We hope you enjoy this third post in a four-part blog from our fabulous guest blogger, Hartleys Bedrooms in Skipton, as part of our exciting Christmas collaboration.

“With our business aims and ideals bringing us closer together, Alexander’s and Hartleys Bedrooms have even more in common with our love of stylish interiors from the classics through to the modern-day.

“With the building’s rich and eclectic history, Alexander’s enjoyed a glorious renovation with its glamorous interior decorated in decadent walnut and brass, emulating in parts the Art Deco movement. Impressive too is the design-driven canal-side terrace with its inviting rustic vibe suited equally for a hot summer’s day as a winter’s one with all the wonderfully warm trappings of a stylish après-ski location; capturing the snug, cosy feel during Alexander’s pop-up Off Piste season. And always with a delicious contemporary menu on offer and a tasty fondue to share!

“At Hartleys we are also proud to show off our wide range of design options in our bespoke furniture collection – from the neo-classical intricacies and ornateness of pilasters and columns with lacquered finishes, right through to today’s contemporary sleek, Continental styling. Bridging the gap between the traditional and modern, designs such as Shaker are versatile classics, providing a flexible canvas for a more or less contemporary bedroom or home study design.

High white gloss to put a shine on your Christmas

“Most popular are the minimalist designs with their no-frills vibe for a streamlined and uncluttered appeal, accentuated by dramatic gloss finishes or more subtle light veneers. Both hand and spray-painting are available options for an exact match or contrast with existing décor.  From a double wardrobe in a guest bedroom to a complete fitted study or master bedroom, our expertise is designing a bespoke storage solution, unique to you, your space, and your ‘stuff’!
