Edinburgh: Architecture

Hello everyone,

One of the things I really enjoyed about Scotlnd, was the architecture. From what I learnt- and could see as well- the arcitecture has pretty much been maintained through decades- throughout the city and in most of the residential areas that I saw.

Except offcourse for the new businesses in the suburbs such as IKEA, COSTCO etc.

In the city- the homes are mostly attached- what I know as a “townhouse” In the subburbs however the are homes larger, and sits on large pieces of land- some up to 4 acres.

All of the homes have atleast 1 chimney- in some case I saw 2 or even 3- so there would be one in the living room and 1 each in the bedrooms.

I absolutely love the older architecture styles- and more so trying to imagine who lived there and how life was “backthen” putting my own story to it 🙂 The ceilings are high, the moldings are tasteful and the colors very neutral.

Picture perfect!
