Ex MoD Site - House Conversion to Modern Standards
I have worked with Palace Green Homes on their architectural photography projects for a number of years and am always amazed by the spaces they create. In this case, they took an old MoD site with sizable plots and brought them from a poor state to clean, bright, uplifting and modern standards. These homes are now back on the market and rapidly becoming fabulous family homes for all socio-economic groups. When it came to the interior photography of the site, I opted to use natural light and let the vibrant colours from interior designers Angel + Blume do the talking.
‘The homes at this development are particularly light and airy inside, with good size rooms and generous storage space, so we felt that it was really important not to clutter them but at the same time, we wanted to show how different types of households could live really comfortably in them. We selected a mix of contemporary and mid-century styles of the furnishings for the show home to give a slightly younger, urban vibe which worked well with the modern neutral palette of paints, carpets, kitchen and bathroom fittings that have been used to refurbish the homes. We were also mindful that not everyone moving into the development would have, or would want to spend, a large budget on furnishings so we tried to be creative by mixing price friendly, high street furnishings with second hand and antique pieces and bold artwork and accessories to show how you can create a stylish, liveable interior without breaking the bank.’ Cate Burren, Angel+Blume.
