STEPPING into the studio space of designer Carol Lake is like entering a botanical paradise. The shop displays a beautifully- curated selection of Carol’s framed, floral-inspired artwork, alongside products like scarves, cushions, robes and fabric by the metre. Each design starts life as a piece of Carol’s original hand-painted work, and is adapted into a covetable object of beauty. Alongside her own wares, Carol also stocks a small collection of botanically-inspired products from other makers. In 2019, the studio will be hosting a series of pop-up tearooms, which will feature Carol working alongside a wonderful cook to offer guests a blossoming dining experience.
