We asked Richard to take a look at this property, and here’s what he picked out:

“I love the mix of old and new in the kitchen. It’s a very traditional farmhouse with the wooden cabinets and oak table, but the modern sphere pendant lights add a contemporary twist and tie in perfectly with the colour of the bespoke cabinetry behind.”

“Moving upstairs into one of the bedrooms, the owners have chosen to renovate the loft space into a beautiful bedroom. Painting the beams white opens up the space and is in keeping with the simple, sophisticated interior design scheme adopted throughout the property.”

#YORKSHIREPROPERTYOFTHEWEEK – LUXURY LIVING IN ONE OF ILKEY’S FINEST FARMHOUSES

Posted on: July 16th, 2015 by rginteriors No Comments

We have chosen Stockgate Farm in Ilkley as this week’s Richard Grafton #Yorkshirepropertyoftheweek. With stunning panoramic views across Wharfedale, this modern farmhouse really has it all (including a guest annex for green-eyed friends and family!)

exterior

We asked Sarah, one of our interior architects, to take a look at this home and here’s what she picked out:

“The beautiful, chic, modern interior of this property is a bold move by the owners/developers but it has paid off, perfectly contrasting with and complementing the rustic farmhouse setting. The dining room in particular is stunning with the fabulous circular table and understated low hanging lights above. The bi-folding doors are a lovely touch and really draw light into the room, providing a gorgeous rural outlook from an almost space-age haven.”

“Sticking with a similar neutral colour scheme framed with bold black statement pieces, the sitting room is the perfect area for entertaining with large sofas and built in media unit. Having the television and shelving sunk into the wall makes all the difference in turning this area into a luxury, minimalist space.”

We asked our interior designer Janet, who loves rural properties and serene colour schemes to take a look at this country home and here’s what she picked out:

“The French inspired furniture in this room looks beautiful, paired with the pale blue colour scheme it looks so tranquil and just the sort of space I would like to spend my time in. The textured rug on the floor adds a touch of warmth to the room and the little luxurious touches throughout add charm from the symmetrical mirrors to the side tables, matching lamps and artwork.”

Sitting

“The colour scheme is continued into the kitchen with the duck egg bespoke cabinets. From the wicker storage baskets to the traditional Belfast sink, I love this homely farmhouse style kitchen.”

We asked our designer Vic to take a look at this property, and here’s what she had to say:

Vic loved the use of colour in this house: “Not afraid to veer away from the natural tones, the owners of this house have chosen a rich and warm colour scheme including the steely grey in the living room and the teal in the foyer with matching velvet armchairs – the space feels cosy and luxurious.”

“I love the mixture of fabrics, patterns and textures throughout this property and the mirrored furniture adds a touch of glamour and modernity to an otherwise traditional country house.”

#YORKSHIREPROPERTYOFTHEWEEK – FOUR FLOORS OF LUXURY LIVING IN THE HEART OF YORKSHIRE

Posted on: June 25th, 2015 by rginteriors No Comments

This week’s Richard Grafton #Yorkshirepropertyoftheweek is a character filled family home in Burn Bridge, North Yorkshire. This six bedroom house offers beautifully designed space over four floors and an enviable position in the highly sought after village of Burn Bridge. The whole house has been decorated and beautifully refurbished whilst retaining the impressive features the property has to offer, including high ceilings and open fireplaces.

We asked one of our Interior Designers, Karen Draper, to take a look at this property and here’s what she picked out.

Karen loved the use of vibrant fabrics in this house, particularly in the cinema room. “I think a lot of people underestimate how much of a difference a fabric can make to the overall appearance of a room. The footstool has been covered with a stripy, multi-coloured textured fabric, along with the lime green cushions which looks fab adds an element of fun to the entire room.”

71840_25634574_IMG_27_0000_max_656x437

“The kitchen is a lovely space with the high ceiling and lots of open worktop space available. I would probably add come colourful blinds to the windows in this room just to make the space seem less clinical. But then being a lover of beautiful fabrics, I would say that!”

Posted on: June 18th, 2015 by rginteriors No Comments

This week’s Richard Grafton #Yorkshirepropertyoftheweek is a stunning property in Scotton, between Harrogate and Knaresborough. On the market with Hopkinsons Estate Agents, Mill House is a Grade II listed family home with great design both inside and out. With approximately 1 ¾ acres of private landscaped grounds, it would make a fantastic family home.

We asked our interior architect Sarah to take a look at this stunning property, and here’s what she thought:

“This is the ULTIMATE socialising space. With the dining table at the heart of the room and adjoining seating area, this takes open plan living to the next level. I love this space and the use of white throughout gives it a luxury holiday villa feel.”

79577_25626286_IMG_02_0000_max_656x437

The contemporary galleried landing above the kitchen is a fantastic feature and really makes the most of the high ceiling and exposed beams. Overall the use of glass in this property really adds to the wow factor, opening up the space and letting the light flood through, it’s a beautifully designed home”

#YORKSHIREPROPERTYOFTHEWEEK – BRINGING YORKSHIRE’S MOST PRESTIGIOUS ADDRESS TO LIFE WITH BEAUTIFUL INTERIORS FROM RICHARD GRAFTON

Posted on: June 11th, 2015 by rginteriors No Comments

This week’s Richard Grafton #Yorkshirepropertyoftheweek provides an ‘exclusive’ preview of the St Leonard’s Place development in York, an imposing, grade II* listed crescent that was once the most prestigious address for York’s high society set.

exterior

This meticulous restoration will return these stunning properties back to their former glory and we are delighted to have been involved in the transformation.

