To bring warmth and character to what could otherwise be quite a cool interior, natural textures such as sheepskin rugs and cosy wool throws have been used everywhere. There are little personal and quirky touches in each room such as this dog lamp base, and moose and stag bottle stoppers in the dining room. In the lounge the shelves are filled with favourite novels and travel books ready for an evening spent curled up in front of the inviting wood burning stove. Cacti and succulent plants bring nature indoors and add the finishing touches to this perfect little lodge.
We promised we would share some of the secrets of our lovely lodge interiors with you, so here is the first blog post in our new series for 2018.
First off - sheepskins and deerhides, which feature in most of our lodges. They bring luxury and character and warmth to any home. If you’re in need of defrosting after a long day on the Cairngorm slopes or out walking, a sheepskin over your favourite cosy chair by the fire is the perfect place to curl up and will warm you back up almost instantly. Add to that the flickering flames and comforting woodsmoke aroma of the fire and you’ll probably be dozing off before you know it!
You can find beautiful sheepskins at the wonderful ww.skyeskyns.co.uk, based on the Isle of Skye.
