In the Spotlight: 25 Beautiful Homes
A couple of months ago, our founder Suzi Ellis was invited to share her stunning Yorkshire home in the October issue of Ideal Home's, 25 Beautiful Homes magazine.
Today we are giving you a sneak peak of the finished article as well as a look at the personal design style of the woman who established The English Cabinet Co.
Suzi’s home is a detached house in Huddersfield that was built in 1865. When she and her husband Richard purchased the property, they were looking for a period house with original features in a rural location.
It took Suzi just five minutes to decide the house was perfect for her family. She tells 25 Beautiful Homes: “I instinctively knew that it was right.” It did need some work though. The decor was dated and Suzi and Richard wanted to make some significant changes to bring it back to its original layout.
That they did, opening up space and bringing the house to life with a welcoming style that would stand the demands of everyday family life for them and their two daughters.
The Interior Style
25 Beautiful Homes encapsulated the interior style of Suzi’s home as ‘cool, calm and collected’. This is the result of both her and Richard’s personal tastes coming together. He is a traditionalist, whereas she prefers a modern edge. The result is a gorgeous mix of muted shades and exceptional quality that creates a relaxed and informal home.
The decor inside has been inspired by the world we live in. Suzi and Richard are always on the look out for interesting design ideas and stay in boutique hotels with unique decorative styles to inspire their interior decor. The effect is a subtle and stylish mix of modern art, antiques and contemporary accessories that will stand the test of time.

Suzi and Richard both run successful furniture businesses (Richard owns the family furniture firm JT Ellis) so the furnishings were an important aspect of the redesign of their home. In fact, it was Suzi’s disappointment at not being able to find suitable, high quality and sustainable furniture for her daughters’ bedrooms that inspired The English Cabinet Co’s very first piece of furniture, our beautiful Old Manor Collection dressing table.

Suzi was thrilled to be asked to showcase her home in such a prestigious magazine and is overawed by the positive feedback she has received from 25 Beautiful Homes readers.
