Our Oxfordshire team encouraged Bampton children to get creative during lockdown, challenging Bampton Primary School pupils to design their dream bedroom and offering the winner the chance to see their creation brought to life.
The team tasked children at the school to craft their ideal bedroom using materials of their choice. Pupils could submit drawings, digital creations or 3D models of their ideal space, limited only by their imagination.
First prize was awarded to Year 4 pupil Cecilia Easterbrook for her pig-themed bedroom. Cecilia received a range of arts and crafts prizes, and her design is now being used to inspire the children’s bedroom in the showhome at Bampton Meadows, which is due to open later this year.
As well as Bampton Primary School, we also challenged pupils from a number of other schools across Oxfordshire and Northamptonshire to design their dream bedrooms.
Lisa Burrell, Interior Designer at Redditch-based Claude Hooper, helped launch the competition by filming a video for pupils and was part of the judging panel. She said: “It’s been great to see such a range of thoughtful and imaginative designs using a variety of materials, and it was definitely a challenge to choose the winners. I was delighted to give first prize for Bampton Primary School to Cecila and her lovely pig-themed creation, and I’m now working hard to bring her design to life in the Bampton Meadows showhome.”
Cecilia will be invited to Bampton Meadows to see her design in person once the showhome is ready to open.
