The colors and textures of the Scottish landscape are Mairi’s biggest inspiration. «Often I am found escaping to the outdoors and photographing the enlivening flora and fauna that surrounds us,» she says. Mairi transforms this natural inspiration into dynamic abstract patterns for Mairi Helena, a textile and wallpaper company she runs from this colorful Edinburgh house. Not surprisingly, her energetic patterns envelop many of the home’s surfaces, from walls, to cushions to lampshades and more.
