Devlin in Design created the interior finishes for Studio Grill Restaurant, Northern Ireland. Working alongside interior designer Ken Grey, our team of specialist decorators and sculptors created a 1920’s cinema inspired and themed restaurant for Stevie Hill, owner of the Revolutionary Burger group of restaurants. This unique project consisted of creating all internal distressed plaster and painted finshes, with faux rust ceilings and distressed wooden panels. The decorative cornice and mouldings where treated with a highly aged faux finish revealing glimpses of antique gilding, reflective of the 1920’s style cinemas and theatres.

19th Century Wood Grained & Gilded Panels

This is the next stage of an on going restoration contract involving 12 wood grained and gilded panels in the main corridor of a private residence in London, England.

Our team of decorative painters and specialist decorators take great care when restoring and recreating historical grains. This panel has been grained in Walnut and Mahogany, and gilded in 23.5ct gold leaf.
