Go Bold with Green and Gold in Gloucestershire

The Edenstone show home lounge at River View Garden Village, Lydney, has a timeless elegance

BOLD, confident and glamorous, the latest show home at River View Garden Village in Lydney demonstrates perfectly the broad appeal of bungalow living.

Styled in-house by the Edenstone team, the showcase property features some of the latest interior trends.

Living areas include statement-making black and gold furniture, while bedrooms feature tones of green. Throughout the property there are botanical prints on wallpaper and fabrics.

The result is a property visitors of all ages can picture themselves living in.

Sales director Adele McCoy explains: “The three-bedroom Boscombe show home at River View demonstrates the versatility of bungalow living.  From the moment visitors step inside the hallway, there’s a dual sense of welcome and wow-factor thanks to the bold black and gold console and space-enhancing mirrors.

“We’ve softened the tones in the lounge, to create a timeless, elegant room that’s perfect for relaxing in. For example, we used a subtle shimmering wallpaper to create a feature wall. The neutral sofa is offset by charcoal, gold and silver soft furnishings with a palm leaf print.”

Charcoal and pine sideboards, plus mirrored coffee table with gold legs, complete the lounge, which is at the rear of the property with French doors leading out to the garden.

Maximising the potential of the floor plan, the property features a combined kitchen and dining room. It’s fitted with a dual tone kitchen with contrasting oak and stone doors to the units to coordinate with the coastal pine Amtico flooring.

A glass dining table with grey fabric upholstered chairs complete the classic look in this room.

Styled in mink, the master bedroom has an understated glamour with elegant Parisian-inspired bedsides and dressing table with curved legs.

The mink tones carry through to the tiling in the en-suite to master.

“Green is one of the most popular shades for interiors this year and we’ve styled the remaining bedrooms at either end of the colour spectrum,” Adele adds.

“There’s bold hunter green in one bedroom, which has a striking floral feature wallpaper, green ottoman style window seat and coordinating headboard. The bedsides and lamps in this room reflect that the grey trend remains popular. In contrast, the third bedroom features a calming pale green to both the book-print wallpaper and the soft furnishings.”

The Edenstone phase of River View Garden Village offers a choice of bungalows and two-storey homes, with current prices from £224,995.

A Boscombe, like the show home, is available from £285,000.

The wider development will eventually feature some 177 new homes alongside allotments, cycle hire facilities, play areas, exercise stations and charging points for electric vehicles.

The show home and sales centre at River View, Highfield Road, Lydney, are open daily from 10.30am to 5pm. For more information call 07387 262 347 or 01291 674 800.
