The Beauty of Botanicals

I have long loved classic botanical prints, and am now trying to find the right spot in my house to use some.

This room by Erika Powell is one of my all time favorite uses of this kind of art (I’ve read those are super affordable posters- but I cannot find them online anywhere).  With the grasscloth and white upholstery it’s a modern take on traditional.


A huge grid of smaller prints hung above a green velvet sofa is a showstopper.


Lauren Liess used some old school botanical charts to add bold color and pattern above a simple sofa.


You probably have seen these beauties in the Wisteria catalog.

Clean black frames make this grid arrangement look crisp and modern and fills an open white hallway nicely.


Here is a roundup of some really affordable and great options to get this look in your own home!

  1. I searched high and low for the first botanicals. yes, they’re posters. They’re perfect for my master bedroom. Sadly they are discontinued. (Search Thornton gunnera. Let me know if you ever find them!)

  2. These botanical prints would be lovely in your newly renovated basement. White walsl with green accents to keep it bright and cheery. Noticed a green velvet couch at Domino!

  3. This is why I love your blog- best post!!! I love botanicals and have wanted them for my office which has grasscloth walls but was so overwhelmed on finding a set. Merci

  4. Not sure if you are familiar with the site but it has hundreds of vintage posters free for printing . You can send them to an office supply store like Staples and have them done in an engineer print for a large size.

    1. I was just coming to comment about Vintage Printables as well. Here’s the link to ferns on their site, but they have a ton of other stuff as well. The site is a bit difficult to navigate but it’s fun to check out everything and all of it is free – they’re prints on which the copyright has expired so now they’re in the public domain and available to use, print, duplicate, etc. – all for free. I used their blue seaweed prints a few years ago – sent them to a print shop to be printed and then used the inexpensive Ikea frames. I had a really nice looking wall of framed seaweed prints for less than $100.

  5. This is timely — I was searching “modern botanical prints” just yesterday and was overwhelmed. Thanks for rounding up some lovely options!

      1. I ordered the botanical posters from this company only to have them email me and say they don’t have them and can’t get them. This was about a month ago. I don’t know why they’re still showing them available on their site.

  6. Do you ever use Wendover for client art? They were our favorite art source for prints when we had the business. They may have some amazing prints. We found our best art in Atlanta over High Point!
