Escaping to our living rooms this winter

In the cold months of winter, there’s nothing better than a cosy night in, and our living rooms are the perfect place to escape the dark evenings and bitter weather.

We’ve taken a look at some of the living rooms from developments across the country to give us a little inspiration.


In Melksham, Wiltshire, the light and airy living room of the Radleigh show home at Barratt Homes’ Sandridge Place, gives us a little reminder of summer with its small additions of red on a neutral background. The perfect boost on a grey and dark day in the winter.


Across to Stonehouse in Gloucestershire, the living room in the Ingleby show home at David Wilson Homes Great Oldbury, with its bright white decor, provides a ‘pocket of tranquility’ for a relaxing evening in.


And at Barratt Homes’ Minerva development in Exeter, the living room of the Norbury show home uses a colour palette of grey and navy for us to imagine escaping to of an evening.


It’s all dark green in the Layton show home at David Wilson Homes Goitre Fach in Cardiff, and with small gold introductions throughout, this living room has a classy, sophisticated feel.


And the design of the living room in the Moresby show home at Barratt Homes’ Madgwick Park development in Chichester, evokes a sense of calm. With a mix of dusty pinks and neutral shades, this room is an ‘oasis’ away from the bustle of everyday life.
