Win a William Morris inspired weekend with Dovecot Studios, Paul Kitching 21212 and John Lewis & Partners Edinburgh

Let Edinburgh, one of the world’s great cities, be your style guide for this fantastic prize, an overnight stay in Edinburgh inspired by Morris & Co. Dovecot Studios have teamed up with John Lewis & Partners Edinburgh and Paul Kitching's 21212 for this special competition. 

The prize:

  • Two tickets for The Art of Wallpaper – Morris & Co. exhibition at Dovecot Studios
  • A luxury overnight stay in a Georgian Town House at Paul Kitching’s 21212 
  • A 60-min Style Advice session with the home design team at John Lewis & Partners Edinburgh. 

Get inspiring ideas for your home styling plans at The Art of Wallpaper – Morris & Co. exhibition at Dovecot Studios; a contemporary centre for art, design and textiles and a world-renowned tapestry studio. 

The exhibition will take you through over 130 original wallpaper samples from the Morris & Co. archives. Including works from notable designers of the time and interior layouts, the exhibition will place the visitor into the 19th and 20th-century interiors these wallpapers were made for.

Then let the home design team at John Lewis and Partners, Edinburgh help you bring your home styling ideas to life. A 60-minute style advice session (in person or virtual) will offer inspiration for an area of your home, creating a look that works for you. They will provide digital mood boards and a 3D visualisation of your new space.

Enjoy an overnight stay at Paul Kitching’s 21212. Sitting in a listed Georgian townhouse on Edinburgh’s Royal Terrace and set over four floors, it’s light, spacious and airy. The space is elegant, sumptuously decorated and enjoys commanding views to the Firth of Forth and beyond from the upper-level rooms. Throughout the building, many of the period features have been retained, complemented by contemporary lighting and designer furnishing.

Take the opportunity to visit Paul Kitching’s restaurant, which offers views of the open kitchen. The menu stays true to Paul’s contemporary French cooking style but with a unique approach to his menu combinations
