Grace and Favour

We caught up with Paul Lambert at Grace and Favour who shared a couple of recent show-stopping projects with us. Grace and Favour have over 30 years of interior design and build knowledge to give you the most beautiful bespoke designs in your home. Paul shared some words of wisdom about being a carpenter and also being a customer of a bespoke project:

“Life as a carpenter and business owner can be very tough but also very rewarding. Designing and building a beautiful interior scheme into our clients homes brings so many positive changes, even the smallest of updates can make a world of difference. If I were to offer any advice to anyone thinking of changes to their home it would be to ensure you have a budget in place and share this with your contractor, always allow a sum for contingency, be certain of your design, and always ensure to have the design and specification and program signed off and approved and costed before any work starts on site.”

Take a look at a couple of recent projects Grace and Favour have completed:

Grace and Favour bespoke kitchen

Bespoke kitchen

Paul and the team created a bespoke kitchen to match their client’s lifestyle and needs. Storage and ease of cooking were their key requirements and so they built the kitchen around these factors to create a truly stunning finish.

Find out more about the cost of this bespoke kitchen, the stages involved and take a look at some more pictures from the project.

Swimming pool decking

Another project Paul and the team created was this swimming pool decking to rival that of the Love Island villa!

The project involved fitting 25mm x 150mm Redwood Thermowood that was treated with an OSMO stain and anti-slip finish to ensure not only style, but practicality and longevity.
