The spray work was from a previous paint job and the customer wanted to retain as much of it as possible. We decided on painting the sign and pillars to brighten the shop front.

The paint specification for every flat has to be followed regardless of ownership, this is due to its historical grade listing.

The walls were painted in a Johnstones white vinyl matt, the pillars in a Johnstones grey eggshell, the windows in a Johnstones cream eggshell and all woodwork in a Johnstones white eggshell. The wooden beams were oiled with some linseed oil, giving life back to the old timber but also allowing it to pop.

The flat finish on all the paint work allows the floor, walls and timber beams to do the talking. The balanced mix of old meets contemporary gives you a stunning space.

The house back to something it should look like, an elegant Georgian town house, the exterior emulsion used was Johnstones Lamp Grey and Slipper Satin, finished off with a Johnstones London Grey high gloss, for the front doors. I am not a great fan of pvc faciers and guttering but on a building of this size it was a neccesary evil.

The entrance to the property at Sommierés looking worse for wear. After some research we discovered the best solution was to clean and bleach but not paint.

Once the property was power washed it was sprayed in a bleach/water solution to really attack the moss on the render, this is a common way of dealing with this problem in France.

The pool house did not fit in with the rest of the house, particularly as it was a different colour. So it was caulked and filled ready for painting.
