In 2017 Prosper Property, a straight-talking family business working with private investors added to their portfolio of developments with Roseland House, a stunning £1.39 million site in the university town of Falmouth, Cornwall. Prosper Property have a highly successful formula for developing properties: they find great locations and work with trusted local professionals to create high quality homes that meet real, local needs.
The interior design brief was clear: thoughtfully designed high-end, boutique-style student accommodation, to meet the changing needs of the town’s growing student community.
Friends were commissioned towards the latter stage of the project, to give this brand new beautifully built 15 bed student HMO property more than lick of paint and boy did we get stuck in!
The colour palette was started off by picking a pair of colours to show off the new build and refresh the adjoining, older building. These colours were used as a spring board to create a bright and exciting colour palette that is applied throughout the house in bold and surprising ways. Continuing this theme, Friends designed bespoke artwork, including encouraging messaging, abstract patterns and a giant hand drawn map of Falmouth, to be fitted around the house. Directional signage was also designed to compliment the theme of the interiors while being clear and informative.
With student lifestyle in mind Friends commissioned beautiful and practical items including bespoke, heavy duty shelving and full-height cork board panels. Styling packs were researched and put together to set the scene of a student room while drawing on the strong colour palette. Friends meticulously styled the Roseland House photoshoot, working with photographer Pip Hayler to create a bank of images for Prosper Property to market their new portfolio piece.
