An Edinburgh Apartment That’s a Dreamy Kaleidoscope of Color

Designer Sam Buckley is clearly a color lover. I mean, check out his two Instagram accounts – @studiosambuckley and @ooooobjectsssss – and the project below if you have any doubts. This Edinburgh, Scotland apartment may sound overwhelming to some, but when you see the pictures it just works. The apartment has Victorian bones and the use of a rich color palette, bold furniture and a touch of nature creates a kaleidoscope of dreams.

The living space is grounded with a custom graphic carpet designed by Buckley for cc-tapis. Similar shapes and colors found in the carpet are replicated from the floor up, including the ceiling and windows.

The oversized wall graphics are available in a variety of shades, including aqua blue, turquoise, hunter green, yellow, coral, maroon and pale pink. A green striped sofa, an orange chair, a coral red table, and a two-tone blue console complete the larger pieces of furniture paired with a select grouping of statement objects.

Even the doors slam with the addition of graphic printing plates.

Even the bedroom has been redesigned, but with a more subtle color scheme. The walls still have graphic shapes, but are painted in two muted tones with white in the middle. The bed impresses with its bright yellow duvet and pink pillows, while the radiator has a perforated marigold cover that enhances it from an eyesore.
