Trending Now: Botanical Sketch Prints

I’ve noticed a lot of goods coming out of retailers these days that use botanical sketches in cool ways- from bedding to rugs to personal accessories. I have always loved using botanical prints in my work, such as in my guest room below, but haven’t used them in any other application other than wall art.

I came across this adorable bedding from IKEA in the new O Magazine and think it is perfectly darling for a little girls room (I’d pair the set with bordered sheets in green or pink and a solid blanket, to keep it from getting overwhelming!)

Pottery Barn has a black and white version if that’s more your speed!

Madeline Weinrib just released a new collection of rugs using botanical influence.

Etsy is CHOCK FULL of prints should you want to go the more “classic” route- but I love these sepia and black and white versions for a slightly more modern look.

Steven Gambrel famously wallpapered an old powder room of his in the Hamptons with actual pages from a book of botanical illustrations.

You can get a similar look with this paper! Great for tiny spaces like closets or powder rooms.

I spotted these ceramics on Etsy that I think are so cool- modern meets rustic.

Fern illustrations have always been popular- love the idea of using pillows like these in a sunroom (room design by Markham Roberts)

Little accents like phone cases (left/ right) in these prints are cheery…

And this book look gorgeous on a coffee table (I have it!) and these wellies are to die for.

What do you think of this little spring trend? I know its very “Florals for spring? Groundbreaking” but as I like to say, there’s nothing wrong with a little pretty!

  1. just ordered the ikea bedding for my twin girls. We painted twin wood poster beds green for their new big girl beds. I’ll keep this new comforter at the end of the bed over a white coverlet. Thank you so much for this suggestion!

  2. If you like botanicals, you have to check out Laura Zindel’s pottery! She’s based in southern vermont and does beautiful work that is available in stores around the country or on her website: http://www.laurazindel.com

  3. Ground breaking … no, but inspiring, yes!
    I pinned the Ikea set and may use them to make pillow covers for my own take on botanical pillows. Loved the Pottery Barn set; they look very “toile” to me.
    I have a book of botanical mushroom drawings; an old book surplussed by the library (snatched it up at their sale for $2). I know I want to do something fabulous with it … don’t worry people, it was rebound in an ugly but sturdy binding many decades ago, I’m not destroying something pristine. It’s nearly all in beigey-mushroom tones. No surprise there. Holding onto it while I find just the right way to make it wonderful…

  4. These are wonderful. I appreciate things that are timeless and not likely to go out of style and be embarrassing before they wear out.
    Of course botanical prints are classic.

  5. Speaking of flowers, I want to highly recommend a book I just picked up called The Flower Workshop by Ariella Chezar – the writing, photos, floral arrangements and the quality of the book itself are beautiful. I think you would enjoy it if you haven’t stumbled across it yet…

  6. You’ve probably seen it , but Farmstead Table has a gorgeous, large-scale botanical drawing up front.

  7. I recently purchased Botanicum from our school book sale to share with my daughters, who are 4 and 6. It’s a great introduction for children!

  8. Love botanicals! I think they bring some nice life to a room. My mom also uses old books to frame botanical prints out of – they always look awesome! I did it too from a 1950’s book on flower arranging that I found at Goodwill :)

  9. So many amazing ways to incorporate botanical into your home decor. I always put up prints in the fall I feel as though it brings a nice, crisp flair to my home decor.
