As we get ready to open the doors at Cofton Grange later this month, Samantha Simmonds, Creative Director at Killer5, gives us a sneak peek inside our brand new Hexham Showhome.
“Opening a new Showhome is always an exciting time, especially for us as interior designers, as we get to experiment with the latest styles and trends. At Cofton Grange, we’ve really embraced the industrial look, using reclaimed wood and rough metallic tones throughout. As a trend, industrial chic is here to stay and, thanks to the stripped-back and humble materials, it can give your new home a sophisticated edge without blowing the budget.
“In the Hexham, we’ve gone for functional style with a luxe edge, combining copper lighting and accessories with neutral and navy shades in the living room, charcoal grey and reclaimed wood in the kitchen and dining room, and silver and bronze upstairs in the second bedroom. Don’t be afraid to mix rich colours and plush furnishings with raw materials to make a statement.
“Another popular trend this year, we’ve introduced typographical and geometric prints and wall art to bring the Showhome to life – including a striking feature wall in the kitchen and dining room. If you want to re-create the look, it’s a great way to showcase your personality, break up a blank wall and bring the theme of a room together.
“As it’s set across three floors, St. Modwen Homes’ Hexham design offers a flexible space for modern living so we used the bedroom on the ground floor as a study to demonstrate this. For those who work from home, having a separate study can be essential to maintaining a healthy work-life balance. In the Showhome we’ve used caged copper lighting, exposed wired shelves and up-cycled parquet wooden furniture to continue the industrial theme and provide practical office storage solutions.
“In the bathrooms, we’ve gone for a fresh contemporary feel, using white marble and copper accessories that sit perfectly alongside the luxury fixtures and fittings St. Modwen Homes includes as standard.”
