Vistry Bovis Homes
Woodlands at Barrow Gurney
Located just outside Bristol, our brief was to design a sophisticated show home for families and professionals looking for a little bit of luxury in their new home.
A glamorous yet relaxed design, rich orange and red velvets take centre stage in this Soho Home inspired show home. Layers of texture and deep wall colours add depth to neutral pieces, and statement soft furnishings from the incredible Christopher Farr Cloth headboard and Nobilis fabric footstool add drama and interest.
I wanted to create a fun and glamourous family home to appeal to Bristol buyers who wanted more space and a country lifestyle whilst still feeling connected to the vibrant city centre.
The starting point for the living room was a deep burgundy Andrew Martin Villandry Velvet for the sofa, which creates a moody and inviting place to relax. The open-plan kitchen and family area is a more informal space for entertaining, with a cocktail drinks trolley and comfy sofa to sink into.
I included Little Greene Etruria in the master bedroom to create a moody and glamourous feel. The Soho Home Allis Chandelier looks impressive against the blue walls. Bristol Zoo inspired the mural in the children’s bedroom, and the addition of the balloons is a fun nod to the Bristol Balloon Festival. In the teenage bedroom, Farrow and Ball Sulking Room Pink makes the Christopher Farr Cloth headboard fabric sing; I love it!
Adelene Billingham – Interior Designer
We appointed Andrew Henry Interiors to design and install the show home at our flagship development Woodlands at Barrow Gurney, located on the outskirts of Bristol.
We were keen to work with a local company and having partnered with them before, felt confident they would help us realise our vision for the development. The brief was to provide a classic, contemporary scheme that would appeal to upsizers from nearby, as well as those relocating to Bristol for its culture, thriving economy, and easy access to the coast and countryside.
The show home they designed hit our brief spot on! We consistently receive amazing feedback since it launched.
