  • This four bedroom townhouse in Edinburgh was built in 2008. The owners added understated luxury using texture, pattern and a muted colour palette.

    The hallway is the perfect example of rough-luxe design, with its quirky stone-effect tile wallpaper that’s been balanced with sleek lacquered units, a contemporary mirror and the twinkle of candlelight.

    Smart and simple with touches of glamour, the living room has an understated elegance. The owners wanted to create a soothing refuge with a hint of Zen serenity.
    High-gloss taupe units suit the understated style perfectly. Teamed with a grey worktop and grey upholstered bar stool, it’s built for comfort as well as style.
    The garden room is light even on a gloomy day, with its large floor to ceiling windows. The small sofa and chairs are ideal for the space and create a nice space to chill out and relax.In the dining room, deep aubergine walls, curtains and upholstered dining chairs create a warm, intimate vibe. A contemporary crystal chandelier adds a glamorous touch, coupled with twinkly fairly lights as window dressing.

    A soothing palette of soft mauves combined with luxurious bed linen and floor to ceiling curtains give this guest bedroom plenty of boutique hotel chic. The button back wallpaper is echoed by the button back headboard, which is a nice designer touch.

    Yet more textured wallpaper and lustrous surfaces feature in the main bedroom. The owners of this property clearly took their lead from texture, rather than colour, to shape the overall look and feel of the space.
