HILL SIDE HAVEN

We have another feature out this week, this time the Scotland On Sunday featured a beautiful house we shot last year in Edinburgh. I have been excited to share this really quirky ground floor flat set at the foot of Calton hill in. The property had wonderful detailing and great proportions when the owner Tobiaz Brunning bought it 5 years ago, but it had an awkward layout and needed a bit of life put back in to it after a developer had neutralised the whole house, it was a bit bland! Now the house has had a whole new look, subway tiles and brick effect wallpaper in the kitchen give the room a New York loft style. Tobiaz has a real passion for vintage furniture and accessories and the house is now filled with wonderful unique pieces in every room. I fell in love with the old leather trunks stacked up beside the bed to make perfect bedside tables. Tobiaz’ flat also had a typical Edinburgh flat box room which benefited from victorian celling hight. He has cleverly installed a double bed deck for when guests come to stay, leaving all the floor space for a desk and extra wardrobe storage. The bathroom was also an awkward space, but through clever thought and reconfiguration Tobiaz managed to fit a bath in and continue the decoration with the subway tiles. I absolutely love the Mathew Williamson wall paper that greets you on arrival, the bright orange and pink pattern paper is on all walls of the vestibule and is teamed with a beautiful old bureau. The over all look and style of his home is really eclectic, one of a kind. This home really has been transformed in to the perfect hill side haven.
