The walls and ceiling of the tent-like room on the first floor are embellished with paintings of bamboo, nasturtium and convolvulus. These are believed to be the work of Princess Elizabeth, who is known to have added floral garlands to wall panels in Frogmore House at Windsor. She, the Princess Royal, and the Queen were taught flower painting by Francis Bauer, Kew's resident botanical artist.
