In mid-November 2018 Alexander James Interiors installed a show house in Colwall, Herefordshire, for local developer Lockley Homes. The development is in the Malvern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and Karl Lockley, (joint MD) was confident that the development would prove popular. The development comprises three 2 bedroom bungalows, two 3 bedroom houses and four larger 3/4 bedroom houses, all with a Victorian-style design that fits in beautifully with the village’s established homes.
Karl’s faith was well founded, because we are delighted to announce that by the beginning of 2019 all nine properties had been sold. What a fantastic achievement for Lockley Homes and another show home success for Alexander James Interiors !
Alexander James’ brief was to create a comfortable country style design that would appeal to downsizers and the family market. The resulting show home is homely, relaxed and takes full advantage of the abundant of natural light. The colour scheme throughout the bungalow is light with neutral greys and contrasting shades of blue. Our designer commented “We have used natural wood, leather and dark metals to add textural interest, along soft furnishings and plush cushions. The inclusion of on trend geometric prints and wallpaper adds a distinctive liveliness to the scheme. The whole design works in harmony with the mid oak herringbone flooring that runs from the entrance hall throughout the kitchen and family room. It was fabulous scheme to work on, in a very picturesque part of the country.”
“Colwall is a lovely area, and well liked both by commuters to nearby Worcester and Birmingham and those seeking a beautiful area in which to retire. With our latest development, we have aimed to provide a good range of luxury homes.” – Karl Lockley Joint Managing Director
