"I have to say when we first purchased this house I knew that I needed help, despite having a new born and two older children, I was still working full time, therefore I could not give the house the time it deserved so I reached out to Christine. Because of my work and family situation Christine was on hand to answer questions or discuss options at times most people would not even pick up the phone. Christine is so friendly and approachable in her manner that it never once felt like work. From the start Christine hit the ground running, she liaised with all the trades that were needed, and because she took the time to understand the families needs, and our style I pretty much left Christine to work her magic!
The entire family are extremely pleased with what Christine has managed to achieve in our home, everybody that visits the house is instantly ‘wowed’ by the result so far. Christine has been amazing, from helping make decisions regarding layouts right down to sourcing items such as wall art, furniture, lighting, accessories to name a few. In all the choices presented to us Christine has been mindful of our requirements and tastes. I felt so comfortable working with Christine in most cases I just let her choose for me, as I knew she would get it right.
It has been an absolute pleasure working with Christine – thank you for making our house a home!"
"I am delighted with the work, it all looks and works really well.
Many thanks to everyone, for all the hard work and effort!"
"I have known Christine for a number of years, I am a property developer but commercial so I thought when I came to build a house in the grounds of my old house it would be easy. I couldn’t have been more wrong but my wife and I rang Christine who came to the rescue thankfully.
She came on site immediately and took over the internal project management she was always very professional in the way she altered the layout in ways we had not thought about, which certainly improved the house. I cannot praise Christine enough for the very professional way she handled the challenge.
She basically arranged the floor coverings, curtains, fitted furniture and bathrooms.
Her eye to detail was second to none and her inspirational sense of style was fantastic The fact she was always at the end of a phone was enormous help when making many of the decisions. Our stock saying when unsure about something was ‘call Christine’ and still is today after 8 months in the house.
She was an absolute pleasure to work with and we cannot recommend her enough."
John and Suzy Grantham
"Christine has been absolutely wonderful in assisting me with my new house and curating a range of furniture to suit. Not only this she has helped me acquire a full houseware pack to enable me to move in and get on with my new life.
Her care, compassion and professionalism has been wonderful, working around the clock to help me furnish my new home.
I would highly recommend Christine to anyone looking to furnish their home and beyond, she is absolutely magnificent."
"The opportunity to have a new home (that was in construction) to be wholly decorated to our needs was both exciting and overwhelming.
In stepped Christine who right from the start understood how the house needed to work for us. She provided extremely timely advice and ideas, and created options that meant we have made far bolder and creative choices than we would have on our own. We love our new home, each room serving the purpose it was designed for and 2 years in wouldn’t change a thing!
Christine was throughout empathetic, fun and focused, and made the whole experience enjoyable and completed within budget.
Thank you Christine."
"I don't think we fully appreciated the enormity of the task when we decided to start from scratch in our new home. There was so much more to think about and we had no experience of interior design, just some fairly strong views at a conceptual level.
Deciding to engage Christine was probably the best decision we could have taken. Her experience and network of suppliers and tradespeople opened our eyes and minds to things that we probably wouldn't have thought of ourselves.
Christine always has ideas and suggestions that mean you think more fully about what you want from your home, and is also great at guiding you away from the less practical choices you might make!
Having her on our side throughout was a huge support and the end result is a home we are delighted with and a whole new outlook on home design!"
Hazel and Peter Tiffany
"Christine is awesome!
I initially asked for some advice on how to modernise certain parts of my home and a few months later, she has completely transformed it. Christine has amazing vision and has made once bland rooms look quite amazing.
The end result is better than I was expecting and Christine has done things which I would have never thought of. She stuck to the budget and was also great at recycling/upcycling existing pieces to reduce costs.
Every house needs a visit from Christine!! I would highly recommend."
"I came across Christine through the Houzz website and have been a very happy customer.
I had met her to discuss my dreams for refurbishment of my apartment. I can now say for certain that I would not have been able to achieve my dreams without her help.
I was anxious to start with as I did not know what to expect. Christine made the whole journey smooth and enjoyable.
The qualities that stood out were easy approachability, keeping to time lines and having great tradesmen in to complete tasks. No job was ever too much for her. She would go out of her way to ensure that everything being done in the apartment was of a great standard with great attention to details.
Although the cost feels more than you would pay if you were to do everything on your own, it took away the hassle and stress. One cannot put a price on that. She helped to procure stuff at great prices due to her accounts with most of the reputed companies.
I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a reliable, trustworthy and efficient professional."
Ms. T Singh
"Christine Yorath managed a substantial refurbishment of 3 bedrooms, a kitchen and bathrooms at Lumby Hall prior to our holiday lettings going live last year.
I have used Christine before and was very pleased with her efforts and work and this time I am delighted with the results she has achieved on a very competitive budget.
