Painting and Decorating by Artisan
Artisan Painting & Decorating is a professional decorating service providing high-quality paint finishes, wallpapering, gilding and other specialist techniques.
We operate throughout the UK with clients ranging from private individuals to main building contractors. So, whether you have a commercial or residential property, contemporary or heritage, our team of decorators can deliver the service and solutions you need.
The company is headed by Andrew Bradley, MSc, who has 38 years of painting and decorating experience and a master’s degree in Historic Building Conservation. He has worked on high-profile projects including The British Museum, The Royal Academy of Arts, and The Savoy and Dorchester Hotels, as well as private residential properties.
Andrew is very much hands-on, liaising with clients and overseeing a skilled team of decorators working across multiple projects. He is ably assisted by Artisan’s sales and marketing, and project management teams to ensure our clients always receive the support they need.
Artisan painting and decorating services are available to clients throughout the British Isles. We typically gravitate towards London and the surrounding counties but have decorated buildings all over the UK. More information about the types of buildings we decorate is available on the Clients Page.
Decorating your interior is a personal expression of style and function and an opportunity to update colours and materials in keeping with current trends and styles.
We can restore and decorate most surfaces inside your property, including the below.
Doors and Windows
Plaster (modern and traditional)
We can restore and repaint building exteriors in addition to decorating interior spaces. Our team has vast experience working with different mediums from period limewash to modern acrylic or mineral paints. As with interior decorating, the key to a long-lasting finish is good surface preparation and it is essential to apply the correct materials and methods for a long-lasting finish.

How we work
Whether working in collaboration with Principal Contractors, Architects, Interior Designers or Private Clients we will evaluate your requirements, answer any questions, and suggest solutions suitable to your building or budget. If a site visit is required, a date can be arranged for Andrew Bradley to attend. Here he can discuss colours, finishes and the most appropriate materials for your property. We work with industry leading suppliers and can assist in the selection of the best materials for your project.
Once the scope of work is established, we will formulate an estimate and return this to you with an indication of lead time. Before you know it work will be under way and you can soon be enjoying a clean fresh new look to your property!
We’d be delighted to add you to our list of satisfied customers. For more information or to discuss your painting and decorating project, please contact us.
“I have worked closely with Andrew and can confirm his demonstrable and comprehensive knowledge and understanding of historic building remedial work; not only in identifying remedial solutions for a variety of structures but also in the planning and organisation of the works, both in terms of material and labour sourcing.”

“We worked with Mr Andrew Bradley on the repairs to the Swiss Church for all aspects to the Victorian listed building. We were impressed with his knowledge and interest in the project both at philosophical level and at detail level, and the success of the repair project would appear to be largely down to his interest and concern to achieve an historically appropriate solution working with and within set professional parameters.”
Tony R., Bury St Edmunds
