Faux Fabric Wall Treatments

Faux fabric wall treatments impart warmth and drama to any interior. Decorative painting techniques simulate the appearance of lustrous antique silk wall coverings, or, if you prefer, textured woven fabrics.

For example, walls can be “wrapped” in hemp, linen or moiré silk paint effects. We can even paint faux ‘seams’ to create the effect of a fabric-panelled room.

So whether it’s painted denim-look walls for a boy’s bedroom or peach silk walls for a Georgian drawing room or the look of burlap for a midcentury modern interior, we can emulate whatever textile or fabric your project requires.

Nicola Thwaites Specialist Decorating, London provides beautiful bespoke paint finishes for traditional and contemporary interiors. Our range includes colour washes and traditional colour glazes, plaster effects, marbling, wood graining, stone blocking, gilding, fresco finishes, and decorative painting. We also paint and gild furniture, in addition to architectural elements like plaster cornices, dados, and panels.

We work with interior designers, contractors and private clients.
