Big Botanical Style

Last week we talked about the power that a simple large leaf arrangement has to spruce up a room, and the same holds true for big botanical prints — with the added bonus of staying fresh all year.

Like many over-scale mono-types and most limited-palette abstracts, large botanical prints add a graphic appeal without dominating a room, and can look at home in both modern and traditional leaning rooms. However, the size gives the prints a more contemporary look than the groups of smaller botanical prints we're used to seeing in more classically styled homes.

The talented Lauren Liess, who always seems to be whipping up some creative and budget-friendly solution, created her own botanical art for a client by having a printer enlarge leaves that she picked from outside the family's home on 3½" canvases (picture 4). Check out the rest of the nature inspired room at Pure Style Home.

However, if you're looking for a ready-made solution, check out art.com's selections. Some are of that distinctly doctor's waiting room variety, but there's a great variety of nice ones.
