Overall, we wanted to design a home where buyers could envisage living, somewhere that was inviting yet also reflected the owner’s individuality.

The newly unveiled show home has been designed by award winning interior designers SUNA, and provides interested buyers with the opportunity to picture the lifestyle of offer at Ironworks, as well as the chance explore these impressive new homes for themselves.
Rebecca Hunt, Director at SUNA Interior Design comments: “We wanted to keep the quirkiness and cultural interest of Cambridge, as we had done in the show apartment, and cater that towards families. We always imagine who the buyer will be when designing a property. For this home we envisaged a family who had acquired a selection of unique items over a number of years as we wanted the house to feel eclectic and cosy, truly reflecting Cambridge and the nearby Mill Road.”
“We imagined that the purchasers would be creative and incorporated an upright piano downstairs as well as a combined music room and home working space on the top floor. Choosing an overall colour scheme ties the rooms together and here we opted for a colourful scheme and introduced gorgeous mid green tone and punches of orange.”
“Functionality was absolutely at the forefront of our minds when creating this home” continues Rebecca. “In the living room, we placed a corner sofa and occasional chair to ensure that there was enough space for family and friends to relax. Similarly, in the kitchen space we created an informal dining space that caters for day-to-day life, but that at the same time can easily accommodate a larger crowd for entertaining.
The family space in the kitchen, has been designed to guarantee that the home has a social feel, with a sofa providing a zone for family and guests to relax whilst food is being prepared. There is also the option to use the side table beside the settee as a work station when a change of scenery is needed.”
“All of the bedrooms in this home are really good sizes” expands Rebecca. “This is evident in the master suite where we have placed a super king bed and generous amounts of storage. Here we wanted the colour scheme to feel sumptuous. The use of wood effect wallpaper, upholstery and rich burnt orange tones ensure that the room is grown up in feel whilst creating a cosy space to escape. We’ve maximised the space in the teenage bedroom, with a wardrobe, chest of drawers and a sofa too, creating a flexible hang out area. A coral coloured feature wall ensures that the room feels young whilst creating a sense of calm for when the time comes to do homework or unwind.
Overall, we wanted to design a home where buyers could envisage living, somewhere that was inviting yet also reflected the owner’s individuality.”
