Renowned interior designer Richard Grafton has given us his seal of approval after his team completed the renovation of one of our sold Old Police Station Harrogate apartments.

Established in 2012, Richard Grafton and his team (RGI) boast over 100 years combined experience in interior architecture and design, having renovated a wide variety of properties to an incredibly high standard.

The RGI team worked closely with the new owners of the apartment to design a full interior scheme for the property that incorporated the original features of our fabulous conversion. The contemporary palette of greys, mushrooms and taupes created a relaxed and serene ambiance and the contemporary furniture gives the apartment an alternative style.


Richard was earnest with his praise of the old police station conversion, labelling the building “sympathetically renovated to retain much of its original character”, and his specialist team took time to bring the beautiful arched windows to life with bespoke white shutters. RGI also introduced beautiful upholstery incorporating fabric from brands such as GP & J Baker and Manuel Canavas, mixing colour and texture into this classic contemporary scheme with beautiful and timeless pieces from fine furniture brand Jonathan Charles.

Commenting on the project, Richard Grafton said: “We wanted to create something completely different for the owners of this property for what was to be their second town based home. The overall finish is modern and fresh with touches of luxe, a design that complements the character of this fabulous renovation. It’s exciting to work with clients on different properties especially when they are looking for something completely different to what they are used to. Enabling them to adopt a new lifestyle in the process is an added bonus as we know that they are going to enjoy their new space for years to come.”
