The Coniston Show Home

A classic show home with a twist

In August, we worked with a major UK housebuilder which has been designing stunning new builds and creating communities across the UK since the 1970s. 

During this project, we designed a beautifully classic showhome interior focusing on neutral luxury and conducted a fit-out of all furnishings to appeal to a range of clients, from first-time buyers to families looking to settle down into their dream space. 


For the Coniston show home our interior designers were able to incorporate the classic Q Interiors style, using gold, creams, and black.

This neutral colour palette helped to ensure the room designs remained cohesive and provided a base for us to add small bursts of colour throughout the home.

We began this particular process by sourcing various statement wallpaper samples that used geometric shapes, straight lines, and ombre effects that could be placed on feature walls throughout the house. Then we began the search for decorative pieces such as contemporary artwork, a range of statement lighting fixtures and lamps, and neutral soft furnishings to help pull our final design ideas together.

We built from this mood board of neutral classic colours and patterns and created a fresh look that appealed to many buyers. The soft warm colours provided the perfect background for personal trinkets of any kind to be included.

To finalise this show home design we incorporated an element of fun by designing and hand-crafting a bespoke headboard and cushions for a 101 Dalamatians-themed child’s bedroom.

The final result of the Coniston show home was a warm space with the classic Q Interiors style that appealed to a range of clients in the local community.

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.
