ITH busy lives, be­ing short on time and long on com­mit­ments, buy­ers want as­pi­ra­tional homes with ad­vanced tech­nolo­gies and stylish and op­u­lent in­te­ri­ors which are also prac­ti­cal and durable to meet their fam­ily needs, says Iona New­ton. She be­lieves that there are three key com­po­nents to cre­at­ing a show­case home. What­ever the size of pro­ject, style, qual­ity and lux­ury will al­ways ap­peal to any home­owner.“Key fea­ture pieces of fur­ni­ture, spec­tac­u­lar ac­ces­sories and stun­ning art­work give homes im­pact.A sense of op­u­lence en­sures homes are re­mem­bered long af­ter the view­ing is over,” says Iona. “Houses must be en­joyed and pro­vide well­be­ing to oc­cu­pants and visi­tors alike.” Iona sug­gests sump­tu­ous so­fas, imag­i­na­tive stor­age, heated floors and an abun­dance of nat­u­ral light.“Of course, land­scap­ing is equally im­por­tant, en­sur­ing the gar­den has a year-round ap­peal and en­cour­ages en­joy­ment of the out­side en­ter­tain­ing ar­eas.”

“Ease of use and seam­less in­te­gra­tion across dif­fer­ent tech­nolo­gies are key,” says Iona, cit­ing mood light­ing, smart­phone heat­ing and au­dio vis­ual tech­nol­ogy as main el­e­ments.

“When the judges see so many en­tries each year, it is im­por­tant our homes meet the stan­dard for con­sid­er­a­tion. But there must be dif­fer­en­tia­tors, el­e­ments of de­sign and lux­ury which pro­mote the prop­erty above the com­pe­ti­tion and make it mem­o­rable and unique,” added Iona.
