A nursery design should calm baby and parents alike. A soft, neutral color palette accented with botanical artwork does just that. Hang framed prints symmetrically above the crib for a look that feels both clean and organic. This is also a great idea for the perpetual houseplant killer – you get the color of nature without the upkeep.
A pair of butterfly botanical prints hang above a neutral sectional in this cozy, tropical sitting area. The wicker coffee table and graphic throw pillows fit the tropical theme but offer an updated, polished look.
A little color goes a long way in this small bedroom. Botanical prints, floral pillows, crisp white bedding and a wood headboard are set against light yellow paneled walls for a classic cottage-style look. The wall art and lamp sconces make the space look polished, yet casual.
Botanical prints like these are fairly easy to find at thrift and antiques stores, and they can incorporate an old-fashioned luxury into the bedroom. Framed above the bed, they add a sense of nature and calm. “Painting everything ivory and white and the curtains the same color sets off the dark silhouette of the furniture,” says Susan Sully, author of “Past Present: Living with Heirlooms and Antiques." The Jenny Lind Spool bed, an old traveling trunk and shiplapped walls create a cozy feel.
