When a new house becomes a home

Cedar on the Crescent mark their first Christmas with a 2021 competition win

Finding more reasons to be cheerful, Luke and Emma Blunt’s winning entry for the Cannon Kirk Homes Christmas Decorations Competition 2021 prove that it is never too early to begin making memories in your new home.

After moving into their detached, four-bedroom Cedar home in Littleport, in April 2021, Luke explained: “As it was our first Christmas in our newly built Cannon Kirk house, we treated ourselves to a lovely new faux Christmas tree and selection of gold accessories to decorate it with.

“The décor in our lounge consists of dark woods, royal greens, black metals and cool greys, so we felt that the gold gave a certain festive warmth to the lounge, and the ribbon on the tree gave a nice softness to balance the spiky-leaved ‘urban jungle’ style house plants. The festive gold followed through the rest of the house. Safe to say, we got very carried away with decorations this year, but we had an absolute ball!

“We are enormously appreciative of Cannon Kirk’s prize and look forward to further treating ourselves to some beautiful accessories for the home that we’re both so proud to be in.”

American architect Louis Kahn famously said, “even a brick wants to be something,” which has been a guiding principle leading the high-quality master planning behind all Cannon Kirk Homes from developments in Willow Green, Romans Walk to Highfields Prior and Highfields Square.

Mandy Lott, Sales Manager for Cannon Kirk Homes, said: “We thoroughly enjoyed viewing all the entries for the 2021 Christmas Decorations Competition and appreciate having a community of homeowners who share their journey with us, which makes the work of the Cannon Kirk team feel worthwhile.”
