Period Buildings in Wells - School Term

 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 & Deep Pink Roses

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.

All that Glitters 'is' Gold

A feature wall in the bedroom - an ever-popular trend, 
this was a fabric-backed glitter wallpaper. 
Glitter can also be applied to wet paint for more subtle effects.

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
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)
