You cant beat a working day meandering around the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew here in London. Of course, this is not meant as an advertisement for the place, but to research new concepts for Commercial environments this is an incredible place to begin. Natural forms in repetition and radiating formats, examples of gravity defying plants, colour and texture and combinations of all of these, this is certainly the place to begin. Winter time is also spectacular, particularly when it snows when you can make your way straight to the Palm houses for a bit of exotica in a tropical climate and yet its freezing outside. With the oldest and largest glasses houses in the world (unless Dubai make a faux version or attempt to buy these ones) these ooze history and depth that really cant help but inspire you.
