Ceiling paintings may become damaged or discoloured over time, most often from contamination such as fireplace smoke and nicotine or an escape of water in the structure of the building. Our trained team is able to professionally and sensitively restore historic and modern painted ceilings, as well as decorative features such as plaster relief and gold leaf application.
As well as work with private clients, we have played a key role in preserving artworks and items of cultural value to the public, including projects completed for the US ambassador’s residence, the Church of England, and conservation work funded by the Historic Houses Foundation.
Recent projects include the restoration of an 18th century Robert Adam ceiling for Crockfords Casino in Mayfair, the rescue of a 19th century mural at Westonbirt House following an escape of water and stain removal on a fresco in a historic townhouse.
Professional documentation can be provided by our trained conservators, including scientific analysis of artworks. This can be helpful in compiling historic records, it may also provide further insight into their unique historical composition.

Conservation treatments and assessments can be provided on site. Our team is experienced in having a swift response to disasters when high value and culturally important interiors are at risk, whether this is through private arrangement or with the liaison of an insurance firm.
You don’t really own old family paintings, you are merely a custodian, so having them restored can be a nerve-racking experience. That why I went with an expert team I could trust to restore a painting that is very dear to my heart. The restoration is superb and my family will continue to enjoy the results for generations to come.
I really appreciate the restoration and framing and framing you did for me. The result is very pleasing and I am sure that it will look terrific in the Royal Dragoon Guards Museum in York.
