Decorating in London

South West London is where Paint the Town Green began. Founder Phil Robinson opened our showroom in Wandsworth three years ago as a base for the company and so clients could drop in for consultations and see our paint range.

There really isn’t anywhere in central and Greater London we don’t work on decorating projects. We are found throughout the capital, working on an array of properties. Our vans tends to be seen tootling through places like Chelsea, Marylebone, Notting Hill, Hampstead, Highgate, Islington, Kensington, Fulham, Barnes, Battersea, Chiswick, Putney, Clapham, Richmond, Wimbledon, Dulwich and of course Wandsworth.

From residential to commercial to heritage properties, we work on all aspects of decorating, whether that be interior, exterior, wallpaper-hanging or decorating kitchens. As a result we know the capital’s architecture very well and understand all the issues that crop up with working on both period and modern buildings.

For example, many London Victorian properties have lathe and plaster walls, which are often lined. However, not everyone wants to strip walls and risk ripping the plaster from the timber or bringing the ceiling down.

Our highly-skilled decorators know how to handle the various techniques involved in getting a smooth finish, such as lining, feathering, skimming and sanding. Phil says that given the amount of times we say, “The key is in the preparation”, it should be Paint the Town Green’s official mantra but it’s true.

Another typically-London issue is the repair of damaged cornicing. Many’s the time the PTTG team has salvaged what cornicing remains intact and filled in the gaps with new mouldings to reinstate these original period features. By the time it’s finished, you’d never know there had previously been sections missing!

Paint the Town Green are proud to have decorated some of the city’s most prestigious building including the Blue Bar at the Berkley Hotel, the spa and shop at Conran’s BlueBird, Marc Jacobs’ Mayfair store and the Damian Hirst Gallery. However we are just at home painting a one-bedroom flat in Wandsworth.
