James Finlay

Adviser on Historic Interior Decoration


I am an independent adviser on historic interior decoration, who for the past 30 years has worked on a wide variety of projects, many for the National Trust in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

In 1990 I was appointed a Consultant on Interior Decoration to the National Trust, and since 1998 I have been the Trust's sole Adviser on Interior Decoration.

I offer a broad range of advice to owners and guardians of historic buildings, from the research, discussion and assessment stages all the way through to the organising and managing of projects.
