Since winning with his bold, colourful designs on Interior Design Masters last year, Banjo Beale has gone on to host Scotland's Home of the Year, as well as his very own BBC series (which we can't get enough of), Designing the Hebrides. Now he's adding to his list of accolades by releasing an exclusive range with the Tartan Blanket Co, and boy are we excited. These blankets are cute and eco-friendly - sign us up stat.

How he finds the time to between his own interior work and making cheese from his home on the Isle of Mull, we'll never know, but we're grateful for him and for this beautiful collection...

Banjo Beale x Tartan Blanket Co

There are three stylish blanket designs in the limited range (plus a picnic blanket), taking inspiration from the Hinterlands of his native Australia to the Highlands of Scotland, each one encapsulates an element of Banjo's distinctive style and use of colour.

There are pastel shades, statement stripes and a traditional tartan design brought up to date for modern homes, so there's something for every house and style.

I like to come up with a story for my blankets. I imagined it so that they can travel from Australia to the Scottish highlands and they’ll still be perfectly in place wherever they are. They’re natural, playful, grounding - and a little bit of fun.

The blankets are also made from recycled wool, with each blanket saving on average six woolly garments from landfill. Whatsmore, as part of TBCo’s Positive Impact Pledge, 2% of each blanket purchased will be donated to charity.

As well as being sustainable the blankets are practical and cosy for you on nippier days and nights thanks to the woollen material. It's even proven to help you get a better night's sleep.

As the Tartan Blanket Co explains, 'By adding wool to your nightly routine, it's been proven to help you drift off faster and have a deeper sleep. This is because the natural fibres of wool are temperature regulating, which keeps you cool when you’re warm and warm when you’re cold!' Stylish, sustainable, and sleep regulating? Yes please.

We love this contemporary take on a traditional tartan pattern and this colour combo screams Banjo. This design would work a treat in mid-century modern homes thanks to the rusty orange and mustard shades, as well as light, airy Edwardian houses and cottagecore schemes to add a punch of bold colour.
