Green sanctuary

Film director and producer Hilton Carter has transformed his apartment into an indoor jungle. He discovered his love of green plants under antler chandeliers sitting in a paradisaical garden café. Carter felt it was a spiritual experience, and want to create his own oasis of greenery. He then bought his first large plant, the fiddle leaf fig. Four years later ‘Frank’ has grown to be the crowning glory of his collection. Together with dozens of other plants, they now make up Carter’s own green sanctuary.

A plant looks up high to see the light, it never looks down to see the shadow

Bubblelicious

Bubblegraphy is a series of ceramic vases finished with a haze of soap bubbles. Blowing bubbles in the glaze and dipping the vase into it creates this artistic effect on the outside of the vase. A fabulous container for a plant bouquet.

Palm oasis

Cycas symbolises a long life: the plant survives ‘the tumult of the years’ and continues growing imperturbably. In Asia it is one of the four ‘holy plants’ which are planted beside temples almost as standard in order to please the gods (the other three are red Camellia, white Camellia and Ginkgo).

29 Green Treasures

She,
In the dark,
Found light
Brighter than many ever seen.

She,
Within herself,
Found loveliness,
Through the soul’s own mastery.

And know the world receives
From her dower:
The messages of the strength
Of inner power.
— Langston Hughes
