From bouquets to botanical art ...

Maybe it's the wedding planning, but I seem to be having lots of botanical desires. Weeks of searching online and in magazines for wedding bouquet and table centerpiece inspiration has given me a serious case of 'flower brain.'

Plans for our daughter's vintage garden wedding are coming along beautifully. You can check out our Pinterest pins here. There's an upside to my wedding shopping: I've found other treasures during my hunt for vintage vases at one of my favorite thrift stores. I came across a set of eight framed botanical prints. Scored!

I think they look lovely in my freshly painted breakfast room above. (By the way, if you follow this blog you'll see the butter yellow wall paint I selected for my kitchen/breakfast area.) I completed the painting, hung the prints, then, finished the chair cushion upholstery. Done!

Botanical prints have such a timeless and classic feel. I've blogged about my botanical love several times. It's fun to revisit those inspiring photos (here and here) of botanical art contributing to beautifully decorated spaces.

Framed or unframed art from an earlier era, or freshly pressed flowers between glass, all speak of discovery and beauty. I find living with nature so inviting.

Having 'flower brain' isn't so bad. It may be contagious, but don't worry. At least it's not fatal.
