- The term decorative painting has a different meaning here in the States than it does almost everywhere else in the world, but is that good? Here in the Philadelphia, PA area, it seems to describe the “toile” painter which, as pretty as it is, is not what we are. In Europe the term describes an artisan: “One who strives to imitate nature in replicating her patterns, grains, marbles, and stones by the means of marbling and graining; A muralist painter and trompe l’oeil artist; A gilder; A color specialist; And more.”
- At Colkett Painting, this is what our company does, and we love it! It has been our pleasure to offer the best faux finishes, wall murals, gilding and more to a commercial or residential interior in the Bucks County, Montgomery County, Delaware County, and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania areas, as well as NJ
- With training but the best in the field, their passion has been passed on to every painter and muralist at our company. Creating wall murals that reproduce the feathered grain of a walnut tree, the breche pattern of Arabasco marble, the perspective of a door opening into a sunny garden scene, the clouds, or to gild a surface in 23k gold and burnish it to a brilliant sheen on your residential walls, these have been my rewards. If you have a minute to look at the photos of wall murals, faux finish and marbling work completed by my very talented collection of artists and artisans and myself, professionals all, I hope you can see the passion that you yearn for in your painter.
