Chalet Pleney

The Brief

This was an old tired chalet, that was in great need of a renovation, and full furnishings.

Carolyn and I worked together on the finishes and furnishing during several meetings in Morzine and one trip to London. Carolyn was based in England so needed to be informed on progress and the decision making, which we did by telephone and email a couple of times a week.  Eventually completing the chalet with a week of install, which was great fun, we did this together, with a good supply of champagne.  Making the chalet ready to be presented to the chalet company for rental.
This very large chalet is in Morzine, with capacity to sleep 24 people. A lovely modern interior, with some Mountain glamour touches.

Harrogate Apartments 2020

A couple of years later, after forming a great friendship with Carolyn, she instructed me to help with four apartments for renovation in Harrogate.  Unfortunately, Covid happened and I was unable to visit the site, but through the power of FaceTime, we had many meetings choosing furnishings and finishes for the apartments.  They are now completed and rented.

I found Suzanne through a recommendation from Darren and Sam, who own and had nothing but positive things to say. Once meeting Suzanne, I could see why and was extremely pleased with the process, speed and commitment shown.

The chalet took six months to complete for the renovations.  Suzanne and I worked together on all the furnishings and renovations from the lighting, wall and floor choices to the bedside tables.

Now I am left with a beautiful chalet that caterers for 24 people for the winter and summer seasons, which we are very proud of. Thank you again,

2020 – We had lockdown, I instructed Suzanne to help with my four Harrogate rental apartments, even though we were not able to meet, we had many online meetings to choose furnishings, fabrics and finishes for the apartments, they are now complete and rented.
