Behind the look of our brand-new Town House show home in New Islington
Our interior designer, Rachel Thomas, reveals her personal highlights, style secrets and the story behind styling the home mid-pandemic.
Delivering a show home during a lockdown doesn’t come without its challenges.
There was no opportunity to nip to Ikea or to pop to Homesense to pick up those finishing touches.
You couldn’t take the paint sample with you to buy bedding or spend an afternoon searching Manchester’s amazing independent shops for hidden gems.
Instead, I spent this project tracking down parcels, directing delivery drivers to the show home location and scrolling the internet with every search term ending ‘next day delivery.’
But against all odds – we made it work.
Here are my Town House show home highlights – including the must-have brands and products you need to know about to recreate the look in your space.
