About Huning Decorations

Huning Decorations is a company specialising in recreating and restoring historic painted decoration. We are experts in colour mixing and work with both traditional paints and modern materials. Our work has included projects for English Heritage and the National Trust as well as in many churches and private houses around the country.
The company is run by Saskia Huning, the daughter of the founders of the company, Wilm and Joy Huning. The company has a long history and this has allowed the knowledge and use of traditional paints to be carried on in the work that we do today. Saskia has been the Honorary Secretary of the Traditional Paint Forum for the last seven years.
We have worked on a number of projects where we have recreated traditional paint effects which have been found through the use of historic paint analysis. Where a traditional recipe has to be developed we work in our studios to formulate the correct ingredients and working methods.
Huning Decorations also has a strong background in creative design and works on contemporary murals and artworks for use in modern homes and spaces.
We use the following techniques in our work: graining, marbling, gilding, stencilling, murals, trompe l’oeil, glaze effects and decorative painting.
We are happy to recreate existing schemes using traditional materials or finishes and we are able to hand mix colours to match on a small or large scale. Our own creative works includes mural painting as well as work with stencils and colour schemes.
We have a strong interest in the materials that we use and work in our studios to experiment with new and traditional materials to present the greatest number of options to clients when the most appropriate materials need to be selected for a project.
We have offices in Bath and London.
