Unsurprisingly, Spring is traditionally our busiest time of the year and this year it’s certainly no exception! This year we have received an extraordinary number of enquiries from far and wide around the world! February has seen a wide variety of properties “Staged to Sell” including a new riverside development in a pretty Essex village, a contemporary two bedroom flat in the eye catching Tibbenham House project in Norwich, a beautifully charming period cottage in North Norfolk, to a stunning high end, very individual, new build on the coast! All these properties are unique, very different with each design tailored to suit the architecture, the potential target market and of course, enabling the estate agents to market …extensively!
Spring is undoubtedly my favorite season, with everything shooting to life again, we can enjoy finer weather and longer days, it is just a perfect time of the year with all the promise of Summer to come! Even though the property market now appears to be continuously busy it also seems to spring to newly invigorated life with the longer days and typically has a buzz around Spring to capture the maximum number of viewings when families are together over the Bank Holidays. There is, from our experience, always a headlong rush to be market ready for Spring and this year seems it is already exceeding expectation.
If you too, are considering a move or simply looking to wake up your interiors, here are a few of our top tips to consider; Freshen your interiors with a wake up white like Farrow and Ball’s wonderful “All White” a very ‘White Company’ shade and arguably the best and purest white. For those who love colour try chalky soft pastels and accents of sunshine yellow. Vibrant greens are very on-trend and always look incredibly fresh and full of energy, it’s a colour that works fantastically well in both contemporary and traditional homes. Keep your eyes peeled for new collections; there are some beautiful fabrics around to choose from, we particularly like Susie Watson’s snowdrop designs from their English garden range, perfect for Spring in the country.
Fresh tulips and clay pots full of spring bulbs are simply lovely for bringing the outside season in and look delightful. Given time, I love to pot up my collection of vintage china terrines with delicate paper whites, it really lifts the spirit! However, not that there is much time to wander through the daffodils at the moment, we have some incredibly exciting projects lined up, including a passive eco house in Suffolk with stunning rural views, and the most fantastic project in Belgravia!
