Hand-painted Walls & Cupboards
We are so excited to finally be able to offer our customers a new bespoke painting service for your walls and furniture, all designed in-house at deVOL by our resident decorative artist, Rosie.
deVOL is always on the move, it’s what makes the company so dynamic and exciting, it’s not always a conscious decision, it often just happens. If you overthink and plan too much it can seem a little forced, but here at deVOL it’s all a bit more spontaneous. We see someone who makes great pots so we open a ceramics studio, or we meet a lovely passionate artist who ends up painting beautiful things on the walls of our showrooms and the inside of our cupboards - not planned, just sounds fun so let’s give it a go! Of course it involves a lot of hard work and dedication to make it all happen but it's new and exciting and with so many talented designers and makers here it's bound to result in something special.
Rosie is our decorative artist and painter of walls. She's spent the last year working with us to refine a style of painting inspired by traditional chinoiserie and trompe l'oeil but with a unique deVOL take on these classic decorative art forms. So far we've decorated the duck-egg blue walls of our Millhouse 'drawing room' with ghostly watercolour flowers on spindly stems and our Millhouse dining room with delicate hand-painted branches of cow parsley and creamy hydrangea blooms. These blousy blooms add such a glamorous and special feel to this room, they create a certain magic that just doesn't happen with wallpaper. It's such a bespoke and unique way to adorn your homes, we just love it and hope you do too as this service is now available to all our customers.
And if you like the look of hand-painted chinoiserie but would prefer something on a smaller canvas, we can offer the same service for the insides of our cupboards too! Our elegant Curiosity Cupboards are especially well suited for Rosie's paintings, we have some on show in our Classic Millhouse Kitchen with a fantastic folk-art inspired yellow interior. Flowers on walls or in cupboards, just a suggestion of colour that will transform the look of your kitchen in a beautifully subtle way. How special to have something completely unique and personal made for you, a true one of a kind. If you'd like to have a closer look at these beautiful murals please do come and see us at Cotes Mill, we'd love to make you a cup of tea and show you around.
