Everyone has individual tastes – the 2017 Dream Home supporting London’s Hospitals is designed to appeal to all of us, and the designer responsible used Great Floors to make their vision come alive. A “Dream Home” has to be many things: beautiful, functional, spacious, and most importantly, cutting-edge in both technology and aesthetics.
This year’s Dream Home by Bridlewood has set the bar and exceeded every Dream Home expectation. Timeless textures, airy colour palettes and custom finishes permeate the space. With the purchase of a ticket supporting London’s Hospitals, you have a chance at owning this exceptional home.
The elegant English Plank hardwood from Beckham Brothers in the colour “Nottinghill” is found throughout the main and second floor of this year’s Dream Home. These floors combine modern technology and timeless beauty due to an incomparable Siberian Larch core and a warm grey-toned double-smoked White Oak finish. This warm and smoky finish is one of the newest and most in-demand designs right now – unfortunately, very few flooring manufacturers have perfected it the way Beckham Brothers has. These engineered hardwood floors are more stable and moisture-resistant than any other similar product on the market. They are durable, very low maintenance, and remarkably beautiful and sophisticated. You can see Nottinghill and the other English Plank designs here.
Textured and patterned tiles are playing an ever-growing role in design. Unique patterns and textures in soft neutral or pastel tones were all used to give the Dream Home a fresh, contemporary feel without being busy or distracting. Ceragres’ long reputation of producing striking and chic products made them an obvious choice for this kind of project. Ceragres has been a leader in the tile industry for over 25 years, offering a wide range of specialized, stylish, and innovative products. In this photo of the luxurious Master En Suite, you can see Ceragres’ MARBLE Carrara tile in 3 styles. MARBLE Carrara is stunning and versatile, shown in a 6″x2″ Chevron on the floor, 5″ Hex tile on the shower walls, and a petite 0.75″x 1.5″ herringbone on the shower floor for extra grip and a delicate intricacy.
