Restoration & Reconstruction

At Bruce Fine Papers, we aim to provide you with a product that is totally unique. We pride ourselves on having the ability to produce wallpaper from any fragment that catches your eye, to create the perfect look for your project plans.

The process from start to finish...

The process involved in any restoration or reconstruction work is a long procedure, but one that is critically followed to give you the result that you have always dreamed of.

Every project that we work on is tailor-made to order, while all are also custom coloured to your requirements.

  1. Below is an example of a section of wallpaper as recieved.

  2. The reconstruction process begins by photographing or scanning the original fragment, this is then loaded onto our specialised computer programs and any damaged or missing areas are reconstructed prioir to the colours being seperated to form an artwork for each colour seperation. These seperations determine how many blocks are needed for production, depending on the amount of colours in the fragment selected, this process should be expected to take 2 - 4 weeks.

  3. Once this process is complete, we ask you to approve the artwork, to ensure it is to the standard you expect. When authorised the blocks for seperation are then manufactured which takes 2 - 4 weeks.
  4. As soon as the blocks have been made, large samples are printed and again sent for your approval. We understand at Bruce Fine Papers that the end product may not always turn out as you expected in your mind, so the second approval stage is to allow you to make further colour adjustments. Once we have final approval, the requirement amount of wallpaper is produced.

Based on a ten roll print, your order will be completed within two to three weeks. All orders are trimmed and individually hand wound and wrapped.

Projects that we have worked on

Bruce Fine Papers have had considerable experience in the past working on a variety of projects, dating from 17th century restoration to present day contemporary designs.

Examples of our work can be seen worldwide, and in places that may surprise you. Films such as ‘Love Actually’ have played host to our patterns, as has Downing Street, the home where two of our wallpapers proudly hang. 

Stepping away from the UK, Biltmore House in North Carolina – the largest private estate in the USA – used Bruce Fine Papers to reproduce Vanderbilt designs in the late 1990’s, as did Gore Place, in Waltham, Massachusetts.
