Last Thursday evening bluebellgray attended the House Beautiful Awards, held in the London Science Museum. A short flight down from Glasgow and a race across London in rush hour ensured that heartbeats were already racing when we joined the drinks reception. A cool glass of bubbly helped though!
The awards were introduced by Julia Goodwin, the editor, and presented by many exciting names including Lisa Stickley, Oliver Heath, and Mary Berry. The Best Soft Furnishings award popped up on the imax screen including our very own Red Rose Collection. Oliver Heath read out the winner of the gold award... bluebellgray. Hearts skipped a beat. Wendy, our pr and marketing girl, was honoured to receive the award on Fi's behalf (she was attending the prestigious British Fair at Hankyu department store in Japan).
Even back in rainy Glasgow the award is lighting up the studio and we are all still a little overwhelmed. To be recognised by such a well respected publication is a huge achievement for us as a team and, of course, especially for Fi who hand paints all the original designs. A dream come true.
