Botanicals are certainly not a new motif in home decor, but this recent trend takes leafy motifs into a fresh, more modern space. Unlike the light and bright tropical patterns of the past, this look is lush, sophisticated, and more than a little dramatic. Think fantasy jungle vs. summer garden, with a rich and deep palette of saturated blues, greens, and black. Here's how to get the look, no matter what your regular style might be.
