Below are a selection of prints which are bold, beautiful and botanical…

  1. THE BLACK PALM POSTER

Full of mystery and intrigue, this moody print adds impact to your wall. This shady colour palette will work with pale or dark paint finishes.

I love the ombre gradient effect background in the print. I have a thing for ombre in all forms”

  1. THE INFAMOUS ETHEREAL CACTUS

Cacti are everywhere at the moment. I can see why – they instantly remind us of some far away desert with scorching heat and blinding and bleaching, bright sunlight!

They are visually very graphic whilst also being quite soft (despite the spines obvs!) and organic looking.

This print works well in a paler and calmer environment as you can see here against a dove grey painted wall. Pastel shades such as candy floss pink or lemon yellow would also compliment the sagey green colour of the cactus.

  1. THE MONOCHROME MONSTERA

Instant scandi appeal with this black and white monstera print. I am in love with the shape of these leaves and they look great on any wall. This interesting shaped leaf works well with anything retro or vintage as well as bringing a Scandinavian style room to life.

This print would be a show-stopper in any gallery wall – especially one with black and white photography or bold quotes!

  1. 1800s VINTAGE BOTANICAL ILLUSTRATION

7465_3

Since I can remember, I have been in love with these vintage hand drawn illustrations from the 1800. They are so detailed and intricate and against the white background look timeless and work in any space. They remind me of far away places, discovery and adventure and would compliment any eclectic home.

This one is a drawing of a chili plant and there is something very whimsical and intruiging about the shape of the leaves and the dashes of colour.

  1. SIMPLE EUCALYPTUS STYLING

8174_5

Sprigs of eucalyptus can be seen adorning a whole host of environments at the moment. The round leaves are always a popular choice as an alternative to a vase of flowers. If you want something which will last a little longer, this print is for you.

I love the watercolour detail in the print above. It is simple but very effective. Would look great on its own in a bathroom or bedroom. Something quite romantic and elegent about it. Whilst still looking contemporary and fresh.

So there you have it – 5 easy ways to add some botanical elements into your home by showcasing some beautiful prints. Happy Hanging!
