Looking for some design tips to refresh your home? With just a few stylish additions to your living spaces you can keep up-to-date with this season’s big trends in interior design. Let Stewart Milne Homes help you to make the most of your dream home with our top tips for decorating modern apartments.

Add a Splash of Colour

Adding bright accessories to a neutral colour scheme is a quick and effective way to highlight the key features of your room. The large picture windows at The Plaza in Riverside Quarter are perfect for letting in natural light which will pick up on the vivid colours. Sticking to one colour will create the biggest impact but if you’re using accessories in a variety of colours, use complementing tones to avoid a colour clash.

Bright red lamps and cushions will add a cheerful splash of colour to living rooms and bedrooms. If you want to change the look and feel of your living spaces, simply swap your accessories for ones in a different colour. Remember, less is more with this look. Only use a few statement items per room to avoid overpowering the neutral colour scheme.

Make Your Bookcase Work Harder

Bookcases are no longer solely for books. Breathe new life into your bookshelves by using them to display ornaments and photographs. Our top tip is to use shelves that have a natural wood finish so the frame complements your decorations, rather than detract attention from them. Natural wooden bookshelves will also give you the freedom to play around with the colour scheme by adding bright ornaments.

Mix Modern Style with Rustic Classics

Stewart Milne Homes’ stylish apartments at The Plaza are nestled amidst the scenic Aberdeenshire countryside. The Plaza’s superb location makes it the perfect place to mix classic country cottage style furniture with modern feature walls. Recreate this look by offsetting a statement wall in a bold colour against sturdy wooden furniture. The stunning view from the large windows in our new homes at The Plaza is the finishing touch for this look.

Decorate Your Home with Stewart Milne Homes and John Lewis

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to move into a stylish new home at The Plaza. Stewart Milne Homes has teamed up with the John Lewis Aberdeen to create an inspirational look book for our unique apartments at The Plaza. If you want to recreate these stunning looks in your home, simply quote “Stewart Milne Homes” to the John Lewis Home Design Team in the Aberdeen branch and your new home could be fully furnished in just seven days (subject to availability).
