Devon LivingIssue #05
To sate our appetite for the latest interior trends, we speak to a few of Devon’s experts, who point us towards some absolutely stunning ranges that are proving incredibly popular.
Given that most of us will spend a third of our lives in the land of nod, it makes sense to invest in a bed that’s up to the job of both supporting you and ensuring a comfortable sleep, night after night. But this doesn’t have to mean sacrificing on style. Emma Casson, Director of Petter Betteridge Furnishers (www.bedexpert.co.uk) introduces the Imperial bed, by Somnus Beds. Boasting a jaw-dropping 26,500 springs in a king size to deliver a superb level of comfort, there’s also something distinctly stylish about these beds. These, along with other ranges including the stunning Matera bedroom collection and the Pearl collection – designed to create a unique centrepiece in your bedroom – are proof that Peter Betteridge really is Devon’s local bed expert!
“Especially luxurious, this range is inspired by designs from multiple cultures around the world.”
And then we have Prestige Furniture (www.prestigefurniture.co.uk), home to the Augusto bedroom collection. Featuring a dark, natural and oiled finish and soft close drawers, this range is made using solid oak with clean cut lines and angled feet, giving it a modern retro look, one which can be paired with different furniture and décors thanks to its incredible versatility.
Through to the living room and the Prestige team recommends the Donatello sofa collection. Especially luxurious, this range is inspired by designs from multiple cultures around the world. Its upholstery combines buffed, supple leathers and beautifully woven fabrics to create the perfect living room sanctuary. Soft textured weaves and distressed leathers come together in the Donatello range and, when teamed with stripped bare walls and rich dark oak, promise an industrial yet warming look.
While we’re on the subject of living spaces, it’s fair to say that more and more of us are choosing to extend ours via the installation of a conservatory or orangery. Four Seasons (www.fourseasonshome.co.uk) in Exeter were recently awarded the prestigious ‘Which? Trusted Trader Ultra Installer’ accreditation, having become the south west’s biggest installer of conservatories, orangeries and single-story extensions. The team specialises in bringing the outside in and at this time of year, especially with the weather we’ve been having, it’s fair to say that doing just that is on the minds of homeowners across the Westcountry.
