Colour has a big impact on a building and sometimes all it needs is some careful thought, care and attention.
We are not limited to one paint manufacturer and can advise you on the best colour scheme across the whole exterior to make the most of your homes features, from a jolly good paint job to putting together a pallet of materials that work in harmony with each other.

Alexandra Hull - MD
“Like most people I want to change the world!
I believe the environment we live in is important. Whether we are aware of it or not, it affects how we feel and influences our lives, our families, our friends and our finances. Owning a home requires huge personal effort and often sacrifice, so it is natural that we would want it to be a home of beauty, not a house of horrors.
We have been remodeling houses as a family and as a business my whole life and we want to share our experience and vision with people and help them make the most of their principle asset.
Having spent nearly 20 years undertaking large-scale refurbishments, we want to reach out to more people, with budgets big and small. Working alongside other design professionals, we can focus and advise on the exterior design elements which really matter and reduce the cost and exclusivity of making the world a more beautiful place to live.”
