British designer Matthew Williamson teamed with floral artist Rebecca Louise Law to revamp the courtyard of Blakes Hotel London into the Hendrick’s Horticultural Oasis, open daily from 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. through July 14. Inspired by the botanical makeup of Hendrick’s Gin, the space was curated with British roses, juniper berries, peonies, hydrangeas and lavender alongside taxidermy and vintage garden furniture.

“I was given free rein creatively over the space, which is great as I can be true to my own personal design DNA,” Williamson said. “I aimed to create a magical oasis for guests to escape the hustle and bustle of London. I’ve used my Osborne & Little fabrics from the Samana collection, which work so well in the space.” He also collaborated with Rockett St. George to source the furniture, while Law’s display in the glass “birdcage” summer house “transforms the space into a wonderful floral sensory experience.”
