Private Life of Plants


Private Life of Plants

by Bielle Ross & Tara Carmichael


Here is your laboratory of discovery; your quiet retreat where the existence of nature is encapsulated by intrigue and exploration the Darwinian world of an eccentric botanist.


Always observing, collecting and reflecting, you will experience the world through the nature-obsessed eyes of a scientist. Trespass comfortably through the collection of old globes, vintage textbooks and prints, bell jars, beakers, clocks, speciments and beautiful botanical illustrations. The curious artefacts reflect an unexpected compilation of old and new, found and manmade – all sourced from near and far.


In celebration of this love and respect for nature, Bielle Ross & Tara Carmichaels’, The Private Life of Plants, has a strong green conscience, while retaining a sense of effortless luxury. A reclaimed parquet floor is paired with eco-friendly paints, restored cabinetry and responsible organic and naturally textured fabrics.


Look at life under the microscope in this whimsical trailer with a gentle pleasing aesthetic – and listen carefully… you may hear the whisperings of the secret lives of plants.
