When turning 91 this year, on 21st April, Queen Elizabeth II will be the longest reigning British monarch and the oldest serving Head of State. After celebrating 65 years on the throne, she will also be the first English queen or king in history to reach a Sapphire Jubilee. Her Majesty’s Palace Gardens are an outstanding royal treasure and are the inspiration behind many floral paintings and prints.
Due to their popularity, they have been translated into beautiful soft furnishing designs perfect for those looking to bring natural motifs into their homes. To enhance a traditional country inspired interior, use neutrals to create an English garden style or go for bolder sized prints and colours to recreate an eclectic English cottage style.
