Spring saw the Ned turn into surely one of London's biggest displays of beautiful and rare peonies - we filled every corner with different, and difficult-to-find, varieties.
From luxurious velvet red peonies in Lutyen's Grill and Ned's Club to huge crimson varieties in Cowshed and brighter lemon varieties in Barber and Parlour. We even sourced some scented tree peonies for the new Trish McEvoy Powder Room - these were perfection.
Sadly the peony season has ended for another year, but we are embracing the change in season and the chance to fill the Ned with the best of summer. Arrangements containing lovely hydrangea and roses, coupled with fresh summer foliage, are currently enjoying their tenure at the Ned. And, in the lobby, pampas grass has made way for peach and golden eremurus and the finest orchids for the added 'wow' factor. We are also loving the weekly tropical arrangements for Kaia, filled with exotic leaves and orchids.
The Ned is a visionary (and sensory) overload and a creative's dream. If you haven't been yet, our advice is to book now!
