Art in the Home.. I just love the vibrant colours used in this collection of gorgeous floral hand painted flowers on cushions and homeware by Bluebellgray.
Exciting young Scottish design company Bluebellgray launched its first collection of home textile products in July 2009
Each design is painted by hand in the Bluebellgray studio in Scotland using vibrant watercolours before being printed onto the softest natural cottons and linens using state of the art printing technology to capture every brush stoke and colour.
Influenced by a love of colour and all things floral, from summer meadows to city window boxes, the designs are unique and special. Without the restraints of traditional printing, colours are infinite and repeats are not restricted.
Passionate about keeping things local and utilising local skills, everything is printed and made in the UK.
The design philosophy behind the brand adheres to the ‘eclectic mix’ school of thought, encouraging the designs to sit beside flea market finds and family heirlooms.
As Fiona says ‘it’s ok when things don’t match, if you love it- go with it!’ The designs are aimed at people looking for something unique and individual for their home, an antidote to mass production.
