Chapel Gate Cromford Road
Chapel Gate on Cromford Road, Aldercar is situated just on the border of Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire, offering easy access to both counties. The surrounding towns include Langley Mill, Heanor and Eastwood. The location of the development offers the benefits of city living as well as being in the countryside with the Peak District on the doorstep.
The plot offers 2, 3 and 4-bedroom houses which our expert team have or are in the process of decorating. Here, you can see The Milton, which is a three bedroom, and The Fairfield, which is a four bedroom property. These houses could give you inspiration for the type of wallpaper, colour schemes and accessories that you can have for your own home, regardless of when they were built.
One of the first noticeable things is how easily the colours transition throughout the spaces in both show homes. This creates a natural flow between the different living areas, resulting in a unified feel. Let’s have a look at both The Milton and The Fairfield in more detail.
In the kitchen the walls are neutral and the colour scheme is created with the accessories. The glass table doesn’t detract from the light and airy space, instead, the green upholstered chairs with contrasting coloured legs add even more colour to the room. The style of the room is modern, which ties in with the sleek kitchen units.
In the living room bold tropical patterns are teamed with a neutral colour scheme. The wallpaper brings a fun pattern into this living space whilst the earthy muted colour of the carpet, sofa and armchair resonate understated and functional Scandinavian influence. The sofa is decorated with cushions inspired from the colour palette of the wallpaper.
The dark green colour of the main bedroom creates and opulent feel. Darker colour schemes can create a sense of privacy and intimacy. The silky finish of the wallpaper adds a sense of luxury, whilst the geometric patterns add texture. The lighter coloured bedding and the other neutral tones on the walls achieve contrast which results in a balanced design.
Bedrooms 2 & 3
The design of the second bedroom centres around the leafy plant patterned wallpaper, which similarly to the living room, also follows the large pattern trend. Soft hues, natural fibres and whites share the limelight with bold colours, resulting in a tranquil environment.
In the third bedroom the bold patterns are absent, and the walls are painted in an airy pale blue. In this space the velvety fabrics are the statement, accompanied by more industrial shades of metal such as the antique nickel bedside tables and sideboard.
Except for the wall in the dining area, the walls in the Fairfield kitchen are white shade, which is an easy and versatile choice. The wallpaper in the dining area has a Dandelion Pappus pattern which is mirrored by the blinds and curtains. The metallic accents created by the chair legs, the mirror, breakfast bar stools and the lights add up to a muted Art Deco feel which continues in the living room.
In the living room, the wallpaper has a soft sheen to it, which almost makes the subtle flower pattern invisible. However, throughout the day the wall catches the light beautifully, creating different shades of muted colours. The velvet sofa coupled with the mirrored sideboard offer contrasting textures both adding lightness to the room in a different way.
Upstairs in the main bedroom, the delicate flower-patterned wallpaper accompanied by the sturdy and minimalist furniture create a French country feel. The geometric patterns of the cushions and the silky fabric of the bed spread along with the glass bottomed side lamps and the mirror add accents of Art Deco and glamour.
Bedrooms 2 & 3
The slightly French country feel carries on into the second bedroom, whilst the third bedroom boasts a bold geometric wallpaper creating a modern design. The loudness of the wallpaper is expertly balanced by the minimalism and simplicity of the surrounding furniture. Similar to the living room the fourth bedroom has a stronger Art Deco look, where the darker colour of the wallpaper is toned down by lighter bedding. Metallic accents and mirrored furniture fortify the look.
