THE ROVERS RETURN REVAMPED!
From love affairs to fisticuffs – Coronation Street’s most iconic pub, The Rovers Return has been on our screen since the 1960s, setting the scene for countless dramatic events. To mark the 60th anniversary of the soap, David Wilson Homes have revealed how it could look with a modern interior makeover.
Whilst the pub may have frequently changed hands over the years, its interior style has remained unchanged. Using five of 2020’s biggest interior trends, they’ve reinvented the famous TV pub to showcase how it could look if it was given a major revamp.
Which one would you like to see in the show?
Switching warm reds and rich oak for cool metallics and pine, we’ve given the iconic Manchester pub a taste of modern Scandinavian style. One of this year’s most popular trends, Scandi interior draws in natural light, with a focus on clean, simple lines, minimalism, and functionality without sacrificing beauty.
Designed to maximise light at every turn, this trend favours pale-coloured walls and flooring and spaces free from clutter and ornamentation.
The free spirit of the interior world, Bohemian design unleashes vivid colours, textures, and patterns, whilst offering an environment that’s relaxing and calming. This new, eclectic, design gives a nod towards global influence, with exotic flowers, plants, and images, scattered around the room.
Punters can sit back and relax in a comfortable booth, sipping a drink as they watch the world go by.
Whilst the Rovers may have been opened in the 1960s, we’ve taken it back to the 1920s to unveil how it could look with a vintage interior style.
Vintage interior design is quaint and elegant, welcoming natural materials that ooze sophistication and opulence. With that in mind, we’ve swapped the pub’s traditional bar stools and furnishings for beautiful, antique furniture and decor.
Adding classic black and white checked flooring makes the perfect dance floor for guests who want to sip a Martini and whip out their jazz hands.
Fresh and inviting, the botanical trend is a simple way to add character and energy to any room, whether it’s a living room or an iconic TV pub.
To create an energising and uplifting atmosphere, we’ve stripped away the existing, dated wallpaper and replaced it with beautiful botanical prints, featuring bright splashes of bold green and red.
In a bid to bring the outdoors inside, you’ll also see an array of tropical plants, vines, and flowers scattered around the room, which helps to eliminate harmful toxins and reduce stress after a hard day’s work.
Industrial decor marries sleek modernity and rustic charm with an organic, lived-in feel. It’s become one of 2020s most popular home interior trends, thanks to the rise in regeneration projects across the country.
Industrial style refers to simplistic decor that derives from warehouses, factories, and other industrial structures. Typical decor includes stripped-back architectural details, exposed brick, metal, and wood, as well as recycled materials.
Taking inspiration from Coronation Street’s textile factory, Underworld, here’s what the Rovers would look like if it was given an industrial makeover.
