I love using botanicals in design. Botanicals are drawings of plants that tend to be very accurate portrayals originally used for educational purposes. Based on my research, they first gained popularity around the 15th century. Artists often traveled to far away lands, drawing and painting exotic plants. People were fascinated by them, since the plants drawn were ones that most people had never seen in person. I love the history of these prints, and love the simplicity of the design. Usually just one plant is featured in a drawing.
I think they add a cheery, yet classic air to any room. You can add botanical illustrations in artwork or on pillows. Below you can see flowers on pillows. They add color to a room without being ‘too much.’
Here’s another pillow,
and another one.
You can also use framed prints which is the most common way you can find botanicals. I love finding a set of pillows or artwork. When displayed in a grouping, I think they have a much bigger impact. This set is my favorite! If you can find a set of prints, that may be all you need for the entire wall.

I absolutely love your store, Anita! I’ve been very happy with all of my pillows, and the tea towels. The fabrics are beautiful to look at and to touch. The workmanship is excellent. My only problem is that I want to buy it all! The new site looks wonderful. Congrats! I hope you can get that nap!
Hi Anita, I just now set up a new account with your store and wanted you to know I got a “404 – page not found” message on both the My Account and Wishlist pages. I know this is a work in progress but wanted you to know.
The store looks GREAT!
I love your pillows! I like the dahlia! They reminded me of one of mine, so I just had to post on Instagram and tag you…. (I don’t know what flower is on mine).
Your new website looks great!

I just signed up for your new store, went there to shop for the botanical pillows on sale today, and could not find them. Also, there is no “search” button. What else can I do? Judith C
Judith, I sent you an email also. The search bar is at the top of the page. Here’s a link to the botanicals also. https://bespokedecor.store/search?type=product&q=Botanical