Her services being exemplary and all delivery times quoted have been met. I would whole heartedly recommend Christine to anyone"
"Whilst writing I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for the way that you are responding so clearly and quickly to the queries as and when they arise – it is a most refreshing change!!"
Developer Of New Build House
"We used Christine as a Consultant for two of our developments - Harewood Villas in Harewood, Leeds and Biba House, York . Christine reviewed plans and layouts to see if they could be improved or maximised and worked with the M&E designer to ensure that the lighting scheme and specifications were suitable and appropriate. She then wrote up the specifications to ensure that all of the “touchy feely” visual things worked such as the colour scheme, the finishes, the kitchen design and specification and the bathrooms. She also ensured that all costs were within the budget and she attended all the site meetings and became a point of contact for the Site Manager and other associated professionals.
Christine was also involved in the marketing of Biba House and she brought added value by increasing the specification to include such things as programmable lighting, steam ovens, TV’s in the bathrooms, sensor lighting for night time in bathrooms etc and whilst there was an extra cost to this, we saw a really big increase in the GDV over what was initially forecast.
Harewood Villa’s were another example of where the specification was too low to achieve the sales prices we wanted to achieve so she revised the specifications and the layouts resulting in them all selling for top dollar which is very impressive taking into consideration we were just coming out of recession.
We have also used Christine’s services for fitting out our show house at Black Swan Yard in Helmsley and two show apartments at Cocoa Suites in York which we were delighted with. We gave her our budgets and left the choices to her and as usual, Christine kept to the budget and did a marvellous job.
We will always use Christine for our developments because we know we can rely on her to provide excellent, efficient, very friendly service and she is a pleasure to work with."
Developer, Raven St John Limited
"Christine ran the full house redevelopment project from start to finish to snag jobs. She liaised with the surveyor and planning, organised the builder, the contractors and the suppliers and ensured the project moved at a steady pace. Once the extension was built, Christine also advised on the "look and feel" of the project and on the type of materials, fixtures and fittings, the finish and the detail/accessories that should be used to ensure a quality finish.
I look forward to the next project."
Will Khammo, Private Home Owner
"After having purchased Howley Hall Farm buildings for a Development project, Pat and myself, decided it gave us the ideal opportunity to create our own dream house, along with three other detached properties. Not having undertaken anything like this before we were delighted to be introduced to Christine.
With her professionalism and keen eye for detail we believe we have achieved everything we could have wished for and turned our house into a fabulous home.
Christine gave us the confidence to do things with the property that we would probably never have attempted.
We would have no problem in recommending Christine to anyone who desires that little bit extra, and be very confident she would create what is required as she has done for us."
John Winn/Developer and private home builder
"I was introduced to Christine through her son Jordan. After our initial meeting I was already confident in Christine's approach.
Following a site visit and my input not being the most informative, Christine then came back with a plan for the whole interior of the house and an estimate of costs.
I was then inundated with any and all the potential finishings to agree prior to any purchase. I did not have to get involved in anything else and with a very tight deadline, I was handed over a property on time and one that was finished way above my expectations.
Definitely will use again and do/will recommend."
Brendan Barrett/private home owner
"Professional from start to finish. From the first consultation Christine knew exactly what I needed doing and I just left it to her and her team and the outcome was better than expected. The job was completed in quite a quick time scale as well. Would use Christine again in the future."
Nick Dee Property investor/Landlord
"My company recently had the pleasure to work with Christine Yorath Design staging a model home at our new residential development, Ardsley Falls, Wakefield. Within an extremely tight deadline, the design team was professional, creative and stylish. The project was delivered on time and on budget. Christine was easy to work with, understood our expectations with relatively little direction and had great attention to detail. I can highly recommend Christine Yorath Design, with confidence, for any project large or small."
"From a mini refurb of a city centre apartment to achieve a higher rental income, to turning a house into a home, Christine's service was perfect. I used the idea book on Houzz and Christine's experience and professionalism turned it into reality. Highly recommended!"
"May I first say what a pleasure it was to work with Christine ,Christine was very professional in her approach to my project and she was a great communicator and very informative in all aspects during the project .She was so charming and help full in all the meetings we had so I have no hesitation in highly recommending Christine and her company for any project both large and small."
"We are very happy with the work that you did on the place, and are looking forward to living here in the years to come"
Clarence Dock Apartment Owner
"I have to say that you are shit hot at your job! I love working with you"
"The house looks wonderful, many many thanks for what you have done, you have achieved a five star look and finish at a very competitive price. I would recommend you to anyone and please refer any one you like to me."
Liam - Owner of Lumby Hall
"We overhauled our recently purchased house, including flooring, decorating, shelving, doors, lighting, and curtains. The tradesmen Christine works with are professional and do an excellent job. Christine herself is very helpful with helping you make decisions, hunting down the flooring/lighting/curtains you're after, and is extremely responsive by email. i cant imagine working wth anyone better."
