The Old Manse of Blair

TYPE: Hospitality
LOCATION: Pitlochry, UK
COMPLETED: 2020

A longstanding collaborative relationship lead to a sequence of unique projects with The Old Manse of Blair, an award winning five-star boutique hotel set within the Cairngorm National Park.



Kingfisher drapes, flooding into three velvety puddles before the expanse of windows in The Old Manse Of Blair’s gorgeous Steading kitchen, gazed upon by plump little co-ordinating Kingfisher cushions... This is a Highland retreat which dreams are made of.

We are honoured to have such a fantastic relationship with the Old Manse of Blair and talented owner Anne MacDonald whose conceptual approach of marrying both traditional and contemporary design is second to none. Featuring a number of our signature artworks within the house itself alongside many of the steading conversions.

This is truly Scottish hospitality at it's finest.





Finn Stag Superluxe Velvet Drapes





Summer 2020 brought another wonderful opportunity to work alongside the Old Manse of Blair in the development of their new steading suite conversions : the Railway Cottage, Ticket Office and Old Stables. This project included creation of completely custom artwork to feature upon drapery, blinds and soft furnishings.

From cascades of velvety drapes to bespoke roman blinds and custom designed upholstered tweed headboards with equestrian saddle strap detailing. Utilising our treasured relationships with local artisan makers and craftsmen, the resulting aesthetic of this project is unlike any other throughout the Scottish Highlands, and far beyond.
