We were delighted to work with @parkdevelopments to create a woodland inspired show home. See below for our thoughts and ideas on how we brought it together…

The beautiful original gates greet you as you arrive to the scheme .

Our concept for the 4 bed house was relaxed chic. Lots of texture and muted tones, with extra injections of deep colour in the bedrooms.

The large living, dining and kitchen zone benefitted from being able to connect or close off dependant on mood.

The fresh yet warm contemporary O’Connors kitchens open to a relaxed seating and generous dining area. Tone from the living flowed from creams and soft blues to cooler whites and our favoured sea green colour.

Textural elements such as the grass cloth to the walls and nobilis fabric to the window bring character to the powder room blending in seamlessly with the rest of the homes interior

In the generous master bedroom we  leaned into the woodland theme with the beautiful Cole and Son feature wallpaper.

In our raspberry and lemon themed bedroom we blended functionality with fun.

Single bedrooms can be tricky, however a well chosen wallpaper and blind can really bring it to life!

Glencairn Gate is notable not just for its energy-efficient new homes designed by @omahonypike Architects but also for its mature setting: a pedestrian path lined by lime trees leads past the houses from Murphystown Way to Woodland Park, a steeply forested area of mature trees – open to the public – that has a viewing point over it. A pergola at the end of the lime tree walk is a nod to the style of Glencairn House, hidden behind high granite walls built by Park Developments.
