Our favourite interior features as seen in #YorkshirepropertyoftheWeek 2014!

Posted on: December 19th, 2014 by rginteriors No Comments

As the New Year approaches, we thought we’d make our final Richard Grafton Interiors’ #Yorkshirepropertyoftheweek a little bit different and give something back to all of our loyal property loving supporters.

 

We get lots of feedback from our social media fans on how they love peeking through the keyhole of some of Yorkshire’s most beautiful properties on a weekly basis so thought it was time for a bit of a showcase of some of the top interior features as seen this year in #Yorkshirepropertyoftheweek, along with some top tips on how to achieve them in your home in 2015, from our team of expert designers.

 

#Yorkshirepropertyoftheweek interior highlights

It’s all about the space!
  • One feature that many of our #Yorkshirepropertyoftheweek 2014 favourites had in common were excellent and often imaginative use of space, to really maximise every inch of the property.

 

Our spatial planning expert Sarah explains: “The first thing I look for when I start any home improvement project is how the space is currently being used and how I can really improve it. Over the years, the way in which you live in your home evolves and as your family grows and your lifestyle changes, sometimes you find that you are not really maximising the space that you have available. My top tip for aspiring #YorkshirePropertyoftheWeek homeowners is to really think about this before you start any interior design project and seek the advice of a spatial planning expert to make sure that you get it right.”

Illuminating lighting
  • 2014 has also been an impressive year for lighting in our chosen properties and clever lighting can provide serious wow factor when used in the right way.

Karen, our lighting specialist, has a vast amount of knowledge on transforming rooms with beautiful lighting and shares her top tip for making the most of the light in your home:

“Lighting comes in many different guises, from ambient, to accent and decorative lighting which all bring something different to a room. My top tip is to factor lighting into your plans early on in the design process. Lighting should be at three levels in any room, the floor, walls and ceiling and if you’re having electrical work done, make sure the sockets are fitted where you want your table and floor lamps to be. Don’t leave it as an afterthought, but instead think about how you can really show off the design of your room, to make lighting a key feature of your home in 2015.”

Bespoke furniture

  • Creating bespoke pieces of furniture is something that many of our customers love to do to add individuality and original charm to their homes and we’ve seen lots of lovely examples in our Yorkshire Property of the Week feature.

Kim our interior designer can transform any piece of furniture, given half the chance and shares her expert tips for creating beautiful and timeless pieces for your home:

“Aesthetics and comfort are the two most important factors in how long you’ll love your furniture, so save your pennies for the very best in padding and fabulous fabric. We have a massive selection of show stopping fabrics in our showroom and 2014’s printed designs featuring everything from geometric prints to Venetian backdrops helped our customers create some truly amazing pieces. Top tip from me – when it comes to fabric don’t be afraid to go bold, particularly if the rest of the room is quite neutral.”

#YORKSHIREPROPERTYOFTHEWEEK – SIMPLE CLASSIC DESIGNS WINS AGAIN IN THIS GORGEOUS HARROGATE HOME

Posted on: December 11th, 2014 by rginteriors No Comments

This modern 5 bedroom house on the favoured Duchy estate in Harrogate is this weeks’ Richard Grafton #Yorkshirepropertyoftheweek.

With a stunning interior and a private secluded position, this home would be great for a growing family and is within a short distance of excellent local schools and amenities.

Our spatial planning expert Sarah focused on the light in this property and how it had been cleverly used to maximise each space

“The skylights incorporated into the single storey rooms like the family lounge enable as much light as possible to flood into the space. I love how the adjoining lounge and kitchen are so bright and spacious, not only good for entertaining but also for everyday family living. The white colour scheme with small injections of fresh and vibrant colours like lime green create a fun, fresh and inviting space”

c90363eafb57276990b9d563d9890c9d6f96c0e1

Sarah also admires the design and layout of the kitchen to comment on “The kitchen is often regarded as the heart of the home so ensuring that its design is suitable to your lifestyle is key. I like the arrangement of the breakfast table adjoining the kitchen island at a T-junction, it’s a clever use of space and means that everyone in the kitchen can be a part of the action, whether it’s the kids having breakfast before school or a formal dinner party, it’s a very social space.”

