Spotlight on: Midnight Garden Collection

Midnight Garden Collection by Chris Olson

Midnight Garden Collection by Chris Olson

My Midnight Garden Collection is influenced by the winter florals trend that is dramatic and a bit moody with layers of bold textures and a rich depth that goes with the darker color palette.  I love working with deep plums, burgundies, dark jade greens and blues against a dark background. It's also fun to add that pop of orange into the mix. 

Creating glow-in-the dark palettes is my take on a fresh and energetic way to interpret romantic florals. All of the designs in this collection are hand rendered prints with a digital twist.
