Chalon has been working for a number of years with Pearson Properties, the bespoke luxury property developer.
With 20 years of experience creating beautiful, unique homes, Pearson Properties has established itself as one of the leading property development, renovation and extension companies in the East Midlands and beyond.
Chalon’s senior design consultant Andrea Hardaker, manager of their Harrogate showroom, has worked on each of the Chalon projects that have involved Pearson Properties. In this blog, she talks about their most recent successful development.
“The project involved moving the client from a long established family home to a barn which was going to evolve into a new home before their eyes, in a matter of months,” Andrea commented.
“It is difficult sometimes for clients to visualise a space before it exists and then be able to plan the interior. But with a combination of computer drawings, sketches and lots of samples to examine on site, we were able to finish the design to precisely the required specification,” Andrea said.
“The clients told me that they wanted a very efficient, uncomplicated and practical kitchen but wanted to convey the Chalon natural and homely feel at the same time. I resolved this by providing generous pull-out storage for crockery, as well as for food and pans, which means that there would be very little bending or scrabbling around in the back of cupboards. Successful kitchen design is so much about good ergonomics and thinking about how we move around and use the space in a kitchen,” Andrea concluded.
Pearson Properties renovated this barn with an abundance of natural light and exposed stone and beams.
As the client’s preference for worktops was to ensure easy maintenance, Andrea chose two different but complementary shades of Silestone – soft cream and a gentle slate green- rather than a single granite colour or wood.
Chalon’s unique hand painted finish, in their own Sage and Portland Stone paints, means this airy but gentle Chalon kitchen, with a wood burning stove, soft furnishings and the green fields beyond sits perfectly in its environment.
At the end of the project, Pearson Properties commented on working with Andrea and Chalon: “Just a quick email to thank you for all of your help and advice. Our client is thrilled with their new Chalon kitchen and your advice on the colours and layout has made it so special for them. It look great and is so practical!”
