Pop-Up Show Apartment Adds Zest To Waverley Square

Posted: 13th June 2022

Queensberry Properties’ successful Waverley Square development has revealed a fresh new look. It has opened a pop-up one bedroom show apartment with a relaxed and contemporary vibe.

The apartment has feature walls in mid-tone shades, bold cushions and accessories made from wood and rattan and the effect is warm and inviting.

Waverley Square is part of the £240m regeneration of New Waverley into one of Edinburgh’s most exciting districts, close to the High Street and Edinburgh University and handy for transport links. 

The development consists of 66 apartments, mews and galleried penthouses that range in size from one to three bedrooms and the latest show apartment has been designed by Ronnie Kennedy of Get Fully Furnished who has given the apartment a touch of boho chic.

An oversized sofa, generously-proportioned dining table and deeply-padded headboard in the bedroom make the most of the spacious interiors and prints on the walls provide a splash of bright colour.

Ronnie Kennedy says: “The apartment is really bright and very spacious, which is why we were able to use such large pieces of furniture. We wanted to make it a sociable space, so we chose a sea storm shade on the wall in the living area and ‘copper blush’ in the bedroom and the lamps and other accessories have a ‘reclaimed’ appearance.

“The brief was to make it young, fresh and informal so that it would appeal to anyone who wanted to come home, kick off their shoes and relax on the sofa.”

Like all the apartments in Waverley Square, the one-bedroom apartments have floor to ceiling windows and access to a large, landscaped communal courtyard, with optional private underground parking. 

Hazel Davies, Sales and Marketing Director of Queensberry Properties said: “Waverley Square is proving to be popular with many different buyers but we’ve noticed a real trend amongst parents of students studying in Edinburgh, many of them international buyers, who want somewhere central for their children.

“The location is ideal and the new bars, retails and hotels that are opening in this part of the Old Town are making it a fun and exciting place to live.

“Waverley Square is ideally placed for anyone who wants to make the most of city living and the new pop up apartment’s fresh urban vibe fits perfectly with the location.”

 Prices at Waverley Square start at £380,000 for a one-bedroom apartment. All properties enjoy a superb specification, including designer German kitchens with integrated Siemens appliances, sleek sanitaryware by Laufen and quality floor coverings throughout as standard.

As well as two show homes, Queensberry Properties has a virtual apartment selector system that allows users to explore the location, experience the properties and download particulars of Waverley Square using interactive technology from the comfort of their own home.

 Selling agents, Rettie & Co, are now taking reservations and bookings for viewing appointments for the show apartment. Please call 0131 600 0210 or email Alternatively visit the website at
