We are a family run business with over 20 years experience in interior design, decoration and soft furnishings. We decided to embark on our own journey of creating a company where we could combine all of our creative skills with our favoured interests; vintage furniture, fabrics and specialist painting.

At Blues & Hues, all of our commissions are carefully prepared and painted to the highest standard, then waxed or varnished for the ultimate finish. Distressing is optional; if you don’t like the shabby chic look, you can have your pieces just painted if preferred. This can also include the reupholstering of seat covers and changing of handles for that extra sparkle!

We are not a mass producing factory, all of our items are painted by hand or spray painted and finished in our workshop.

Retro Chair Furniture

We offer a range of painting techniques and finishes, including decoupage and stencilling for a French inspired look, or a more distressed finish for an aged appearance, and can implement many styles from vintage and retro, to limed country farmhouse, depending on the look required and the versatility of the piece itself. For all your painting requirements, please get in touch!

The paints we use are of the highest quality, and mostly work with eggshell or chalk paint depending on the finish and budget you have. These range from Farrow & Ball and Annie Sloan to Laura Ashley and Craig & Rose. Please click on links above to view their colour charts.


In addition to furniture painting, we can also take on decorative items and homeware commissions. We take great pride in giving them a fresh new look and transforming them into contemporary pieces! To get an idea of these types of projects, please take a peak at our online shop! We also undertake our own commissions from purchasing furniture from all over the country, to upcycle and bring back into the 21st century!

Having worked for many years as designers, we are able to work closely with all clients, ensuring projects run smoothly and to the best of our ability. Every client has their own idea of what they want, so we are more than happy to work to your individual brief, including help selecting colour and style to suit current room schemes if required. Please contact us to discuss a consultation fee.

Collection and delivery is on quotation, dependent on size and location. Alternatively, you can collect and deliver yourself, or on occasion we can work on site depending on the specification. This option is preferable for larger items that are difficult to move!

On contact, please provide photos of the items to commission, along with sizes and the finish you require. If you would like collection & delivery, please also state your location.

Just to say a very big thank you. For a great job you have done on my dear Nans & Aunties Dressing Table. Our four grandaughters I’m sure will love it. Very best regards

I am more than delighted with the bedroom furniture I had painted at Blues & Hues, it has brought new life to a dull room. They were able to offer good advice on colour and style and were able to show me examples of work already undertaken. I Have recommended to friends.

Thank you for doing our dressing table, my grandaughter loved it, so do all her friends. The colours are very pretty, a real shabby chic paint effect and great finish! Hope to get her a pretty wardrobe to match, so will keep in touch! Thanks again.

Delighted with the furniture I had painted at Blues & Hues. The oak table top was well preserved and the legs and chairs beautifully painted and finished. They are a beautiful addition to my busy family dining room.

My wife and I were extremely pleased with our Farmhouse Table & Chairs. The oak table had been restored and finished to a high standard whilst maintaining its original character. The Shabby Chic effect looks perfect in our new country style kitchen. Many thanks.

I am very pleased with my beautifully painted dressing table. The finish is very smooth and the soft distressing highlights it's features. The Farrow and Ball paint is a lovely heritage shade of white, which blends in with any colour decor. Delighted all round!

Thank you so much for the wonderful job you did on our lounge furniture, you have given it a new lease of life. The colour choice and finish was 'spot on' and it has already had many admirers. The work was done in a very efficient manner, and I will be recommending your services to others.

I had my sideboard painted at Blues and Hues! It is absolutely perfect and no one passes it without a compliment. It is beautifully painted and finished and it was at a very fair price! I found communication with the company to be very responsive and helpful. Overall I couldn't have been happier and will definitely be back!
