Seeking inspiration: an autumn walk in Greenwich Park
People often ask where I get inspiration and ideas for my interior design. It may well be true that you can find inspiration in anything and anywhere, but I think you can’t beat getting out in the fresh air and seeing what is happening in the natural world when looking for fresh ideas. And you can’t beat autumn for reminders of change: the natural cycle of abundance, decay, death, regeneration and rebirth is impossible to ignore at this time of year. Each day brings deeper hues to the leaves clinging on trees. There’s a freshness in the air that hasn’t been there for months. Here are some photographs from a recent early autumn walk in Greenwich Park.
King William IV guards the entrance to the Royal Park.
Nelson’s ship with its colourful sails
The change in leaf colour is later than usual this year after our Indian summer. But it has now started..
The view across to The Royal Observatory
General Wolfe keeping an eye on things
Classic view of the Queens House and the Old Royal Naval College with Canary Wharf in the background..
..and looking towards the City with its oddly shaped towers
Lots of foragers about. These ladies and the squirrels were both after the sweet chestnuts
There is plenty to go around
Beautiful textures – as well as colours – everywhere
