  • Botanical Style – Selina Lake

    The first chapter, Botanical Inspirations, takes a look at the ingredients of the look—antique botanical prints and artworks, flower stalls, potting sheds, and houseplants—and draws upon these sources for fresh ideas to transform your home into a leafy haven. Moving on, Selina explores five different facets of the botanical look. Vintage Botanicals celebrates the gentle palette and delicate style of floral watercolors and pressed flowers, while Boho Botanicals has more of a free-spirited 1970s vibe, with jungly potted plants, flower garlands, and even a decorated teepee. The varied textures and contemporary appeal of Industrial Botanicals give it a modern edge, utilizing materials such as polished concrete, rusted metal, and laboratory glass and combining them with peeling paint and vintage science posters on the walls. Next, Natural Botanicals is based around antique botanical prints and museum specimen cases for a nostalgic feel while Tropical Botanicals features bold leafy prints, spiny cacti, and palm trees for a distinctly glamorous retro flavor. Throughout the book, Selina‘s imaginative ‘DIY Makes’ and insightful ‘Style Tips’ provide a wealth of inspiring suggestions for how to recreate the textures, tones, and ambiance of Botanical Style in your own home.
