Meet The Team

My name is Aaron Milton, joint director with Josh Milburn of The Mils Professional Decorating. My passion began when I was introduced to decorating by my dad at age 15 helping out where I could at his decorating business. After finishing college, I returned to decorating and continued for 15 years, working with different painters, learning and perfecting my technique that I practice today.

In 2021, after working on multiple jobs together, Josh and I decided that we could join together to collectively launch a decorating business, naming it The Mils, after our surnames with the vision that we can be a nationally recognised brand.

Outside of work I enjoy a lot of sports, football was my life growing up, now I’m getting older I’ve taken up golf and found this taking up a lot of my free time. When I’m not watching or playing sports, I love spending time with my fiancé and friends socialising.

My Name is Joshua Milburn. I am the joint director of “The Mils Professional Decorating”. 

I started my decorating journey 15 years ago when I started working for my father's business, “The Extension Company LTD”. It’s the eight years I spent working for my father. I found my passion for decorating. 

In 2015 I took the Jump and started my own decorating business called ICOS Professional Decorating. I nurtured and perfected my decorating techniques and customer service skills within that business, which I have now brought over to our new business, “The Mils Professional Decorating”.

Aaron and I established The Mils Decorating in April 2021. After working on a few projects together, we decided we would start a business, and from there, we haven’t looked back. 

Outside of the working day, my hobbies include playing golf and football and socialising with friends and family.
