Unique Handmade sustainable designs by Blue Hydrangea
Blue Hydrangea is a cottage industry that prides itself in producing
handmade and upcycled pieces using both recycled and sustainable materials
to produce beautiful, unique furnishings that will enhance your home.
Inspired by the creativity of craftsmen and women I know in this country
and those I have met on my travels in Kenya, I aim to be as creative and
resourceful as possible with the materials I use. Based in Highworth,
Wiltshire on the edge of the Cotswolds and surrounded by beautiful
countryside and stunning towns and villages it would be very easy to stay
put but I love visiting other areas of this beautiful country, taking
part in markets and fairs enables me to do so.
"Please visit my shop for a selection of furniture and soft furnishings
including cushions, and other decorative pieces."
Blue Hydrangea is about what works with the way we live now. It is about
being mindful of the things that make us happy; taking inspiration from
furnishings, old and the new and being sustainable and not 'throw away'.
I am fascinated by the concept of 'cradle to cradle' design and like to think
not only of how I can upcycle but how my pieces can themselves be reused.
My love of the handmade and of natural materials remains and I suspect that
my relationship with hessian, timber and ceramics goes all the way back to
the shed in my grandparents garden with the beautiful blue hydrangea
