During the creation of this collection we, inevitably, turned to home for inspiration. A family house in Ariege where the French countryside thrives untamed is where the collection begins and ends. Morning walks through our garden and afternoon hikes through the countryside formed our ideas. 

Funnily enough the print dedicated to our own garden has very little to do with the French countryside, but everything to do with garden stories. In a shady corner we inherited a lone, shaggy palm, quickly marked for the chop.

However Susan the tyrannical gardener did not have her way. Two stubborn friends staying at the house petitioned for its survival and woke up early one morning to tidy it up and save it from firewood. Now it is much loved and provides a perfect reading spot.