 349dfa159afd2ac9381306da5ca4aa08042b7070

Our interior designer Rosie thought the simple design in the children’s rooms worked really well: “The baby pink tones in this little girl’s room, the made to measure blinds, soft furnishings and accessories complement each other perfectly.

16a442bbb57b4179ab4d6ce87a0e2d45493ddd7f

The cabin bed in the little boys’ room is fun and functional, opening up a lot of storage space so that toys and clutter can be tucked away neatly. Both rooms can easily be adapted as the children grow by adding new accessories but the classic designs won’t date.”

#YORKSHIREPROPERTYOFTHEWEEK – NEUTRAL TONES AND SIMPLE DESIGN WINS AGAIN

Posted on: November 27th, 2014 by rginteriors No Comments

The time has come again for another Richard Grafton Interiors’ #Yorkshirepropertyoftheweek!

On the market with Hopkinson Estate Agents, this gorgeous barn conversion in Fewston has amazing views, 4 bedrooms and stunning interiors to match. The neutral colour scheme allows each room to flow seamlessly from one to the next with ease creating overall a truly beautiful house.

79577_HHP03775_IMG_00_0000_max_656x437

We asked our design team to comment on this barn conversion and here’s what they came up with:

Our interior designer Rosie, particularly liked the downstairs living space: “Although these rooms aren’t open plan, it still looks very spacious, light and airy. The cream furniture and minimalist design ensures that they look as big as possible without any clutter. I love how the owners have converted the original barn doors into patio doors, maximising the light and maintaining the buildings’ heritage.”

79577_HHP03775_IMG_02_0000_max_656x437

Andrew, our MD at Grafton Freestone, admired the bespoke design of the kitchen: “I love the symmetry in this room; the cabinets, chairs, lamps and even plants on the surfaces add a really nice touch.  Having the rounded cabinets on the end of the units create a soft appearance and work really well with the arched window.

79577_HHP03775_IMG_06_0000_max_656x437

The picture frame fireplace underneath the television creates another ‘zone’ in the room, making it perfect for entertaining, with plenty of space for guests to gather whilst the host is cooking. This sort of social/living/dining area is something that is often top of our client’s wish list when we are designing their kitchens.”

79577_HHP03775_IMG_16_0000_max_656x437

It was the bedrooms that caught the eye of another of our interior designers, Karen “The whole house follows the same colour palette which works really well and it’s definitely worth taking the time over choosing the right palette when designing your interior. A soft and subtle combination like the one chosen here is a fab choice for a bedroom and I love how the dark lamps add depth and warmth to create this calm and serene room.”

#YORKSHIREPROPERTYOFTHEWEEK – LIGHT, CAMERA, ACTION! SHOWSTOPPING PROPERTY IN THE HEART OF HARROGATE

Posted on: November 20th, 2014 by rginteriors No Comments

We are heading back to our hometown of Harrogate for this week’s Richard Grafton Interiors’ #Yorkshirepropertyoftheweek. On the market with Knight Frank, this gorgeous 5 bedroom property has a high degree of privacy whilst also being just a short drive from central Harrogate. The open plan living space in this property is perfectly complemented by the modern décor and neutral colour scheme, ready to move straight in, it’s a buyers dream!

28689_HAR140140_IMG_49_0000_max_656x437

Our designers couldn’t wait to comment on this superb property, here’s what they picked out:

Sarah, our kitchen specialist, particularly liked the open plan kitchen/living/dining room “What an amazing space! With the help of the bi-folding doors, it is maximised even further with an abundance of light and a sleek, sophisticated style. The space is also so flexible, the zones could be adapted to suit the owners lifestyle, whether they’re a family chilling out on a lazy Sunday or social butterflies hosting a big party for friends.”

