You don't have to own an older property in order to create a period style or bring some timeless elegance to your home.


Many original plaster moulds are still widely used today to help create that period look. They can help enhance & beautify any room in today's modern homes, as well as restoring or adding to older properties.

This can be a worthwhile addition to your home & value of your property.

Period Style:

Period colours are warm & timeless, representing elegance & refinement.

Choose authentic shades of flat matt emulsions on walls & eggshell finishes on interior wood surfaces.

Make the most of architectural features, such as cornice, ceiling roses etc, to contrast with wall & ceiling colours. Use of eggshell paint on these will reflect more light & highlight detail.

Use of 'decorative paint effects' is worth considering, even if only to age objects artificially!

Lighting plays an important role! Think about using wall lights, dimmer switches & candlelight to create an authentic mood.

Make sure that your soft-furnishings & curtains reflect the period you are seeking.

Furnishing with antiques to complete the look, need not be expensive! Try secondhand shops, car boot sales & auctions.
