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.
