The new Skibo show home has been decorated by Interior Designer Karen Wootton from The Design House in Aberdeen, using a rich sophisticated colour palette to create a sumptuous yet homely ambiance throughout. 

The 2,368 sq ft Skibo is a magnificent five-bedroom family home.  It has a stunning dual aspect living room that is light and spacious and makes a perfect formal entertaining space. The luxurious kitchen dining family room is however the star of the show. It includes a German designer kitchen with luxury breakfast bar and is fitted with a range of premium quality appliances and French doors leading out to the garden.  This room is perfect for entertaining and family gatherings and makes a very inviting heart of the home.  There is also a generous utility room on the ground floor and a versatile study, ideal for home working.

Upstairs the impressive master suite and superb second bedroom have large walk-in wardrobes, as well as luxury en-suites.   The three additional double bedrooms have oak finish built in wardrobes.  There is also a beautiful family bathroom, and all bathrooms are tiled with Porcelanosa tiling throughout.

The property is completed with a separate double garage with a lock block paved double driveway and a landscaped front garden with lawned rear garden.

Commenting on the show home Interior Designer Karen Wootton said: “I wanted to show new homeowners how colour can enhance a home and not to be scared of it. The living room has been designed with an exquisitely elegant feel featuring a series of textured wall coverings and luxurious velvet and embroidered fabrics in shades of stone, aubergine and oyster highlighted by light stone velvet buttoned backed sofas and opulent furniture pieces to create a stylish room.

“In the stunning kitchen dining family room, which is the heart of this home, the colour palettes complement each other by merging into a series of shades, layers and depths.  A backdrop of charcoal, steel and graphite greys with accents of gold provides colour combinations that perfectly marry into a beautiful luxurious space.  There is a sumptuous mix of plush, muted botanical theme fabrics and a stand-out mosaic feel feature wall that shimmers light into the room.  The rich velvet ochre sofa is complemented by rich dark grey velvet dining benches and breakfast bar stools to create a striking and delightful living and entertaining space.”

“Upstairs, the three children’s rooms add fun and excitement for the younger members of this superb family home.  The first themed room consists of a playful safari setting with green and charcoal linen wallpapers offset by a magnificent jungle theme feature wall toning in with custom zebra shades in coordinating forest theme colours. The highlight for any little one in this room is the black and white jeep-themed bed with a variety of playful quality fabric cushions to relax on and enjoy.”

Adding to this, Allan Clow, Managing Director at Bancon Homes said: “We have had a fantastic level of interest in Overton Gardens since we launched the development in January, with 23 of the 37 homes already sold off plan.  The opening of our beautiful new show home is an important milestone for us, particularly as it’s the first home we’ve opened to the public in the central belt of Scotland, so it’s a first chance for buyers to see the exceptional specification of our luxury homes.”

“With prices starting at only £374,995 and designer kitchens, quality appliances and stunning finishes included as standard we are delighted to offer buyers an exceptional quality of life with everything you could want from luxurious town and country living.”
