12 White Roses

In the hunt for beautiful Art Deco features to add to our current kitchen fantailrenovation project I stumbled across the fantastic Birmingham based firm Classic Ceilings. This small enterprise run by Marc Newey creates high quality period plaster ceiling roses, coving corners, overdoors, light switch surrounds and air bricks. He personally designs and manufactures pieces in Arts & Crafts and English & French Revival styles, but its his love for Art Deco that made my jaw drop. His attention to detail and eye for multi layered design really captures the period beautifully and the execution is perfect.

Marc has supplied me a ‘Sunstorm’ vent cover which I’ve installed over an airbrick on a chimney breast, and two ‘Miami’ ceiling roses that echo the appearance of an old cinema clock that will hang at one of the room.
