Swedish simplicity [Scotsman, The (Scotland)]
(Scotsman, The (Scotland) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Designer showhomes are impressive, but buyers often have difficulty in matching the interior look. Cruden Homes have solved the problem in their new showhome in the village of Newtongrange in Midlothian however; as furnishings throughout the three-bedroom Bonaly style house at Wester Lea have been provided by IKEA, Straiton.Hazel Davies, sales and marketing manager at Cruden Homes (East), said: "Wester Lea is proving to be one of our most popular developments, particularly with young families and couples. This was obviously an important factor when commissioning the design and furnishings for the new showhome, as we wanted to create a stylish look that would appeal to these buyers, but at the same time, be cost effective and easy to replicate."Kendal Cummings, interior designer with IKEA who styled the new showhome at Wester Lea said: "I was inspired by the fact that each main room was filled with sunlight, achieved by the use of floor to ceiling windows throughout the house".The external features of the new Bonaly look good too. The showhome is positioned at the end of an attractive row of white stone rendered three-bedroom family properties that have been specifically designed for this semi-rural location.All the homes look out on a traditional village green with footpaths, lots of green space and a small play park.Edinburgh city centre is about 20 minutes by car from Newtongrange and there are three train stations within five miles or less of Wester Lea.