28689_HAR140140_IMG_51_0000_max_656x437

Karen, one of our expert Interior Designers and lighting experts, loved how the owners had made the most of light throughout the whole house. “Through large windows and multiple bi-folding doors, light is a huge feature in this house. I especially like the large window in the sitting room. Having such a long uninterrupted pane of glass gives panoramic views of the garden and really elongates the room.”

28689_HAR140140_IMG_53_0000_max_656x437

28689_HAR140140_IMG_54_0000_max_656x437

Karen continues “The windows in the master bedroom are an eye catching feature in themselves. I love how the top panes follow the shape of the roof and the doors beneath them lead onto a half balcony, opening the space up even further.”

#YORKSHIREPROPERTYOFTHEWEEK – WILLOW GREEN, A MODERN AND PRACTICAL FAMILY HOME

Posted on: November 13th, 2014 by rginteriors No Comments

If you’re looking for a home that is beautiful on both the outside and in, then ‘Willow Green’ is the one for you! This week’s Richard Grafton Interiors #Yorkshirepropertyoftheweek boasts five bedrooms and large mature gardens with plenty of the space for the whole family. Built in the 1930’s, this elegant home has been modernised whilst retaining many lovely original features to hint at its heritage.

71840_MYP26747_IMG_09_0000_max_656x437

As always, we’ve picked the brains of our expert designers to see what they think of this property and here’s what they came up with.

Sarah, our kitchen and bathroom specialist, loved the large open plan kitchen and dining space: “The simple dark wood  and white colour scheme in this room looks great and the huge bi-folding doors bring in so much light, letting in that fabulous view out on to the garden. Everything has its place and having features like a retractable extractor fan in the kitchen island allows you to save space and ensure that there are no obstructions in the sleek appearance of the island.”

71840_MYP26747_IMG_16_0000_max_656x437

 

71840_MYP26747_IMG_06_0000_max_656x437

Sarah also loved the sleek contemporary bathroom: “The simple lines, full length glass shower screen and beautiful stonework work really well in this room creating a classically timeless space.”

71840_MYP26747_IMG_08_0000_max_656x437

Our interior designer Rosie picked up on some of the more fun aspects of this property: “The owners have chosen a fab bright floor in the second living room/playroom making it a fun informal space for the younger members of the family. Traditionally used more for commercial flooring, vinyl like this is now becoming a popular choice in the home due to it being warm under foot, hardwearing and easy to clean – which is perfect if you have children!”

#YORKSHIREPROPERTYOFTHEWEEK – RURAL PROPERTY WITH OODLES OF SPACE AND CLEVER DESIGN

Posted on: November 6th, 2014 by rginteriors No Comments

Be prepared to be wowed by this week’s Richard Grafton Interiors’ #Yorkshirepropertyoftheweek.

Cross Green Farm is an exceptional property in Lothersdale, with not only fantastic views across the Aire valley, but an equally stunning interior. Dating back to 1890, this property has been fully redesigned and beautifully furnished to create this serene modern home now on the market with Myrings.

71840_MYP01817_IMG_21_0000_max_656x437

The comfy furniture and cosy colour scheme was an aspect that our interior designer Karen particularly liked in this house. “As it is an old building, it’s nice that the owners haven’t made every room ultra-modern and have stuck to a classic contemporary scheme. The dark grey on the walls bring a sophisticated yet cosy feel to the room and by sticking to neutral colours with the furniture, it has a lovely, relaxed family friendly vibe. I can just imagine the stove burning away as the nights get colder!”

71840_MYP01817_IMG_05_0000_max_656x437

Our MD, Richard Grafton, thought the cinema / TV room worked particularly well: “If you have the space, having an area like this means that you can create a more formal lounge and informal sitting/TV area, particularly handy when you have teenagers who want their own space. I like the simple design and the symmetry in this room, the shelves either side of the television and the central exposed beam create a nice balance. Cinema rooms are certainly growing in popularity, so much so that we now offer Audio Visual designs and solutions to our clients as part of our overall interior design and installation service”.

