'This pattern is one of four designs inspired by my trips to the Green Hotel, Mysore, India. There are lots of places within the hotel and its surrounding grounds to sit and relax, but one of my favourite places is the coffee shop, which is situated towards the back of the building within a lovely atrium, which in turn features a terracotta tiled floor and a central open garden of vines and shrubs.
This design is based on two aspects of the hotel gardens: the floor tiles found within the atrium coffee shop and the formal, quilt-like layout of the main garden, which sits to the front of the hotel. The main garden provides another lovely place to relax and features walled flowerbeds full of lovely gold, orange and pink marigolds, fresh green lawns and smartly pruned bushes. In the evening the garden takes on a magical quality when thousands of creamy fairy lights twinkle in the foliage.'
