Home renovator Emma (@phemieloves) has transformed her nineties Scottish home to a modern open plan space that is full of vivid hues, which recently saw a special feature on BBC’s Scotland Home of the Year.
Documenting her renovation journey on her Instagram account, @phemieloves, Emma has paired white walls with pops of colour throughout her Scotland home.
The minimalist walls and kitchen cupboards create a neutral backdrop for the colourful accessories, establishing a vibrant home that doesn’t overwhelm. She has used decorative pillows, ornaments and furniture to add brightness to her home in a customisable way.
In her open plan living room and kitchen diner, the wooden furniture perfectly balances her colourful soft furnishings, giving a seventies inspired nod to the space. The large windows bring the garden’s greenery into the house, illuminating the space with natural light and colour.
Emma’s stylish wall gallery incorporates in a variety of colours and patterns as well as more minimalist prints. The abstract paintings contain vivid tones that establish the colour palette throughout the home, tying the décor together perfectly to create a contemporary feel.
Atkinson & Kirby’s Lewis Oak flooring was installed throughout the home. The sleek, timeless elegance of the solid wood flooring gives the space a warm feeling that complements the modern decoration and bright colours.
The presence of knots and natural colouring in Atkinson & Kirby’s classic wooden flooring creates a rustic, raw appearance that balances the modern white walls and clean, bold colours in Emma’s home.
To Emma’s delight, the home was featured on BBC Scotland’s Home of the Year, being described as an on trend, fun and a relaxing home to be in. Judges commented on Emma’s awareness of design, stating that she used all of the best brands to transform her home.
