Our creative vision for design at Urban Blossom is to create architectural spaces with light and contemporary clean lines, but without compromising on comfort. Textural quality is really important to creating the atmosphere of a space, with the use of natural materials high on our agenda. The goal in any interior space is to create those ‘ooh’ moments; whether it is by discovering a hidden space, awaking to find the eye level from your bed is just the right viewpoint to admire the landscape, or sinking into a supremely comfortable sofa.
Merging the parallel disciplines of architecture, interior design, landscaping, decoration and styling means we are able to specify right down to the last artwork and accessory. Whenever possible, we like to use UK furniture designers who deliver sustainable options for products. We champion materials that do not fill with the air with toxins, have been made sustainably and can be recycled at the end of their natural life.
Urban Blossom have a collaborative design ethos to cross pollinate designers from the worlds of Interior Design, Landscape Design and Architecture, significantly those who have many years of experience across hospitality, leisure and private residences. Their skills and experience ensure that Urban Blossom interiors and exteriors sing to the users, and create biophilic spaces which enhance wellbeing.
Some of our collaborative design partners include:

Our creative vision for our interior spaces reflects our ethos of strong design elements with contemporary lines, natural elements and comfort. Our packages include all fittings, fixtures and optional furniture packages.
We offer two initial options for our buildings; Urban Blossom and Urban Blossom Plus. All come with fixtures and fittings such as a Kitchen and Bathroom as standard. Upgrades are via appliances and fittings (flooring, wall finishes, hardware) for the Urban Blossom Plus option.
Furniture packages are optional for all of our buildings, where we have curated and handpicked beautiful creations that enhance the spaces.
We create design schemes to enhance the qualities of the buildings spatially and in materiality. Furthermore, for those users who want a more bespoke interior design package, we can customise interior packages to suit client’s preferences. We will also modify schemes to compliment existing corporate / brand identities.
Clients can also choose to have the buildings delivered as a blank canvas for their own creative internal fit outs.
