If you have aspirations for modern living, then the Grand Designs Live show is just for you… you’ll be drawn in by the many exhibitors dazzling you with contemporary furniture, space age lighting and wow technology. Dulux are one of the official sponsors so you’ll be guaranteed some splashes of colour and ‘feature wall’ possibilities.
Kevin McCloud’s vision for what makes a grand design remains the true focus of the show so you’ll be able to catch up with the man himself along with many guest speakers in the ‘Grand Theatre’. One of this year’s highlights is a chance to meet TV’s Grand Designers Alan and Judith Dawson discussing their ‘Adaptahaus’, a steel-framed, modular home.
If you’ve caught up with the Channel 4 TV show, you’d be forgiven for thinking that a Grand Design involves demolishing your old home and starting from scratch! Indeed, you will find everything from bricks and mortar for builders and property developers, through to the latest eco materials and craft building techniques for architects and self-build enthusiasts.
However, on a more practical level, a ‘grand design’ also involves those touches and tweaks that will enable you to put your own ‘personal stamp’ on your existing home! It’s not all about structure! Much of the show is dedicated to interior decoration and you will find halls devoted to soft furnishings and home decor. If you’re a design and style enthusiast the latest accessories will keep you amused for hours!
To make the most of the show, plan your time well as there are 7 halls to choose from: grand build, grand interiors, grand kitchens, grand bathrooms, grand gardens, grand technology and the grand village.
So if you fancy creating a Grand Design of your own, then why not take a trip to London and let us know all about your stay and visit at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Eventful Stays also has a Grand Designs House of it’s own! Why not take a look at the Underground House in central Cheltenham and if you fancy a truly memorable stay then enquire with us now and book for that weekend break or Easter holiday.
