Traditional Decoration

Decoration is not only a visual and aesthetic consideration.  Traditional finishes including lime wash and distemper were often practical solutions to sanitation and purposeful indicators of problems like damp in solid or timber construction.

Magdalen Lime Wash Walls East

Traditional finishes including internal and external lime wash, distemper and lead paints are all decorative finishes that Inspire Conservation can supply and apply on your project.  Applications like lime wash require specific preparation and tendering processes which are different to modern painted finishes.  The use of these delicate materials can sometimes be difficult to apply and can fail easily if not applied and maintained properly.

We have completed many projects including stone and brick wall lime wash application both internal and external in white lime washes, replication of coloured internal lime washing, uncovering original lime wash schemes and reinstating them, lead paint application to decorative schemes, distemper and chalk paints for internal schemes.
