Summer interior trends to adopt in our Glasgow apartments

Another season and a whole lot of interior trends that you can adopt into your own home.

From bringing the outdoors inside to downtown apartment styles, as well as pastels and metallics. There is a whole selection to try and test to suit your taste.

In this latest blog post we’ll be looking at interior styling for our apartments, in particular focusing on our Pollokshaws Living development – minutes from the heart of Glasgow’s Southside and City Centre.

Spacious, with fresh natural lighting throughout, they provide endless styling opportunities to homeowners. So here they are, the top 4 suggested trends you should be adopting into your apartment this summer.


cosy apartment feeling with the use of a boho aesthetic

  1. Boho chic/Comfort core

As first choice we begin with the boho chic/comfort core combination. Still utilising the classic earthy palettes that boho is known for, it’s great for creating a warm and welcoming feel in our open plan apartments.

It also brings in textured finishes and layering for a cosy feel, all whilst keeping a slightly minimalist look.

This would be fairly simple to introduce into any of our new apartments in Glasgow, with just a lick of paint and select furniture/accessories to complete the look.

  1. Modern maximalism

    If something more eccentric sounds better suited to you, then the artistic expression and freedom of maximalism may be more up your street.

    Embrace bold and extravagant colours, patterns, and layering, display your cherished items or pieces of nostalgia. Truly let your personality shine through and think more is more.

    This style suits the open plan layout of our Southside apartments as the abundance of artwork, colours, shape and texture is a great way to bring spaces together.

    However what we would say is maximalist style is built up over time, so don’t expect to have the completed look straight away, see it more as a collector activity.


2023 interior trends within glasgow city apartments

  1. Relaxed coastal style

And if maximalism seems a bit much, then how about opting for the 2023 trend that also picks up on some key pattern and colour trends – relaxed coastal style.

Think of the ocean, sand and sky: crisp whites, neutral hues, and fresh blues, all paired with stripe accessories and natural finishes.

Again perfect for your new Urban Union apartment, as you’ll be able to benefit from your freshly plastered and painted white walls, saving you some DIY.


  1. 70s influence

Still not found the one for you? How about some nostalgia in the form of a 70s aesthetic. We’re talking metallic and brass finishes, velvets, olive green and more.

However how far you are influenced by this flamboyant era is entirely down to you. Take the picture above for example, this home utilises the large rug, the rounded lamps and furniture and organic table shapes – all complemented by an olive green couch.

The great thing though? The subtle nod to the era isn’t completely obvious, which means you don’t have to make the commitment to having a vintage style home.

You could easily recreate this look in our Pollokshaws apartments with a few trips to local and city centre furniture shops and antique markets. What a great way to explore your new location.

High energy efficiency rating = savings on your home bills

Firstly, as a contemporary new build, all of our apartments are built with an environmentally friendly ethos in mind. This means that all of our apartments are fully double glazed, fitted with a hi-efficient combo boiler as standard, completely insulated and installed with energy efficient appliances.

The benefit of this to you as a first time homeowner means you will be more likely to be approved for a green mortgage offer, due to the epic rating, and you will also receive ongoing benefits through saving on your monthly energy bills.


Proximity to City Centre locations

As well as this you can also save by relying less on your car for travelling, due to our apartments proximity to City Centre locations and the convenience of great local transport links.

By being so close (20 mins or less) to Glasgow/ Edinburgh you will have a quick and easy commute, but can also take advantage of nearby nightlife, socialising option, shopping destinations, restaurants and more.


An entirely blank canvas to make your home your own

However, if you’re more of a home bird, our new apartments provide an entirely blank canvas for you to decorate and put your own stamp on things.

Whether it’s a splash of colour on the newly plastered walls, that furniture you’ve always dreamed off or those statement light fittings. It’s all possible with our spacious one and two bedroom apartments.

Our apartments begin at £160,995 for a one bedroom apartment, a fixed price which can be reserved for as little as £99 at our Pennywell Living location.
