So writes the Dean of Westminster, the Very Reverend Dr John Hall in his introduction to the catalogue of my exhibition now showing in Westminster Abbey. As I looked around the display in the evening light, just minutes before the opening ceremony with the works all finished, installed and lit in this magnificent setting, the achievement of the collection began to dawn on me. I had never seen all these paintings together before, a broad display of complex watercolours inspired by a monumental subject. The exhibition is on until 16th May and I am thrilled that all these paintings have been acquired by the Abbey Collection and will therefore remain as a record of the Abbey in history.
Originally the walls of the Abbey would have been whitened and coloured in red lines with rosettes. A fragment of this design was seen in the early 20th century, hidden behind a blocked recess at the end of the wall passage in St Nicholas's chapel.
A fresh coat of paint can make the inside and outside of your home look like new. But unless it’s done right, a paint job can fade, chip, crack and peel long before you’ve gotten your money’s worth.
Okay, so you’ve come this far and are now understanding the costs involved when painting yourself vs finding a pro.
Painting trim allows for a more professional and cheaper way to paint vs doing the walls and trim separately. Trim painting costs are determined by measuring linear footage and is dependent on the amount of trim and the size of the room. The cost per linear foot is $2.05 – $3.30 to paint the trim in a house.

The prep work is meticulous, they carefully protect surfaces not meant to be painted, including my beautiful Cordyline plants that touch the wall. They even taped plastic over my cement floor backyard. The quality of the work is great, I don't see any flaws in the paint job, and the paint is quick drying with no overwhelming paint smell. They fixed any minor flaws with the surfaces, applying patches and re-stuccoing as needed. My house looks new again!
There are some other wall paintings within the Abbey or its precincts which cannot normally be seen by the public. The white hart badge of Richard II is painted on a partition in the Muniment Room. Some rare mid to late 16th century black and white arabesque paintings and a painting on plaster from the reign of Elizabeth I are in private offices.
Pricing wise, they are very competitive. What impressed me was they didn't require an upfront deposit, instead they ask for 50% of the estimate after they are 50% complete, and the balance at the end of the job. That shows confidence in their workmanship.
Joe is a very nice guy, but he overpromised, overcharged, and seriously underdelivered. He was the most expensive option, but I figured he would do a good job. When he came out to the house, he said he would fix some issues with the walls and a previous paint job... westminster-house-painting-two-colors westminster-co-house-painting-humidity westminster-house-painting-combination Close Project westminster-house-painting-light-color
