Dear Simon

I am writing to offer our sincere thanks for the fantastic work you’ve recently carried out at Bristol Museum & Art Gallery. As part of our art gallery refurbishment programme, we decided to return Gallery 4 to its original splendour.  A major element of this work was having a wood grained paint effect applied to the plain painted skirting, to match the impressive polished natural walnut of the gallery's entrance doors and surrounds.  It was with great concern that we then discovered the artist who had carried out similar work for us over very many years had since retired.

On meeting you, I was immediately impressed by your enthusiasm and sincerity.  The skill and attention to detail you have since displayed to produce the stunning results we are now enjoying, have proved you were the perfect choice for this work.  The quality of your work has drawn many compliments from museum staff, who are very well qualified to recognise quality when they see it. You can rest assured whenever we are looking for paint effects at any of our museum sites, your name will be at the very top of our list. Keep up the great work and I'm looking forward to having the pleasure of working with you again in the future.

Best regards
Ian Holt”

Simon has done a brilliant job, i am very happy with the service i have received and the work completed looks great, good painters and decorators in Bristol are hard to come by i would definitely recommend Simon Blandini.”

This job was executed with exemplary professionalism, attention to detail and to schedule. The price was reasonable and in fact as a result we have asked Mr Blandini to quote for additional work in our home. I would also like to note that the work was undertaken with a smile by a gentleman, something difficult to anticipate or request ... but my partner and I agree makes all the difference.”

We were looking for a furniture painter and hired Simon. He recently painted all our furniture in the rooms during our refurbishment, we found him to be reliable and trustworthy and we are very pleased with the results.

I have no hesitation in recommending him.”

We have extensive hand-painted flooring throughout the house and we asked Simon to come in and repair the kitchen area that had become particularly faded. The result was so brilliant that we're now thinking of asking Simon to come back and repaint the rest of the flooring in the house.”

I have employed Simon Blandini Interiors on several occasions for a commercial painting and decorating project for a central Bath interiors shop. Simon was reliable and carried out the job with utmost professionalism. He was very easy to deal his work was of a high standard. ”

Blakes Interiors, Bath

Simon carried out an extensive redecoration of our Bath house which involved removing layers and layers of paint from over the years to a full repainting of the complete interior of the house from walls, sash windows to doors, staircases and every possible surface. Simon and his team carried out this whole project with incredible professionalism and attention to detail, especially on some of the period features of the house, from cornicing to wedding doors and fireplaces. Simon is clearly passionate about his trade, offers genuine and honest advice and was just as proud and concerned for a successful result as we were.  Simon also recommended some great other tradesmen who finished off the house to a very high standard, all at a reasonable cost.   Simon’s talent lies in his knowledge of specialist finishes but this also means for other work he is equally as detailed and qualified. It has been a long project but the results speak for themselves and Simon’s knowledge and time have been a great investment for our house. The quality of the finish and colour scheme are outstanding.  I would not hesitate in recommending Simon.”
