North Yorkshire

The owners of this stunning Arts and Crafts property were captivated by the classical character, period charm and idyllic setting of this grand family home. Situated on a verdant, tree-lined avenue just minutes away from the heart of the historic spa town of Harrogate, it presented the perfect framework to create a vibrant and memorable forever home for their growing family.

The Roselind Wilson Design team delighted in transforming the interior into a sophisticated yet quirky home able to meet the demands of a busy, multigenerational family with a love of art, travel and entertaining.

A traditional home for a modern family

Our client’s open-minded and enthusiastic approach to the design process, coupled with the rich architectural setting, allowed us to bring together an enchanting and characterful interior scheme that exudes effortless style and a charming authentic reflection of the homeowners.

“A home should feel like an expression of yourself. The relationships we build with clients are born of open dialogue, collaboration and trust, which allows us to explore creative ideas, push boundaries and create interiors that are very individual and special.”

The charm of this project lay in the scope to either scale up or calm the dramatic backdrop of traditional wainscoting, monolithic stone fireplaces, imposing timber surrounds, intricate cornicing and architectural detailing whilst building synergy and a seamless sense of flow from one space to the next.

Spotlight: An Ode to pink & blue

Colour played a big part in connecting the different spaces within the house. Born from the homeowners’ love of pink and blue, we sensitively extended the colour family throughout to adapt mood and ambience, from lilac and cobalt in the foyer, deep aubergine in the dining room, sultry blues and peach tones in the library to soft minks, blush and touches of navy in the master suite.

“The colour story is a beautifully sophisticated and alluring palette which works so well with the house and client’s personalities.”

We were keen to achieve a balance across the scheme that both honoured the period architecture and embraced the client’s love of contemporary art and design. In the library, we introduced a classical wall-to-wall timber bookshelf juxtaposed against paired back modern furnishings and sumptuous textural elements. We offset the traditional nature of the joinery by taking a deep grey-blue shade from floor to ceiling and colour-washing the woodwork and walls. An intricate Murano glass chandelier by Bella Figura illuminates the centre of the room, creating an elegantly refined, comfortable space with welcoming, romantic undertones.

“The overall impression is modern, but also it has character, it has heritage, it has a story to tell.”
