Manchester New Square’s luxury apartment interiors take inspiration from the site’s history and scheme’s branding, with a soft and neutral colour palette and on trend accessories.

We caught up with interior designer Lauren Maylor at David Philips to explain her influences and how she designed the stunning show apartment, now open at 56 Princess Street.

“The main source of my inspiration was the scheme’s branding, designed by Steve Edge Design, alongside the buildings’ context and history. This part of Manchester was home to mills and warehouses during the industrial revolution and the scale and heritage of these buildings still lingers in this corner of the city. Architect SimpsonHaugh’s vision for Manchester New Square was in part, to create a peaceful retreat from city life and our interiors reflect this.

“We have developed a contemporary and fresh feel to the scheme, with broad appeal to potential homeowners. The show apartment reflects current trends and includes hints of brass, marble, and geometric shapes. A relatively neutral colour palette has been enhanced using pops of colour and geometric textured fabrics and finishes – a nod to the chevrons and patterns in the Manchester New Square marketing material.

“The hi-spec Siematic ‘Pure’ range kitchens and quality bathrooms have been dressed using modern accessories. Soft close drawers and cabinets, Corian worktops, floor to ceiling acoustic windows, wardrobe lighting and dual aspect living spaces all contribute to a peaceful setting, only moments from a vibrant city with everything on your doorstep.”
