My name is Mark Libby - I am a freelance expert wallpaper hanger and decorative artist , originally from Polruan in Cornwall and now based in Bloomsbury, London. I can provide quality work for a discerning clientele.

Since qualifying in 1992, I have worked on projects for various clients including Anouska Hempel Design Ltd and Godrich Interiors

I have also had many private clients including contracts in Egypt and Austria. My style combines contemporary and traditional techniques as demonstrated on projects at The Hempel Hotel and at Blakes Hotel.

As a professional wallpaper hanger, I have worked with a specialist wallpaper hangers guild. I am experienced at hanging many different types of wall coverings, including delicate hand printed papers, paper backed fabrics and super wide wallpapers. I also have experience of hanging de Gournay wallcoverings and I am now on their private list of recommended hangers.

Some of the wallpapers I have installed are produced or distributed by the following company links:

Osborne and Little   Designers Guild   Timorous Beasties   Walltex UK Innovations   de Gournay   Bruno Triplet   Anna French   Nobilis   Arte   Graham & Brown   Neisha Crosland   J & V   Phillip Jeffries   Gracie         Muraspec   Fromental   Young & Battaglia   Farrow & Ball     Weitzner Wallcoverings   Dedar   Donghia   Cole & son   Fox Linton      Vescom   Tektura   Little Green   Lewis & Wood   Clarence House   Ornamenta   William Robinson   Jocelyn Warner   Griffin & Wong   AWB   Kelly Hoppen   Giardini Wallcoverings   Andrew Martin   House of Hackney      Rockett St George   Trove   Assemblage   Pufone   Wallcovering Agencies   Glitter Bug   Stereo   Mineheart   Tangletree Interiors   Elitis   Zoffany

I work to a very high standard specialising in  wallpaper hanging, gilding, reproduction, faux finishes, Trompe L'oeil, murals and decorative paint techniques.

I make cracked gesso canvas for a beautiful wallcovering that can also be applied to furniture or any other suitable surface, with a choice of colours and finishes, including metal leaf, iridescent pearl, coloured shellac and plain colour.

I can also make bespoke hard lampshades utilising these decorative finishes, or incorporating wallpapers of your choice to suit any   interior scheme.

I offer free estimates and advice. I can work alone or in combination with interior designers or architects as and when necessary.

" It is obvious that Mark takes a great pride and pleasure in what he does. His installation of my de Gournay wallcovering was an intricate procedure. The meticulous way in which everything was planned and executed was a revelation. He clearly sees what he does as a craft, and the stunning results are evidence that it is. A hardcore specialist! " - Sienna Miller, Actress, London.
" I own an interior design company and require an extremely high standard of work - Mark Libby did a superb job of hanging a delicate de Gournay silk wall covering in the show apartment for a prestigious project in London. He has installed several wall coverings on various projects for us, and they have all been finished to the same high standard. Mark is a top rate craftsman with a good eye for detail, and I recommend him highly." -       
Alix Lawson, Creative Director at Lawson Robb Interiors London.
" Mark has completed a number of wallpaper projects for me over the years, both small and very often big, often very complex and almost always very delicate! He is incredibly meticulous in his work, very professional and delivers the most excellent result; he is a craftsman and really cares about the finish. He is also patient, taking the time to do the job properly, never rushing through.
I recommend him highly; his work is without a doubt fantastic." -
Gretchen Trusted, Founder of Shake The Sky Interior Design London.
"I am the Colour Consultant for Farrow & Ball and therefore change the wall colours in my house on a frequent basis - and I require an extremely high standard of work. Mark Libby has done a lot of wallpapering for me over the years. He is extremely reliable and a top rate craftsman - he works quietly and efficiently - what more could you ask for. He is also more than capable of giving creative input. I recommend him highly." -
