We make it our business to learn and understand the unique story of your home or building to better enable us to restore and uplift the original beauty of the space. We have over thirty years of experience which ensures the safest and highest standard of repair and renovation work is completed for your special project.

Our English background and continual upskilling, in-line with those strict standards, brings mastery to a huge scope of conservation and historic services across multiple eras.


We have been fortunate to work with and share our experience with the Art Gallery of NSW on numerous projects over the years, including providing advice on specialist finishes and materials for their heritage exhibitions.
We’d love to know your home or heritage property’s history to help you preserve and express it through decoration too.
With skills that have been passed down through master English craftsmen, and over thirty years of experience working in the field of heritage and restoration, both in Australia and in the United Kingdom, we are the perfect people to help you keep that heritage preserved and protected.


Another way we keep the beauty of heritage alive is through our iron lace works. This lovely detailed piece of history is an iconic Sydney iconic sight, especially across the old heritage suburbs such as Paddington, Surry Hills or Newtown. These decorative finishes are all part of the homes’ facades today, but once they succumb to heavy rust, they are no longer repairable and become an eyesore. These intricate heritage features deserve and require a delicate, precise workmanship to help preserve them into the future We are the experts that know how to keep this history alive and get great joy from helping you do just that.

Other high profile buildings Artistic Decor have worked on
include the Art Gallery of NSW and numerous Sydney Hospitals.

After initial disappointment on the quality of the overall painting of our renovations 3 years ago, I found Sam from @artisticdecor.nsw by chance. He turned my kitchen & the rest of our home into my dream. The walls & ceilings have more than just primer now. They have character, warmth, & protection. Our kitchen is just wow, and there is a wanting to actually use it! I can't recommend you enough. Sam, you are professional, true to your word, & exemplary of your work. You & your team were on time every day, cleaned up each day after yourselves & made sure the family could move around by providing me with an update of progress each day. Thank you, Sam & the team, at Artistic Decor!

Sandra Cabrelle

I am so impressed with the workmanship of artistic-decor. They painted and restored the interior of my apartment, especially the Art Deco cornices. They brought them back to life, to the beautiful condition they would have been many years ago.
I was quite amazed it was even possible. A beautiful job performed by the artistic-decor team.
Sam is very knowledgeable and experienced in his line of work. Honest, reliable and hardworking.
I can’t sing their praises enough, I would recommend them every time. They even cleaned up after themselves, the place was spotless.

Eva Bloom

Sam from Artistic Decor did a fabulous job painting our 20-year-old timber kitchen. The quality is amazing, it looks like brand new cabinetry! Sam’s attention to detail is excellent he has very high standards. He also made the whole experience from a customer perspective very smooth and he was great to deal with as I was very indecisive with the colour but Sam had some great ideas and we were really happy in the end. Highly recommend.

Jo Cahill

One of the saddest things about the modern world is that a lot of companies have lost that personal touch, the WOW factor, the pride in their work and their business - but not Artistic Decor! They truly stand out from the rest !!!
It was SO refreshing to meet Sam and have him do some work for us. We were so impressed by the absolute immaculate attention to the finest of details. He was always on time, kept communications open and when on site was a true professional.
Our transformation was one of true brilliance. Our kitchen now looks like a show home, a chef's kitchen and is a true statement piece! I would have no hesitation in recommending Artistic Decor
