Murals and trompe-l'oeil


Murals and trompe-l'oeil can be situated virtually anywhere, on walls, ceilings or floors, interiors or exteriors. Working closely with the client or designer we  explore their ideas  with the help of  reference books, photographs,  or the surroundings, we draw up a scaled visualisation of the proposed design, with costings for labour and materials.

 

This trompe-l'oeil is the end wall of a private swimming pool that was still under construction.

 

​Paint effects 

Marbling, wood finishes, sponging, stippling and gilding.
 

Paint is an extremely versatile medium. The effect of decorative paint techniques lie to a considerable extent in the subtlety of coloured transparent glazes laid over a base colour. The limitless variations of depth and intensity in one colour informing, absorbing, reflecting and echoing the others can be mystifying and breath taking.

We can match existing materials such as stone, woods and fabrics. We'd gladly provide painted sample boards as part of a design proposal.

  From start to finnish We offer ​expert advice on your decoration projects and a full range of tradisnal decoration techniques including fine spry work for oremental plaster and cornices.
