Sophie's stunning bedroom on the Isle of Bute.

Have you ever dreamed of escaping to a charming guest bedroom on the picturesque Isle of Bute? Well, Sophie has made that dream a reality with her stunning room featuring my Bloomsbury Moth wallpaper. But that's not all - she has added some local flair with design elements sourced from Bute Fabrics ltd.

What makes Bute so special?

Situated within the Firth of Clyde, Bute is a hidden gem steeped in history. From heather-covered moorland to sweeping beaches, the island offers a diverse range of landscapes that serve as a constant source of inspiration for local artisans.

Who are Bute Fabrics ltd?

Founded in 1947 by the 5th Marquess of Bute, Bute Fabrics ltd has a rich history of providing employment opportunities for service people returning home. Their fabrics, used in to cover the easy chair as a throw on the bed, showcase the vibrant colours and textures of the island's landscapes.

Texture, Colour & interest

Sophie used my Bloomsbury Moth wallpaper as a backdrop, and complemented it with stunning design elements, creating a room full of wonder and texture.

I love how she has used a gray blue above the picture rail that is reminiscence of  stormy seas and Scottish skies. And how she has used the easy chair, lampshade and throw to pull out colours from the wallpaper. The room has lots of texture and pattern, but because she has stuck to a cohesive colour palette - it feels calming and restful, and not overwhelming.

Give it a go!

So, next time you're looking to add a touch of charm to your space, why not take a page out of Sophie's book, create a cohesive colour palette and use it to incorporate some local flair into your room? Who knows, you might just feel like you've escaped to the Isle of Bute without ever leaving your home!
