If like us, you can’t get enough of the stunning, floral and watercolour designs from Glaswegian design house bluebellgray, then you’ll be pleased to know their latest collection is just as gorgeous but with a slightly more subtle palette for autumn.
To date, each original bluebellgray design has been created by designer and founder of the company, Fi Douglas, hand painted in the bluebellgray studio in Glasgow, Scotland. However this latest collection brings about a special collaboration created with her brother, Calum Douglas. Following in his sister’s footsteps, Calum graduated from the prestigious Glasgow School of Art earlier this year and took inspiration for the collection from the colours and landscapes of Iceland.
From the collection, ‘Dalvik’ and ‘Impressionist Teal’ are both born from Calum’s intuitive pencil marks, with splashes of subtle watercolour- staying true to the bluebellgray style. Both brother and sister find themselves drawn to turquoise colour palettes and these evocative scribble sketches are captured perfectly by state of the art digital printing.
1. Impressionist Teal Landscape, £150, 120cm x 45xm; 2. Dalvik Piper, £75, 45cm x 45cm; 3. Impressionist Teal Piper, £70, 45cm x 45cm all from the Calum Colloboration at bluebellgray.
Dalvik fabric and Impressionist Teal fabric both available by the metre at £60 per m, bluebellgray.
For Fi, the collaboration with her brother couldn’t have come soon enough.
“To collaborate with Calum is dream come true for me- I have watched his creative side flourish through the years and he really has his own unique way of interpreting his surroundings. It’s so wonderful to be able to add this new and fresh dimension to the bluebellgray collections whilst keeping it in the family!”
Aside from the collection with her brother, Fi also has a new range ready for autumn/winter in the form of her new super chunky, hand knitted, Merino wool Sanday throws.
Left: Sanday Ecru throw, £225; Right: Sanday Cerise throw, £225 both bluebellgray.
Available in 2 colour ways, the natural ecru offers a luxe neutral option whilst the signature bluebellgray cerise option is the showstopper piece. Ready for the colder months ahead, the throws will add a real style statement to your home and are an easy way to update a room during the changing seasons.
