Looking for a contemporary styled luxury lodge with holiday practicality and style that offers something a bit different? Look no further!
Omar unveiled the Atrium luxury lodge at the World of Park and Leisure Home Show at Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire this summer. The stunning lodge took centre-stage on the Omar stand, catching the eyes of visitors — including the Park and Holiday Home Inspiration team.
This is a layout like no other. We go out of the twin room into the main living space, a huge open-plan area. Here is the Atrium’s defining feature: bi-fold doors which enable you to open the whole of the front of the lounge.
A corner sofa faces the bi-fold doors so you can relax here and take in the view. A large coffee table is at hand for your mugs and reading matter; it’s a natural log-inspired design.
On another wall is a suite of white cabinets surrounding a black-framed, log-effect fire and a black marble effect surface for your TV. Natural bleached wood panels are behind the TV area and around the fire. It’s stunningly modern — and utterly gorgeous.
The kitchen forms its own individual element of the open space and has its own distinctive styling. It’s a U-shape, with a part-wall dividing it from the lounge area. The colours are bold black and white. The appliances are black: a high-tech microwave plus a range cooker, and a large fridge-freezer which actually forms part of the décor.
Surfaces are black marble-effect. The sink and drainer are matt black. The spiral design of the high-arching mixer tap is the icing on a handsome cake. Its whole look is awesomely modern, bold and striking.
A large roof light ensures the kitchen is as bright a space as the lounge section of the open-plan layout. Two more skylights are above over the lounge, adding to the atrium effect.
The dining space, adjoining the kitchen, has a large table, two chairs and a bench. Its unusual styling introduces a suggestion of a cottage theme, which softens the total look against the clean, bold lines of the kitchen.
The bench is shaped rather like a natural piece of planed log. The table edges follow this slightly irregular theme. Two chairs have curved backrests and woven seat sections, again softening the look with a suggestion of a cottagey theme.
The main bedroom is at the opposite end of the Atrium to the twin room. Like the second bedroom, it has three high-positioned windows plus French doors. Curtains are the palest blush pink. The pale fawn-grey walls that are a feature of all the Atrium’s rooms add to the calming look of this lovely bedroom.
The bedhead, clad in the same delightful whitewashed natural wood used to back the TV area in the lounge, and here framed in matt white, forms a part-wall. Behind it is a dressing table and large wardrobe with sliding doors.
This dressing area leads into the bathroom with a large shower as well as a bath. A large circular washbasin sits on top of a gloss-white drawer unit. The same style of mirror with the blue power button that had caught our eyes in the shower room at the other end of the Atrium is here, too.
A door leads from the shower room into the twin bedroom, with three high windows and French doors leading outside; a beautifully light and airy room.
We saw the Atrium both in heavy rain and bright sunlight during our two days at Stoneleigh and at both extremes of light conditions the Atrium looked immensely light and bright. With the lounge area’s bi-fold doors closed, there’s a cosiness along with the light airy look. With the doors open, the interior seems to merge with the outdoors. Utterly brilliant.
Having the bedrooms at opposite ends of the Atrium, both with shower rooms, guarantees seclusion which will appeal whether you’re a family with two children or you’ve invited guests to stay. An excellent design.
