A contemporary new-build in Edinburgh, Scotland. It features a living room, kitchen-diner, sun room, tower room, play room, study, three bedrooms and a bathroom. The interior of the three-storey, Dutch-influenced, copper-clad house the owners built in not your typical wheelchair-friendly design. Despite the plot’s small size, they rejected the obvious option of simply installing a lift. Since its completion, this impressive new-build has won three awards for its innovative design and has considerably improved the owners’ lives.
The décor is modern and pared-back throughout with whitewashed walls complementing the pale-wood flooring, while soft furnishings and feature walls add splashes of colour. The owners used vibrant tones in sub-spaces and recesses, which help to define architectural features.
A chic example of a modern kitchen – stainless-stell worktops and chrome pendant lighting combine to make this kitchen-diner space super stylish. The big appeal is for the kitchen and cook to be part of the action when entertaining and, on a day-to-day basis, for the whole family to be together. Open-plan layouts really come into their own, as the majority of kitchens include large amounts of glass that maximise light and provide easy access to the garden, extending the living and entertaining space.
Doors open on to a Juliet balcony overlooking the study. This minimal bedroom keeps things very simple, but remains interesting thanks to a few well chosen accessories and colourful soft furnishings. Two wall-hung lights above the bed free up floor space and dismiss the need for a bedside table.
No child’s bedroom is complete without a classic rocking horse. With the clever use of paint, prints and accessories you will be able to create a room that holds its own against a stark, minimal canvas. The vintage horse and modern interior make a stylish contrast.
