A house in Kensington, London – features one of our favourite clients. A New York lady with the most extraordinary style, a journalist turned interior designer, speculating in antiques and a wife and mother. Hip Hut has been involved here in developing and co-ordinating for some 15 years now.
Hip Hut Deco is a partnership – Artist Chris McClure with Daphne Dunn, photos: Kate Butner. Working with interior designers, architects, property developers, art directors and construction companies or directly for private clients. We operate either as individual artist/painters, or in teams of the best craftspeople, to whatever size needed to execute our client’s brief.
From houses, hotels, restaurants, shops and châteaux, to film-sets, music videos and events, we use our knowledge and experience of all the materials available and find imaginative ways to create the most exciting solutions for our clients.
Using trompe-l’oeil, varnishes, modern paint systems, sprayed finishes or straight decoration. For textures, we use stucco, plaster, polystyrene, polished concrete as well as brushes.
Alongside established painting methods, we continue to find and develop new ways of using both traditional and modern products that will be most suitable for a project, such as the surrounding conditions, extremes of temperature and time / budget constraints of the brief.
