The brief to Bournemouth’s SMB Interior Design from the client – a leading Dorset estate agent representing London developers – was to create a show home apartment in a new development (under construction) in Ferndown, Dorset. The target market was identified as being first time buyers and buy to let investors looking to rent to young professionals and flat sharers.
Shona kept the design clean and simple, using Retro Scandi style furniture popular with the fashion conscious younger market, complemented by funky ‘in vogue’ bright orange and lime accent colours in the wallpaper, soft furnishings and accessories.
At the open house weekend, which was held once staging was completed, five apartments were sold thereby creating an immediate return on investment of 76:1.
“I just wanted to say personally how impressed I’ve been with your service. It really has been a pleasure to deal with someone who is so efficient and reliable. Not only did all your quotes come in quickly and professionally but they were clear and with the imagery were very easy to make a decision on. Your designs were modern and fresh without trying to overspend for the sake of it. Then the work you did was so quick and top quality, exactly what we wanted and had hoped for. Huge thank you for getting it all done on time and with absolutely no hassle to us” – Lyndon Le Boutillier, Managing Director, Hearnes Estate Agents.
