Gathered by Mary Norden and Polly Wreford


I met Mary Norden at a couple of years ago at a friends dinner party and could tell she was a kindred spirit. Mad about flowers, a dog lover, a textile collector, passionate about colour and pattern and inspired by imagery that tells a story, I wasn’t surprised to learn she worked as Red’s Interior and Food Director when it was one of my favourite magazines.

She also worked on the Sunday Times Style, You Magazine, Homes & Gardens and House & Garden, as well as for companies such as Swarovski, Colefax & Fowler, Boden, Jo Malone and Laura Ashley and has published 11 books on interiors, lifestyle and textiles.

Gathered is a collaboration between Mary and photographer Polly Wreford, featuring photographs about the joy and beauty of flowers, most of which were grown by Mary in her East London garden.




Mary and Polly have worked together for many years and this is their first self published book together. Available to buy on Us Publishing, all of the images are also available to buy as prints.
