Ideal home – Week 1

Ideal Home – Week 1

As you all know, this year, Kingston Lafferty Design are designing the showhouse for the DFS Ideal Home Show at the RDS, starting on October 23rd.
From initial floor layouts, to moodboards and final conception, we have been working away behind the scenes for weeks to prepare and organize for this event. Last Friday, Roisin, Amy and I went to our first site visit to see the build in progress.


Hard to imagine now but in just a few days, a beautiful showhouse will take shape and thousands of people will visit it.


It was a speedy process that saw these 2D plans which had been poured over for weeks suddenly come to life. A hectic morning saw all sorts of trades coming together, working to make this show home a reality.


The walls are up and the spaces are really beginning to take shape. We talked through all the details with everyone working on site ensuring all was set to stay on schedule.


Can’t wait for the flooring and painting to start and see our vision come to life! Scrawling paint colour names across their intended walls was the last act before packing things up and heading back to the office… heres hoping to see lovely finished walls in a stunning selection of colours by Color Trend.


More progress coming soon, as our exciting build continues…
