It seems that the whole world has gone garden mad! It has even hit the fashion industry with Monique Lhuillier's S/S collection based on the theme 'Garden of Eden'. The theme of 'Garden' really does offer endless scope and ability to take your work in any direction. I however have chosen to explore the tropical offerings of botanical gardens such as the National Botanic Garden of Wales and Kew Gardens. Bright, exotic colours are perfect for interiors and a nice break from all the dull beiges and taupes that have adorned our houses for the past few years.
