We showed this stunning Georgian Mansion to our design team, and here’s what they had to say:

The dining hall caught the eye of Sarah “This room is truly amazing. From the height of the ceiling with the exposed beams, to the beautiful views out of the floor to ceiling windows; it would be a great place to entertain. The large windows bring so much light into this room which opens the hall up to the beautiful gardens and lots of original features in this room make it a very impressive space.”

Kim picked out the twin bedroom to comment on “I love the playful aspect of this room. The stripy wallpaper, canopies and mixture of colours creates a fab fun and adventurous space for little guests.”

#YORKSHIREPROPERTYOFTHEWEEK – AN ILKLEY BEAUTY WITH AN ELEGANT AND CLASSIC DESIGN

Posted on: May 14th, 2015 by rginteriors No Comments

Many thanks to Hunters Estate Agents for nominating this fabulous property as this week’s Richard Grafton #Yorkshirepropertyoftheweek.

One of the area’s finest properties, this five bedroom home is perfect for a growing family located in the sought after residential area between Ilkley and Ben Rhydding.

Exterior

We asked Richard to cast an expert eye on this wonderful property and give us his thoughts. Here’s what he had to say.

“Starting off with the kitchen, I love how the owners have selected a couple of colours and have really committed to not veering off the colour palette. A simple step like this can make a room look timeless and classic. The lights above the kitchen island are a fab feature and give this room a sense of elegant sophistication, I bet they look great on an evening!”

Kitchen

Richard continues “The sitting area in the adjoining room is stunning and continues the timeless and elegant theme. The velvet armchairs and matching sofa both mirror the colour palette in the kitchen, and are very similar to the classic/contemporary theme we have chosen from our showroom.”

Sitting room

Kim, another of our interior designers, took the time to comment on the staircase

“This staircase is so elegant and the furniture and accessories complement its Victorian features perfectly, from the fabric on the blind, to the chandelier and beautiful console table, with symmetrical lamps, it’s a lovely entrance to this gorgeous home.”

#YORKSHIREPROPERTYOFTHEWEEK – THE RICHARD GRAFTON SHOWROOM, YORKSHIRE’S PREMIER INTERIOR ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN HOUSE

Posted on: May 7th, 2015 by rginteriors No Comments

Okay so it’s not actually on the market but we are so proud to have opened our new extended showroom in Harrogate’s Montpellier Quarter, we couldn’t resist making it this week’s Richard Grafton Yorkshire Property of the Week!

After opening our interior design showroom three years ago we wanted to extend it and show off more of the full range of interior architecture and design services that we offer to our clients.

exterior

The showroom has always showcased the range of fabrics, wallcoverings, furniture and accessories that our designers use but only offered a taster of our bathroom, kitchen, cabinetry and AV installations expertise.

The new extended showroom takes customers on a journey, from intricate stonework, detailed timber finishes and innovative sound and lighting systems, which bring the vision for their whole interior scheme to life in one space.

Our talented and diverse team of interior designers and architects have sourced all of the décor and interior finishes from the walnut wood flooring to the beautiful bespoke furniture and artwork, providing an inspirational setting in which to sit down with a client over coffee and discuss their vision for their home.

TV room

Founder Richard Grafton explains “We are so proud of our Yorkshire roots and whilst we wanted to create an environment that matched the quality and service you will find in any of the high end, London showrooms, we also wanted to make sure that it was a place where our clients felt comfortable and ‘at home’.”

The three storey design hub now houses Grafton Freestone on the ground floor, where our team of interior architects will walk you through the whole process of how to make the best use of the space available in your home, using beautiful materials and innovative sound and lighting, to bring it to life.

bathroom

Andrew Freestone explains “People often feel like they have to work with the space they have in their home and don’t always see the possibilities that moving a window or a wall can create. We project manage everything from the initial design and installation of cabinetry, flooring, kitchens and bathrooms right through to the decoration and finishing touches.”

#YORKSHIREPROPERTYOFTHEWEEK – ‘ZERO HOUSE’ WITH SERIOUS WOW FACTOR!

Posted on: April 30th, 2015 by rginteriors No Comments

This new Richard Grafton #Yorkshirepropertyoftheweek is an ultra-sleek contemporary home in York. ‘Zero House’ has the perfect location for ease of access to the centre and also prime location for local prestigious schools; St Peter’s and Bootham. The super modern exterior design is a continuous theme throughout the entire property, with the rooms kept clean and simple.

We asked Andrew Freestone, Grafton Freestone’s interior architect to take a look at the property and here’s what he had to say –

“The owner obviously had a particular style in mind with this house, the exterior is so beautifully striking and sets a tone for the rest of the property. It’s interesting that they’ve chosen to have the inner frames of the windows in a natural wood rather than the slate grey used on the exterior, this combination of materials gives the property a much warmer feel inside.”

53812_YOR150118_IMG_01_0002_max_656x437

“The floor to ceiling windows in the office, fill the room with light, creating a feeling of height and space. The Barcelona style leather furniture nods to the owner’s sense of style and appreciation for classic design and gives this work space a more relaxed feel.”

#YORKSHIREPROPERTYOFTHEWEEK – COUNTRY ESTATE THAT STANDS PROUD IN THE YORKSHIRE DALES

Posted on: April 23rd, 2015 by rginteriors No Comments

This week’s Richard Grafton #Yorkshirepropertyoftheweek is a charming 5 bedroom country estate near Gargrave, North Yorkshire on the market with Carter Jonas. The property boasts 25 acres of beautiful gardens and an additional attached four bedroom property, because why have one beautiful property when you can have two?!

We asked our designers to take a look at this beautiful property and comment on a few features, here’s what they came up with.

