Radley Court – Show Home

A bright and colourful design for Darren Smith Homes, with plenty of light and airy touches. Our brief was to match the name of the home style – “Zest” – so we fully embraced punchy citrus tones!

Master Bedroom

The master bedroom of this three-storey mews-style home was brought to life with a Cole and Son wallpaper in a contemporary bright yellow design. The boldness of the colour worked as an excellent foundation that we built on with similarly colourful pieces of upholstery and artwork – a striking contrast to the minimalist white and greys used across the room.

For the window dressings, we hung wave curtains made from double-width fabrics, perfect for providing a stylish solution for large floor to ceiling windows, and once again playing on the contrast of bright citrus and neutral tones. The smaller window used a simple Roman blind set on the outside to allow maximum light to enter the room.

Living Area

The living area was a truly beautiful part of the home thanks to the balcony – we wanted to create a minimal and unfussy space that was almost Scandinavian in style, and the balcony allowed us to bring in the fresh green from outside.

This made the perfect accompaniment to the bold orange used in subtle touches across the room. The small geometric design upholstered on the lounge chair worked well with similarly themed planters and vases to pull all the elements together.

Much like in the bedroom, these bright touches of colour contrasted with the minimalist whites and greys – albeit with more natural wood elements to complement the panelling on the balcony.

One of the most striking elements of the whole home is the glass staircase, which we chose to allow the light to filter into the area below, and show off the space and artwork housed there.
