Walter Blackie’s Bedroom Wardrobe. Mackintosh designed the wardrobe which was built so that Blackie’s chest of drawers would fit into it:-

Hill House in Helensburgh, Argyll and Bute, was designed by famous Scottish architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh. His wife, Margaret Macdonald Mackintosh, provided some of the interior designs.

The house was designed by Mackintosh for the publisher, Walter Blackie, (for whom Mackintosh also designed book covers.) Almost every aspect of the house is due to the Mackintoshes. Sadly it suffered from damp ingress and a cage has had to be erected to protect it until remedial steps can be taken to prevent water penetration.

The cage has, however, allowed a walkway to be built to give visitors unusual views of the house – and its roof. These show off some typical Mackintosh features:-
