A client’s story: painting and decorating a two-bedroom weekend apartment in Wapping, London

Jazzing up a weekend get-away in the big city with a luxe wallpaper and fresh paint!

Transforming a pied-a-terre in Wapping, London with painting and wallpapering

Lea and Jonathan live in a beautiful family house in the countryside but enjoy coming  down to London for the odd weekend to catch up with friends or see the latest West End shows.  As much as they enjoy their weekends staying at their two bedroom pied-a-terre in Wapping, they found that they were not quite as excited about coming down to the flat as they should have been and decided that repainting and redecorating would give the place a new lease of life..

“We didn’t want to do a major renovation as the flat was in good condition when we bought it and it still looks nice and trendy, but we did want to put our stamp on the place. We decided to paint and redecorate and searched online for painters and decorators who could do it before our next visit to London.” 

The brief: painting and decorating to freshen up this beautiful apartment

The owners bought their London flat a while ago but wanted some painting and decorating done to add a bit of freshness, colour and excitement. The brief given to our painters and decorators was to repaint of all the walls, ceilings and woodwork throughout the flat, and to put up a brand new luxe wallpaper in the master bedroom. This damask patterned piece adds a boutique hotel feel and quite a bit of romance to the bedroom!

“We wanted some craziness and fun in our London pad! Our friends might think we’re bonkers to put up wallpaper with a busy pattern as well as a strong, dark colour but we love it – especially how it looks with the wall lights. Even our furniture looks completely different and new against this contrasting backdrop. Coming down to London is much more fun than before, all thanks to the outstanding painting and decorating services delivered by The Good Painter.” 

A few questions for the client

What was the primary challenge during the painting and decorating process?

The main focus was the wallpaper in the master bedroom – we had splashed out on it a little, so it was essential for us that the final result delivered professionally. The Good Painter made sure that the joints were smooth  and that the pattern was lined up perfectly. It was great to work with a company with so much painting and decorating experience so that  they could talk us through the process and we didn’t have to worry about how it would turn out.

What is your advice to anyone planning a painting and decorating project?

Don’t let your friends tell you how to decorate your home! Everyone we know warned us against the feature wall in the master bedroom, but we held our ground. Now that the painting and decorating is completed it looks incredible and all our relatives and friends who have seen it are jealous. We wouldn’t have been brave enough to do it in our family home where we sleep every day, but we like it so much that we’re now considering painting and decorating  there as well. So there you go!

What did you enjoy most during the process?

I really enjoyed the whole process! Choosing the paint and the wallpaper is probably the most creative part, but I also loved the excitement of seeing the place transformed. We asked The Good Painter team to carry out the painting and decorating work during the week while we were away, but  they sent us sneak peek pictures and a video when they finished the painting and decorating. I remember I could hardly wait to come down to London that weekend to see the finished result, which looks brilliant. Overall, the painting and decorating was so worth it and we love spending time at our London flat!
