Simplicity Reigns at Chelsea

After parades of parties where outrageous hats ruled ... . the judges for the
Best in Show trophy have declared a victory for simplicity. A blend of
contemporary design & old fashion cottage garden blooms ,
designed by Ulf Nordfjell, utilized an understated palette which seemed
to beckon one to enter a quiet retreat and leave a chaotic world behind.


A very appealing invitation, indeed.

It is beautiful, isn't it? I've always loved all white flowers. Tranquillity.

This is gorgeous and quite a change for the RHS. The design and layout is very beautiful and the simplicity of it all rather lovely, xv.
