Our Story

Portobello Painters was founded in 2014 by two friends, Orlando & George and their love for high quality finishes.

Orlando learnt his craft in France, spending three years refurbishing super yachts to the highest of standards before returning to the UK to establish a career in the construction industry. Meanwhile, George was obtaining a Bachelor of Arts in Planning and Property Development after discovering a passion for the industry through working on building sites with his father..

Since 2014, PP have been contracted to work on a variety of projects throughout London differing in scale and style for various building contractors, interior designers, estate agencies and private clients. Many of whom are now repeat clients who value the quality of service and project management we provide.


Having initially focused on providing solely the highest standard of decorating service for both the interior and exterior of residential and commercial properties. The company has evolved organically to offer full refurbishment, maintenance and building services.

This was the reason for the birth of Portobello Projects which is the side of the company managing the building and refurbishment contracts. We now have a team of dedicated trades such as carpenters, plumbers and electricians who fulfil all of the refurbishment contracts we take on, meaning we are able to offer a complete service from the design stage all the way through the building phase to the finishing touches.
