Painted Finishes for Architectural Ornament

Nicola Thwaites Specialist Decorating, London UK, offers painted finishes for interior architectural ornament, including decorative plaster, friezes, cornices, ceiling roses, pediments, pilasters and columns.

Traditional decorative techniques like stipple and wipe, gilding, and hand painting can help restore decorative plasterwork. Paint effects can also give a period look to new or replacement mouldings and other architectural features. Marbling, wood graining, gilding, dragging, colour glazes, metallic effects, antique patinas, and other faux finishes are available for doors, window casements, fireplaces, panelling, skirting boards, banisters, furniture, and architectural ornament.

We have worked extensively in Georgian, Victorian, Arts & Crafts, and Art Deco interiors.

Based in London and Sussex, Nicola Thwaites Specialist Decorating works with interior designers, architects and  private clients.
