In a rare moment of peace, I sat under the eucalyptus tree in my garden. I happened to notice a clump of ruby red leaves.
I thought eucalyptus trees were evergreens but I realised this was its ‘autumn’ colour. I loved the smokey palette of greens and the contrast with the red leaves and the interplay of colours and shapes. I started out using the green and red palette to begin with but it swiftly developed into a range of colourful, bright, eye-catching cushion designs.
