Other colours used were Skimming Stone 241, Elephant’s Breath 229, Inchyra Blue 289 and Cornforth White 228.

Harleyford Lodge Refurbishment Case Study

Refurbishment of a Lodge on the Harleyford Estate, Marlow

A beautiful Scandinavian lodge/cabin set on the private Harleyford Estate in Marlow, Buckinghamshire.

Project Requirements

A full refurbishment of the lodge was required including painting and decorating, new carpets, new furniture required and installed and gates made for the decking area.

Solution Implemented

We used Johnstones durable matt which was colour matched to Ammonite a Farrow and Ball colour, we also used the same colour on the woodwork in Eggshell.  We used our carpenter to make new timber gates to match in with the rest of the decking area. Our flooring/carpeting expert recommended the best type of flooring throughout.  We also helped out with the style of furniture and furnishings.

Challenges Overcome

The client wanted to achieve a light, airy look to the lodge at all times of the day.  As the light fell in many different angles due to the shape and structure of the building this made some colours look completely different at certain times of the day.  To help the client chose this perfect paint colour, we provided test pots in the chosen colour but in various tones and painted several areas so the client could make their final choice.

Results

We were extremely pleased with the final result. On this page, you will find some imagery relating to works completed on the project.

Adam Continuity – Cladding Case Study

Google Testimonial

“ABK have just completed a large painting and decorating and building work project at our hotel, Chequers Inn near Wooburn Green.  I found all the workers to be extremely reliable and friendly, the effort that was taken to ensure all working areas were left clean and tidy (which included Ground Floor, First Floor, Bar, Reception and Toilets) was much appreciated as this helped us to continue our business with minimal disruption. We are pleased with the standard of work, advice on paint types and colours to achieve the overall finish and we are delighted with the hotel’s new image. I would highly recommend ABK for any painting and decorating and building works”.
