Mairi’s Tips on Individual & Inspirational Design
  1. Follow your passion. I gain my design inspiration from my love of exploring Scotland, in particular the West Coast. The changing light, dramatic skies, vast beaches, and abundant flora and fauna... Scotland's colour palette is mesmerising, engaging, and ever-changing. 
  2. Look to nature for colour ideas. I find that the natural world always seems to blend colour beautifully. Mother nature always gets it right when it comes to mixing hues and is always my 'go-to' for new colourways.
  3. Create your own look. Make your space personal to you. My design journey started with moving to our very first home. I couldn't find a wallpaper that matched my idea of 'bringing the highlands into the home' and so I created my own from photographs of our travels. The wallpaper reflects my journeys across the Scottish isles with my family.
