Albert Street 

Located in a traditional 1900s tenement building, this fairly basic, top floor, one bedroom flat had a raft of distinct features; including exposed stone walls, high ceilings and original wood floors. The south-facing, picture windows flood the rooms with natural light and offers uninterrupted views of two of Edinburghs most famous landmarks; Calton Hill and Arthurs Seat. The aim was to create a warm, serene and neutral bedroom and juxtapose this with a lively, vibrant and eclectic living and dining space. All the walls are painted in warm whites to make the most of the south-facing aspect and increase the sense of space. All the furnishings were sought from local vintage, second hand and antique shops and mismatched artworks are hung in random order. A mirror splash back in the kitchenette brightens and opens up the darkest part of the open plan room. Quirky finishes, like the slate stones in what was an original fireplace, offers character. Now ranked one of Edinburgh’s most popular Airbnb flats, guests reveal in the home away from home feel and the unique interior design.
