Inspired by: Black Botanical Posters


Jenny posted about black botanical posters a few weeks ago, and I've been meaning to share I great source I found through Nicole. The Evolution Store's scientific German educational charts were illustrated during the 1950's and 60's and are available in two sizes. I especially like Dog Rose and Apple Blossom (below).

So pretty! In the same vein, I just designed my sister's home office (she's a brand-new doctor!) with black images of skeletal diagrams. Kind of quirky but kind of amazing at the same time!

I am not a lover of much green in a room but that kitchen is so pretty with that green floor !
The botanical is perfect.

Pink Wallpaper said...

that kitchen in my old neck of the woods has been a favorite of mine...and one of the reasons is that black botanical and how they framed it!! i actually love the whole house!

MB said...

I love the botanical prints and nautical ones as well. I'm going to be framing some prints for our entry way this summer.

I love the beautiful saturated colour. However, the black background is somewhat sinister. It may sound weird to those that love these posters but I can't get beyond the black background. Botanical prints and black conjures occult. Anyway feel that way?

I love how the floors and the green in the print go together- what a lovely combo!

Too darn pretty! A little like having grass in the kitchen but without the mowing! Shiree'
