at home with ‘bluebellgray’

So, it’s pretty grim outside at the moment, isn’t it (unless you’re in sunnier climes than London town)… but I’ve found just the thing to brighten up your day. I came across these images in the archives of the always-inspiring blog Design*Sponge, and had to share them with you. This is another home that I’ve fallen pretty hard for, especially since it involves my current fixation: cushions with pom-poms (or anything with pom-poms, come to that). But mostly because of the glorious burst of colour in every room. It doesn’t matter how gray it is outside, the vibrant interior would be an instant mood lifter.

This Georgian conversion in Glasgow belongs to Fiona Douglas, a designer who started her business Bluebellgray along with her fiancé, Phil, after studying painting at the Glasgow School and then realising her passion lay with textiles. Clearly influenced by colour and all things floral, Fiona’s designs are strikingly unique, and she ensures that everything is printed and made in the UK for an authentically local feel.

Fiona believes that, “It’s ok when things don’t match, if you love it, go with it!”. I couldn’t agree more.

Bluebellgray’s collection currently includes limited edition cushions and throws as well as lampshades and bone china mugs, with a new bedlinen line and fabric range coming this spring. Here are some of Fiona’s creations that I’d love to find a place for in my home:

And how much do you want to go home and colour coordinate your books now?!
