I have been collecting botanical prints for as long as I can remember. Some are finds from London, England back in the 70s and some are just reproductions that I love.
The details on the prints are extraordinary, and they fit with most styles and décor.
These days, you can find beautiful botanical prints at Pottery Barn or Ballard Designs. They offer large and smaller formats for use in almost every color scheme. Also, Wayfair has some really attractive prints at reasonable prices.
I have to admit that I have several sets of dishes and one of my favorites is Botanica, Country Collection by Villeroy & Boch. Each place setting features a different variety of botanical.
Villeroy & Boch have been producing premium porcelain and ceramics since 1748. There were V&B ceramic tiles on the Titanic, custom dinnerware specially designed and on the Orient Express and V&B can be found on the Pope’s table at the Vatican. Gotta feel pretty special eating off of these beauties.
My love for buffalo plaid and all things with a country European flair allows the botanicals to blend nicely with my décor. I have them hung in several rooms in our house.
I also love Impressionist paintings and beautifully colored watercolors. We tried taking a watercolor class at the Bonnet House; here in Fort Lauderdale a couple of years ago. In attempting to learn to paint watercolors, we appreciate these masterpieces even more. Needless to say, no one will be clamoring to get their hands on any of the items that we painted. Oh well, I guess we need to leave it to the real artists.
Why not try to incorporate some botanicals into your home. I assure you that you will appreciate looking at them every day.
