Landscaper Ruth Willmott won a gold medal at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show this week with her Morris & Co. garden. Based on prints by renowned textile designer William Morris, Ruth used two of her intricate designs –Trellis and Willow branch – as the main source of inspiration for his winning presentation.
Trellis – Morris’ first wallpaper design from 1864 is a striking mix of blue birds, red roses and thick green foliage. On how the print influenced her, Ruth said Country life: “When I first saw[[[[Trellis}, the layout of the garden immediately came to mind, inspired by the grid pattern of the trellis which will be reflected in a series of interconnecting paths around the garden.”
The second impression, willow branchwas designed in 1864. One of Morris’ most iconic designs, it is edged with curved willow branches and a soft, understated bottom.
