See how Jamie Durie took his love for gardening and turned it into a passion for interior design.
Jamie Durie has travelled the world and been inspired by every corner of it. His new collection by Ardor reflects this adventurous approach, with touches of Asia here, there and everywhere.

After seeing the world and winning several garden show awards along the way, Jamie turned to his heritage, Sri Lanka and one of its first and foremost architects, Jeffery Bower, for inspiration.

It’s through him that Jamie discovered how interior and exterior designs can come together to bring a natural flair indoors.

“I believe he was the true pioneer of the outdoor and the master of bringing nature inside the home. This is the way I like to live and design. People intrinsically want to be close to nature.”
