Stylist Selina Lake meticulously breaks down all the ingredients of botanical style —from antique botanical prints and artworks, flower stalls and potting sheds, to houseplants and arrangements —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 watercolours 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, utilising 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 flavour.
