Bold Scottish Design

The G&V Royal Mile Hotel Edinburgh is one of the Quorvus Collection of hotels.

We’re talking serious luxury meets the best of bold, contemporary Scottish art and design.

One of my favourite G&V suites was created by ‘Timorous Beasties’ designers Alistair McCauley and Paul Simmons.

Timorous Beasties’ textiles are an exhilarating mix of traditional Scottish motifs with a dark urban under-current.

I particularly adore their one-off re-upholstered vintage furniture pieces.

Older pieces of furniture can look outstanding updated with contemporary upholstery.

If you’re lucky enough to have a family hand-me-down or to find a second-hand gem – have it re-upholstered in a fabulous bold fabric – perhaps even one from Timorous Beasties.
