Interior designer Q&A: Priory View, Finchale

March 2024


We recently opened the doors to our Masterton and Sanderson show homes at Priory View in Finchale, both beautifully styled by Abode.

We caught up with Jon, Design Director for Abode to find out more about the inspiration behind the interior design of these striking new homes.

Q: What was your inspiration for the styling of these homes?

A: We wanted to have a clear look for both homes, but for both schemes to be modern, fun and relevant to customers.

For the Sanderson, we wanted a design led interior for a slightly younger market. We have a grey base for this home and there are pops of forest green and accents of black and white.

The Masterton we saw as a more established family home. We wanted it to be softer and more grown up, but still fun. We introduced an accent colour of Ochre to warm up the neural tones that run throughout the home.

Q: Have you followed a specific scheme with the kind of furniture used?

A: We wanted to ensure both homes looked different to appeal to different styles and tastes. The Sanderson has cool, modern pieces with touches of stainless steel. The Masterton has warm walnuts with touches of brass to make it feel timeless and homely.

Q: Which room was your favourite to dress?

A: My favourite room is the kitchen/living/dining room in the Masterton. You can just imagine yourself living in that space as it’s so functional. The kitchen is great, it has a huge breakfast bar and the dining table with the banquette seating just illustrates how this would be the heart of the home.

Q: Which show home was your favourite to dress?

A: The Sanderson. It’s modern, cool and design led; we had lots of fun finding furniture and accessories. The wallpaper in the WC is amazing, it’s a collaboration from Arte and Moooi and is a jungle forest theme. When you walk into the smallest room in the house you are blown away by the eccentric wallpaper!

We think you’ll agree, the interior design of these homes is beautiful! Why not visit us and see these exceptional homes first-hand? You can book a safe, 1-2-1 appointment on our website, or by calling our Sales Executive.
