Dreaming of Decadence in Harrogate, England
Three Victorian terrace houses on a leafy side street have been knocked together, spruced, styled and shaped into the most exciting grand dame of a boutique bolthole in Yorkshire. Located in the spa town of Harrogate, The Balmoral Hotelmaintains a rakish air of opulence, with glamour-dripping crystal chandeliers, Louis XV armchairs, ornate Venetian mirrors, and a scattering of curios and antiques. Such traditional trappings somehow fit seamlessly with the plush contemporary interiors: Designers Guild flock wallpaper, bold colours, and reupholstered red leather sofas. It’s dreamy and decadent.
