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.
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.”
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!”
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!”
