Show Home Love

Don’t you just love a show home? I certainly do, the experience of padding around a beautiful house or apartment, luxuriously appointed, softly furnished to the max…


You might be house hunting, you might be looking for inspiration or you might just be having a nosey and nobody minds!


You can imagine yourself living there – a fresh start – completely devoid of the overflowing detritus of your real life.


Somehow you know you would survive without that mountain of paperwork sitting beside your fridge.


You would be fine here with the beautiful cutlery and napkins, bedlinen and pretty knicks knacks… What more would you need?


The house depicted is from the Hopefield Park development by the Walker Group, on the outskirts of Edinburgh, near Bonnyrigg. Designed by the brilliant Carol Yates of Amabile Design, it is packed with the latest trends, superb design values and a few tricks of the trade.





The setting could not be more tranquil. People of all ages and stages are buying – young families, couples starting out and older people, downsizing, choosing to live in a new build knowing they will have almost zero heating bills. Definitely worth a look.
