Over the past week I have been on site a few times with Lifestyle Interiors at two different sites. I have been documenting this in my work experience journal however I thought I would share some photographs on this blog.
On Thursday 25th March I went to a Wain Homes site just outside of Blackpool with designers Hannah and Charlotte, where we were Installing 2 Show homes. What I enjoy about show home designing is that there is always different briefs. The two houses had completely different briefs. One was a super neutral Scandi home and the other was a bright and colourful home.
The above image is bed 2 in the scandi house. The tapestry above the bed is the main focal point and I assisted Hannah in styling this space. Designing for different developers comes with different constraints, for example Wain Homes provide home buyers with bedsides and wardrobes, therefore they needed to be incorporated into the scheme.
This is the master bedroom in the colourful house and this is definetly more my style. The room had a more hotel like look with this lovely mustard velvet wall to wall headboard, topped with antique smoked mirror.
This is the "turtle room" in the colourful house. The children's rooms are always my favourite part of the show homes. They are always so creative and sweet and this one was no exception. I wish I had taken better photos because this does not do it justice. The bed was sectioned off by show curtains and all the soft furnishings were adorable with interesting trims.
On Saturday 27th March and Monday 29th March, I was on site at a private clients property in Prestbury. As well as designing show homes, Lifestyle Interiors work with a small number of private residential projects. This project has been ongoing for a few months and I was actually involved in creating the initial boards so it was nice to see it coming together.
When visiting on the Saturday I was mainly dressing the rooms upstairs, then on the Monday I sourced items we needed to finish off the space, Including stock fabric to make additional throws and cushions from. I then revisited the home in the afternoon and finished off bedrooms and Cinema.
The three large size cushions are ones I had made up by the girls in the sewing room on the Monday. The Largest one is in a warwick fabric which matches the roman blind.
I love this snack station which houses a wine fridge, Its just what you would need for any movie night. The jars on the shelves are going to be filled with sweets too which will really finish off the look.
As you can tell from the slight mess, this room isn't quite finished but the master suite was breathtaking.
For bed 2 above and bed 3 below, I selected fabrics for bed throws/runners to finish off the rooms and I am really happy with how they turned out.
I cant wait to get back on site with Lifestyle interiors as its so exciting to see the schemes come together.
