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!

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.”

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.”

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_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.

#YORKSHIREPROPERTYOFTHEWEEK – IMPRESSIVE CONVERSION ‘BLESSED’ WITH FANTASTIC DESIGN AND MODERN TOUCHES

Posted on: October 2nd, 2014 by rginteriors No Comments

Many thanks to Beadnall and Copley for nominating this stylish Sunday School conversion as this week’s Richard Grafton Interiors #Yorkshirepropertyoftheweek. As far as conversions go this property is a real showstopper, from the floor to ceiling stained glass windows to the private cinema room, it oozes contemporary chic. Situated off the fashionable Kings Road in Harrogate the accommodation is arranged over three floors and measures approximately 3,500 sq,ft.

65749_HAR140729_IMG_12_0000_max_656x437

Our team of designers couldn’t wait to comment on this individual and exquisite property and here’s what they had to say:

Rosie, our Interior Designer, loved the design features in the living room: “There are so many interesting and quirky features in this room and I love the retro style of the furnishings against the stark white backdrop. The interior accessories from the colourful artwork to the cowhide rug give a real sense of individuality and personality to this large room making it an intriguing and inviting space.”

65749_HAR140729_IMG_01_0000_max_656x437

The bedrooms caught the eye of Kim, one of our other interior designers: “The large glass window looking down on to the living room beneath is a fantastic way of not only letting light in, but also creating a lovely feature in the room that really makes the most of the beautiful stained glass windows at the front of the building.”

65749_HAR140729_IMG_06_0000_max_656x437

Although this property has been modernised, many of the original features including the stained glass windows, wood panelling and arches in the bedrooms have been retained. Kim continues: “Whilst renovating this property, the owners will have had to make a lot of decisions on which details they should keep to retain a balance between old and new in the house. I think they have made all the right decisions and produced a truly beautiful space.”

#YORKSHIREPROPERTYOFTHEWEEK – SIMPLE DESIGNS AND CLEVER USE OF SPACE MAKES THIS BEAUTIFUL VILLAGE PROPERTY AN IDYLLIC HOME

Posted on: September 25th, 2014 by rginteriors No Comments

This week’s Richard Grafton Interiors #Yorkshirepropertyoftheweek is a beautiful family home with four bedrooms located in the desirable village of Kirkby Overblow. Offering open plan living and four spacious bedrooms, this house also has an annex above the garage currently being used as a home office, but with the potential to be a small guest house. If you are looking for an impeccable property in a sought after village, this property has it all.

79577_HHP04577_IMG_01_0000_max_656x437

Here’s what our team of interior designers thought of this lovely home:

The open plan kitchen caught the attention of our Sarah, our Senior Designer and Kitchen Specialist: “This large open plan space with the addition of the sunroom extension is no doubt the heart of the home. The modern extension allows the light to flow throughout the room and the granite matches the graphite door frames pulling the room together in a simple and classic way.”

79577_HHP04577_IMG_02_0000_max_656x437

Rosie, our Interior Designer, loved the simple design of the children’s bedrooms

‘Clever/hidden storage in these rooms allows them to be kept tidy and clutter-free. I love the French style furniture, the gorgeous framed mirror and lovely little upholstered chair go perfectly with the delicate design of the floral wallpaper. Bunting and framed illustrations add a fun and playful element to a kid’s bedroom and can be changed and updated as the children get older.”

79577_HHP04577_IMG_23_0000_max_656x437

 

79577_HHP04577_IMG_24_0000_max_656x437

Andrew also liked the room above the garage: “Utilising this space as a home office is a great idea, keeping work and home life separate. However, it could easily be adapted to anything from a guest house to a separate playroom for the children, it’s a real extra bonus to a property to have such a flexible space away from the main house.”

#YORKSHIREPROPERTYOFTHEWEEK – A STUNNING CONVERSION WITH UNRIVALLED VIEWS

Posted on: September 18th, 2014 by rginteriors No Comments

This impressive barn conversion, situated on the outskirts of Harrogate in Pannal is this week’s Richard Grafton Interiors #Yorkshirepropertyoftheweek, with five gorgeous bedrooms, vaulted ceilings and even a home cinema, this house is truly one of a kind.

71840_MYP23959_IMG_00_0001_max_656x437

We asked our team of interior property experts to comment on their favourite features of this property and here’s what they had to say…

The open plan living area instantly drew the attention of Andrew, our interior architect and bespoke staircase specialist:

“This is a vast area to work with and the owners have done a great job of ‘zoning’ it to create separate living areas without feeling the need to fill it full of furniture. This allows the architectural features including the beautiful staircase, beams and wooden flooring to really shine through creating instant ‘wow’ factor.”

71840_MYP23959_IMG_01_0001_max_656x437

The lighting used in this property caught the eye of Karen, our interior designer: “Lighting in this house is not just a means for illumination, it is a work of art. It would have been very easy to fit some standard spotlights in the kitchen, however, the owners have chosen to install a modern chandelier, which creates a wonderful feature above the island. Spotlights have even been used beneath the staircase to highlight its beauty and prevent any dark/shadowy spots. Clever lighting like this really takes your interior to the next level and makes sure the key features of your home are really maximised.”

Our MD Richard was keen to comment on the luxury cinema room: “The bespoke cabinetry and Zebrano cladding on the walls frame this room beautifully and add an element of luxury to the space, whilst also creating useful storage. We find that a lot of customers are moving away from freestanding furniture to bespoke fitted pieces such as this that become part of the fabric of the property.

When we create pieces like this, we ensure that they not only look fantastic, but are designed with the owner’s very specific requirements in mind, this is the real beauty of bespoke furniture.”
