Par­tic­u­lar style

This home com­bines cool and clas­sic, and shakes them into shape with a dose of funky, says

The Herald - Scotland's Homes - - New To View -

adorns one wall on the stairs up to the first floor; the other walls kept neu­tral. It’s at once to­tally clas­sic and yet nat­u­rally en vogue at the same time. It’s light and bright, aided by a sky­light.

An of­fice uses more old-school sec­ond-hand fur­ni­ture as a desk and chair. An orig­i­nal wooden fire­place has logs in its hearth and the same util­i­tar­ian grey colour adorns the walls, pep­pered by pieces of art.

If there’s any room that branches into a de­cid­edly chic and con­tem­po­rary look, it’s the bath­room. Dark grey tiles add warmth; a mod­ern-shaped free­stand­ing tub is set off by a hot pink towel; and open shelves act as stor­age. Orig­i­nal wood is left at the win­dows and the walls are kept suit­ably neu­tral – a soft pal­ette of colours that adds to the feel­ing of bright­ness. It’s a space that’s fresh and func­tional, smart and stylish.

This home is no­table for so many things, not just as a strik­ing prop­erty from an ex­te­rior per­spec­tive – but for be­ing so in­ter­est­ing on the in­side too. Plenty of nat­u­ral, dark wood is left ex­posed and is com­bined with a neu­tral, some­times funky, colour scheme. Light fix­tures are kept in­ter­est­ing, frames on the wall the tra­di­tional made mod­ern; and with cov­etable orig­i­nal fea­tures. Unique and in­ter­est­ing, this is one home with per­son­al­ity in abun­dance.
