“Underneath all I design lies the belief that beauty and colour are a positive force” Barry
First things first:
We come and meet you and discuss your project, timescale and budget and chat to you about what will make your project truly your own. We advise you on how we can help and what it might cost you.
We can then sketch out and present our ideas, with either hand-drawn or digital images and mood boards, providing colour and fabric samples.
You can then decide whether to take the project over yourself, have us involved along the way as consultants, or ask us to project manage your work from start to finish.
Checking and finishing:
At whatever level of engagement, we keep in touch with you to make sure your project is going well and you are happy. We also like to provide the final finishing and styling for projects we have been involved in from the outset – often the most important part of the project – to make sure you have the ‘look’ that was conceived at the outset.
We also offer a professional furniture painting service, using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, that transforms and updates the simplest to most ornate pieces. Our clients can choose from a range of finishes, from flat waxed, to distressed and aged or we can layer colours for a more creative result. We are also skilled in stencilling, gilding, crackle-glazing and decoupage.
Sourcing and photography:
We often work with designers, magazines, photographers and companies who like to use our services for product sourcing, styling or preparing backdrops for large or small film budgets. From painting crates, to buying fruit and decorating fabrics we can help you to find your style and put your ideas together.
At Marmalade House we facilitate and work on locations shoots for film, TV and stills. We have a wide-range of corporate clients who use our services. Please contact us directly for more information if you are interested in this service.
