Scottish-inspired interior design ideas
How to Bring the Highlands into your own Home
With staycations on the rise, and holiday homes being snapped up quicker than a paddling pool on a hot summer's day, a themed interior allows us to feel like we’re somewhere else. Popular for those who wish to reminisce about holidays gone by, or for those wanting to decorate their rental cottages in a truly immersive way that reflects the natural environment, themed homeware is the perfect way to add a touch or charming character into interiors.
Add Touches of Tartan
Woven into Scotland’s heritage, tartan makes a statement in the home. Often associated with shades of bold red, you might be thinking tartan is too bold for your home, however there are many variations to choose from. Often created with soft green, grey or blue hues which complement a multitude of interiors, tartan doesn’t have to mean vibrant and red! We suggest choosing a colour that works in harmony with your home, whether a scattering of check cushions in a muted shade, or a statement armchair with a gorgeous subtle tartan check, bringing in this nostalgic fabric is guaranteed to inject a touch of highland beauty into the home.
Adorn Walls with Scottish Art
A quick and easy update, adorn walls with Scottish art and you’ll see your theme instantly come to life. From stags roaming through the valleys, to thistles and shaggy highland cows, any of these truly Scottish art pieces will add sentimental value to a room.
Accessorise the Home with Accent Cushions
With a whole range of Scottish-inspired cushions to choose from you may be wondering which ones to purchase. If tartan is more you, we suggest adorning your sofa with cushions in the same tartan fabric used in your armchair. To add depth to the room, opt for a second cushion in a plain fabric which complements the check. For example, if you chose the Tavistock Heather Armchair, opt for a matching cushion in the same fabric and pair with a couple of purple cushions to tie the look together. If tartan isn’t for you, then add any of our Scottish themed printed cushions to a plain sofa or chair and complete the look with a matching footstool a super cute and inviting snug room.
