Artistic and Decorative Painting Services for Historic Buildings

One of the most highly requested services of historical restoration contractors is artistic decorative painting. At Spectra Company, this service is available for any project. Whether the surface is an interior wall, a ceiling, a floor or an exterior, some of the techniques we can expertly provide include:

Gilding -
Wood and plaster accents that require gilding can receive metallic leaf treatment, including gold leaf or silver leaf. Their original, opulent appearance can be restored with our professional gilding services.
Aging -
With a carefully chosen color wash, newly restored walls can be aged to appear nearly identical to the original. After we restore your walls, we can apply a re-creation of the original color, or a new color of your choice.
Faux bois -
Materials such as concrete, mortar and grout can be treated to adopt a wood and wood grained appearance.
Stone finishes -
Concrete surfaces can be made to look like polished, satin, or honed stone surfaces.
Ornamental finishes -
Concrete and plaster accents that have worn with time can be restored to retain or regain their original, ornamental appearance.
Trompe L’ Oeil -
Paintings and architectural elements can be made to appear three dimensional.

Whatever the needs of the project, our historical restoration team can work together to make it happen. Some of our most accomplished sites include:

  • The Pantages Theater, Hollywood
  • Villa Riviera, Long Beach
  • Muckenthaler Cultural Center, Fullerton
  • Frank Lloyd Wright Ennis House, Hollywood
  • The Hollywood Palladium
  • Village Fox Theater, Westwood