71840_MYP01817_IMG_13_0000_max_656x437

Working from home is becoming increasingly popular and having an annex where you are able to feel the comfort and convenience of home whilst keeping business and home life separate is fantastic if you have the space. Karen explains: “Converting areas like this that would normally be used as loft storage is a great idea. The shape of the roof means that there isn’t a lot of standing space in this room however clever placement of furniture allows plenty of working space and the alcoves provide a fab storage solution.”

#YORKSHIREPROPERTYOFTHEWEEK – BEAUTIFUL BARN CONVERSION IN A STUNNING YORKSHIRE LOCATION

Posted on: October 31st, 2014 by rginteriors No Comments

This week’s Richard Grafton Interiors’ #Yorkshirepropertyoftheweek is a charming semi-detached barn conversion by Fewston Reservoir.

Having the luxury of open space but the security of neighbours, this property has the balance just right. This spacious family home has been tastefully renovated with superb views across the valley and a stunning interior to match!

 79577_HHP02963_IMG_00_0001_max_656x437

We asked our designers what they thought of this conversion and here’s what they came up with:

The kitchen, living and dining room caught the eye of Sarah, our senior designer and spatial expert “This huge kitchen come dining area is the perfect space for entertaining. Having not only a dining table in the same room, but also a smaller bar table for breakfast brunches or perhaps a space to perch with an evening drink. I love seeing kitchens integrated into other rooms as it means the chef can be a part of the party when having guests over!”

 79577_HHP02963_IMG_01_0002_max_656x437

Andrew, director at Grafton Freestone, loved the mixture of materials used in the property “One of the major benefits of converting an old barn is being able to expose all of the traditional materials such as the wooden beams and beautiful stone. These materials add so much character to the building and really stand out here against the crisp white walls.”

79577_HHP02963_IMG_17_0000_max_656x437

Kim, our interior designer picked one of the simple and stylish bedrooms as one of her favourites: “The irregular shape of this room makes it feel cosy and I think the decision to stick to the white colour palette works well, letting the curves of the room and the lovely beams speak for themselves. The simple accessories add a splash of colour to this blank canvas and can easily be changed over time to give the room a different feel.”

If you are currently making changes to your home, perhaps taking down walls to make an open plan kitchen dining area, speak to one of our trusty designers for ideas on how to decorate your new found space! It can be difficult to visualise the room as a whole after living in it as two separate areas so having a fresh perspective can really help.

#YORKSHIREPROPERTYOFTHEWEEK – PERFECTLY MANICURED MANOR HOUSE EXUDING CHARACTER AND CHARM

Posted on: October 23rd, 2014 by rginteriors No Comments

This 5 bedroom home in the village of Blubberhouses, just outside Harrogate, is this week’s Richard Grafton Interiors’ #Yorkshirepropertyoftheweek.

Easy to see why we picked this one, the attention to detail in this house is fantastic, from the perfectly symmetrical tree lined approach to the installation of the very best fixtures and fittings in every room – this hidden gem would make the perfect home for those house hunters looking for a stunning rural retreat.

79577_HHP04845_IMG_00_0000_max_656x437

Our Interior Designer Janet had the pleasure of working on this property, so we thought she would be the perfect person to comment on its stunning interior;

“The client wanted the sitting room to be a place where the whole family could relax in a luxurious yet practical space. Originally mustard and pink tones, the colour scheme in this room is now very soft and relaxing, with the addition of the large sofas and wooden floor. I especially like the bespoke blinds fitted to the arch of the windows, they frame the windows well without blocking out those gorgeous original features.”

 79577_HHP04845_IMG_06_0000_max_656x437

Janet continues: “The smooth curves of the island and the bespoke lighting add an interesting dimension and shape to this room. I helped advise on the colours of the kitchen and made sure that the layout of the room suited the family. The grey bar stools pick up the grey tones in the marble surfaces and cabinets, bringing the whole scheme together. Simple details like this can really transform a room. The beautiful detailing on the windows provide a lovely balance between old and new and the window seat is a fab use of the space. It was great to work on a project that had such architectural character!”

