In honour of the Chelsea Flower Show, Pullman London St. Pancras’s lobby has transformed into a beautiful, upside down meadow.
And it’s bloomin’ lovely.
The breathtaking installation, created by London-based artist Anna Garforth, has been designed to resemble a wild meadow, scattered with shades of pinks and purples. The purples in particular were inspired by Pantone’s colour of 2018, Ultra Violet. (Yes, apparently that’s a thing.)
Bringing the outside inside, the installation is a spellbinding floral tapestry, filled with wild grasses, thistles and flora. All of Garforth’s work is made entirely from natural media, and always encourages her viewers to reconnect with nature. If you’d like to take things one step further, Garforth is hosting two flower pressing workshops throughout the exhibition‘s residency, one on May 15th and another on May 17th, from 6.30 – 8.30pm. They’ll be free to attend and anyone who turns up will learn to press flowers and how to forage for them in London’s wildest spots. (There’ll also be botanical cocktails and canapés if that gets your ears to prick up.)
The installation is free to visit and you’ll find it at Pullman London St. Pancras on Euston Road until Monday May 28th.
