Furnishing that doubles up as art is new interior design trend

Bespoke high end furnishings which double up as works of art, complemented by a fresh colour palette are the latest trends in interior design, according to Suna Interior Design, the experts behind the stylish interiors at Generator Groups’ recent riverside development, The Bridge, in Norwich.

The design team at Suna Interior Design focused on creating a home for contemporary minded downsizers and affluent couples when creating the interior scheme for one of the development’s five penthouses. Proving popular, the exclusive collection of homes is attracting buyers seeking a modern, stylish home that is in close proximity to the cultural hub of the city centre.

While the development’s white, geometric exterior is inspired by renowned artist, Mondrian, the interior is strongly inspired by the homes’ surroundings. There are references to nearby galleries, museums and cathedrals which can be seen in the chic palette of purple and berry tones, and the bespoke artwork that is featured throughout. The nature-inspired trend for greenery witnessed at the Paris and Milan interior design shows earlier this year also influenced the designers’ decision for green tones and physical plant references that bring the space to life.

Prudence Forde, senior interior designer at Suna Interior Design, said: ‘In a chain driven culture, the desire to diversify and stand apart is apparent, particularly in interiors, and our own dwellings are no exception. Potential home buyers are looking to bring unique experiences home more than ever.

‘Personally, one of my favourite features of the penthouse is the interlocking headboard in the master bedroom, which is a piece of artwork as much as a functional headboard, and gives the room a distinctive identity. I also really like the bespoke paintings in the living room, which are a nod to the nearby galleries, and the sculptural copper pendant light in the second bedroom.’

Cleverly designed to optimise space and natural light, the penthouse apartments include open plan living areas, large windows and private balconies; many of which offer picturesque views over the tranquil River Wensum and the city’s skyline. Finished with a high quality specification, luxury features include timber engineered flooring, fitted carpets and sleek designer kitchens and bathrooms. Integrated appliances and lighting perfectly balance crisp functionality with high end design. Many buyers can benefit from secure, under croft parking, and all residents can enjoy a communal podium garden.

Edward Orr, director at the Generator Group said: ‘Suna Interior Design really has gone above and beyond to make sure the interiors reflect the lifestyle and aspirations of our buyers. With this in mind, the penthouses are designed to offer modern living in a prime setting. The Bridge is one of the most impressive and newest riverside developments currently available in the city, providing an opportunity for buyers to be at the forefront of a new era. With just five available, we would urge anyone interested to come and view our show penthouse to see for themselves’.

The Bridge is ideally located just a short walk from Norwich’s bustling city centre with its wide selection of shops, restaurants and leisure amenities. Norwich Train Station is also just a seven minute walk away, making this location particularly convenient for commuters. Good local road links include the A11 and the A140.

Penthouses are available from £449,000. Help to Buy is available on all apartments priced up to £600,000. For more information, visit www.thebridgenorwich.co.uk or call Bidwells on 01603 662665.
