Surrounded by greenery and parklands, Kinion Place in Bucksburn is ideally located, giving a taste of country living in an urban setting.
The new development by north-east developer Bancon Homes is perfect for those who want to settle down and enjoy the convienence of being close to the city, while enjoying endless green space on their doorstep.
With two, three and four-bedroom houses for sale within the development, it is an attractive spot for couples, singles and families alike to put down roots.
Also based at Kinion Place is Bancon’s Rosehill show home – a four-bedroom detached villa which features an open-plan kitchen, dining and family room, a study and a large rear garen.
A welcoming, contemporary, space to call home, the house boasts ample storage and is decorated beautifully, which is only enhanced further by stunning accessories.
Designed by interior designer Karen Wootton from The Design House in Aberdeen, the show home features some of the latest interior trends which are created by using a range of luxurious furnishings and ornaments.
With more than 27 years’ experience in the industry and having owned her business for 20 years this month, Karen shares how she achieved the look.
One of the colours of the moment, Karen has used plenty of teal within this home.
“Rosehill has a classic contemporary style built up with different shades of teal which has a calm and collective vibe,” said Karen.
“The gorgeous, deep teal, custom-made velvet sofas stand off against the moody, grey walls and luxurious velvet moire curtains and the accents of burnt orange contrast the teal tones beautifully, giving a relaxed ambiance.
“Teals tones really add depth and mood to a room. The ground floor of this home shows how different shades of teal build a contemporary style, while layering and varying tones create a classic and collective feel, meaning you have the best of both worlds in terms of traditional and modern.
“Adding accents such as ochre or burnt orange helps to contrast against the teal, highlighting its vibrancy and adding to the feel of your room.”
The open-plan kitchen, dining and living space also nods to the teal theme, bringing in chrome and more natural finishes into the mix, too.
Karen said: “While the kitchen offers vivid shades of softer teal, mixed with light greys and natural tones, this creates a bright and airy space.
“The lighting breaks up the room and makes it. I’ve used a down light, pendant lighting and then the big over-sized side lamps to really bring attention to that bold back wall.
“The furniture is very practical and the wooden effect and the comfy chairs and sofa contrast from the shiny, sleek kitchen. I like to mix and match textures and finishes, it gives more of an eclectic feel.”
Upstairs are four bedrooms – all of which boast built-in wardrobes – and a family bathroom.
Adding bursts of colour throughout the home, Karen wanted to show potential buyers colour can be very playful and bring the room to life.
“I love colour and I wanted to bring bold colours and designs into the home to show people not to be afraid of them,” said Karen.
“You can make the rooms appear bigger with depths of colour and I really wanted to bring the rooms alive.
“The boy’s room upstairs is the perfect example of this. I’ve used a wallpaper across one full wall that features a New York scene which was my real inspiration behind this room.
“I brought in the yellow chevron to nod to New York taxis, and to add a contrasting colour into the mix I used a dark midnight navy colour. It really makes the white bed pop and the pillows and accessories also pull the whole room together.
“Home accessories are very important for dressing out a room, whether it’s for glamour, sophistication or a casual, relaxed feel.
“It’s not always about artwork and sculptures. In this case, I’ve used pictures, children’s toys and smaller figurines to add character to the room.”
Returning to the teal theme throughout, it’s the use of wallpapers in the guest bedrooms and children’s bedrooms that makes each room so individual.
She said: “The depth of the teal adds to the richness of the guest room. I took inspiration from the silk blind and carried the colours of it through things like the bed.
“The base of the bed and the headboard are both different colours and the contrasting textures really help it make an impact against the quirky wallpaper and the floor.
“The bed really stands out with the luxurious velvet – a bit of velvet can really warm up a room to create a more relaxed ambiance.
“This spring, it’s all about textured papers, which give depth to the walls without being too fussy, but still helps to build on that sophisticated finish. In particular, geometric prints have made a huge comeback, which adds to the classic contemporary look of the room.”
For the bathrooms, it’s all about linking up the different spaces, especially in the case of the master bedroom’s en-suite.
“The bathroom complements the big cream, high-back, buttoned headboard with wings in the master bedroom,” said Karen.
“It’s very extravagant in the soft cream velvet and the teal, denim sort of linen textured wallpaper in the en-suite ties in with the lighter colours.
“Items like plants add a nice touch of nature and colour, as do decorative candles. Decorative towels can be layered and, again, add some colour too.”
And with plenty of space for individuals to enjoy outside at the back of the house, and the front, the Rosehill makes for the perfect family home.
Close to a number of amenities including shops and the new The Event Complex Aberdeen, there’s lots to be excited about in the area of the city.
