A new development – Maggie Davis
An exciting new development is that Brian’s wife, Maggie Davis, has recently joined the business and they are now offering a range of new services to their customers that includes interior design, colour consulting and simply getting the details right.
If you want more than just the traditional painting services, Maggie is more than happy to discuss what other services they have to offer.
As a town planner for 35 years, she has extensive experience with how buildings sit within the built environment. Her experience includes understanding how to get the details right for the exterior of buildings, particularly heritage homes, as well as a vast knowledge of how the interior of buildings need to be designed for practical as well as aesthetic reasons.
The new services offered by Maggie Davis include interior and exterior decoration advice to homeowners as well as colour consulting.
Over many years, a number of period homes have had original features removed, whether it be replacement of windows, fretwork, front fences or even original guttering. Getting the details right when renovating the exterior of these period homes is important in bringing them back to their former glory. In some older homes additional appropriate decoration can also enhance the exterior and interior of the building.
Maggie Davis is able to provide advice as to how to get these details right to ensure they are consistent with the period and style of the home being renovated. In addition, having Brian Carroll’s Painting Service update your home with new paint or wallpaper is often only the first step in creating a new updated environment in your home.
This can be further enhanced with a consultation with Maggie Davis for any interior decoration advice whether it be about new flooring, window furnishings, furniture selection, interior space planning or decluttering and arrangement of existing furniture. Maggie is also available to provide advice for home styling if you are wanting to sell your home.
These complimentary services will save you time and worry about getting the details right.
Wallpaper is a very popular way to add color, texture and design to residential homes and has been making a comeback in recent years. Customising a room with wallpaper or just adding a feature wall of wallpaper can add individuality and character to a space.
Brian Carroll is one of the few painters around that has extensive experience in hanging wallpaper and he is meticulous in ensuring a professional outcome for the job. In addition, Maggie Davis is now available to help the homeowner choose an appropriate design and the best location in a room to place the wallpaper for maximum impact.
One of the best features of wallpaper for those who initially installed it, was the reliability of the wallpaper glue. Unfortunately, the quality of wallpaper glue makes removing wallpaper very hard. Brian Carroll’s Painting has years of experience in wallpaper and can help you get that old or ugly wallpaper off your walls.
Different glues, different types of paper – we’re prepared for any eventuality. Once we’re prepared, we’ll remove the wallpaper as quickly and cleanly as possible, preparing your walls to receive whatever paint or new wallpaper you want.
