It's a pleasure painting period buildings for the Cathedral School in Wells. We have had plenty of sunshine and hope it continues as there's lots of painting this month in preparation for the new term.

Oval Room Blue 85 by F&B for a chocolate box cottage.
Looking fabulous with deep pink roses in full bloom.
Farrow & Ball exterior paint isn't the most durable but their colours have a heritage appearance - not easy to replicate.

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,

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

Painted in Little Greene Absolute Matt Emulsion
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)

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.

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)
