Campbell Smith & Co have created and restored fine interiors since 1873. Our decorators are highly skilled in historic decorative finishes such as distempers, flat oil paints and limewash, gilding, stencilling, trompe l’oeil, mural, marbling and graining techniques as well as the restoration of historic interior fabrics. Through our in-house experience, the National Collection for Historic Decoration, and our alliance with Crick Smith University of Lincoln, we undertake thorough analysis, tests and detailed reports on historic decorative finishes. Using this research we can develop new schemes or preserve existing schemes whilst ensuring that any new finishes are fully reversible.
