The Peggy & Medina collections by Bluebellgray are vibrant collections with drapery and upholstery fabrics that explore the growing landscape around the Scottish Borders. Key features include deep blue inky tones that reflect the ever changing sky and block colours that evoke aerial views of fields from above. Fresh and modern fabrics that will add joy to your interior.

Layers of deep cornflower blue to the lightest, translucent pale blue, reflect the ever-changing shades of the sea and sky. A fresh take on a classic colour combination in signature Bluebellgray style.

Tips & How To

Windows play a major role in controlling the temperature within a home. During winter it is easy to lose heat, and in summer it is easy to overheat a home if windows are not appropriately covered. Professionally fitted, lined drapery can reduce window heat loss by 40-60% when closed*. Working all year round, lined drapery is an important tool in creating a thermal insulation barrier.
