HISTORIC DECORATION CONSULTANCY SERVICE

Historic Decoration offers a consultation service on the reinterpretation of historic interiors for interior designers, architects and owners of period houses.

It can be a time-consuming task to search for the correct fabric for a Jacobean drawing room, suitable ironmongery for Georgian doors or a skilled craftsman who can sympathetically restore a family antique or copy a period curtain pelmet or carpet.

We work with a range of highly skilled small businesses, who make period style wallpapers, textiles etc. that are not easy to track down and some are only available through trade sources.
