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!

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…

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!