79577_HHP04845_IMG_03_0000_max_656x437

Janet also worked on the master bedroom and concludes: “Due to the age of this building, one of our main objectives was to transform the rooms so that high gloss lighting was able to flood the space and convert dark and dismal corners. When finished, this property became very welcoming and a perfect family home!”

#YORKSHIREPROPERTYOFTHEWEEK – A SMART HOUSE WITH CLEVER USE OF SPACE AND LIGHT

Posted on: October 17th, 2014 by rginteriors No Comments

If you’re looking for luxury living, a house with high tech gadgets and a fully integrated CCTV system to keep you feeling safe and secure, then you’ve found it!

Situated in the historic and pretty city of York, this week’s Richard Grafton Interiors’ #Yorkshirepropertyoftheweek is a smart house in every sense of the word. Not only is it highly efficient running from solar panels and a ground source heat pump, it even has a built in vacuum system!

If the gadgets and gizmos aren’t enough to tempt you, this property has provides almost 3500 square feet of living space and 5 gorgeous bedrooms at your disposal.

53812_YOR140234_IMG_01_0000_max_656x437

We asked our design team to comment on this smart house and here’s what they thought:

Sarah, our spatial planning expert, loved how glass had been used in the house to help each zone flow from one to another: “By using glass in areas like the hallway and dining area, it not only opens up the space but also allows light to flood through into areas which could have been quite dark otherwise. The floating staircase is one area where the glass creates maximum impact, coupled with the dark wood, steel hand rail and dark grey flooring it creates a very sophisticated and sleek space.”

glass stairs and dining

The gallery at the top of the stairs caught Rosie’s eye “What a fabulous use of space! This looks to be the perfect place to relax, enjoy the views and get away from the hustle and bustle of downstairs. Once again the seamless glass plays a main part in creating this space, continuing the floating effect whilst allowing light to drop down the stairs. The bi-folding doors look stylish as well as providing easy access to the balcony overlooking the garden.”

#YORKSHIREPROPERTYOFTHEWEEK – YOUR OWN GRAND COUNTRY ESTATE WITH STUNNING DESIGN FEATURES INSIDE AND OUT

Posted on: October 9th, 2014 by rginteriors No Comments

This Richard Grafton Interiors’ #Yorkshirepropertyoftheweek is truly one of a kind. If you’ve always dreamt of owning your own sprawling Yorkshire estate then this palatial property with beautiful gardens will have you swooning!

Situated in Kirkburton, Huddersfield and with six acres of land and a separate side wing, this expansive property makes the most of both the interior and exterior space available.We asked our designers to pick out a few of their favourite features and here’s what they had to say.

96643_3808413_IMG_30_0000_max_656x437

The plasterwork detailing on the ceiling in this room caught the eye of Karen, one of our Interior Designers:

“Although this room is currently unfurnished, the detail on the ceiling and the large chandelier reflects the grandeur in this room. I’m imagining sumptuous fabrics, luxurious chaise lounges and lavish cushions!”

96643_3808413_IMG_08_0000_max_656x437

Kim, another of our fabulous Interior Designers, picked out this bathroom: “In comparison to the rest of the house this bathroom is quite modest, however, the carefully positioned amenities and lighting make use of the space well.  The dark stone colour on the walls and the tiling which picks up the same tone create a relaxing vibe in this room, perfect for relaxing in a candlelit bubble bath! The chandeliers continue the grand theme and add a classic, traditional edge to an otherwise modern scheme.”

 96643_3808413_IMG_11_0000_max_656x437

Although we are interior designers, we couldn’t resist commenting on the amazing gardens this property has. The formal, natural and water gardens with parkland are all decorated with sculptures, ponds and a garden house ideal for sitting out and admiring the view across the grounds.
