VINTAGE GUESTROOM – clairyfairy style



This is a small single guestroom we use for visitors to our home which is Stornoway in the Outer Hebrides. I love vintage style and I was so pleased to have found the rocking chair from Second Chance Restoration and Upcycling locally.

I was already working on some digital prints and it seemed ideal to use them to create a linen cushion seat pad. The crochet cushion is from my Modern Highland Villa range and is part of an ongoing blanket project using the same vibrant colours.

The painting was a watercolour by my late father of the Waverley steamer which paddles gracefully through the Summer on the Clyde.

There is a hand-painted bowl on the dresser used for toiletries which was brought back from Africa some years ago.

It’s still a little chilly here at night so a throw is sometimes necessary. However, it’s a relaxing little room and I just felt the cushion drew a contrast along with the furry throw bringing the simple look together.

My guest was very pleased after his long journey.