The development comprises 29 luxury apartments, 6 distinctive mews homes and 5 palatial townhouses, with a beautiful interior scheme designed by our very own talented team of designers.

bedroom

Richard Grafton explains what makes St Leonard’s Place the most sought after address in the region:

“The St Leonard’s development is undoubtedly one of the most exclusive addresses in Yorkshire and the properties wouldn’t look out of place in the heart of Chelsea. York is a fantastic city with its rich heritage and architectural influences so we had to make sure that the interior reflected the majestic exterior of the building and the setting.

Keeping the palette quite neutral with an overall luxurious and classic/contemporary feel we were able to create opulent open plan living that showcases the space beautifully.

St Leonard’s Place offers buyers a unique opportunity to own a very prestigious property and the level of quality when it comes to the design and materials used is truly exceptional.”

#YORKSHIREPROPERTYOFTHEWEEK – BEAUTIFUL FEATURES HOUSED IN THE HISTORIC SKELTON HALL

Posted on: June 4th, 2015 by rginteriors No Comments

This week’s Richard Grafton #Yorkshirepropertyoftheweek is a beautiful property, seeped in history.

During World War II the Hall was requisitioned by the RAF which no doubt saw this fine building at its lowest point. After the war, the building was considered too large to live in so was divided into two homes. Sometime later, the two owners individually decided to sell their homes and Skelton Hall was bought by one buyer who then undertook the challenge of reuniting both wings and bringing the Hall back to its former glory!

76006_76006_8153_IMG_01_0000_max_656x437

We asked our designers to take a look at this stunning property and here’s what they had to say:

Our staircase expert and interior architect, Andrew picked out the hallway and staircase to focus on “Small details can really make a huge difference when refurbishing a staircase. The detail of the metal balustrades and the dark wood handrail against the neutral staircase, is so elegant and timeless and the wallpaper brings the whole area to life.”

76006_76006_8153_IMG_11_0000_max_656x437

Andrew continues “I love what the owners have done with the panelling and use of colour in this hallway. Not only does it elongate the corridor, it also links to the wallpaper in the staircase without making it seem too busy.”

Richard Grafton Leeds Half Marathon donation brings happiness to deserving families

Posted on: June 3rd, 2015 by rginteriors No Comments

A few weeks ago four members of the Richard Grafton team took part in the Leeds Half Marathon and completing it was a huge achievement for Richard, Milly, Andrew and Sarah. Knowing that we were raising vital funds for the amazing charity, Harrogate Candlelighters is what kept us motivated in our training and helped us cross that finish line!

Grafton_PR_Shots_Apr2015 014

Candlelighters helps children who are suffering from cancer and their families by providing support where they need it and blessing them with a touch of normality with their ‘home away from home’ environments. Thanks to the generosity of our friends, colleagues and customers we managed to raise a whopping £2,150 which will help provide support and a little bit of happiness to many families when they need it the most.

We sat down with Noemie Salvaudon to talk about how the money will be used and we were amazing about how much of a difference our donation will make.

It could pay for….. 4 Candlelighter’s Family Holidays, caravanning in Bridlington or holidaying at Centre Parks. These destinations are within driving distance of treatment centre, giving families a safety net, and can be cancelled or re-arranged at no cost, giving the families peace of mind. The children always enjoy these trips and it allows both themselves and their family to have some breathing space away from the hospital.

Or the money could go towards … 86 ChemoDucks. ChemoDuck is a soft toy offered to each child on treatment. ChemoDuck can have a feeding tube or a Hickman line, so treatment can be explained using them and they help the children be brave and reassured as they have a friend who will go through everything with them. After each chemo session, the child gets a sticker, and with 10 stickers they can get a new outfit for ChemoDuck. We’ve been told that Batman outfits are especially on trend at the moment!

We’d like to take this time to say a huge thank you to everyone who kindly sponsored us for the half marathon, we are already in training for our next challenge and will continue our commitment to raising funds for this wonderful charity.

Noemie Salvaudon, Event Fundraiser at Candlelighters “I’ve realised lately how much I smile when I talk about Candlelighters and childhood cancer. Out of context, it may seem strange. What I smile about is the support we’re able to give each member of the family and the special moments we’re privileged to witness as we are based at the hospital, like an end of treatment day or a last day of chemo. Today at The Square, our support centre, we’re hosting a grand-parent tea party, and in a few weeks we’ll have another sibling’s day. These are the things that make me smile.”

#YORKSHIREPROPERTYOFTHEWEEK – A SPACIOUS HOME IN A TRANQUIL AND SECLUDED LOCATION

Posted on: May 28th, 2015 by rginteriors No Comments

This week’s Richard Grafton #Yorkshirepropertyoftheweek is a lovely four bedroom home on Thorner Lane in the desirable village of Scarcroft. With interesting architectural features and high spec finishes, this remodelled house has plenty of space both inside and out!

36273_WBYSP99239952_IMG_00_0000_max_656x437

We asked our designers to take a quick look at this property, and here’s what they picked out:

Andrew focused on the windows and the impact they have on the rest of the house. “I really like to see houses that have chosen to do something a little bit different with something that could just be a standard feature. The arched windows along with the addition of two roof lights add an interesting twist to this room, and really maximise the light.”

36273_WBYSP99239952_IMG_02_0001_max_656x437

Moving upstairs, Sarah took the opportunity to comment on the bathroom. “Some would steer away from having dark stone tiles in the bathroom, but I think it works really well in this room. I love the contrast between the tiles and silhouette of the freestanding tub, showing off its elegant shape.”
