Interior Picks Inspired By The Great English Garden

Photo 1 of
  • Matthew Williamson x Pooky

    Pooky x Matthew Williamson English Garden chandelier, £380.

  • Burleigh Pink Asiatic Pheasants teacup, £21, and tea saucer, £11.

    Burleigh’s classic Asiatic Pheasants pattern brings a touch of British nostalgia to any tablescape.

  • John Lewis Pyramid lantern, £35.

    A few lanterns are the trick to light any compact space beautifully. With brass detailing, glass panelled sides and a pyramid-shaped top this one is ideal to create a warm ambience. Plus, it’s weatherproof enough for outdoor use.

  • Ceraudo Madeleine chair, £210.

    Just add a picnic basket and a cosy tweed blanket to the elegant Madeleine chair. If you’d like to mix up your colour scheme: this pretty perch comes in three alternative shades.

  • Ralph Lauren Vintage Dauphine wallpaper, £83 a roll.

    Ralph Lauren’s classic Dauphine wallpaper is a delicate, yet romantic paper with timeless vintage appeal. This porcelain blue is the classic choice, but there are eight further shades to choose from.

  • Rosamund Coady Onion plate, £85.

    Independent ceramicist Rosamund Coady has seen to it that no dinner time will ever be boring again. Going straight to the top of our wishlist is this wonky onion-inspired plate.

  • Nina Campbell English Meadow tablemat, £27.50.

    Hand embroidered with wild flowers, this placemat from Nina Campbell is made from 100% cotton. Lay it out with the matching English Meadow napkins for the full effect.

  • Lily of the Valley Collection flower blue glass, £95.

    With their fluted, petal like shape it’s easy to see the Lily of the Valley inspiration in Dior’s flower-blue glasses.  A pop of understated luxury, that works for everyday use too.

  • YOLKE Lemon print linen napkins, £64 for four.

    Trying to avoid going all out floral? Yolke’s linen lemon napkins have a more contemporary feel with this bold, modern print.

  • Matilda Goad Woven ceramic lamp in Jade, £280.

    While this verdant-green lamp base may look like it’s woven from wicker, it actually has a cleverly-made ceramic base. Add one of Matilda Goad’s scalloped shades to complete the look.

  • St Eval Tomato & Basil candle, £10.80.

    Get into the garden mood. Green tomato and sweet basil combine in this St Eval candle, inspired by the refreshing, heady hues of an English vegetable patch.

  • Mimi Pickard Watermelon fabric in green pink, POA.

    Composed of linen and cotton, Mimi Pickard’s retro-feel Watermelon print comes in five different colourways to choose from. This green and pink option is perfect to upcycle a retired cushion or chair.

  • Tate & Darby Scalloped jute rug, £

    Handmade in India, Tate & Darby’s gorgeous jute rugs are rustic yet playful: with scalloped edges and a choice of different border colours.

  • Caravane Dayer salad bowl, €125.

    A beautiful piece of pottery never goes out of style. Caravane’s Dayer bowl is practical yet pretty.
