The development offers the best of both town and country. A quiet and quaint rural life awaits you, with all of the amenities and connections you’d expect of a larger town.

When it comes to commuting, this idyllic village is just 14 miles away from the centre of London and 10 minutes away from the M25 giving you easy access onto the M1 and beyond. For families who’ve got their eye on top schools, it’s also a stone’s throw away from Haberdashers’ Aske’s School, considered one of the most prestigious independent schools in the country.
New i.d was commissioned to provide two show homes, The Studland a 3 bedroom house and The Berrington, a four bedroom house.
Rene Pacquette the designer of The Studland said “The brief for the three bedroom show home at Harperbury Park was to create a vibrant and bold space with botanical references which targeted young families. The majority of the scheme was inspired by nature, in terms of colours, textures, fabrics and prints. Comprising of various shades of greens, browns, blues, and wood finishes creating consistency throughout.
I chose various focal points within each room, including the leopard wallpaper in the children’s room and the bold deep green plush sofas in the reception. Which are just a few examples of the various vibrant and striking wallpapers and statement furniture pieces used throughout to create a lasting impression.
Even though the property was aimed at young families, Bloor homes asked for some specific items which allowed potential buyers to visualise the space for their own particular needs. For example, in the toddler’s bedroom I was asked to use a tepee bed instead of cot, which shows the versatility of the space, and further creating focal points within the design.
All the dressing and accessories were carefully selected to further demonstrate how the space would be used with the target market in mind, while creating a homely environment. Using a variety of bright contrasting colours and plenty of greenery to balance the natural warmth and further demonstrate the botanical theme.
