Get the look: Contemporary style with a warm welcome

Stepping through the doors into any of the stunning new homes at Readers Park in Ballyclare, you are immediately struck by a sense of light and space.

The large windows allow light to flood through every room, bouncing off rich fabrics, bold accent colours and high quality furnishings in a celebration of luxurious, contemporary living.

The interiors, designed by noted interior designer Caroline Fletcher, are a mix of the modern and traditional, complementing beautifully the architectural style and features of each of the 12 different house types which have been thoughtfully designed by award-winning architect Des Ewing.

Caroline has fashioned a comfortable yet sophisticated feel in each home, making them both inviting and stylish. Enhancing the natural light which floods through each room with a palette of muted colours, she has created a feeling of depth and interest. An injection of accent colours enlivens without overwhelming.

Soft furnishings are used to add texture and pattern. Soft, tactile designer fabrics such as velvets, silks and brocades have been chosen to tie the rooms together and create a welcoming, comfortable atmosphere.

These homes are about enjoying life — creating a lived-in feel without losing the luxurious touches that can make a strong statement.

Achieving a look that is both stylish and fit for family life is challenging, but by working with the features of your home and choosing a palette of colours and fabrics that mirror your lifestyle and texture it can be done.

The seven show homes at Readers Park are available to view by appointment from Monday to Saturday. To book your private one-to-one viewing, just visit
