WhatHouse? spoke to Suzanne Kerley, creative manager of blocc interiors, ​to find out more about the design of the show flat at The View.

 “The key to a successful design is you always need to keep in mind the potential buyer profile. The design needs to create the desire. The View show apartment design needed to be aspirational, yet achievable.”The View's lounge
“Monotone & different metals finishes were big at the recent interiors show. We agreed on a predominantly neutral canvas of white and ivory as a starting point, and then introduced injections of warm copper tones throughout the property with feature wallpaper panels, fabrics, copper coloured accessories, statement artwork and large mirrors to add impact.”Bedroom at The View
“I feel the kitchen/dining/living room works the best. The layout of the furniture also helps to zone the different living spaces. It demonstrates modern day living and the great open plan space.”The View's kitchen/dining/living room
Just before beginning the show flat at The View, Suzanne had been to Maison Objet in Paris, the biggest trade interiors show in Europe, so was full of inspiration and ideas for the show flat. Some of the copper accessories were purchased from suppliers at Maison Objet.The master bedroom at The View
