Look inside the 'boutique hotel' bedroom suite that's got Swanland homeuyers swooning
With a main bedroom suite that exudes all the luxury and grandeur of the very best boutique hotel, buyers are being bowled over by our show home in the village of Swanland, East Yorkshire.
The spacious bedroom in the Leamington Lifestyle show home - which boasts a walk-in wardrobe and a lavish en-suite bathroom - has plush and ornate on-trend design features.
Its aspirational decoration includes a calming colour scheme of cool stone and warm greys, with stunning pops of colour from inky blues to a warming ochre. The bed has a bold, statement headboard, deeply upholstered with a wenge wooden border, there are rich textures like velvet in the curtains and accent cushions, and opulent yet subtle metallics shine through the feature wallpaper and beyond.
“It’s the luxurious design that you would genuinely find in a boutique-style hotel and it’s this feeling we want to portray,”says Steve Jackson, sales director for Yorkshire.“Homes are a haven, that main bedroom a sanctuary for owners, and people want that element of luxury that they might previously have enjoyed only when they’ve checked in to a glamorous hotel suite.
“With our show home at Swanland Heights in the delightful East Riding, we wanted to demonstrate to customers that our homes are practical and functional living spaces, but they can be furnished as simply, or as lavishly, as they choose. It’s an example of how their next home could look, whatever their budget or lifestyle.
“The Leamington Lifestyle is a three-bedroom home on the footprint of what would normally be a four-bedroom. It’s special, with each of the three bedrooms being more spacious and having an en-suite, and that main bedroom even more so – and that is something we wanted to demonstrate at its very best.”
The show home interior was developed by our experienced design team led by the talented Alysha Alli. She incorporated the latest styles and trends forecast for this year to create a special home that looks incredible and leaves a lasting impression, while still being within reach of home owners.
“We want every customer to be blown away by our show homes from the moment they walk in,”she says,“and that’s why we go all out to impress. But most importantly we want them to feel it’s attainable too.
“We’ve been thrilled and motivated by all the current trends to showcase the layout of the Leamington Lifestyle and the stunning design-led specification choices available in the current Heritage range.
“We have drawn inspiration from classical civilisations such as Rome and Greece, and this is reflected through the lighting design and accessories with celestial orbs, fluid shaping in large accessories and accent fabrics, like scatter cushions with mosaic style prints.
“We’ve featured rich, baked colours and warm tones which leap out from a more subtle canvas, and we’ve used marble, glass and polished concrete in the furniture and accessories such as console tables, coffee tables and bedside lighting to make a statement and develop a constant theme.”
As well as the stunning principal bedroom suite, the show home makes the most of the fabulous kitchen, dining and family area that extends the width of the property at the rear, exuding style and elegance with country-style shaker kitchen units and a range of top appliances from Siemens – customers can personalise, and choose upgrades for, their homes via the My Redrow online tool.
Classical elements are chosen in accessories like a black ceramic vase and marble mortar and pestle; while the dining area is wonderfully on-trend with a glass-topped table with dark wenge black legs and matching chairs with stone herringbone upholstery.
The family space has two modern yet cosy stone sofas with sumptuous accent cushions and a painted deep grey TV unit, and the flooring throughout is a wood effect ceramic plank tile.
“The classical contemporary subject continues throughout the show home: with luxurious fabrics and beautiful, opulent colours like burnt ochre. You can see them in the separate lounge which also has a dramatic standout light-fitting with a collection of spherical bulbs,” says Alysha. “There are gold and glass coffee tables, a dull gold vase and burnished brass tones in the circular glass mirror; and large abstract prints on the walls.”
A Leamington Lifestyle at Swanland Heights, similar to the show home but awaiting the new owner’s interior styling, is currently priced from £410,950.
Swanland Heights, located in the sought-after village of Swanland on the edge of the Yorkshire Wolds, has a collection of three and four-bedroom homes currently available from £331,950. Just two miles north of the River Humber and only seven miles from the city of Hull, it’s also surrounded by unspoilt scenery and green spaces and yet the historic town of Beverley is within easy reach too.
