The art of decoration

A message from Simon Rose, of PaintWorks Specialist Decoration...

PaintWorks was set up in February 2014, although new to decorating in Ludlow, I had been a decorator in London for many years.

Since then my Son, Owen has joined me. Like myself he is a perfectionist, but being much more artistically qualified, he is in charge of colour consultancy, custom furnishings and bespoke murals.

Our work covers all forms of interior and exterior decoration, in fact, variety is key. The ‘Specialist’ in the Company name, refers to paperhanging, especially silk, hessian, flocks and Lincrusta and all decorative paint effects.

I thoroughly enjoy working alongside clients, providing ideas where possible, helping them turn their ideas into a reality. I am really fortunate with the variety of my work, collaborating with different people, taking on different tasks in and around the beautiful Shropshire and bordering countryside.

In addition to quality decoration, I undertake many associated tasks. For example:

  • Installation of plaster coving and cornice. 
  • All aspects of carpentry; from simply adding decorative timber mouldings to flush panel doors, in order to provide interest, to making radiator covers. 
  • More recently, the complete restoration of Sash windows. 

This is particularly satisfying, i.e. replacing rotten timbers including cills to installing thermally efficient parting beads and staff beads.

Windows that have been sealed up for years can glide open with balanced weights and new cords. In effect it brings beautiful Georgian or Victorian windows completely up to date in terms of draught proofing, functionality and security.

With so many homes ‘listed’ or constrained, within a ‘conservation area’ it makes sense to update and upgrade rather than contemplate the immense cost of replacement.

‘PaintWorks’ is founded on old-school principles of pride, integrity, quality and reliability. We are really proud of the feedback received from clients. This can be viewed on the website: www.paintworksspecialstdecoration.co.uk
