With the recent introduction of our new Instagram hashtag #designupscotland, I’m on a mission to raise the profile of Scottish Interior brands within the thriving interiors scene. Recently I wrote a blog dedicated to sourcing luxury Scottish Interiors to create a home with hygge. We chatted sheepskins from Skyeskyns and best fabrics from Bute Fabrics! For those who missed it – you can check it out here.

And so on this same thread, and with Scottish interior brands at the forefront of my mind, we’re talking ‘fabulous ways to turn your home into an artisan interior’. Specifically, 5 top products that together will help your house to sing artisan from the rooftops! We’re talking bespoke, luxury, quality finds that will act as long term treasure for your home. Inspired? Read on to find out more!

Home Decor Product Number Two

The Walls

If you’re searching for a fabulous feature wallpaper which oozes charm, textural details, originality and a subtle Scottish vibe, then I have it in one. Introducing our Mairi Helena Bronze Flush Thistle Wallpaper, a nod to Scotland with a hint of creative luxury for those seeking something a little different. With touches of a light yellow ochre in the Mairi Helena Bronze Flush design, the wallpaper sits beautifully with Wendy Morrison’s golden Sunburst, a floor story continued by the walls! Printed in the UK and inspired by Scotland’s flora, fauna and textures, it’s a form of art for the walls!

The Furniture

Be Original Be Beba. Check out this stunning Stark Chair by Beba Home. I just love their clean lines and contemporary look, making it so versatile to fit into any living space. The wooden frame is sustainably sourced and the upholstery can be tailored to suit your requirements – you could even get it upholstered in matching Mairi Helena Bronze Flush thistle fabric, well that’s a thought!

Home Decor Product Number Four

The Light

Yes…I might be slightly biased as this is the light we have in our kitchen sourced from Lifestory Edinburgh…but it has to be the best light ever. This loop light, which comes in copper or brass, (and in not just one but FIVE amazingly sophisticated outer colours from the ViJ5 range) is truly fabulous. It must be these slick lines again, allowing it to glide in elegantly into any living space. It allows you to have fun with mixing the more modern with traditional. I love ours!
