#DesignUpScotland - a hashtag to help pull together the Scottish interiors community.

Edinburgh-based photographer and textile designer Mairi Helena has collaborated with fellow interiors blogger Fiona Cameron to develop a hashtag on Instagram to help bring together the thriving Scottish interiors scene.

Mairi says, "We both feel passionately about supporting Scottish interiors talent, whether emerging or established,and would like to introduce the tag #designupscotland to raise awareness of the best of Scottish interiors among our readers and followers."

Much like the ethos behind Textiles Scotland, Mairi and Fiona believe that together we can build a tag that unites the vibrant, dynamic interiors community in Scotland and showcases the best of the Scottish interiors scene.

If you are a designer, retailer, publisher, influencer or an interiors addict; living or working in Scotland, and your work or interests represent fresh, expressive, contemporary Scottish interiors then please tag your interiors posts #designupscotland.

This project aims to create an easy way of searching brands, retailers, interior stylists, interior bloggers, makers, designers within the country who all either create, write or produce Scottish interiors.

This tag will act as a directory of Scottish interiors brands, and also create opportunities for making real life connections and collaborations to help the interiors community thrive.

If you are a Scottish interiors brand and are interested in your brand or designs being featured on Around The Houses, they would love to hear from you. Take the opportunity to tell your story. How does your connection with Scotland influence your work? Get in touch with Mairi on info@mairihelena.co.uk.
