I’m so grateful to see my wallpapers in a variety of independent businesses across Scotland, from cafés to B&Bs. They’re a talking point for their vibrancy and connection to our landscape, adding just the right amount of personality and character to any space. They also help create an Instagram-worthy interior, which customers love to share online.

Seeing my work in these commercial settings has inspired me to offer a bespoke design service. Rather than utilising preconceived designs that are widely available, imagine if your business had its own, completely unique pattern? Inspired by the surrounding area, or perhaps from the branding palette, I’m excited about what form these projects could take. Please get in touch if this is something you’d be interested in.

I’ve selected a few of my favourite commercial uses of my wallpaper below.

Located in the picturesque Earlish on the Isle of Skye, Abhaig Boutique B&B is close to many of the must-see destinations the island, such as The Fairy Glen, The Quiraing, The Old Man of Storr and The Kilt Rock Waterfall. The An Bothan Dubh is a recent addition to the B&B’s offering, and is a detached suite that is separate from the main house. Vivienne and Steve chose my Island Botanist wallpaper behind the luxurious king size bed. Isn’t it gorgeous?

The Bonnie Badger is a charming restaurant with rooms in the heart of East Lothian. Celebrating Scottish artisan food and highlighting local craftsmanship, it’s an ideal place to showcase my wallpapers. They used my Bronze Flush Thistle wallpaper in their Ridge Suite, one of the 14 rooms. If you’re seeking a hearty lunch or a weekend away, I highly recommend The Bonnie Badger. A special treat awaits!

Simpsons is a family-run, independent café serving the most delicious local and homegrown food in Dundee. The fabulous interior was designed by Antonia of @savinggracesinteriors, who selected my wallpaper and velvet cushions in her scheme. I’m so thrilled to have my designs involved in such a stylish project!

Located on Turrif’s high street, The Rustic Grill is a cosy diner featuring the perfect blend of traditional and modern food. They showcase a great selection of locally-sourced ingredients, paired with a rustic, homely interior so you can sit back and relax as you enjoy your meal. Using my Bronze Flush Wallcovering, they’ve created this feature wall which adds a lovely warmth to their already beautiful interior. If you’re looking for a hearty meal with family in the Aberdeenshire area, then this is certainly the place!
