Pashley Manor

September 2023

We visited Pashley Manor Gardens this month, an award winning, privatly owned garden on the border of Kent and Sussex.  The weather this September has been barmy, and it was a beautiful summers day.  We strolled around 11 acres of beautiful herbaceous borders and stunning vistas followed by a spot of afternoon tea on the terrace with delicious homemade and locally sourced food from the Garden Room café.

One of the finest gardens in England, a visit to Pashley Manor is a great day out with the family.

Walking around the gardens felt tranquil and private, there were ducks and a black swan on the water, and the colours to be found were beautiful.  There were striking bronze sculptures to be seen all around the gardens too, and we captured some of our own stunning photographs to share with you.

A concept created inspired by our visit to Pashley Manor Gardens

We are always seeking inspirations for our design schemes and used our photographs of the gardens to form a design direction.  We homed in on the brick colours of the manor and walled garden, teamed with the greens and red hues of the plants to create this look.  The rug we have featured here reminds us of the reflections of the water.  The coffee table and armchair are indoor/outdoor furniture to add the essence of the relaxed feeling of the day which is complemented by the pendant light fitting.  Although the manor itself is not open to the public, we could imagine this style sitting very comfortably in the surroundings – and perhaps a more modern take on what you might expect to find.  We love to fuse our styling to create unique concepts, and drawing upon our own photographs allows us to experiment with new ideas.

All products featured are part of our curated collections of furniture, lighting and accessories.
