Happy New Year!
We celebrated the New Year in Edinburgh with impressive fireworks, now home there is an equally beautiful celebration of newness – though somewhat quieter, the snowdrops have pushed through, their fresh green shoots and pure white flowers are a very welcome sight indeed!
Speaking of new and fresh… We are currently shut for a few weeks, while we attend to some maintenance – making sure everything is perfect for a new season of B&B guests, and Helen is enjoying the smell of fresh paint!
Also new for 2018 is Helen‘s Phine Art project, fulfilling our desire to bring our guests a selection of affordable art. Contemporary paintings, drawings and sculpture will soon be on display at Hill House, and will be available for guests to purchase. There will also be an online catalogue available soon from this website.
We are thrilled to announce that the first exhibition will be Elphick & Elphick; a delicious selection of tactile, figurative and landscape sculpture in stone and bronze, along with landscape painting inspired by the warmer climes of Greece, and beautiful figurative drawings in ink and pastel which exquisitely capture the movement and elegance of dance. We look forward to bringing you full details of this exciting new project very shortly, and hope that you feel as inspired as we are by these beautiful pieces.
Until then we wish guests, past and future a very Happy New Year… and look forward to seeing you soon!
