Award winning interior designer brings show home to life at at Hazel Green

November 9, 2023

We are pleased to share that we have launched our show home at Hazel Green, an exclusive collection of nine, detached 3 and 4-bedroom homes in the picturesque village of Urchfont in Wiltshire.

All homes at Hazel Green feature luxurious interiors with modern open plan living spaces, impressive German fitted kitchens with integrated appliances, stylish bathrooms and underfloor heating to add extra comfort to ground floor spaces.

With an EPC A rating, each house has been designed to maximise energy efficiency, including air source heat pumps, solar panels and smart heating controls, along with provision for electric car charging. Generously sized high-performance windows maximise the beautiful surroundings whilst also bringing a light, open feel that doesn’t compromise on warmth in the colder months.

The show home’s look was created by award-winning interior designer, David Hutton, who embraced a combination of new and enduring design trends to bring the space to life.

“There’s a growing movement towards a sophisticated style that nods to the Scandinavian design aesthetic, adding a sense of luxury to surroundings. But it remains key to create a cosy, relaxing space in which to unwind after a busy day, so in the Hazel Green show home we’ve combined this sense of modern luxury with touches such as the neutral curtains and sofa fabric to create a cosy and relaxing feel in the lounge.

“A paired back palette remains throughout the house, characterised by soft textures, shapes and colours, to create an interior that doesn’t look too ‘decorated’, meeting a desire for simplicity coupled with a space where you’d want to curl up with your most treasured objects.

“Earth tones have been big this year thanks to their calming effects and links to nature. This is a look that increased in popularity during the pandemic years and remains a firm favourite three years on. At Hazel Green we’ve incorporated this look into the principal bedroom colour scheme and through the art displayed in the remaining bedrooms.

“Similarly, people are seeking more comfort and cosiness at home in the form of painted nooks, warm wood tones and rich colourful upholstery, which is reflected in the design of the lounge and study and the choice of wood for the dining room furniture. The deep saturated blue on the panelling walls in the lounge and the built-in shelving in the study embrace the enduring popularity of blue as a colour while creating a setting that mixes well with old and new pieces.

“Above all, I wanted to create a design that blends modern sophistication with a grounding in warmth and comfort that helps visitors imagine themselves at home as soon as they step inside.”

Named ‘Winner of Winners’ in the 2021 CPRE Wiltshire Best Kept Village Competition, Urchfont is set on the edge of the Pewsey Vale and is well known for its thriving local community.

Hazel Green is close to local amenities such as the community shop and a local pub as well as the well-regarded Urchfont Primary School. There are also many nearby scenic walking and cycling routes for those looking to embrace country life.

The popular market town of Devizes is just five miles away, while direct train services to London and Exeter are available from Pewsey station, nine miles from the village.
