Liz Poole, known for her work creating costumes for musicals, theater, and most recently the Netflix period drama Bridgerton, is always looking at her own country garden in Sussex, England, for creative inspiration. Within her Velvet Linen line, she has launched various collections that include pillows, clutches, quilts, and home accessories, all influenced by flowers and foliage that change throughout the seasons. Her newest, The Jewel Collection, launched in October, just in time for holiday gift giving.
