East Barn Private House – Malham, North Yorkshire
Malham, North Yorkshire
Bowman Riley provided interior design and decoration on East Barn, a converted barn into a high-end residential property. To create a modern family home, we worked closely with our client to deliver the brief from initial concept proposals to final site completion and styling.
The interior spaces were reviewed and an internal re-configuration was required to open up the kitchen area and living space to create an open plan form of living. This then allowed us to re-evaluate each floor’s layout to better suit the client’s requirements. This included the reconfiguration of all bathrooms, the addition of a dressing room, new layouts of internal spaces to create a games room and a cloakroom WC.
We created detailed demolition and construction plans for each floor, including the removal of an existing chimney, an internal extension of the kitchen and subsequent layout for the family room. We provided interior design for all rooms, including general arrangement plans showing furniture placements, detailed lighting and electrical designs with specifications of decorative light fittings and joinery proposals for each room. This facilitated a detailed pack provided for the contractor to deliver on site.
The interior renovation and fitted joinery needed to be sympathetic to the style of the building as well as feel modern to suit the young family’s aesthetics and requirements. Each room was reviewed with regard to the client’s requirements for storage and use of space to ensure the best layout and overall design.
In addition to the interior design on East Barn, we also provided thorough interior decoration proposals for each room, specifying furniture and fittings, window treatment specifications, cushion and trim detailing, artwork proposals down to the frame specifications. This process was worked up alongside the build on site to ensure the client received a turnkey solution.
Our client said:
“It was a pleasure working with Laura on the interiors for our home renovation project. She took the time to understand our style and expertly guided us through the whole process, advising us on everything from paint colours and lighting design to furniture and soft furnishings. We couldn’t be happier with the end result, which is a home where the interiors are tailored perfectly to our needs and tastes.”