Janet, our interior designer, loved how the owners had paired traditional aspect of the home with a contemporary interior. “The conservatory is a beautiful room, the light floods in making it a lovely place to sit come rain or shine! The plants around the room, bring the outdoors in and make this room almost feel like part of the garden. How tranquil!”

Kim took the opportunity to talk about the kitchen, “The owners have opted for a vivid green in the kitchen, but a more neutral colour scheme would work just as well and the layout is great for dining and entertaining, a real hub of the home. I’d love to flip the colour balance to a smaller percentage and really enhance the AGA and the natural woods in this room. You could also add some dynamic prints which then link to patterns in the adjoining dining/garden room.”

#YORKSHIREPROPERTYOFTHEWEEK – ONE OF THE FINEST COUNTRY HOUSES IN EAST YORKSHIRE

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

The property we have chosen for this week’s Richard Grafton Interiors’ #Yorkshirepropertyoftheweek is situated in the beautiful village of Beverley, East Yorkshire, one of the region’s real ‘hidden gems’. This 5 bedroom house, which is on the market with Savills, not only has a self-contained staff flat, but also a quaint three bedroom cottage in the grounds – what more could the owner of £4.9m mansion want?

48722_YOS150040_IMG_00_0000_max_656x437

Richard Grafton, our MD, is always keeping an eye on what Yorkshire properties are on the market, and when one like this comes up it’s hard to ignore. “There is no doubt that this house is spectacular inside and out but I particularly love the foyer. The grandeur of the staircase and the pillars standing both storeys high are an elaborate feature that creates an entrance which truly does this property justice.”

48722_YOS150040_IMG_10_0000_max_656x437

Richard continues: “This bedroom has been beautifully decorated in a way that is fresh but not too modern and, as you would expect in a property of this value, it is dressed to perfection. I especially like how the structured frame of the seating at the foot of the bed ties in nicely with the rest of the French styled furniture. Adorning the room with a classic chandelier is a lovely touch of feature lighting without being overpowering.”

#YORKSHIREPROPERTYOFTHEWEEK – A HARROGATE HOME WITH COASTAL VIBES

Posted on: April 9th, 2015 by rginteriors No Comments

This week’s Richard Grafton Interiors’ #Yorkshirepropertyoftheweek is a beautiful property in our hometown of Harrogate. Nominated by Verity Frearson Estate Agents, this 3 bedroom home is a charming property providing spacious contemporary living whilst overlooking open countryside. With a passion for coastal themes, our interior designer Janet was the perfect person to comment on this lovely home.

 IMG_8643_1_large

Starting with the living area, Janet loved the choice of décor “The owners of this property have really gone to town on the neutral coastal theme. Sticking with a white, cream and blue colour palette, this space has a lovely relaxed vibe you might expect of a holiday home by the sea.”

IMG_8643_8_large

The bedroom also stood out to Janet with its relaxed, serene vibe: “I really like this room as a whole. With an air of sophistication and glamour, this bedroom has been decorated beautifully, with lovely French style furniture and is the perfect style to match the rest of the house.”

#YORKSHIREPROPERTYOFTHEWEEK – BEAUTIFUL 1920’S PROPERTY WITH FRESH CONTEMPORARY INTERIOR

Posted on: April 2nd, 2015 by rginteriors No Comments

On the market with Manning Stainton estate agents, this Richard Grafton Interiors’ #Yorkshirepropertyoftheweek is an exceptional 1920’s four bedroom ‘Arts and Crafts’ style home, based in Bramhope on the outskirts of Leeds.

The gorgeous exterior is matched by the stunning interior design which makes this property as a whole, even more desirable as a contemporary family home.

36996_MOO100227_IMG_00_0000_max_656x437

We asked our interior design team to comment on this property, and here’s what they picked out:

The large family dining kitchen caught the eye of Sarah, senior designer at Grafton Freestone “The vaulted ceiling with lantern roof is a fantastic feature in this room. Not only allowing light to pour into the space, but also opening up what is already a huge room. It can be tricky to find furniture to suit a room with such a high ceiling but the owners have made the most of the height with light coloured bespoke kitchen units.”

36996_MOO100227_IMG_04_0000_max_656x437

 

Sarah continues through to the bathroom “Not lacking in space, this large sophisticated bathroom has a lovely freestanding roll top bath as the focal point and a huge walk in shower behind. The clean lines created by the glass shower screen and floor to ceiling tiles are very much the style we go for in many of the bathrooms that we install. ”

#YORKSHIREPROPERTYOFTHEWEEK – A STRIKING YORK TOWNHOUSE FULL OF ORIGINAL CHARM

Posted on: March 26th, 2015 by rginteriors No Comments

This week Richard Grafton Interior’s #Yorkshirepropertyoftheweek is a six bedroom Victorian beauty in the historic hub of York.

On the market with Carter Jonas, this Grade ll listed townhouse is situated just outside the city walls with easy access to both local schools and amenities.

53812_YOR110319_IMG_00_0000_max_656x437

The original Victorian features make this property a real showstopper with its beautiful high ceilings and tall bay windows, complemented perfectly with a luxurious and contemporary interior.

Our interior designer Rosie took a peek through the keyhole of this property and here’s what she thought “I really like how the owners have stuck to the soft grey and white colour palette throughout the main rooms in this house. In the lounge the dark grey and purple statement sofas really stand out against the pale grey walls and carpet and the striped blinds are an elegant choice for dressing the impressive windows.”

53812_YOR110319_IMG_01_0000_max_656x437

Rosie also pointed out the bathroom “The white granite of the sink unit against the dark tiled walls gives the whole room a crisp and minimalistic appearance. The blind above the roll top bath has a complementary grey floral pattern which softens the overall look.”
