The media has been abuzz all this week with Gannon Homes’ new Millers Glen scheme in Swords (see the scheme on NewHomes.ie). The sales office opened on Saturday with successful young homebuyers having queued for up to 5 days to be the first to pay their deposit for a brand new home.
Now, we give you the chance to see inside these most talked about show homes, thanks to the interior designers who furnished them.
Gannon Homes make a bold choice
Gannon Homes’ launch of Millers Glen has been pretty exceptional from a number of angles.
- It’s the first major new homes launch in 2014 and the start of the new property cycle;
- The first return of queuing homebuyers desperate to be the first to purchase a new home;
- Huge press coverage that has highlighted the severe shortage of new homes;
- The build quality and finish looks excellent. A-rated BERs, solar hot water as standard, they have really spent the money to make these homes spacious and up-to-date (see the full specifications on NewHomes.ie)
But what we love about Gannon’s new homes is the bold and contemporary choice they made with the interior design. Often an afterthought or an over-the-top fancy-fest that no one would actually live in – Gannons have realised these homes are going to be bought by the younger generation who have a completely different design palette from buyers 10 years ago.
Gannons have made a bold choice going with a jazzy modern design team, and it’s glorious!
Think Contemporary Interior Designs
Think Contemporary are a hip interior design team based in Dublin 8. They have done themselves proud with these show homes, really setting the standard for this next generation of new home fit out.
Not boring and samey, nor prohibitively expensive – they have paired neutral base colours and materials with injections of super-bold colour and used furniture from affordable, design-focussed sources.
We’d say this genius comes from having designed many Dublin startup office spaces (see their commercial portfolio) but this is definitely something we need to see more of in the residential sector.
