Design Development - initial ideas

I have been playing around with some design ideas using Photoshop for the past few days and feel I have created some really interesting initial designs.
I wanted to create designs that have quite a dreamy, mysterious feel taken from my visit to The Lost Gardens of Heligan in Cornwall - the grounds of a large country house, which was known as the “Sleeping Beauty” after being neglected for hundreds of years, overgrown with weeds but has now been revived, full of beautiful florals.

I love the colour scheme; I think it is dark and sophisticated with hints of brightness which attract the eye.
I am excited to continue working with design development and pushing these ideas even further to create a range of unique, creative furnishing fabrics.
