AUTUMN/WINTER 08 DESIGN TRENDS UNVEILED IN NORFOLK

Hopkins HomesAutumn/Winter 2008’s new interior design trends will be on show at Hopkins Homes’ brand new show home at Fairfield Park, in Costessey, Norfolk. The three storey property offers flexible living space that is shown off to stunning effect with the latest interior design, created by David Cruse.
Claire Richards, Head of Sales, Hopkins Homes, comments: “The interiors of the new show home have been designed to highlight the most fashionable colour and furnishings, without compromising on functionality. A colour palette of light pastel sage, blue, gold cream and beige has been used in the bedrooms and bathrooms, creating a calm and relaxing environment. The colours in the family rooms are bolder, with rust and orange bringing a bright, contemporary feel to the spaces. Furniture has an ethnic influence, using different types of wood throughout the property in order to complement the colour scheme.”
The property is designed for families, as the layout means that purchasers can make use of the living space in different ways to suit their needs. The ground floor comprises a spacious kitchen/utility room, with double doors leading onto a light and bright room, which previous buyers have used in a variety of different ways, including as a dining room, a snug, or a children’s playroom. On the second floor there is the main sitting room, a double bedroom and a family bathroom. To the third floor there is a master bedroom, with en-suite, and two further large double bedrooms.
Fairfield Park is arranged on tree lined avenues punctuated by green leafy open spaces and play areas. The development comprises a striking selection of two, three, four and five bedroom houses. Exteriors are built to reflect certain period elements of the local Norfolk architectural vernacular by including red and yellow decorative brickwork, buttermilk rendering, different rooflines and elevations, porches and sash windows.
Internally, each property includes a fully fitted kitchen, and purchasers have a choice of cupboards, worktops and wall tiles*, which again make their house unique from others. Bathrooms are fitted with white sanitary ware and chrome fixtures and fittings.

Norwich also boasts the country’s largest open air market, which sells a wide range of goods and fresh local produce and is open six days a week. Journey times to Ipswich are approximately 40 minutes and approximately one hour and 30 minutes to Bury St Edmunds by train. **
