Trend alert - Botanical Prints

When the house to home network tweeted this image above asking if people loved or loathed botanical prints I held up my hand to declare my love. For days I had been researching Redoute rose prints. Pierre-Joseph Redoute was a French artist of the late 18th and 19th century. He produced a book called Les Roses and here are some beautiful images from said book.

I had originally been inspired by this image I found on Pinterest originally from Pluuperi and wanted to find out where I could get some beautiful rose illustrations which led me to Redoute's Les Roses (ebay does a nice line) . 

But you don't need to go down the pink floral route to follow this trend. Here are some rather lovely neutral interiors that incorporate it.

What I really like about this trend as you can go really chintz or quite minimal with these prints What do you think? Do you love or loath?

  1. I'm probably somewhere between love and loath. I really like that first image but something bothers me when I look at the others.

  2. Hi Rebecca,

    I'm definately a fan of this! Especially when the pictures are from second hand markets and put together. Saw a similir shot on the blog of a Dutch stylist which I loved:
    Your first Pinterest shot I like the most. Unfortunately I'm not allowed to buy anymore florals & prints since it's getting a bit too much in my house. My challenge this year: also keeping it serene ;-)


Thankyou for your comments :)
