The Cartright Show Home

An elegant home for the modern family

In late August this year, we worked with one of the UK’s leading housebuilders to fit out a newly built home with an interior design to suit established and growing families. 

To appeal to the established family with teens and home-working adults, for this project we focused on creating a mature and luxurious environment that incorporated shared space and private areas for relaxation. Our team made the journey down to Willand in Devon to provide a full interior design and fit-out service.


We started by researching the local area to draw inspiration for room designs and decided to create two themed bedrooms, one with a subtle sports theme and another taking strong inspiration from the textile industry.

Blending practicality with local design inspiration, across the two bedrooms we created a chalkboard-style feature wall, a clean and minimal desk space, and incorporated themed accessories whilst aligning each design with the entire show home interior.

Throughout the entire space, our team of designers implemented a cool-toned colour palette that included a range of greys, creams, and whites, with splashes of silver incorporated through light fixtures, side tables, and ornaments.

For the ground floor, we designed a free-flowing kitchen diner interior using slightly warmer cream and light grey tones and a gorgeous chandelier that created a warm atmosphere throughout the space. 

In the living room, and throughout the home, we added depth by using wallpapers in different floral and lined patterns and metallic accessories to help enhance the cool-toned palette. 

The end result for this showhome was a sophisticated and contemporary space that accommodated family life but appealed to buyers in the market for a luxury home. 

Stylish, magnificent, inspirational...

I have recently renovated a bungalow and used Q interiors for the interior design.  I have been so pleased with the advice and support and the end result is fantastic.  I am recently widowed and Karen supported me throughout the project with advice and ideas, she went over and above her remit and I am so grateful. I love my finished home – it is so tasteful, modern and fresh.  Karen’s attention to detail is amazing and the quality of the soft furnishings is fabulous.  I would definitely recommend the company, the service has been faultless.