"Omg you really are the best!!!!!
Really really pleased with it thank you so much xx"
Clarence Dock Apartment owner
"Following a hasty buy to let purchase of a somewhat run down two bedroom flat Christine Yorath’s Company was commissioned.
Christine’s brief was to turn the property into one of the more attractive residential rental venues in central Leeds, with the object of attracting a very high end monthly yield.
Speed was of the essence, but not at the expense of quality and with only two weeks to complete the work, many refurbishment teams would have fallen short of the mark.
I am delighted to report that not only was the flat completely refurbished, decorated and furnished along with a variety of on-line audio-visual installation updating, but it was dressed to the last knife and fork to a standard that moved me to want to live there myself!
All this was accomplished within the time frame set and a contented tenant is now well ensconced."
"Dear Christine, Good news, our tenant moved in on Friday. He loved the interior and his main question was whether everything could stay.
The feedback from Cluttons was very complimentary. Even Victoria (the sales agent we bought it off) snuck up to have a look having heard how great it looks.
I thought I’d get back to you now that it’s out of our hands. Sadly we only got to stay there briefly (twice)."
Abelines and Lucy
"We bought our house at the build stage, so we could have a say in the build. We got introduced to Christine Yorath to help us with the design. I always thought house design consultants tended to be a bit wacky with their ideas and didn't really listen to their clients needs. But with Christine it was the total opposite, she is so experienced at her job. She gets to know you as people beforehand, your likes, dislikes and how you live.
Christine was with us from start to finish, which was a long journey being such a big project. We had many problems along the way with builders etc and she would solve them instantly. She made it so much easier for us, she certainly knows how to get the job done, so professional at what she does. Her experience is phenominal. I would have an idea of what I wanted and she would take it to another level and more.
I would highly recommend this lady, she worked so hard for us and was there every minute of the day. I had a basic idea of what I wanted my dream home to look like and she organised, designed, advised, ordered on every detail for the whole house. A pleasure to work with."
"From the moment I met Christine I knew I could have full confidence in her to design and refurbish my flat. She was full of exciting ideas but always ensured my ideas and opinions were taken into account. My flat was taken from bare brickwork to the lovely stylish home I now have, all within 7 weeks. Christine managed the project and met with her team on a regular basis. The guys who worked on the project were fantastic, starting early in the morning through to the evening, there was always someone (often numbers people) working to complete the project on time and providing a high standard of workmanship. I have no hesitation in recommending Christine Yorath Design to you."
"Christine really got to know my Mum and her tastes, and she came up with some really clever and bright ideas.
We certainly put her under pressure time-wise but she managed to do the complete job within the almost impossible time frame, without affecting the quality of workmanship, dealing with any issues along the way"
"Christine totally transformed my riverside apartment and not only added capital value but the rental income increased from £750pcm to £1500pcm, splendid!"
"Many thanks to YOU and your team. I know it's been a long process with hick-ups here and there (and they are to be expected), but we are so happy with the results. The function of our house has changed significantly and it looks so much better. You have had so much patience, kindness and professionalism helping us through this process. We really really appreciate everything you have done."
Nadia and Colin
"Can't tell you how delighted I am with all you have achieved and in such a relatively short time frame. The flat far exceeds my expectations; it is absolutely fabulous."
Elaine Goodrich ~ Headingley Leeds
"Having worked with Christine and the staff at Revamp (including Jennifer and Barry) I can honestly say that they all acted totally professionally and I have already recommended the company to a friend.
Being a single person working full time it's important to be able to trust tradesmen going into your property and I was given this assurance by Christine who was always at the end of the phone to answer any queries.
The whole team made the refurbishment of my property hassle free and although I was dreading the process it was made a lot easier knowing that I was working with such professional people who on the whole have followed up promptly with any problems that I've experienced since moving back.
I would highly recommend Revamp and will keep hold of their number just in case I move again."
Brigid ~ Moortown Leeds
"Following a recommendation we contacted the Revamp Team. A detailed proposal was provided, giving a full breakdown of costs and a renovation schedule that fitted around our working pattern. Revamp ensured that the work was carried out according to the agreed time scale, and was of a high standard, and importantly within budget.
The design and planning process for the interior was made easy by the expert knowledge of Christine; she gave practical solution options for each room. The attention to every detail ensured that the finished result was first class.
We would certainly use the expert services of Revamp again and are happy to endorse the professionalism of Revamp."
M & S Coupe ~ Menston
"Thanks for doing an absolutely amazing job on the flat....it was hard leaving there and letting others enjoy it!! Many thanks again - I'm more than happy to recommend you and work with you in future..."
