We were commissioned by interior designers to create five different feature walls in this luxury three-bedroom two-bathroom new-build Mount Anvil development in Battersea, South West London for its new international owners.
Creating feature walls using paint naturally requires skill and experience but to also install decorative wall mouldings demanded an extra level of skill, experience and attention to detail which very few painters and decorators have – it is for this very reason why the interior designers trust Phantom – Vauxhall Painters and Decorators to deliver time and time again.
When our Battersea painter first arrived at this luxury Vauxhall apartment it was rather bland, all ceilings, walls and woodwork were just white. As well as panoramic views across Vauxhall from the sixth floor, this apartment could equally excite train spotters alike, with trains passing to/from London Waterloo.
Even though the quality of this 41-storey Mount Anvil skyscraper was to a very high standard, it lacked individual personality, but not for long. Both the interior designer, London home stager and of course professional Vauxhall painters and decorators, we added much personality to this luxury apartment.
On arrival, the Dulux Perfectly Taupe hallway not only complements the dark grey natural floorcovering, it also creates a subtle distinction between the entrance and the all white corridor to adjoining rooms.
In the living room, the Chic Shadow, although the smallest of feature walls, it makes the greatest difference. It creates contrast with the wood acoustic panels while separating the hallway wall by painting the short wall overhang sharply. This had similar effect in the Master Bedroom where we applied Perfectly Taupe next to the acoustic panel and again, sharp lines across the wall overhang, adding a bit of quirkiness to a new building.
The decorative wall panels in the other two bedrooms adds some period charm and character to a very modern building. The painting of the wood panel mouldings in an eggshell finish adds further character by introducing a little sheen to a rather matt finish wall. This effectively draws the wood moulding out rather than blending into the wall, defeating the purpose of a feature wall.
