Painting - Walls, Ceilings & Woodwork


We have many years of experience using a variety of paints and products. We can offer you advice on the best paint or product to use for the job and to get the look that you what to achieve. Paint is a quick and relatively cost effective way of changing a room and giving it the WOW factor!

Wallpapering & Printed Murals


We are skilled in hanging many different types of wallpaper and really enjoy this part of my job. We can hang lining paper on older properties or to cover cracked and crazed plastered walls to help achieve a fresh new finish. Wallpaper is a way of creating a personal stamp to your room, matching paint to the colours of the paper is another way of creating an individual look!

About Hart Decor

My name is Ian Hartgrove (owner of Hart Decor) and I was born and bred in Northampton and I still live in Duston, Northampton with my family.

I left school and went straight into a Painting and Decorating apprenticeship. While I was completing my college course, I was working on new building sites and really learned the trade. Once qualified, I continued on the building sites for about ten years, moving to various sites in Northampton, Leicester, Peterborough, Milton Keynes, Brackley, Bicester to name a few and was decorating the show houses as well as the newly built homes.

Over the years, I have gradually picked up more and more domestic work and have worked in various styles of houses. I have completed work in Grade 2 listed buildings, large Manor houses across the Anglia region, plush apartments and town houses in Mayfair, I was involved in the refurbishment/decoration of the Brampton Halt public house and restaurant. I have decorated boxes at Twickenham Rugby Ground for large corporate businesses and decorated several rooms/areas at The O2 (Millennium Dome) in London for big events. I have also spent a lot of time in homes in and around Northampton, decorating various rooms in my customers homes. This is the type of work I really enjoy as I can see how pleased and excited they are with their finished rooms.

I look forward to working with you soon

I wish to thank Hart Decor for a very professional and superb job on my hall, stairs and landing, with the minimum amount of mess I might add.
