LOCATION: Waverley Square, Edinburgh
PROJECT: Show apartment – 2 bedroom apartment
Waverley Square is located in the heart of Edinburgh’s historic old town and consists of 66 new homes in a mix of 1, 2 and 3-bedroom apartments, mews houses and maisonettes.
The property is situated in a VERY sort-after area that would appeal to professionals, urbanites, investors and overseas buyers. Our show home design needed to appeal to them all!
Our brief was to create a vibrant space suitable to today’s urban living. We opted for a very modern, aspirational, urban, quirky and edgy design style that was sure to impress any potential purchaser.
With such a varied purchaser profile, we were able to create an unafraid design that was punchy and daring with an emphasis on colour and art. After all urban living today is about statement.
Situated in the heart of Edinburgh, this two bedroom apartment offers generous proportions and a modern layout.
We created a strong design by using natural colours and textures for the main items such as wallpapers, upholstery fabrics and wall to wall curtains. Then, we added bold hues on details for impact on art, cushions and accessories. Gold details throughout injects a touch of glamour. This approach reflects the buzz and energy of the city in which this property is located as well as a forward-thinking living style.
The open plan living area shows a large bespoke entertainment unit in natural wood and gold accents. It houses the television as well as providing display and storage opportunities. Framed by two large leather sofas in tan colour and a complimentary side chair of modern design, this area is suitable for relaxing or entertainment use alike. Colourful cushions and bold art make a statement with their primary colours.
The dining area boasts a large table with six leather chairs. We created a mood with the unusual use of two textured wallpapers on the back wall and a large pendant. The kitchen art reflects the accent colours of those in the living room.
The spacious master bedroom shows an oversized leather headboard embracing the side tables with statement table lamps. These pieces are framed by a dark back wall with a sizeable art piece above the bed and detailed with cushions of the same strong colours. We provided a dressing table and mirror of elegant lines and another bold piece of art next to it.
Bedroom 2 uses more pattern and colour to create a focal point with a black & white patterned headboard and vibrant cushions on the bed. A collection of mirrors and large abstract art make their presence known.
The overall effect is daring and attractive but also elegant and inviting. The colour brings excitement and modern living is about wellbeing. This design really reflects a zest for living!
