral to the open plan room 


A particularly enjoyable project at South Horrington Village, Wells, which involved converting the kitchen and living room into an open plan living space.


This is one side of a huge complex, originally a hospital, now a village. The principal architect was George Gilbert Scott (he designed St Pancras Station and the Albert Memorial in London)

Colours of London - Coordinated Painted Furniture


Painting a home in new colours can often result in updating the furniture too. Our client already owned this old chest of drawers and two modern bedside drawers. We used Mylands - Blackout, to coordinate the furniture with the colour scheme in his bedroom. Loving the dark contemporary paint colours from www.mylands.com
In the workshop
We are frequently asked to paint chest of drawers - draws often require carpentry work to enable them to open smoothly e.g. replacing draw guides.

No21 Painting - Vicars Close Wells


Such a pleasure walking to work to paint a property at Vicars Close, 
owned by the Cathedral - one of the oldest, 
occupied Streets in Europe


Painting Georgian sash windows, a stunning view 
- if you can see past the tourists!

Lots of painting required on this totally panelled room

Warning WET PAINT! Do not enter 
You would be amazed how many tourists 
drift in to get a sneaky look at the property


Using Distemper for breathable walls


These properties are larger than you think - The Georgians changed this property, one of twenty-seven, originally built in 1430 (there is an original preserved painting on the wall in one of the bedrooms)

Bedroom in Pale Grey & White


 Blackened by Farrow & Ball  - listed as a cool white with a hint of grey, the colour performs at its best with white woodwork - our customer selected this combination for her bedroom in Wells Somerset. 
Use gloss white woodwork for more contrast against Estate Emulsion




From Magnolia to pale grey - the trend towards the grey family 
still feels fresh against white paintwork

Painted Rectory Staircase - Loft Extension

Walls painted in Dulux Diamond Snowman
It was a long way down - four flights and hundreds of spindles later, 
all requiring many layers of paint.


...and always many screw holes to fill on a new staircase 


Finally, the stair rail was oiled to show the natural wood
