Born to Scottish parents, based in the Isle of Man and Bedford, Baillie Scott (1865-1945) is probably best known today for his house Blackwell in Cumbria. Hermann Muthesius described Blackwell as “…one of the most attractive creations that the new movement in house-building has produced” and credited Baillie Scott with the “new idea of the interior as an autonomous work of art…each room is an individual creation.” Baillie Scott spent 12 years living and working in Bedford, where he set up his architectural practice (Baillie Scott designed houses can be seen in Biddenham) and worked for both Liberty’s of London and John P. White’s Pyghtle Works of Bedford, establishing himself as a leader of the Arts and Crafts Movement.
