INTERIOR DESIGN

Graham has an artist’s sense of colour and texture and an exceptional, highly imaginative aesthetic which takes note of the latest design trends without being driven by them. He begins each project with an in-depth consultation with the client to fully understand their needs, desires and lifestyle, elaborating on their ideas, and incorporating them into the final design concept.

Graham’s services can include any or all of the following, depending on the scale of the project: 

Designing new room configurations: Graham will conceptualise your space in new, practical and deeply creative ways, providing architectural plans and ensuring a harmonious fusion of form and function. 

Assessing existing architectural plans, and making ingenious and practical suggestions that will really make the most of your space.

Suggesting and sourcing all windows, doors, and flooring, drawing on his tried-and-tested team of craftsmen and suppliers, and suggesting ideal materials, placement and designs.

Designing and sourcing kitchens and bathrooms: Graham’s expertise at combining the aesthetic and the practical is nowhere more evident than in his inspirational designs for kitchens and bathrooms.

Designing all aspects of the interior decoration, from the overall concept right down to each rug and cushion. Graham’s flair for colour and fabric and his passion for getting each detail just right will bring out the beauty in your living and working spaces. 

Designing gardens and balconies, from the selection of plants and pots, to the perfect furniture and lighting for your gardens and chill-out zones. 

What our clients say:

"Our home is looking so much better thanks to the Graham ‘touch’! I was always wary of working with a designer as I felt my home would be designed for me, but it has been the reverse. Graham is very collaborative and we have had great fun. I have learnt a lot and am thrilled with the results. I couldn’t have done it without him and yet I feel I have played a part. The house looks great and you can see the rooms which have had Graham’s influence."

Lesley H., London

"Graham has done various interior design jobs for me over the years, from large to small. He has always impressed with his professionalism and creative approach; providing solutions that are not only functional and look great, but are finished on time and within budget. He is also a lovely person - I can't recommend him highly enough."

Suzanne W., Barcelona

"Graham has a great eye, a friendly and collaborative manner and has produced some superb design results for us over the many years we have worked with him."

Liz E., London

"Graham coordinated the conversion of our flat in Barcelona, he inspired confidence, he managed to make it feel that all the things that make our flat so lovely were our own ideas, when in fact Graham had directed us to many of them."

Alison B., Barcelona

What our clients say:

"I was stuck with ideas for my new kitchen. I had a sense of what I wanted - but no clue about how to achieve it. Then Graham stepped in. After carefully evaluating the space, he chose colours I hadn't even considered to create a gorgeous, harmonious place for eating and relaxing. He's a gem!"

What our clients say:

"I didn't know shopping could be this fun! Graham took me to a host of antique markets, design stores, and vintage shops that I didn't even know existed after more than a decade living in Barcelona. We are absolutely thrilled with the results. He has an unerring eye for design and a real passion for detail. (Who knew that there were so many different kinds of handle?!) And the coffee and wine breaks were just the icing on the cake!"

What our clients say:

"So pleased with my new flat! Graham's advice from the beginning was invaluable: he has a great talent for choosing suitable colours and furnishings, and a wide knowledge of where to find them. Above all he has an instinctive understanding of his client's likes and dislikes, and is keenly interested in every project he undertakes. Without his input (and Yorkshire sense of humour) I would have made some expensive mistakes. So, great value for money."

PROPERTY CONSULTANCY

Graham has been helping clients find their dream homes in Barcelona for more than a decade. His unparalleled knowledge of the market and excellent connections ensure that he can take the pain out of property searches. Most of all, his ability to conceptualise how spaces can be transformed means that he sees potential that others miss. 

Graham and his team can prepare a carefully curated selection of properties for you to inspect at your leisure, in the full knowledge that they meet your requirements. He personally visits these properties, and provides a full assessment of each one so that you won’t waste any time. 

He is also available for full- or half-day consultations, in order to provide you with an overview of the market, an explanation of the purchase process in Spain, and to help you select exactly the right neighbourhood for your requirements.

 Once the purchase has been made, he can also undertake property renovations if required.

He has an excellent relationship with a team of independent specialists, including English-speaking lawyers and agents, so you can be sure that your property purchase is smooth and worry-free. 

 

What our clients say:

"Graham was a huge help to us in finding our first home in Barcelona. Although one can look at the home-sites online there's no substitute for someone actually on the ground & who knows the city. He was also first rate in helping us source furniture & all house accoutrements once we arrived. The other nice thing is that it's always FUN working with Graham!!"

Julie P., Barcelona

"Graham took all the pain out of searching for a property by visiting them in advance and drawing up a list of 'possibles' for us to look at. He took us round the properties and made sure that we could see the pros and cons of them and the surrounding neighbourhood - he also has a very good feel for what represents value for money."

Peter M., Barcelona
