Cats and Christmas tress πŸŽ„πŸ˜„πŸ˜Ί the tree looks really bare in places because I let the kids decorate it, so all the decorations went on one side only πŸ€”πŸ˜‚ kind of want to reposition stuff but then I also think it’s kinda cute how they’ve done it so tempted just to roll with it πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ˜„ our tree has no theme, just collected bits and pieces over the years and decorations the kids have made......I’ve given up on all those cute retro style glass ornaments because they are so delicate and with cats and kids they all just fall off and smash 😬 I still love tinsel (controversial!) and this year had a notion for really thin 70’s style tinsel that I scoured the internet for and eventually tracked some down from @thehambledon ✨✨✨ I also love 70’s style coloured lights, these ones (from Dobbies) look like acorns and I LOVE them because they have pink in them πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ’•πŸŽ„and if this tree makes it to January 1st without this cat pulling it over it will be a Christmas miracle πŸ˜‚πŸŽ„πŸ˜Ί tell me I’m not the only one who loves tinsel?!😜

Interrupting my Lapland spam for 2 things....... There’s still 2 tickets left for our β€˜meet the designer behind the brand’ event this Thursday in our Glasgow store πŸ˜€ I’ll be giving a talk on my business, how it started, and lots of insight into how I grew it and holding a Q&A sessionπŸ‘πŸ» plus there will be festive food and drinks, a behind the scenes studio tour and a first look at our brand new spring collection before anyone else πŸ™ŒπŸ» And secondly we have 2 pretty new notebooks to add to our notebook collection, made from our β€˜peggy’ and β€˜seafield’ prints πŸ’• perfect gift for a colour lover, or obsessive note book collector/list writer (like meπŸ™ˆ) Looking forward to meeting some of you lovely lot on Thursday!

Lapland.......not sure I’ve ever travelled to somewhere that took my breath away this much before.....mainly because it is SO beautiful.....I can’t even put into words how magical it is......and because it is -20 C β„οΈπŸ˜„β„οΈβ„οΈβ„οΈβ„οΈβ„οΈβ„οΈβ„οΈπŸŽ…πŸ»

This is the incredible original canvas of β€œSod it, let’s paint it pink”. This title may or may not be the PG version of what was actually said after weeks of deliberating over paint colours for our new studio πŸ™ŠπŸ’•πŸ€£ Team BBG x

While Fi is out of the studio this week it gives us the chance to tell you a few wee funny stories from team BBG... When Fi first started talking about opening a shop, and buying in some new products to complete the range, bags were mentioned... a lot πŸ‘œ So much so that on one buying trip we found SO many amazing bags that we were genuinely concerned that we might have to open a bag shop to house them all! We had only 1 day to get round a 7 hall trade show and it took us until 3pm(!) to get out of Hall 1... where the bags are! πŸ˜‚

We were so lucky to find a wonderful independent company who hand makes bags in Spain -Bluebellgray fabric, a beautiful braided leather strap, and most importantly... pom poms! πŸ’•
Available now in our Hyndland shop and online!

Colour inside is always my antidote to πŸŒ§πŸŒ§β„οΈβ„οΈπŸŒ§πŸŒ§πŸŒ§β„οΈβ„οΈπŸŒ§πŸŒ§ outside πŸŒˆπŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ’• new print β€˜sod it let’s paint it pink’ available online 😘

Layering up textures, plains and patterns all together is my favourite way to style a bedroom πŸ™ŒπŸ» πŸ› I love a patterned duvet, but if a plain duvet is more your thing, you can get pattern into a bedroom in other ways, like patterned cushions, lampshades or quilts πŸ’• in this room I’ve layered up beautiful soft linen bedding (love the soft frill edge around the pillowcases 😍) with a vintage kantha quilt from India and patterned Bluebellgray cushions with vintage kantha cushions behind πŸ’• similar colours in the quilt and cushions bring it together and the softness of the linen bedding works with the textures in the quilt and cushions πŸ’• the pink table against the turquoise wall is another way to layer in colour 🌈 this is my dream bedroom β€οΈβ˜οΈπŸ˜€ credits: quilt and linen bedding available in store in our glasgow shop.
